Factorio is a great sim game in which you build and maintain huge factories, starting off small but eventually spanning entire maps.
You mine resources, research technologies, build infrastructure, automate production and fight enemies. You use your imagination to design your factory, combine simple elements into complex structures, use management skills to keep it working and protect it from the creatures who don’t really like you.
Turning the unspoilt wilderness into a sprawling industrial complex is a surprisingly satisfying experience, like Sim City for industrialists. The way all your factories parts move is fantastic, with all the mechanical parts moving in unison, with one purpose – turning raw materials into product. This may be Greenpeace’s worst nightmare, but it’s shaping up to be an excellent game.
