Thanks to a tip from madpinger in our Discord Channel, we were shown Kubifaktorium [Official Site]. It looks like a pretty interesting mix of a city-builder with elements of Factorio.

Developed by Mirko Seithe, the same developer who made BossConstructor which also supports Linux. Kubifaktorium was announced back in May and it seems quite far along, so I'm surprised we've only just heard about it!


  • Discover and colonize procedurally generated islands in four different biomes.
  • Build and manage complex and challenging production chains.
  • Automate your production using belts, cranes, train networks and more.
  • Defend your colonies and conquer your enemies.
  • Easy to understand but hard to master game mechanics.
  • Built-in mod support for new industries, goods, scenery, terrain types, localizations and more.
  • Made for Linux, Mac and Windows.

As a big fan of both city-builders and games like Factorio (lots of hours in it), this has certainly captured my interest. There's quite a few more videos on it now, like this one to show off the weather system and more on their YouTube channel.

Can't wait to see more of it! Not seeing any mention of a release date yet.

I am the owner of GamingOnLinux. After discovering Linux back in the days of Mandrake in 2003, I constantly came back to check on the progress of Linux until Ubuntu appeared on the scene and it helped me to really love it. You can reach me easily by emailing GamingOnLinux directly.

I'm all for automation if it removes the micro so you can focus on the building and managing of other priorities ^.^

Have to wait and see what it's like near completion.

Reminds me of Stonehearth (that we don't get on Linux). Looks really interesting.

Well , it's pre-Alpha , but it looks more complete than a lot of stuff i've seen on Steam
Looking forward to this.

I have over 1200 hours in Factorio and I love city builders. I want this so bad. Please don't fail us!
