Paradox Interactive has released a trailer for its new project, the Foundry sandbox from Channel 3 Entertainment. The game has been in development for several years, but is now moving towards its long-awaited release. The demo version is planned to be shown at Steam Next Fest, which will be held from October 9 to 16.
Foundry is a voxel sandbox that is very similar to Techtonica, released in the summer of 2023. The developers from Channel 3 Entertainment are clearly trying to get into the 3D Factorio niche and make their own analogue of Satisfactory, only with procedural generation. The main goal of the new game is to build factories, extract resources and, of course, automation. In a word, everything is the same, only in a more cubic world.
Judging by the trailer, Paradox managed to upgrade Foundry and take it to a new level – the old screenshots were more depressing than pleasing. According to the developers, about 15-20 hours of gameplay are ready at the moment. The main mechanics are completed, only additional content remains.
Foundry Early Access is both a minus and a plus for the game. Developers will be able to collect good feedback from players and greatly diversify the mechanics. But too often such projects never make it to full release. All that remains is to monitor the Steam page, wait for the demo date and hope for success.
