Satisfactory

Explore an alien planet in first-person perspective, fight, and craft, and then build a complex factory with conveyor belts over different floors - that's Satisfactory.

When you land, you have nothing but a stun gun as a rudimentary weapon, a chisel, and a device that lets you place buildings at lightning speed.
Around you: a beguilingly beautiful landscape. In the sky, giant ray-like birds/beasts glide by, and on the ground, you'll repeatedly encounter both aggressive and peaceful little fellows. The plant world is not always kind to you either, green poisonous clouds are not good for your health.

Before the game, you can choose a starting region on the planet, including a huge area with lush meadows, a somewhat hilly landscape covered with clumps of trees, and a desert. All of this is the same map, by the way, so you can still easily explore the other areas later. The map is huge, though, and as I said, you're alone and have no transportation at first.

Satisfactory is such a game where we can live out our fantasies. There should be something for everyone. Later we can blast, build train lines, fly around with a jetpack and shoot our way through tubes.

Once you've built a mile-long conveyor belt through the wilderness and erected power pylons next to it, you'll feel like you've conquered this world for yourself. 

The other thing is that its great fun to see finished products being transported to their destination via conveyor belts for all eternity. What we build simply works. And that conveys a feeling of happiness - which is already expressed in the name of the game: the satisfying building of factories.

Satisfactory is still in Early Access, but it already looks very complete. Due to the many possibilities and the many biomes that the game offers, you can spend a lot of time here, sandbox-like. At the moment, of course, new content updates are released for free every few months - the game is still in development.
