Imagine a magical factory, appearing right in your living room. A carefully planned masterpiece, where diligent workers throw together anything customers want. Rubber ducks and dressers, drones and electric guitars, scooters and other wonderful goods can be created from many different materials and sold for hard cash – cash you invest right back into your factory to get more machines, more workers and grow your business. In Little Big Workshop you become a factory tycoon! You are the Big Boss and it’s time to take charge of your very own tabletop factory. Organize the factory floor, manage your workers, purchase machinery, and design efficient production lines - all within the time-limit and to your client's satisfaction! Take it easy, it’s a sandbox-experience where you think, ponder and poke at things until you get it to work the way you’d like. Supply products to clients and an ever-changing market, as you produce over 50 unique product types, built from multiple parts and pieces - all of which can be created with different materials and production methods. No two factories should ever look the same. Start out with just a small workshop and expand to a desk-filling factory. Unlock ever fancier machines, add even more production methods, and most of all, more room. Soon enough you’ll be running multiple production lines, producing hundreds of advanced products each day, and watching with joy as your cute workers do the actual work.

Quite addictive and fun. A definite must buy if you like organizing things and logistics.
Only complaints are:
1) Player can't "reorganize" an area for better storage. My workers are dumb and just drop stuff in the export zone randomly so there is a ton of wasted space. Be nice if we could "reorganize" to reclaim some of that lost space.
2) Be nice if there was a dedicated "mechanic" we could assign to walk around and fix machinery at certain percentages of disrepair. Could be later in the game to give players a taste of tediously watching EVERY machine, but once we get a lot of machines it does get annoying quickly.
All things considered I am having a blast playing this game. I do recommend highly.

Little Big Workshop is a lot of fun. I really enjoyed it. It was fustrating at first - like I couldn't get off the starting block. I kept going bankrupt and couldn't figure out why. So I just kept trying different approaches. Eventually I found one that worked well for me. The amount of freedom you have to do things how you want is awesome. It took me I think 6 tries to finally get the win condition. Nearly 60 hours. You can DEFINITELY do this game WAY faster than I did. That's why I selected both average and long. You can easily get more than 20 hours of gameplay if you WANT, but probably to just finish the win condition if you really are trying to finish fast, you could do it in 10 hours probably. There are bugs, thankfully nothing that is game breaking.

Good game!

Review from Steam

I really really enjoy Little Big Workshop. It is a management game where you can actually defeat yourself. Something not often seen these days. Most games after a little gameplay you have more cash then you know what to do with. Expand too quickly, hire too many employees, sign the wrong contracts and it could be game over. It is a lot about logistics and about management, its what you want in a management game. Can be micromanagey, but when you do and it all works out, you are firing on all cylinders, Scratched an itch no other game has in a long long time, maybe since railroad tycoon 3. Highly recommend.

Review from Steam

I love this game! There's something uniquely fun and engaging about manufacturing products and setting up rooms efficiently, and your ability to control the pace at which you grow and hit benchmarks means that challenge never grows to a point that it isn't rewarding to keep playing.

Review from Steam

Oh Baby! What a thrill this game has been. I've enjoyed playing this thing through multiple times. Thing is, I'm a process engineer in a manufacturing plant so playing this game was cathartic and I understood basic principles that made it easier. There are plenty of techniques you'll want to employ that aren't at all explained in the game. Like KANBAN so your workers are working instead of walking.
If you have any interest in managing a plant, this is pretty fun. But I don't think you're average person will enjoy this game. It is a little too punishing and not entirely insightful. You'll struggle if you don't intuit basic strategies.
My last complaint with the game is how GD bright the floors are in the DLC. I tried playing this game at night and nearly burnt out my retinas. Needs a night mode or some option for sure. You can turn off the grass but you can't change the floor colours.
Anyway, game is recommended! I'll keep playing it! But I'd probably skip this one if you aren't into manufacturing in RL.

Not a challenger, but a diversion maybe.
If you have a cool idea for a factory it probably won't work without modding the game.
