Space Engineers Summary
Sandbox space station builder Space Engineers is going free on Steam this weekend. If you're someone who loves building cool things and doesn't mind spending hours and hours collecting bits and pieces to jam together, this might be a good time to check the Early Access title out.
I don't pretend to understand the intricacies of it, but I do respect any game in which you can create somethingterrifying, gravity-accelerating battering ram weapon.
Youtube channel Yogscast, which has over 7 million subscribers, has announced a partnership with Space Engineers developer Keen Software.
In return for a creating a series of videos and branded items for the game, Yogscast will receive "a small share" of its sales revenue. You might think that sounds a tad like being paid for advertising, but a press release on behalf of Yogscast claims that "Keen Software will have no editorial influence on any content broadcast on Yogscast channels".
Keen Software House's Space Engineers has sold over half a million copies of the space-based sandbox. The astral engineering and construction game achieved that milestone through Steam Early Access.
The indie attributes its success to Space Engineers use of "real world science, physics, and engineering" with just enough science fiction. It now supports multiplayer.
The space faring tinkerers known as Space Engineers have just reached "two key-milestones" in the game's development, announces developer Keen Software House. The free ride is at an end with Survival mode.
It's time to fire up those ore smelters and stamp some bars as resource management is introduced, and player deaths mean a trip to the medical room or nearest Rescue Ship.
Those crazy Space Engineers are now at their 18th update which sees all-new features like custom colours for blocks, configurable ranges on gravity generators, multiplayer syncs of ship systems and more.
There are also fixes and even a few "minor performance optimizations" thrown in. New game worlds now start with a construction deck, and small ship cockpits get two entrances.
