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.
Medieval Engineers is an Early Access game, which means that it is under development but already in a playable state and contains a vast amount of features. The game is improved on a regular basis through updates that add and polish features and content, optimizations and bug fixes.
Creative - unlimited resources, instant building, invulnerability, levitation
Survival - this mode is work-in-progress - death/respawn, survival building, resource management, inventory, character stats (health, stamina, food), material harvesting and processing
Creative and survival mode with your friends
Cooperative: build together with your friends, protect your castles/cities from barbarian raids
Competitive: battle against other players
Privacy customization: offline, private, friends only, public
Max 16 players (this may increase in the future)r castle from opponents’ raid or lead the attack to capture the castl
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
Barbarians - first prototype of enemy AI
Barbarian waves (survival mode) - barbarians will attack players in waves during the night
Peasants - first prototype of friendly AI. Able to pick up stones and move them to his spawn position.
Weapons - Crossbow, sword
Voxel hand – shape the terrain and its material (right now only creative mode voxel hand is implemented)
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
