It's a Steam Early Access game, but the video makes it look like an insanely cool game. The second video on the store page will blow your mind:

Just curious if anyone's bitten the bullet. My ONLY reservation is when they mentioned needing to protect your "base" and the "multiplayer" aspect. I was all on board for the machinery evolution bits, though.

Thoughts?

It looks really cool, but it looks like it would take the right kind of personality/mindset to get anywhere in that game, and I don't think I qualify, lol.

I played a bit of Factorio. I spent about 75% of my time planning, 20% of my time undoing stuff I'd done because I hadn't planned properly, and the rest of my time was spent looking over my accomplishments feeling momentarily proud and then realizing what I had was completely inadequate for anything beyond my immediate needs. Because I hadn't planned enough.

So, pretty much what JKatarn said.

There's a demo if you look around for it. I liked it but it's not a game that I would be good at. I do want to get it sometime at a discounted price though.

Wait, what? I heard about the Netflix thing but how does the music thing work? You get partial songs or what? - Fade2Scrub420

It's cool but ultimately I prefer modded minecraft. I haven't tried it with mods though. If you enjoy modded minecraft (specifically tech mods/packs) you'll probably like it. If you don't like that I'd stay away.

Minecraft's garbage but Factorio seemed cool.

I've never played it but I do like the genre. The setting just isn't for me.

Factorio is amazing! I have over 100 hours into it. It kinda has a steep learning curve so you will be rebuilding parts of your factory fairly often as you learn new things. Pretty much a base defense game at it's core. Through research in your factory, you unlock better equipment to fend off and fight the aliens.
