7. Infinifactory (2015)
‘InifiniFactory’ is one of those games that simply grows on you as you keep playing. It is not one of those titles that you expect to pick up and play a lot but the amount of hours you put into it are surprising. Developed and published by Zachtronics in the year 2015, it has managed to remain relevant in the community due to its addictive gameplay elements. At the base, it is very much a resource management sim but with puzzle elements added into the mix.
You play as a human who has been abducted by aliens and is being forced to create various equipments for them. You are completely under their control and therefore need to meet their requirements consistently, no matter what they demand. It is quite understandable that the items they are procuring will be used for subjugating more fellows like you, but there is nothing that can be done about it. You do not want to meet the same fate as the other humans you find scattered around the world, and hence, keep to your bidding silently.
What we found most interesting is the way the game manages to immerse its players into the world. A whole new glyphic language has been created for this purpose and the aliens will use that to communicate with you. You also gain access to a bunch of audio logs that helps you understand the storyline, and they are quite well made. This is one game you must try out if you like playing stuff like ‘Factorio’, mainly due to its puzzle based sim elements.
