ReFactory

Hello everyone from ReFactory!

Do you want to build an amazing world that will work according to your laws? Then welcome to ReFactory, a sandbox strategy game where you have to build an automated factory on an alien planet.

The navigation system was destroyed and the spacecraft crashed. The crew is scattered throughout the unknown planet, most of the equipment is broken. You are the artificial intelligence of the ship. Your task is to build a city and restore equipment to find a team and return home.

Copper and iron ore, timber and crystals, granite and oil ... The extraction of these resources is only the beginning of the journey. You have to build equipment, conduct electricity, improve the performance of systems. With each step you will develop the city, although it will all start with a few granite stones.

Expand your boundaries! Gradually, you will open more and more territories, and this is a great opportunity for the construction of new factories and the growth of your city.

Produce more complex things in your own 2D world. Every resource, every new invention and building gives you tons of opportunities. Copper ore can be used to make wire, then make an electrically conductive cable, and then an assembly machine. So keep progressing!

Move from simple technologies to microelectronics, chemical reactions, explosives and plastics. Build a factory and then a whole network of factories. More technology means more opportunities and a higher chance of finding a crew.

Fight with them on your own and upgrade your skills. Building solid walls is the first step in defense. Create mines and powerful cannons, fight with chemical weapons and arm drones — your faithful assistants.

ReFactory is not just about building production sites. This is a world that lives by your rules and knows the cost of every mistake. Misuse of resources will stop development, and outdated technologies will prevent an attack from repelling. So think a few steps ahead and keep your factory safe.

Consider many factors to design your interaction processes: electricity conduction, copper recycling, plant acceleration, economic strategy. New information is introduced gradually, so you quickly get used to it and begin to navigate intuitively.



Unpacking

Unpacking is a zen game about the familiar experience of pulling possessions out of boxes and fitting them into a new home. Part block-fitting puzzle, part home decoration, you are invited to create a satisfying living space while learning clues about the life you’re unpacking. Over the course of eight house moves, you are given a chance to experience a sense of intimacy with a character you never see and a story you’re never told.



Tunche

Tunche is a charming, hand-drawn beat'em up hack and slash game with roguelike elements. Travel through 4 worlds, each filled with unique enemies, bosses, challenges, and stories.

Choose one of the five unique characters: Rumi, the sorceress, Pancho the musician, Qaru the bird boy, Nayra the warrior & Hat Kid from the highly acclaimed A Hat In Time.

To overcome the evil beasts of Amazonian forests you will have to learn the skills and ultimate abilities, that will take you further through the story with each playthrough.



Demon Turf

The Demon World is inhabited by all kinds of nasties... Most of them lumped into gangs battling for dominion, each led by its own head honcho. Yet even these bad dudes are no match for the Demon King himself! Instead the task falls to Beebz, a young demon barely a thousand years old, who decides it’s time for her to kick every turf leader’s butt and become the Demon Queen herself.

MARSUPILAMI - HOOBADVENTURE

Discover the Marsupilamis as you have never seen them before in an adventure full of surprises!

Punch, Twister and Hope are three Marsupilamis who live a peaceful life in Palombia. While the three companions open a cursed sarcophagus by playing with debris on a beach, they inadvertently release a mysterious ghost that puts a terrible curse on all animals. Fortunately for them, the Marsupilamis are immune. Our three heroes will have to go on an adventure and chase the ghost in order to ward off the spell.



Sherlock Holmes Chapter One

As Sherlock, your legacy is written by the decisions you make in this open world detective adventure. Deception, violence, and deduction are just a few resources in your arsenal—your mysterious companion and sounding board, Jon, is another.

Whether you choose brute force to solve problems or stay one step ahead of your enemies by using your wits to spot vulnerabilities, you decide what each situation demands as you hone your investigative skills. It’s time to confront your past so you can become the legend you’re destined to be.

As a cavalier young Sherlock on the precipice of adulthood, you’ll earn your reputation in a way no game or story has explored before. We’ve never seen the youthful arrogance and naiveté of the man before the legend—now you’re living it.

You never know where your next clue will come from. Explore and exploit the entire city in your pursuit of truth, using clues, rumors, disguises, tags, and pinned evidence to build a solid case within your mind palace.

Weapons might help you in a pinch, but there’s something to be said for style—and you have it in spades. Spot enemy vulnerabilities with your brilliant observation skills, or exploit the environment to take someone down while keeping your own hands clean.

Before John Watson, there was a different Jon - your best and only friend. But who is he, really?

Set in the 19th century, the vibrant island in the Mediterranean promises anything but paradise. Political corruption and crime run rampant while the islanders cling to tradition and eschew outsiders, making your job even more difficult.

There are two sides to every story, and the proud islanders have their own ideas about truth and justice. It’s up to you to decide whether uncovering the truth will do more harm than good—and how that will shape the man you’ll become.



Battlefield 2042

Battlefield 2042 is a first-person shooter that marks the return to the iconic all-out warfare of the franchise. Adapt and overcome in a near-future world transformed by disorder. Squad up and bring a cutting-edge arsenal into dynamically-changing battlegrounds supporting 128 players, unprecedented scale, and epic destruction.

The next generation of fan-favorites Conquest and Breakthrough features the largest Battlefield maps ever and up to 128 players. Experience the intensity of all-out warfare on maps filled with dynamic weather and spectacular world events.

Battlefield's massive, iconic sandbox mode returns – this time supporting 128 players on PC. The maps have been specifically designed for this vast scale, with action divided into "clusters" of various kinds. Also, the action now centers around sectors consisting of several flags instead of individual control points.

