FOUNDRY Game Overview
FOUNDRY is a captivating first-person factory building simulation that takes place in an endless procedurally generated voxel world. In this immersive game, players must mine resources, craft machinery, and automate their research to progress through the game’s challenges. Strategic planning is crucial as players must build and manage a intricate conveyor belt and pipe network. They will also need to handle the complexities of a power system and continuously expand their production lines as their factory grows.
- Automate Everything – As a player starts with crafting items and machines by hand, they will soon witness the transformation into a fully automated sci-fi factory. It becomes necessary to expand the factory by incorporating more production lines, conveyor belts, and pipes, while ensuring a stable power supply to meet the growing energy demands. Research and advancement are key to optimizing the factory’s design and maximizing output.
- Expand Worldwide – Each new game offers a unique procedurally generated voxel world, where players have the freedom to shape it according to their desires. Blocks can be destroyed and new blocks can be added, enabling players to build their sprawling factory on a mountain, in the jungle, or even inside the depths of a mine.
- Play Together – FOUNDRY allows players to enjoy the game alone or cooperatively with friends. The multiplayer mode supports both online and offline play through LAN networking. Although there are currently no limitations on the number of players for multiplayer, the game is best suited for two to four players.
