Wastes of Space: A Space Engineers Diary – Part Six: Secrets of the Ants

Last time on Wastes of Space: In need of a mobile base, the gang started building a colossal metal spider called the Loveless, in homage to Commander Bee's favourite film. Real spiders showed up, causing some consternation, and a lovely bedroom was build inside the giant spider's bum. SECURITY OFFICER’S LOG: SPACE TIME 10438494-3383398 Nate: Today starts like every other day on Horace’s world: I…

Wastes Of Space: A Space Engineers Diary – Part Five: Spidergeddon

Last time on Wastes of Space: While the rest of their crew languished indoors with moon mumps, Matt and Nate built cars and had a big silly race. They even tried to become friends, but it all got a bit toxically masculine and led to seething resentment. In any case, Matt won, and was awarded the rights to design the colonists’ new mobile base...

Wastes Of Space: A Space Engineers Diary – Part Four: The Space Race

Last time on Wastes Of Space: The RPS crew managed to firm up their toehold in the alien hills of Horace’s World, under the tutelage of their peculiar assistance droid, ODD. Survey Officer Ligz went on an ill-fated mineral-seeking expedition, Science Officer Cox decided he was a god, and the increasingly authoritarian Security Officer Crowley used all the crew’s metal to make a hooning great…

Wastes Of Space: a Space Engineers Diary – Part Two: The Vengabus Cometh

Last time on Wastes of Space: Alice, Matt and Nate were sent into the black with no training; three chumps signed on as “bronze level” colonists with Royal Planetary Services, and commissioned to find riches at the wild edge of space. After making landfall on an unnamed world, they found themselves separated, but in radio contact with the enigmatic robot ODD. Despite helpful instructions from…

Wastes Of Space: a Space Engineers Diary – Part One: Wolves

Earlier this week, four lucky inhabitants of the RPS Treehouse were selected to travel… to Space. Our mission was to colonise a distant world, using only our wits, our brawn, and the game Space Engineers. None of us had ever played it before, and all we knew about it was that it was reputed to be as complicated as it was unforgiving. But humanity didn’t…

The Lighthouse Customer: Space Engineers (Survival Mode)

Each Monday, Chris Livingston visits an early access game and reports back with stories about whatever he finds inside. This week, space-based gathering, crafting, and dying in Space Engineers' new survival mode. There's a large red and white spaceship, its front end crumpled after what must have been a spectacular nosedive. There's a tiny yellow space engineer inspecting the wreck, armed with only a handful…

Worlds Of Wonder: The Space Engineers Steam Workshop

I wanted to know what state Space Engineers was in, because it's been a few months since I last tried it out and it was already pretty impressive back then. How much could a game about building space ships and flying them change in a few months? Well, on my first playthrough I was slinging ships across the void, watching as they met and crumpled…

Hands On With Space Engineers

There's not a lot to do in Space Engineers, but this is the first Early Access game I've played in a while that works, and, well, isn't completely broken. In fact, it's given me a bit of hope: the content is light, and it has crashed a few times, but it doesn't feel like a game being held together by good intentions and hope. It's…
