Marek Rosa and Keen Software House’s Space Engineers is an interesting game, a space sandbox game being designed with reality in mind, backed with the idea of building spaceships and space stations 60 years into the future based off the idea of feasible technology that NASA may have by that time. Thanks to Steam Early Access, gamers interested in can get their hands on the alpha build of the game on October 23rd, 2013, for $14.99, and have the chance to contribute to the game’s development and final build.
The alpha build of is an ongoing project and will focus on the core mechanics: the creative mode, building, physics simulation and destruction. Additional features will be released in later updates. A tutorial will be released prior to the Steam Early Access launch day so that players can get an idea of what to expect.
Below is “Crash Test” alpha footage, which shows ships crashing into asteroids, stations, and, of course, into each other.
