Satisfactory

Post by GreenGoo » Fri Mar 15, 2019 11:38 am

New first person factory builder that appears to be a cross of ARK and Factorio.

Visually, it looks great. More info later if others don't post about it first.

Has a bit of an Endless Sky vibe as well, at least the planet exploration aspect.

Thanks for posting the video btw.

I was in an alpha test this past weekend and I really liked it. It is a lot more Factorio than Ark in my opinion, more like a first person Factorio game. I didn't go very deep into the test because I was sold based on what I had already seen. It is very obviously influenced by Factorio, but it's a very different experience in first person.

Thanks for the insight. Videos of people actually playing looked like your standard (well, not standard, but typical? It certainly looks cool) survival game. Land alone (or with co-op, or coop, in this case) beat stuff up, harvest their organs, mine resources, build stuff, repeat. I get that there is a factory aspect involved, but early game felt (looked) very ARK/Don't Starve-ish.

Guess I'm not playing Satisfactory, they locked my Epic account. One day they might even get back to me on it.

Well that sucks. Any reason you can see?

I have the Epic launcher on my computer because I picked up one free game from them, but I'm ready to uninstall since it just seems like it is better to stick with Steam as it is the devil you know.

I keep it around for the free games. I grab all of them that happen by, even the ones I don't like. My taste in games changes with times, and what I despise now may be my favorite genre in the future.

Nope although it may have been broken into or something. I don't own any Epic games so it wouldn't have mattered.

It was probably multiple failed logins, then. A quick google search shows that, if so, it is only for a few hours.

Well I opened up a ticket. I didn't fail the login that much. Hmm, when I googled it I didn't come up with that, my google-fu must be failing :). I also just used my backup email to buy it, so at some point today it'll be done downloading.

Dev's earlier game. I spent some serious time with FCE.

[edit:] Actually Satisfactory is not related to DJArcas's FortressCraft Evolved, other than being a game in a similar genre. Apologies for the bad info!!

Should have guessed about the FortressCraft relationship, I knew the game reminded me of some other game even if only mildly.
