Space Engineers is a sandbox game about engineering, construction and maintenance of space works. Players build space ships and space stations of various sizes and utilization (civil and military), pilot ships and perform asteroid mining.
Space Engineers utilizes a realistic volumetric-based physics engine: all objects can be assembled, disassembled, damaged and destroyed. The game comes with two game modes: creative and survival.
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 aspects, but can be played as a tactical shooter as well. We expect players to avoid engaging in direct man-to-man combat and instead use their creativity and engineering skills to build war machines and fortifications. Space Engineers shouldn’t be about troops; it should be about the machinery you build.
Space Engineers is an Early Access game, which means that it is still under development but already in a very playable state and contains a vast amount of features. The game is improved on a regular basis through updates that add and polish features and content, optimizations and bug fixes.

For being an early access, I have found a nice game. Nowadays I am studying engineering, so, I know how it works in real life and I can say that this game is really awesome! You can create your own spaceship, designs, weapons, you can customize everything you want and from my point of view it is really cool. At least, the most important thing for me is the multiplayer, play alone is fun but play with friend is really better, you can build a lot of thing that you can not imagine to build alone. So, I truly recommend it.
A Very, Very Interesting, Cool GameGeoffAussieSpy | Sept. 3, 2015 | See all GeoffAussieSpy's reviews »
This game, this space survival game, is awesome! You can do a lot in this that you really can't do in other games! It has amazing mechanics that keep you trying new things and exploring to find more. Yeah, sure they could've added some cool other things, but the way it is is just fine. Gameplay is quite smooth and has some pretty simple controls that you can get down in your head fast. The game does very, very good at immersing you into a world you've never explored! The world is beautiful, great graphics. I absolutely love the construction and destruction in this. It supports steam workshop, co-op, single and multi player. It's tons of fun and really, really cool to play, I love it!

Create actual flyable space ships, explore the galaxy, Dogfight your friend, there are literally tons of possibility's for this awesome game! The dev team regularly updates the game adding more and more content and even though its early access it is entirely playable and has more content then your average sandbox "finished" game. Highly recommend for those who wish minecraft was more realistic and in space.

The creative mode is great, and I haven't tried the survival mode, but it has potential to be awesome. This game is heavily supported by the devs, and there's frequently new big updates coming out. The ship building is great with many different blocks, and the flying them feels good too. There's also a big modding scene for this game, where you blocks, spaceships and more can be downloaded. Playing with a friend and then battling each other with the spaceships is great fun too.

Imagine playing Minecraft and then imagine doing it in space. That is how this game feels. I had a lot of fun just screwing around in it. Obviously it is not polished and could use some work, but it's not something i will hold against it. It's too fun to put it down that easily. Pick it up and enjoy.
