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.
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 in alpha stage of development - this means that the game is still under development and will be improved on a regular basis through updates that add and polish features and content, optimizations and bug fixes.

Start by watching this video tutorial: Space Engineers Tutorial
We encourage you to experiment: try to learn how to build a ship, what blocks are required to make it operational, how gravity and electricity works, how to fly the jetpack and how the physics interactions work.
Fun if...viriel | Feb. 13, 2014 | See all viriel's reviews »
Space Engineers is fun and innovative but that comes with a big IF...You will only get value from this program if you enjoy building and working with objects in space. Currently there are no quests or objectives, nothing like the Ender dragon. There is a multi-player and the creators are making improvements all the time and even without making any big projects I've logged over 14 hours so it is definitely worth the price. If you enjoy building, space ships and limited weapon use this game will be right up your alley. However if this and the low price tag aren't enough to draw you in, wait until the full game is released and hopefully all of the features will be worked in. If you can get a gmg code and have some extra coin then there's no reason not to buy Space Engineer's.

Space Engineers is a game about building things in space. It is a sandbox game not unlike Minecraft, and even in Alpha, just as Minecraft was at first, there is still fun to be had for many hours. This game has some features that make it have potential to be better than Minecraft. First of all, you can build spaceships and space stations. And you can crash them. What you crash them into deforms with an awesome deformation engine that put holes in meteors and tears space ships apart. One thing that is awesome to do in this game is crashing into one of your friend's creations and seeing as you make a hole in their work. Multiplayer still needs some work overall though. In public servers there is a lot of lag, unless you have REALLY good internet. When playing with friends, I did not experience much lag, and the game was much more playable. Overall, if you love space sims, sandbox games, and games with awesome destruction and great graphics, then this is for you. Just make sure to buy it now, before the price rises (which it certainly will).

Space Engineers is at the moment an early-access game that will (hopefully soon) expand to be a full space themed sandbox where the players can build their spacecrafts or bases and can use them to mine, fight, travel and so on. First of all I have to say that the idea is great - and so far the execution seems to be of high standard as well. The graphics is really nice and the physics seems to work quite realistic - which is quite important in a physics based sandbox. So far only the Freebuild mode is available but the developers promise to have a Story mode as well that will also serve as a tutorial. The game is recommended for anyone who would like to experiment with a physics based building game that shows great promise.
Hours of fun encounteredTL_ARMY | Nov. 7, 2013 | See all TL_ARMY's reviews »
This game is just so brilliant! Even trailer made me excited of this game. Those physics and damage systems are just great. I love how those ships blow apart in space and their debris just fly away. And making your very own space station, and you're the commander of it. There are some things to add like generator exploding. Sharing those huge shuttles on Steam Workshop sounds great and if multiplayer support comes, let me know first! I have been wondering how they got multiple astronauts to scenes. Sure there are some bugs but they don't really bother player's thinking. I saw my friend playing this and even he says that this game is great! God I'd like to have this game and just build gigantic ships, so don't waste time reading these reviews, just press that "Buy now" button and you will have hours of fun playing this masterpiece of space games. I see that this game has great future here and on Steam. I wish you luck; On space!
light years better then what i expectedjdavies655 | Nov. 4, 2013 | See all jdavies655's reviews »
When buying this game i expected it to be buggy and laggy due to it being in early access. I was wrong. the game runs smoothly there are daily updates and while it has limited features at the moment its plenty to keep you entertained until the new content is unlocked, which is soon. i recommend this game to anyone who likes these building type games.
