Paradox, known for their innovative and addictive games, has recently announced their collaboration with Channel 3 Entertainment on a groundbreaking project called Foundry. This first-person factory management simulation is set in an “infinite” world, where the possibilities seem endless. As someone who has struggled to break free from the grasp of Dyson Sphere Program, a game that allows you to build a factory around the sun, I can already feel the lure of Foundry tugging at my productive soul.

The visual style of Foundry is reminiscent of popular titles like Satisfactory and Minecraft. Its procedurally generated voxel-based world offers a diverse range of landscapes, from lush jungles to towering mountains and treacherous mineshafts. You are given the freedom to shape and manipulate the terrain as you see fit, placing and mining blocks to create the ultimate factory paradise.

Automation Galore

Foundry follows the classic formula of most factory management simulations. You start small, performing manual tasks and gradually upgrading your operations as you unlock new technologies. The goal is to reach a point where your simulation runs effortlessly, with the exception of the occasional hiccup caused by a clogged conveyor belt three miles away. Fear not, for Foundry offers solutions to automate various processes. Craft batteries, circuit boards, and more to unleash the power of robot helpers or team up with friends in co-operative multiplayer mode.

Playing Foundry with friends opens up a whole new realm of possibilities. While the developer has not set a specific limit on player count, they recommend playing with 2-4 individuals. In my personal experience, assigning roles such as maintenance, expansion, and observation can greatly enhance the efficiency of your factory. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of accomplishment when you and your team transform a once-pristine virtual world into a well-oiled production paradise.

Foundry is set to release on Early Access, allowing players to get a taste of its addictive gameplay before the full launch. Those eager to dive into the world of factory management can look forward to a demo, which will be available as part of Steam Next Fest on October 9th. Get ready to unleash your inner innovator and conquer the realm of endless possibilities in Foundry.

As I eagerly await the arrival of Foundry, I can’t help but imagine the countless hours I will pour into building my ultimate factory empire. The allure of creating an ever-expanding network of pipes, conveyor belts, and automated research facilities is irresistible. Paradox and Channel 3 Entertainment have truly outdone themselves with this unique take on the factory management genre. Prepare to immerse yourself in a world where boundaries are mere suggestions and the only limit is your imagination. Foundry awaits, ready to challenge and captivate even the most experienced factory simulation enthusiasts.
