Space Engineers features a realistic, volumetric-based physics engine that makes object behave like their real-life counterparts. Everything has mass, inertia, and velocity.


As the name suggests, students must learn to think and act like an engineer, establishing production lines and designing buildings from scratch. There is no limit to what can be built with the right tools.


Outer space is not a friendly place. To survive those first few days amidst the stars, players need to be capable of strategic thinking and strict planning. Chaos is tough to control in a zero-G environment!
