Final Factory is a sci-fi management sim that blends real-time strategy gameplay and bullet hell combat.

It’s time to look to the vast reaches of space for resources in sci-fi management automation sim Final Factory.

Final Factory will have players creating a massive network of space stations and commanding an impressive fleet to take over the cosmos and eventually travel through a black hole.

In Final Factory, players will be able to create a space-faring empire as vast as the cosmos. From interconnected space stations to massive combat fleets players will take over the stars all while managing and automating every aspect of their mega structures. Discovering new technologies and implementing them will be key to players evolving their space stations. Delve into a branching skill tree to discover ways to improve your fleet or smooth out automation. 

It's not all base building and resource management in Final Factory, as you are not alone amongst the stars and the other inhabitants aren’t happy about your presence. Defend your empire against swarms of hostile aliens in fleet gameplay that blends RTS and bullet hell combat. Direct your ships to thwart enemy onslaught to keep your factory and space stations running and primed for expansion. As you defeat enemies, you’ll learn valuable research and gain access to upgrades for your ship and ancient portals for fast travel; keep exploring the universe to get random loot drops that will benefit your factory.

Developer Never Games is excited to bring a first glimpse of their sci-fi management automation sim in the demo for Final Factory.

The Final Factory demo has a universe of features for players to explore, including multiple game modes and a staggering 25 hours of gameplay. Players will be walked through the game’s features in the tutorial and will then be sent out into the cosmos, able to explore the entire playable map, create and manage their own logistics networks, upgrade their fleet, and use early factory building tech.

Final Factory challenges players to create a space-faring empire as vast as the cosmos. A branching skill tree allows players to discover new ways to improve their fleet as well as smooth out the automation of their mega factories. Players will manage interconnected space stations, massive combat fleets, automating every aspect of their factories, all while defending their empire from alien onslaughts. There’s a whole universe to explore in Final Factory, and players will have the entire map open to them in the game’s demo. Exploring the distant corners of the universe may net players random loot drops that will benefit their empires.

Players of the Final Factory demo will be able to choose between multiple game modes. For those wanting to avoid combat, there is pacifist mode. For others looking for a bit of action, the standard and suffering modes offer varying degrees of enemy difficulty. Featuring fleet gameplay with bullet hell combat, players will need to direct their ships to fend off incoming invasions. With every victory, players will be able to learn valuable research, gain access to upgrades for their ships and ancient portals to allow for faster travel.
