Space Engineers, the next game from Keen Software (who you may remember from Miner Wars 2081) has been released unto Steam’s early access program for $14.99. If y’all buy it, let us know what you think it the comments. Enjoy!
Edit: Okay, I have to admit, I approached this release feeling a tad concerned, since the persistent sandbox MMO promised for Miner Wars that many people — including myself — paid for in advance hasn’t seen the light of day. Well, according to this FAQ, development of Space Engineers is intertwined with the development of the MMO, which apparently is still planned for release at some point in the far future. I’m not sure if it makes me feel any less concerned, but at least the issue has been addressed a bit, so I wanted to share that in the interest of full honesty and disclosure on my part.
