Hack The Galaxy! Space Engineers’ Programmable Blocks

Even as a casual observer of the genre, I get excited when sandbox block 'em ups add programmable bits. Some of Minecraft's redstone devices are staggering in their scale and mechanical complexity, and I suspect we'll see some awfully clever things in Space Engineers. An update last week added programmable blocks which are properly programmable, running C# code, which I imagine will power all sorts…

Space Engineers Fishes For Community Ships

Space Engineers. I haven't been back since I accidentally broke Craig's space shark and sent a gigantic Han Solo hurtling into the distant reaches of space but there are now exploration-based plans afoot. The plans talk a lot about ships and stations in the game. Marek Rosa of developers Keen Software House said in a blog post earlier in December, "The exploration feature will add…

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…

I Will Survive: Space Engineers Adds Survival Mode

I have seen things in Space Engineers, readers. Horrible, crotch-related things. I got so wrapped up in seeing those things that I didn't actually notice if there was any sort of game in there. Now I'm fine with pure building and messing about being considered gaming, but if you absolutely insist on there being some drama then the newly released Survival mode might be for…

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…

Start Your Engines: Space Engineers On Early Access

Do you want to be an engineer? I can understand if you don't really feel like it's your cup of tea - especially if you'd rather be a professional tea brewer. But what about a space engineer? Well of course you're saying yes now. Space makes everything better, except breathing. Happily, Space Engineers would rather suck the life from your lungs via the good old-fashioned method: time.…

Space Engineers ‘Crash Test’ Footage Looks Smashing

Oh Space Engineers, let me count the ways. For one, you're a hyper-ambitious extraterrestrial builder rooted in near-future NASA technology, but also, you're not going to Kickstarter. Not that I have anything against crowdfunding drives per se, but it's nice when a game doesn't thrust its clanking cup in our direction from time-to-time. But yes, the game looks quite excellent, with a physics engine that takes…

Space Engineers Are The Best Engineers

I reckon I'd be happy to do most things in space. Things that I'd normally consider to be chores or hard labour would become pleasurable, at least for a while, which is probably why Space Engineers makes welding, joining and glazing seem like the best jobs in the world. It looks superb, as you'll see in the video below, but don't just rely on images.…
