I have been searching for a long time and for that game where I feel like a true captain of my ship. How about you? Interestingly enough, Empyrion seems to satisfy this need. I was thinking the other day how I could have saved money if I had purchased Empyrion instead of No Man’s Sky!
It’s like Minecraft, Kerbal Space Program, and No Man’s Sky had a hybrid child!
Empyrion is like Minecraft in space but with better graphics and honestly, it’s like Minecraft, Kerbal Space Program, and No Man’s Sky had a hybrid child. For an Alpha game, it runs smooth and already gives the player many challenges. If the devs keep this up then this game is going to be even more amazing!
The game starts you off on a home planet with nothing but a backpack full of essentials to get you going. Here is what you can do:
Here are a few things that you can already do:
- Mine for different ores with your drill
- Build bases
- Cook different kinds of food
- Fight Aliens
- Fight Wildlife
- Fight other players (Multiplayer Only)
- Build a Hovercraft, Fighter Ship, or a massive Capital Ship!
- Invade bases, ships, and even capture them for your empire!
- You can warp to other star systems and explore planets
- Leave and land on planets, space stations and more!
- and much more!

The game gets even more complicated, though! Like a real star ship captain, you have to manage your supply of fuel, food, weapon ammo, oxygen and more to keep your ship running smoothly. You really can get in a space battle and have your engines blown out on the left side of the ship only to control just the right! You can get stranded on planets if you’re not careful! I can go on but I hope you get the picture.
Other than Ark Survival Evolved, I have never enjoyed an Alpha type game like I have Empyrion in a long time! We need more captains, empires, ships and bases in this game!
