Medieval Engineers, Space engineers in not space.

At first I was a little sceptical, seeing that Space Engineers was not finished yet, but the trailer looks pretty cool.

Interesting. Let's hope this doesn't lead to Keen dropping support and discontinuing development on Space Engineers in order to pursue more preorder cash with this game.

Unlikely I suppose, as Space Engineers is popular enough that it will doubtlessly continue to sell for quite some time but... it's worth remembering that they left the Miner Wars community out to dry with unfulfilled promises and an unfinished game when they moved on to SE.

Caution aside... I ******* love building castles. I hope some good comes of this (but not at the expense of SE).

I'm interested, but without troops to command it's kind of a vanity game.

Maybe look up the Ancient Warfare mod for MC. It had siege weapons, troops, and (being in MC) castles. And was for multiplayer too, though I lost track of the development while he was trying to work out civil workers and structures.
But you were dead a thousand times. Hopeless encounters successfully won. A man long dead, grafted to machines your builders did not understand. You follow the path, fitting into an infinite pattern. Yours to manipulate, to create and rebuild.

I know who you are.

You are destiny.

I'd like to see Keen Software to license the voxel tech out to TaleWorlds Entertainment for Mount & Blade's castles.  Would be a match made in heaven! ^.^
