Factor Y allows you to easily plan, generate and re-use building blocks for your factory.

There's a free demo that offers everything the full version does except for being able to load savegames.

Note that Factor Y is also available on Steam https://store.steampowered.com/app/2220850/Factor_Y/

Please note that Factor Y is currently in Early Access.

(Late game progression of recipes and technologies is not well balanced, next versions won't be able to load old savegames, potential issues on Linux+Wayland)

Please let me know if you encounter any bugs or have ideas on how to improve the game.

Like the look so far. I’m interested in purchasing. Would a purchase here also include a steam key or is that a separate transaction?

That’s currently a separate transaction.
Sadly it’s in a weird state right now due to not being released on Steam yet.
I don’t plan on guaranteeing that a purchase on one platform will give access to all of them since that’ll be hard to manage properly.
In your case please send me a direct message somewhere. Sadly there’s no DM system on itch, but reddit (i3ck), Discord (I3ck#4799) or Mail (buckmartin AT gmail com) should work.

Thanks for replying. I’ve emailed you directly.


Interesting concept of the game, but the lack of explanation on anything makes it difficult experience for newbie. Some documentation on basics would help significantly (possibly html/pdf form)

Hi Toma400, there’s currently a guide at https://buckmartin.de/products/combine-and-conquer.html
I also added to my Todo to add the guide to the game’s archive as well
Edit: The guide is now included in the game’s files
