Factorio achieves phenomenal results. The success of the Czech studio

Factorio is an independent economic strategy developed by the Czech independent studio Wube Software. The production quickly achieved success and it seems that its future is painted in positive colors.

Factorio is an unusual economic strategy. The player’s task is to create the most efficient system based on conveyor belts. To do this, make sure that the factory does not run out of electricity or raw materials, which we do by adding more buildings. In addition, players must ensure the safety of a company that is being created on a not very friendly planet. It is up to us how we will achieve our goals. The developers have left a lot of freedom to the players, making the gameplay even more engaging.

The premiere of the full version of this Czech strategy took place in August 2020, although looking at its graphics, you could say that it is a good 20 years older. However, the players appreciated it not because of the appearance (although the use of sprites certainly appeals to older fans Factorio), and by how much you can get involved in it. This is evidenced by the very good sales results of the game.

Wuble Software boastedthat last Christmas the threshold of 3.5 million copies sold was exceeded Factorio. At the end of February 2022, the developers reported that the game had sold 3 million copies, which means that 500,000 copies were added in ten months. playing. The Czechs emphasize that since the early version of the game was released, i.e. from 2016 until now, Factorio was not made available as part of any promotion, so players are ready to pay full price for this addictive strategy. In Poland, the game can be purchased at Steam for PLN 120.

in 2022 Factorio also moved to a new platform – Switch. According to Wuble Software, the game has sold 40,000 copies on this platform. copies, of which approx. 40 percent. orders come from Japan.

In the near future, the developers will focus on preparing support for controllers on PC and Steam Deck and full keyboard and mouse support for the Nintendo Switch version. However, there are no specific dates when these innovations will be implemented.

Factorio – mods are a hit

From the report prepared by Wuble Software, we learn that the community Factorio she is very involved. In 2022, there were 1,221 mod makers who created 1,686 new mods and 7,227 updates to existing mods. Nearly 639,000 players have downloaded a total of almost 42 million mods.

Factorio is undoubtedly a huge success of Wuble Software. As the creators of the strategy themselves note, for years they have been able to maintain the sales trend at the level of approx. 500,000. copies per year and hope that in the future these numbers will not be reduced. Considering how active the community gathered around is FactorioAll that remains is for us to wish everyone that the production lives as long as possible.
