Goat Simulator studio Coffee Stain has unveiled gameplay for Satisfactory at E3, which looks like an enticing cross between Factorio and No Man's Sky.

Satisfactory is a first-person factory-building and planetary exploration game. You slowly harvest and build upon a 30 sq km planet of varying biomes, starting small, with a few structures, and eventually building something on the scale of a town, with railways shunting materials around.

Better yet, you can do this cooperatively with friends, riding around in buggies like good buddies. It's a weird mish-mash of building and exploration, and I'm smitten.

Satisfactory looks really ambitious, and sign-ups for a closed alpha, due in the coming months, are open now.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
