Learning Factory Dev Diaries, June 2023 - Early Access Stage 3 Complete, Content Intensifies
Hey everyone! You know the drill: the full release is approaching, much stuff is being added to the game these months, and lots of polishing tasks lie ahead of us!
That said, this issue of Dev Diaries will have little text and lots of pretty pictures: last month was marked with not one, but two major updates, a new story chapter, a handful of new buildings, and a bunch of redesigned items!

Let's start with those buildings though: all of them will provide a lot of challenges and opportunities in the late parts of the game!
Gummy Press & Omniloom produce multiple types of High Quality items but require respectively exquisite ingredients. While Teleports allow you to travel between any parts of the map - given that you have enough Machine Learning capacity to afford them.
Lots of fun stuff is happening under the surface of Mars, too: there're now glowy plants for you to harvest & make into the finest cat goods in the Solar System:
Speaking of goods, the great redesign of in-game art continues! By now, most of the items you produce in the game, including Quality and High Quality items, have their own distinctive look! Within the next couple of updates, we'll complete our collection of uniqe-looking items (that is if we don't introduce more items - no immediate plans for that but who knows!):
Sorry, we won't be showing much of the new comics (except for the art we used for cover image above) - we wouldn't dare to spoil the fun of discovering them by yourselves! But we assure you, they're in the game: adding them allowed us to mark Stage 3 of Early Access as complete! It's been a bit more than a year since we've closed Stage 2 - we considered it a legitimate excuse to show you some images, all taken sometime in May of 2021, 2022, and 2023, respectively:
…here, have some more, wouldn't you:
And here's our roadmap, so you could appreciate the path we've come along with you, our awesome players:
See you with more Learning Factory news in July! In the meantime, you're always welcom to chat with us on our Discord server. Until we meet again!
