Space Engineers is a PC game being released on Steam Greenlight that encourages players to invest time and resources into building ships, buildings, and other projects in a zero-gravity environment, and then encourages them to crash them together spectacularly. The focus of the game is on construction and simulation, with destructible environments and building materials, as well as controllable thrusters and other functional parts. The unique building space also allows for player control over elements such as gravity, electricity, and computing power that runs between and around parts.
- Build spaceships and stations in zero gravity
- Functioning parts and electricity
- Destructible components
