As Twitter announced tough new rules for advertising its competitors and look-alikes, open-world factory-builder sim Satisfactory jumped on the bandwagon with a hilarious post parodying the bizarre new frontiers.
The post refers to Twitter’s new policy not to promote other forms of social media. Satisfactory joked that none of their players would be allowed to play other games, a request that was as bizarre as it was hilarious.
“We know that many of our players play other video games. However, we will no longer allow Satisfactory players to play other video games such as Minecraft, Goat Simulator, God of War, Runescape, Final Fantasy.” However, the post added a few caveats, stating, “Stray is fine though. Cute cat. Even the mouse game is okay.”

Ironically, although Satisfactory called out a number of games, they didn’t name some of its biggest competitors, including Factorio or Refactory. Perhaps Satisfactory knows better than Twitter that stopping users from using your competitors is a self-defeat. In fact, that happens to be exactly what video game marketing consultant Chris Zukowski mentioned in a Twitter thread today.
He described the history of two games, Peglin and Roundguard, two eerily similar breakout-style games. However, by marketing their games together in a bundle, the two games sales increased. The Satisfactory developers probably know that their biggest users are probably also big Factorio and Refactory fans. And likewise, the biggest users of Twitter are the users of social media in general. The social media giant should perhaps take a leaf out of the world of game developers who realize that these efforts are reducing their user base rather than growing it!
