KnotBot

Posted on May 12th, 2020

From collecting buttons to solving tangled mazes, automate KnotBot on a quest of handcrafted puzzles.

This is a programming game with an interesting programming interface and a cute design but difficulty wise it appears to skew very young and doesn’t have a whole lot of content, which is a shame.

Build, Manage and Maintain a Lumber Mill deep in the Forest!

This is a factory building logistics game with tycoon elements to manage employees and products. Build a lumber mill in order to create and sell various wooden objects, all within a procedurally generated forest.

Good Company

Posted on May 6th, 2020

Good Company is a tycoon management game about founding a robot manufacturing empire. Grow your business; hire staff; automate production lines and optimize their output; invent new products and profit in an ever-evolving market. Can you build a Good Company?

I hadn’t intended to add this game to the list as it feels more like a tycoon game than a nerdy logistics/automation game. Initially you just hire staff who do most of the thinking themselves, but later on there are a few more in-depth automation/logistics elements so it might be worth a look.
