About Medieval Engineers
Medieval Engineers is a sandbox game about engineering, construction and the maintenance of architectural works and mechanical equipment using medieval technology. Players build cities, castles and fortifications; construct mechanical devices and engines; perform landscaping and underground mining. Medieval Engineers utilizes a realistic volumetric-based physics engine with a focus on structural integrity: all objects can be assembled, disassembled, damaged and destroyed; the object’s mass and structure influences its integrity. The game comes with creative mode and an early prototype of survival mode.
