I don't remember reading this with much attention back in the day, though I was the one who approved it when it was submitted. I read it and enjoyed it now, though (thanks to the "Looking for a good read?" box). This was a great review for what sounds like an interesting game. Even without screenshots, I feel like I got a good feel for how the game looks and plays... though if you can capture screens to go with the text, please do!

Thanks kindly chief.

I may have a go with the screenshots. It's actually tricky when Factory is now a Mac OS 'classic' ap. I have to run it under emulation on my current Mac, and within that, I'd probably have to take the screenshots with a classic screen-snapping ap as well.

Yeah I just tried this... if I take a screenshot from the Mac OS X side, the 256 colour palette of Factory is destroyed in the process. The only way to take a screenshot from in classic OS is by installing a 3rd party utility that also runs in classic. I have one which I installed in the past, but it has since entered the grumpy phase of being unregistered, and slaps huge watermarks on any images it takes. So without a genuinely old mac or a $40 spend on the software, I can't take screenshots from this game.

That's disappointing, bloomer, but I'm well aware of what a ginormous mess Classic can be. I suggest just buying yourself a really old iMac instead. That or... forgetting about those games and applications. *weep*
