Blundering around the internet as I usually do today and I stumbled upon a very interesting game called ‘Factorio’, which is a sort of cross between Minecraft, SpaceChem andTransport Tycoon.
The basic gist is that you are marooned on an alien planet and you have to find resources to build factories. These factories build other stuff and up you go through the tech tree. I’ve only spent a small amount of time with the game but it’s very interesting. The graphics are simple 2D sprites and the whole presentation is pretty primitive, but it seems to have bucket loads of deep gameplay in there.
The old website was getting my nerves and hadn’t been updated for ages, so I thought it was time for a breath of fresh air and a new website. Hopefully I’ll be a bit more active on this new site and tell you what I’m up to and generally rant about gaming stuff. I’d like to do stuff like a weekly blog entry but I know how hard it can be to do regular stuff like that, so I’d rather not promise anything and just see how things go.
Over the next few weeks I’ll try to move some of the content from my old site to this new one. This new site is a bit of a work in progress so don’t be surprised if things change or break.
