Publisher HandyGames (Through the Darkest of Times, Townsmen – A Kingdom Rebuilt) and developer Mirage Game Studios have just announced that their strategy building game Little Big Workshop will soon be making its way to Xbox One. Originally launched for the PC via Steam in October of 2019, Little Big Workshop will soon be available for the Xbox One starting on September 24 via the Microsoft Store.

Little Big Workshop is a strategy building game that has no plot, no storyline, no important characters, and no twists and turns. The premise is basically creating a factory right in your living room. Create factories with different specializations for different products such as “dressers, drones, rubber ducks, and electric guitars.” Source materials depend on the market’s demand, and players can earn profit from what they create and sell, build larger and better factories, hire more workers, rinse and repeat.

Little Big Workshop describes itself as a “a sandbox-experience where you think, ponder and poke at things until you get it to work the way you’d like.” Do everything at your own pace, whether it be expanding, creating new products, trying out new factory design layouts, and more. Progressing further into the game means unlocking more tools and machines to increase production, which is basically the game’s core loop.

Where Little Big Workshop excels is in its simplistic approach to the game when compared to other sandbox building games such as Kerbal Space Program, for example, or even Satisfactory, which is fun in its own right, but takes a bit of trial and error to get to what you truly want. Currently, its reviews stand at a respectable 77 on Metacritic, citing its art and strategy component as its stronger suits. It’s also sitting on a Very Positive Rating on its Steam page with over 1,000 reviews.

Little Big Workshop will be available for the Xbox One on September 24 for $19.99. Pre-orders are now available via the Microsoft Store. No news has been released yet whether it will also be made available for other platforms in the future.
