Clans

is a sandbox building game about engineering, construction and the maintenance of architectural work and mechanical equipment using medieval technology.

Medieval Engineers is the second “engineering” game after Space Engineers developed by Keen Software House. The first Engineers sold over 1 million copies in its first year and is still a bestseller.

The game is inspired by real medieval technology and the way people built architectural works and mechanical equipment using medieval technology. Medieval Engineers strives to follow the laws of physics and history and doesn't use any technologies that were not available in the 5th to 15th centuries. Medieval Engineers concentrates on construction aspects, but can be played as an action game too.  

Players build cities, castles and fortifications; construct mechanical devices and engines; and perform landscaping and underground mining.

Medieval Engineers utilizes a realistic volumetric-based physics engine with a focus on structural integrity: all game objects can be assembled, disassembled, damaged or destroyed, and the object’s mass and structure influences its integrity. The game comes with creative mode and an early prototype of survival mode.

Castle siege mode - play as an attacker or defender and either defend your castle from opponents’ raid or lead the attack to take charge and capture the castle

Character crafting - craft your tools using the basic resources such as scrap wood or small stones

Dedicated servers - players can connect to a third party host, rather than using a player-host, in a peer-to-peer set-up. The result is a faster connection and a more fluid multiplayer performance with less lag

Building blocks - stone walls (various shapes - from blocky to rounded), wooden walls and flooring, roofs (ceramic, thatched, hay), power source blocks (manual human labor), stored energy blocks (torsion spring), leverages, weights, swings, ropes, wooden beams of various length and shape

Realistic physics – structural integrity, destructible objects (everything: from blocks to terrain), real proportions, volume, mass, storage capacity, integrity
