Go beyond your wildest dreams as you play Space Engineers.

Go beyond your wildest dreams as you play Space Engineers.

Let’s face it, we all have way too much time on our hands. Even with all the work we get from our classes, we still don’t have much to do all day, due to us not being able to go places, or spend time with friends. But that doesn’t mean you can’t explore the universe from the comfort of your own home, all with the help of a certain game called Space Engineers. Unfortunately I don’t have an Xbox or a proper computer to play the game, nor do I know anyone who has the game, but I do have YouTube and reviews to hopefully form a good opinion on the game.

So from what I’ve seen, the game immediately thrusts you into it with only a simple objective and few tutorials, tailoring the experience solely for yourself.  The next thing for you to do is, well basically anything you want! Of course, you’d have to get to space, and that both requires a lot of creativity and even more trial and error, but that’s what makes the game so great; it makes you think about every move you make with your design choices as well. You don’t have to just play the game without any help.

I highly recommend you check out some YouTube videos to help you get started. You should also check out some YouTube videos before you buy the game to see if the game is actually your thing before you mindlessly spend $20 on something you might not even like. The game does have a very big problem in regards to its abundance of DLC (Downloadable Content), with it being advertised in the game to an obnoxious extent. Other than that, If you
have an Xbox or a proper PC, then this game is a must buy! Even the DLC is not that much of a problem if you are willing to spend $38 for the ultimate edition. Again, only spend that much If you really really want this game, but hey, quarantine is going to be a long time so maybe you could spend that time doing something new that you weren’t able to do before!