The return of Breakthrough sees two teams – Attackers and Defenders – battle over larger-scale sectors as the Attackers push towards the final objective. Each sector is designed to house a larger number of players, enabling more strategic choice and more flanking opportunities. Approach the capture areas from multiple locations and take advantage of more types of tactical possibilities.

Discover unexpected battles and enter the wide universe of Battlefield in a community-driven platform that gives you the power to change the rules of war. The possibilities are endless when you can customize weapons, gear, rules, and more in this creative sandbox mode. Replay classic experiences with select content from Battlefield 1942, Battlefield 3, and Battlefield: Bad Company 2, or leverage the modern content from the world of Battlefield 2042 to discover, create, and share something completely new.

A tense, squad-focused survival experience, Battlefield Hazard Zone combines edge-of-your-seat gameplay with the best of the Battlefield sandbox. Inserted as a four-member squad, you must locate and retrieve critical Data Drives scattered throughout the battlefield, while competing against opposing squads with the same objective and local militias. Succeed by gathering the Data Drives and choosing when to extract before a storm overtakes the area in this high-stakes, one-life experience. Every bullet, every skirmish, and every decision counts.



Farming Simulator 22

New machine categories and crops will add new gameplay mechanics to the experience.

Even run your farm cooperatively in multiplayer and extend the game by a multitude of free community-created modifications. Farming Simulator 22 offers more player freedom than ever before and challenges you to become a successful farmer - so start farming and let the good times grow!



Asterix & Obelix: Slap them All!

The year is 50 B.C. Gaul is entirely occupied by the Romans. Well, not entirely...
One small village of indomitable Gauls still holds out against the invaders.

Everything is falling apart! Our two heroes will travel all around the world to fight the Roman Empire in a 2D horizontal scrolling Beat Them Up game, completely hand-drawn and made in the purest tradition of the genre.

Enemies and wild boars will have to be cautious! Asterix and Obelix are back… And it's going to be another great fight!





Resident Evil 5

The Umbrella Corporation and its crop of lethal viruses have been destroyed and contained. But a new, more dangerous threat has emerged.

lashman, your work on these threads each month is, as always, wonderful, but even more so, just want to say again how lovely it is to have your presence, creating threads or not... and all of that. Thanks again!

Some month once again! All Forza Horizon 5 for me, I think - it seems I've now played over a thousand hours of FH4, somehow... so bring on Mexico, I'm excited.

Excited for FH 5 & SMT V this month. And maybe GTA, too. Will wait and see how it turns out. I wonder if SMT V will be playable day one on Ryujinx/Yuzu. I haven't used my switch since January. :p

Random, but is Steam chat laggy for anyone? It's always laggy for me. It's a bit annoying when typing and having to wait to see if I made a typo. I'm not sure if there's something I can do to fix it.

For that MS and Sega announcement.

Most likely it's the same thing that Nintendo and SIE said about how they will use Azure for gaming stuff. SEGA already uses Azure for PSO.


MFS is among one of the first games to make good use of Azure (remember back in 2013 and MS saying "the power of the cloud"? Well there it is).

So as of right now Nintendo and SIE have agreed to use it (mostly for handling back end stuff? Maybe not for their actual games? Do the Nintendo could based games use Azure?) SEGA seems to be the first pub/dev to say that they are also going to be using the same tech (they likely tested it with PSO and wanted to make it official to better support the features, is MS and stock holders hear that Azure is being used more for games and stuff will more money be invested into that tech?)

Yeah, looks like it's used for MMO or back end stuff. Nothing concerning normal players.

If the version of Control Ultimate Edition on Twitch Prime is a GOG key, it's going to be worth a dollar on the grey market. Crazy how 505 is willing to do that. I wonder what game they'll give Amazon next.

Squadrons ones were as low as 19c. I suspect some will be epic, not keys, just account linking. I didn't bother with the Aliens one last month due to that.

Right now Ghostrunner is 25c AUD, so about 20c USD

I'm thinking Rise of the Tomb Raider might be an EGS key, since it was just added to the store recently. I'm crossing my fingers for a GOG key for Control, since 505 refuses to give us an upgrade path to UE on Steam.

I don't understand some publishers, they complain about Steam 30% cut yet they are willing to sell keys in bulk for peanuts and watch their game being resold for cents. We saw how much Epic is paying for those free games and it is embarrassing.

"Most developers who launch their games for free on the store found that their sales on Steam and on console platforms actually increased after they went free on Epic because of increased awareness and so it's been a really positive thing and it's brought tens of millions of new users into the Epic Games ecosystem and that's been a wonderful thing for the company.

As I said I just find it strange that they complain about 30%.

Another great thread, @lash. Thank you for writing to many great OPs the year round.

Currently in the process of finishing up Super Mario Sunshine, and god that game has some devilishly difficult levels. Yet also surprisingly addictive. While a step down from the perfection that was 64, it's still a pretty neat game so far.

Great thread as always, lashman

I actually started to replay Resident Evil 5 just last week, as a Halloween treat. It's my first time playing it on PC, since I played it on X360 back in the day. I got to say, the turning and camera controls are a bit wonky when you play with a mouse, but you can't beat that improved accuracy (over a controller)!

I am intrigued by the 3D platformer game developped by Fabraz (Slime-san) and published by Playtonic Friends.
I am also interested in the two games published by Microids: Marsupilami (2D platformer) and Asterix (beat-them up).
