Factory Town is a cute and chill city builder which has you create a town/factory that focuses on production and automation.
The typical elements of the genre are present, including buildings, inhabitants, and resources, as well as technology and trade.
Inhabitants are the initial method of transporting goods, but the goal is to automate the process through special transportation systems you unlock with research.
What is absent in the game is any sort of deathly danger. The inhabitants of the town need to be kept happy with food, clothes, and other items, but they will not starve or freeze to death, and there are no hostile units in the wilderness. Factory Town is too cute for those.
You can customize the game through built-in features like custom maps and the Steam Workshop. There is also a Sandbox mode that simply focuses on building the town.
Overall, Factory Town looks like an interesting take on city builder with a couple little twists and cute graphics. It may be great for the fans of the genre, especially the ones who are looking for a less tense and more peaceful experience.
Those who like building logical systems will especially appreciate the game’s automation systems.
Developed by a single man, Factory Town was released as a 1.0 game on November 17. It is a cute city builder that does not have you worry about war or death.
Perfect for the fans of the genre who are looking for a chill experience, Factory Town is all about automation, resource management, and happiness.
