What is Factorio?

Factorio is a procedurally generated, 2D, factory building game. In Factorio, you must develop automated factories which produce items of increasing complexity.

To escape the alien planet you find yourself on, create a factory capable of launching a rocket, but be careful not to anger any local wildlife along the way.

Easily expand the content available on your Factorio server by installing mods like the Alien Biomes mod, thanks to our modding support.
