Let’s Play Factorio – Episode 02: Hello everyone, welcome to Factorio – a game all about automation. The idea behind Factorio is the build machines and research technologies so that your intelligence and engineering will work to gather resources for you – allowing you to use your time to research and build and expand. The ultimate goal in this series, is to build and launch more rockets than hours played total – so the longer it takes to get there, the more rockets we’ll need to launch!

This series is brought to you by gman and Jaz – two members of the HotTips! community and long-time followers of the channel who are contributing in making it great!

Factorio is a game in which you build and maintain factories. You will be mining resources, researching technologies, building infrastructure, automating production and fighting enemies. In the beginning you will find yourself chopping trees, mining ores and crafting mechanical arms and transport belts by hand, but in short time you can become an industrial powerhouse, with huge solar fields, oil refining and cracking, manufacture and deployment of construction and logistic robots, all for your resource needs. However this heavy exploitation of the planet’s resources does not sit nicely with the locals, so you will have to be prepared to defend yourself and your machine empire.
