Medieval Engineers for PC is a sandbox game that focuses on building. It was developed by Keen Software House, the creators of Space Engineers.
The action of Medieval Engineers is set in the Middle Ages, and the gameplay focuses on building various structures — including fortifications, castles, and even whole cities — as well as constructing various sorts of machines. We may also transform the land and conduct underground mining.
The developers took a realistic approach to the game. The players mainly use technologies which were actually available to the medieval engineers and constructors. The gameplay is driven by an advanced physics engine that calculates resistance and behavior of erected objects on the basis of their shape, weight, and materials used. At the same time, the interface is user-friendly and allows us to create new objects quickly and easily, although more complicated machines require proper planning.
The game is meant primarily for multiplayer play. There are both competitive and cooperative game modes to choose from. In the latter, we cooperate with other players to repel barbarian attacks led by the AI. Regardless of the chosen mode, combat takes place using siege engines and fortifications only, no direct confrontation of land units occurs.
Medieval Engineers for PC is powered by the VRAGE engine, known from the previous games of the developer. The technology was greatly improved, for example, by the introduction of a structural integrity system as well as full support of DirectX 11 libraries.
