Space Engineers alpha trailer rams spaceships together

A new trailer comprised of alpha footage from Space Engineers examines the game's physics when two (or more) objects collide in space.

Spaceships crash into other spaceships, asteroids and space stations and there's plenty of structural damage to go around. Presumably, you as a space engineer will have to do something about it.

According to the video description, Space Engineers is "a sandbox game about engineering, construction and maintenance of space works. Players build space ships and space stations of various sizes and utilization (civil and military), pilot ships and perform asteroid mining.

"Space Engineers utilizes a realistic volumetric-based physics engine: all objects can be assembled, disassembled, damaged and destroyed."

Space Engineers is planned to hit Steam Early Access on Oct. 23.
