Satisfactory, the new game by Goat Simulator developer Coffee Stain Studios, will launch in early access 19th March, exclusively on the Epic Games Store (it is exclusive for 12 months - Coffee Stain has done a very nice Q&A video discussing the decision).

It's very different to Goat Simulator. Satisfactory is a bigger game about building epic factories across lush and exotic alien planets, you absolute monster. It's like a cross between No Man's Sky and Factorio, and the viewpoint being first-person really hammers home the scale of your creations - they're enormous!

You'll explore the planets to find new resources, including local wildlife and plantlife - which aren't always very friendly - and you can invite your friends in (up to four) if you so wish.

Satisfactory has been in closed alpha since autumn last year. It will be priced €30/$30.

I've seen more of it in action in a demo but I can't talk about that yet. Suffice to say: it's got real promise.

This is the early access date trailer, but the video below has actual gameplay and gives a better idea of what to expect.
