Play OverviewPlay Overview

Word Factori (2021) is a puzzle game where you use factories to create letters and words by a series of interrelated processes. You start with the letter i and chain together a system of satisfying factories to form words.

Play involves dragging and dropping the different factories into play and then connecting them to each other. The trick is to apply the correct rotations, reflections, bending and merging to craft the complex letters you need from that starting "i" character. You then combine these processes together to blue bins at the top of the screen to produce the required letter or word.

You can make your own challenges by selecting words to aim for. You can also take on the word of the day to compete with other players. As you play you find hidden letter art that you can collect in your scrapbook.

Factori is currently available on PC (itch), with plans to launch on Steam, iOS, & Android in the future.
