DeFacto is a game about building a large automated factory chain.

You must install miners to collect raw resources, transform them in furnaces, and combine them in factories.
The final goal is to send rockets full of robots and by doing so continue to explore the galaxy. DeFacto is heavily inspired by the game Factorio.


Controls :
The game can be played either with the mouse or keyboard

Keyboard :
C : Use selected tool/Interact with factories
V : Open tool selection panel/quit menu
enter : Open main menu (save, load, toggle music ...)

Mouse :
Left clic : Interact/Use selected tool
Right clic : Open tool selection panel/quit menu

To construct conveyor, inserter or bridge :
you have to keep pressing C/left clic and then enter the direction (arrow key or mouse motion) where the conveyor/inserter/bridge will put it's products
if you only press c/left clic without entering direction, it will place the conveyor, inserter or bridge along the last used orientation

To save your game, press enter and select save (button C)

Bridges can also be used to take and insert product, and are faster than inserters.

Starting tips :
- start by opening the tool panel (V/Right clic) and choosing the miner tool
- place the miner onto a raw resource field (C/Left clic), the miner will start filling
- open the tool panel and select the inserter tool
- place the inserter against the miner by pressing and holding C/left clic and then entering the direction where you want to put the products
- open the tool panel and select the selling station
- place the selling station at the end of the inserter
- if the inserter is oriented correctly, it will start moving resources collect by the miner to the selling station and you will start gaining money
- once you have a bit more money, start putting raw resources into furnaces, the resulting products will sell at higher prices
- the next step is to use factories, choose the recipe (C/Left clic on the factory) and insert the required input products to make more advanced ones

Fun, kinda like a easier factorio. Finished it in one single playthrough (it means it's cool and fun)

Thanks, I'm glad you liked the game!

NuSan, I love all of your games, but know that I'm craving for a sequel for Fragments of Euclid. It made me an addict! I may even try to do a game with simmilar mechanics by myself.

Thanks for your kind words. I'm working on a sequel for FoE but it's not nearly finished. I encourage you to start working on a similar game, it's fun to play with those mechanics and there is so much to explore. Here is another game you may like to try: https://geckoo1337.itch.io/project-a also there is Antichamber and soon (I hope) Magnifold Garden.

I already started trying to code something similar, and I think I know how to make the teleportation thing but I have absolutely no idea of how you did the many reflections thing that you can see in "The Tower". That really blew my mind. I mean, when you look at a door, you see what's in front of the other door. I mean, again, in the tower, instead of seeing a wall, you see what's in front of the exit door in the next floor. You'r game did that in a great way, so much that it feels real.

Gosh I have so many ideas!

And thank you for those recomendations! I really love these kinds of visual games, where you need to see the world in a different way in order for you to finnish them. I also recomend you the https://xra.itch.io/memory-of-a-broken-dimension game, which is really interesting and has a very cool dark ambience. And also try https://ianmaclarty.itch.io/forests-are-for-trees . All of his games are really strange optical illusion things.

You got me curious so I looked at asset from Unity Store and there is quite some:

There is free ones like https://assetstore.unity.com/packages/tools/particles-effects/gater-portals-system-59185

This one seems really great (but not free) and can play on scale (spoiler for FoE episode 2 ...), and there is a demo only

https://assetstore.unity.com/packages/tools/particles-effects/portalkit-pro-vr-a...

Even if you don't use Unity, it can be great for learning. I saw video of Memory of a Broken Dimension but did not know it was out, I need to try it!

One more IMPORTANT thing; can I get the OST of Fragments of Euclid anywhere? I can't find it anywhere on the internet and I really, REALLY love it

You can find the OST, as well as other tracks, on this page from Legulysse, the creator of the sound track. http://legulysse.free.fr/?page=audio
I will also add the OST to the itch.io page of FoE today.

I.

LOVE.

YOU!!!

I'm terrible with this kind of game, but it doesn't change the fact it's really nice !

Wow good work

Fantastic work! Being a huge Factorio fan this made me smile and entertained :) Thanks!

Wow, awesome game, I love it!
