About This Game SpaceEngine
is a 1:1 scale science-based Universe simulator, featuring billions upon billions of galaxies, nebulae, stars, and planets, all shown at their full real-world scale. Explore Earth and our neighboring worlds in the Solar System, orbit a black hole in a galaxy billions of light-years away, or visit anything in between seamlessly, with no transitions.
All of time and space are yours to explore – cruise between the stars at a million times the speed of light, and accelerate time to watch the orbital motions of a thousand worlds play out before your eyes. Every planet you encounter in your journey will feature procedural 3D terrain with detailed textures. Everything you see in the sky – stars and galaxies, planets and moons, asteroids and comets, black holes and neutron stars, star clusters and nebulae – are yours to explore at the press of a button.
Spacecraft with Newtonian physics and pilot-assist autopilot features (in early development but fully usable) are yours to fly anywhere in the universe in the Flight Simulator mode. SpaceEngine is also very friendly for creators of mods and add-ons – create your own planets, star systems, even galaxies, import your own spacecraft models, create custom GUI skins, and more, all easily sharable with others.
With SpaceEngine, the possibilities are limitless.SpaceEngine Planetarium capabilities:
All types of celestial objects are represented: galaxies, nebulae, stars and star clusters, planets and moons, comets and asteroids. Known celestial objects are represented using data from catalogs: galaxies (NGC/IC), stars (HIPPARCOS), star clusters, nebulae, and planets (Solar System and known extrasolar planets). Regions of space not yet cataloged feature procedurally generated objects: galaxies, stars, star clusters, nebulae, and planetary systems.
You are free to move around the universe – travel seamlessly between any object and any distance, from surface to orbit to interstellar and intergalactic space. Moving through space is as easy as "click and go", as well as game-style free flight using the WASD keys or a gamepad. Also, time travel is possible: you can accelerate, decelerate, or reverse the flow of time, and jump to a specified date. Detailed interactive tutorials will familiarize you with the controls.
Volumetric 3D models of galaxies and nebulae with interstellar dust clouds, and 3D landscapes on planets and stars. For many Solar System bodies, actual data from space pr

SpaceEngine user review
SpaceEngine: The most impressive thing I've seen running on a PC.
Awesome. Huge. Beautiful. Realistic. Nothing Bad About it.
"My God... It's full of stars"
Words cannot describe how it made me feel when I swooped to the egde of the observed universe and beyond to look at the universe as we know it from the outside. I would not recommend operating heavy machinery or having any responsibilities for the rest of the day first time you try this. Seriously.
A must for everyone!
Been looking for a decent space sandbox/exploration game for a while now, and I find space engine on steam. It has overwhelmingly positive reviews, and as an avid space nerd myself, I figured why not give it a try?
Space Engine is a spectacular product. Both the video and screenshots elements look amazing. I also own the Universe Sandbox 2 and I believe Space Engine looks way better! The UI is straight forward I highly suggest taking a look at the tutorials. The only downside is I think the nebula and planet editor could be better, I found it difficult to navigate. I highly recommended a download.
This game is simply beast.
A mind blowing game/planetarium. It's well worth the price if your into astronomy.
I do not recommend for VR users. Controls didn't work, I couldn't even navigate the in-game menus, and there are no VR tutorials. It's a neat idea, but I would hold off if you want a good VR experience.
for $25 this is a steal
Controls are buggy as hell at least in VR but everything else is pure diamond.
Vlad deserves a reward for making this a reality. It is amazing what one person can do when given enough time. I tried the free version first and loved it so much that I wanted to pay for the current version and see how far it has come since then. I was not disappointed. I got a lot of bang for my buck and look forward to more features being added (not that it doesn't already have a lot as it stands). I have found few bugs and the graphics are still stunning on the low settings I have to run it with. I love the soundtrack, too. Some of the songs get stuck in my head frequently, even on days I don't get on this "game". This masterpiece is one of the most solid "games" I have ever played around in. There is even a lot of scientific data about every space object you can visit, including the procedurally generated ones. Somehow the redshift is also taken into account when rendering particularly distant galaxies. If you have $25 to spare, buy Space Engine right away unless a sale is near. 42/10
amazing piece of software
Gotta say, disappointed with this one. No tutorial or in-game instructions and very awkward controls. Visual are not impressive on WMR.
I have lost countless hours in this game before it even came to Steam. It's easy to get lost among the stars and planet hop from star system to star system, galaxy to galaxy, enjoying the view and try to find that best shot of the galactic disk or black hole accretion disk from a planet's surface. This is an incredible simulator that I have enjoyed iteration after iteration. So glad it's available on Steam to be enjoyed by a larger audience.
I still think the price is a bit high.
