Medieval Engineers Gets Big ‘Re-Launch’ Update

While Space Engineers receives a fairly steady flow of smaller updates, developers Keen Software House have been saving up for a big'un with their other early access sandbox game, the low-tech follow-up Medieval Engineers [official site]. This week has brought an update big enough that Keen call it a "re-launch", boshing in everything from a huge new world to land claims and female player models.

You Wot? Space Engineers Devs Making Artificial Brain

Of all the fanciful claims made of video game technology, my favourite has always been neural nets and artificial brains. Imagine if video game men were alive! Your soldiers would learn from battle! They'd write letters to their virtual families - which you can read! Gasp as the life leaves their little digital eyes, and wonder what they believe comes next! Oh, it's always a…

Medieval Engineers Early Access Adds Multiplayer

This week, he makes, then mounts, the battlements in Medieval Engineers, a castle construction sandbox. And then he unmakes them, too. Once you’ve built…

Smash-o! Medieval Engineers Launches Into Early Access

A touch over a month after announcing Medieval Engineers [official site], Keen Software have now launched the low-tech counterpart to Space Engineers. Well, they've launched it into Early Access. I can't imagine a sandbox crafty build 'em up doing it any other way, though. Actually. How would Minecraftbuts turn out if they did launch without that lengthy phase of large-scale testing and feedback? Perhaps closer…

Space Engineers Devs Announce Medieval Engineers

While Space Engineers is still in Early Access, developers Keen Software House are looking for more engineering opportunities. Today they announced Medieval Engineers. Given that I used to cheekily describe Space Engineers as "a Minecraftbut in space," I don't know where this leaves me. Medieval engineers in their leather aprons will dig and landscape, of course, but it'll also have mechanical gadgets, and physics-based building…
