Welcome to Empyrion my friends! This is an early access survival and building game in which you can play in two modes. The first, Survival, has you digging for ore and other materials in order to survive on a harsh planet that you’ve crashed upon, managing oxygen, food and so on. Creative mode eschews all that and allows you to just build and explore at your own pace. In this video, I spend much of my time in creative mode to try out the engine, which is just fantastic. I’m not sure where the gameplay is yet, as even my attempts at survival mode before this video showed no larger goals or objectives beyond simple survival, but I’m sure those will be added as the game works its way through early access. Even so, just flying around in the engine was a lot of fun, and showed tremendous potential for building space stations, fighters, full capital ships and more. I hope you enjoy my look at the game, and I thank you for watching.
