VRAGE™ is an in-house game engine developed by Keen Software House.

VRAGE stands for “volumetric rage” and/or “voxel rage”.

VRAGE 1.0 was built and tailored specifically for Miner Wars 2081 and its core feature is the destructible voxel terrain and open-world environment. Full source code available: Github.com
VRAGE 2.0 is under development and its core feature is volumetricity of the environment. Volumetric objects are structures composed from block-like modules interlocked in a grid. Volumetric objects behave like real physical objects with mass, inertia and velocity. Individual modules have real volume and storage capacity and can be assembled, disassembled, deformed and destroyed.

Space Engineers is the first title fully utilizing VRAGE 2.0.

We added seven new blocks to the game, with the visual inventory blocks as the main highlight! This system allows you to instantly see what is in an inventory of these five new blocks by looking at the block in the world. There is a Weapon Rack for your weapons, a Dining Table for food items, and Shelves for small and medium sized items. There is also a Bookshelf block for storing research schematics.

Next, we bring you Timber and Log Stockpiles for storing your building materials. The Stockpile blocks use our area inventory system so there is no need to run back and forth to your stockpile inventory while building your castles! Unlike storing these items as physical objects, these blocks have no negative performance impact while adding to the immersive atmosphere of your worlds.


We have also added a Trapdoor Block. It is a simple wooden door that allows for vertical access through floors.


But that's not all! We're moving on to the next iteration of our new quest system with the introduction of the Quest Log (found under "K" key). The Quest Log is able to toggle the quest tracker on your HUD, shows you your active and finished quests, and it allows you to abandon active quests. We would very much appreciate some feedback about this feature, so do not hesitate to voice your opinions in the comment section! :)


Last, but not least, we have some new features for our modders. The stockpile component our new blocks are using is available for modding, along with new and improved entity components and Event System.

Also, watch last night's live stream event where we show off these new blocks and Marek "The Boss" Rosa answers questions about the new HUD in Space Engineers.
