Well, now we can add Astroneer to that lineup with this week’s Automation update, which lets you sit back on your space lawnchair and let the game do all the busywork for you.

Manage cookie settings Released for free this week, Astroneer’s Automation Update adds half a Factorio‘s worth of generators, printers and robot arms to the cutesy space sim.

Mechanical arms can then pop these materials into new resource canister, with a whole series of buttons, repeaters and cabling available to create ever-more-elaborate pipelines.

Astroneer is one of the nicer space-bound survive ‘n’ craft ’em ups out there, though it was a little slight in stuff to do when it left early access last year.

Full patch notes can be found over on the Astroneer subreddit, while Astroneer itself can be picked up on Steam or the Humble store.
