About this game

Can you build a self-sustaining factory without going bankrupt? You win the game once it's capable of playing itself!

"I like building forklifts." — Lenore

The Factory is a mash-up of a crafting sim, resource manager and clicker. Start by purchasing raw materials, building basic items to sell at a profit, and slowly working up the crafting chain to the more complex items. The highest tier items are called Builders, and are capable of manufacturing items for you. There's even a Builder Builder which manufactures more builders.

"NEED MOAR" — Richard

The Factory contains two In-app Purchases, a bailout and a supply package. Most players should never need these, and indeed if you run out of money you can just start over with a generous initial budget. However, if you just need a small bump to keep going, maybe a bailout is for you. Alternatively if you want to jumpstart a production run, a supply package can save you time.

This game was made as a hobby project more than anything else, and was inspired by the concept of a clicker that clicks for you.

Very nice game. A minor bug is that you cannot switch to another app and return, even viewing running apps for more than ~3 seconds will cause the game to start back from the loading page. All this does is maybe lose a slight bit of progress, but more annoyingly to me it means I can't have all of the resource requirement lists for every item like I would like.

Great game with a few issues: * The run in background doesn't work, instead app crashes once you leave it. * There are no notifications to hold the game open so it does run in the background. * Wish there was a way to enter a buy/sell quantity in addition to the +/- system. Ordering 999 of something requires holding down the + for a while.

I love this game, i love the element of buying a bunch of randome materials and seeing what they make from the basic 14 things you can make. The tutorial is easy, it explains the mechanics of the game in a non confusing way. Although i did find something that doesn't really make sense, and that is when you sell something that takes over 2 minutes, once it hits 2 minutes, it goes to 1 minute it makes you wait an entirely new minute then it counts down from 60. Just trying to help.
