Build the future in Space Engineers

Space Engineers is a science-fiction survival and building game. This voxel-based game resembles Minecraft in its basic structure: players must mine resources and fend off enemies to survive in a hostile world but the real fun is building exciting and elaborate structures including space ships and space stations. Most of the action takes place in orbit but there are also explorable planets populated both by space pirates and dangerous alien creatures. View full description

PROS

  • Robust crafting system
  • Easy inventory management
  • Varied planets

CONS

  • Mining can be repetitive

A sandbox in space

You can choose to play Space Engineers either in Survival mode or in Creative mode. Creative mode is pure sandbox: you have all the resources you need and what you build is constrained only by your imagination. In Survival mode you'll have to dig the resources you need to build out of planets and asteroids and you may find yourself in danger not only from enemies but also from running out of food water or air. Some resources are absolutely critical: run out of refined uranium for instance and you might find yourself without the power you need to refine uranium.

A canvas for would-be space explorers

If you like creative construction games but prefer spaceships to castles Space Engineers could be right for you. Like a lot of creation games it lacks characters and plot but that's not the important thing: the enjoyment comes from designing and building your own ships and space stations.

Sandbox game about engineering, construction, exploration and survival in space and on planets

Players build space ships, space stations, planetary outposts of various sizes and uses (civil and military), pilot ships and travel through space to explore planets and gather resources to survive. Featuring both creative and survival modes, there is no limit to what can be built, utilized and explored.

Space Engineers features a realistic, volumetric-based physics engine: everything in the game can be assembled, disassembled, damaged and destroyed. The game can be played either in single or multiplayer modes.

Volumetric objects are structures composed from block-like modules interlocked in a grid. Volumetric objects behave like real physical objects with mass, inertia and velocity. Individual modules have real volume and storage capacity.

Space Engineers is inspired by reality and by how things work. Think about modern-day NASA technology extrapolated 60 years into the future. Space Engineers strives to follow the laws of physics and doesn't use technologies that wouldn't be feasible in the near future.

Space Engineers concentrates on construction and exploration aspects, but can be played as a survival shooter as well. We expect players will avoid engaging in direct man-to-man combat and instead use their creativity and engineering skills to build war machines and fortifications to survive in space and on planets. Space Engineers shouldn’t be about troops; it should be about the machinery you build.
