Do you love automation ? If so you have to try Factorio
Factorio is a game in which you build and maintain factories.
You will be mining resources, researching technologies, building infrastructure, automating production and fighting enemies. Use your imagination to design your factory, combine simple elements into ingenious structures, apply management skills to keep it working and finally protect it from the creatures who don't really like you.
The game is very stable and optimized for building massive factories. You can create your own maps, write mods in Lua or play with friends via Multiplayer.

It's as if you were in minecraft and you had a mod to mine automatically, take the ore, make it burn in an oven, and then crafting diamond swords and enchant them. All of this without any action o.
This trailer sums up a lot of the gameplay :
Basically at first you have 2 coal automatic miners (they use coal as source of energy). And you need iron and copper to build some more.
So you place them on iron and copper and mine by hand coal, but then you can build a coal miner and transfer the coal mined to to the other miners. And then your basic production is automated.
Your ultimate goal is to build a rocket to get out of this planet but in order to get that you need lots of very complex materials so you need to automate everything.
It's fun and yet pretty challenging. Because there is always room for improvement.
There is a free demo that will get you through the basics demo
And the actual game costs about 20$. Whenever buying a game I like to weight its value like this : price = hours of fun.
For example if you buy an AAA game at 60$ and you finish it in 30 hours then the game was not worth it.
I paid 20$ for this game and I payed 100+ hours so I really recommend it to you guys :)
