Looks like it's automatically setting the player to invincible, and biters are programmed to run from things they can't kill.

What I really want to know is: Did you guys invent that 'offer', or was it a real email that you received?

Real offer, one of many.

I was expecting a Factorio versión like https://youtu.be/BeBdRETZ5fQ

That would be kind of cool :)


This post was written as a joke for April Fools' day. Nothing written here should be taken seriously.

No doubt you have heard about NFTs, the latest Blockchain innovation. With some big gaming companies exploring NFTs, where does Factorio stand?

We have received many offers. Some of the offers were quite silly, others very tempting. Since we have many Blockchain enthusiasts on the team, we decided to explore the subject ourselves. After consulting with some industry-leading experts on Discord, this is what we came up with:

Non-fungible blueprints

One of the many subjects of debate within the team is t...

We are a games company based in the Czech Republic. Russia's invasion of Ukraine affects us directly. We have team members there, we have friends there, and we get information first hand. There is no excuse for the actions of the Russian army, they have little regard for civilians including children.

We support Ukraine and have made contributions to relief efforts.

We support Russians that stand against the actions of the Russian government.

You can help too, even if it is just with your voice. World leaders are listening: every voice counts.

The Czech National museum, which has bullet scars from the Russian invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968.

Please, keep the discussions about the world events (if you can't help it) specifically in threads related to this post, as we want to keep the rest of the content on topic.

I would love to see what a developer of Factorio would call an "average" base ;-)

The one in the video is the same one I used to test the battery.

would love to see the devs make a default steam input config.

I'm looking into it, but I'm not sure how it will turn out; that's why I didn't mention it in the post.

Wait... has Twinsen really only 352.8 hours of playtime and is missing two achievements?
Or do they have a dedicated account only for the Steam Deck?

You got me.
I have more playtime not on Steam, on the next unreleased version of the game. ;)

Today is actually the 6 year anniversary of Factorio launching on Steam, and just recently too we passed 3 million total sales (and we're even past 3.1 million at this point), so it is quite a milestone. It is great for us that the game is still selling consistently year on year, even though we never take part in sales or bundles.

Steam Deck support Twinsen

Today is the official release day of the Valve Steam Deck, so it seems fitting to talk about how Factorio performs and what our plans are.

Valve was nice enough to send us a devkit early on, so here's a recent video of me playing the game a bit.
