Factorio Price Boost Next Month

Early Access game Factorio announces an upcoming change that will represent the final price of this manufacturing simulation as it emerges from Early Access (thank Jeremy). The Windows, macOS, and Linux game us currently $20.00 USD, but they say this will rise to $30.00 (or the local equivalent) on April 16th. They explain the change, and remind everyone they have a strict policy against discounted sales:
Version 0.16 has become stable, and this means that there is one last step for us to reach the 0.17 which will probably become 1.0 version. Then Factorio will finally step out of the Early Access zone. This will take some months but the roadmap is clear for us.

We feel that now is a good time to adjust the price of the game. The price of the game has been growing steadily together with the game becoming bigger, more stable and polished. After careful consideration, we have decided to set the new price of the game to 30 USD (or your regional equivalent). This change will become effective as of 16th of April 2018. This is the final Factorio price update, unless something unforeseen happens, so it will also be the price for the game for 1.0 release.

As you probably know we have a strict no sale policy. The game will not go on sale on Steam or any other platform. This basically means that purchasing before the 16th of April 2018 is the only way to buy the game cheaper than the increased release price.

I'm Factorio-curious, but not at $20. Sounds like I'll miss this one, like RimWorld.

I feel like I wasted $20 on Rimworld after getting caught up in the hype on this very board.

Factorio is something very, very different. I would even say better but that is a little unfair, I'm sure some people have 200 hours on Rimworld and love it like I love Factorio. It's worth an hour or two of your labour for sure. I guess if you are earning developing world wages it might not be worth it. It's cheaper than a bottle of cheap scotch in my part of the world and a lot more fun.

Rimworld is a fantastic game, but it is quite niche. It is like Dwarf Fortress. There is a style of play that is about observing, watching something happen. The kind of thing where you watch a bunch of Dominos fall over. Dwarf Fortress and Rimworld are very much about that. You build something up to ultimately watch everything fall apart in unique ways every time. That doesn't work for everyone.
