Space Engineers free on Steam this weekend

Space makes everything better. Engineering degree? A solid career choice. Space engineering degree? The stuff of legends.


Space Engineers is a sandbox game in which you explore an asteroid belt, attempting to build a space station or ship.

Dedicated and sensible players can construct amazing things by finding and scavenging parts in survival mode, or unleashing their imaginations in creativity mode.

The rest of us can blow things up. In space! The joys of this really can’t be over-emphasised.

This weekend, you don’t even have to spend money in order to experience the pleasures of letting machines float majestically toward each other in zero gravity before ponderously exploding. Visit Steam to take advantage of the free weekend, and if you like what you see, get in before the 40% discount runs out.
