Satisfactory Has The Best Name At E3

Satisfactory is an upcoming game for the PC that’s about foraging for supplies, working as a team and then taking all that stuff and actually building something huge and complicated and functional with it.

There are loads of games that have you scavenging and constructing, from Minecraft on upwards, but those have usually been aimless adventures, with the goal being more bout creativity (or survival) rather than anything more complicated.

Satisfactory, however, has a point. You’re building a factory, and the stuff you build—which starts small but ends up being enormous—can be linked together to create optimal workflows. And when you’re done, it all looks incredibly...satisfying.

Here’s the official brief:

Satisfactory is an FPS open-world factory building sim. You play as an engineer on an alien planet as part of the ‘Save The Day’ program - a program whose goal is to construct a massive machine for a mysterious purpose. Conquer nature, build multi-story factories, and automate to satisfaction!

Looks cool! Here’s the trailer:
