Masterspace is a game about mining, creating and exploring, featuring fully destructible environments and spaceships that allow you to travel between different planets. Use explosives to mine metal ores or watch your newly constructed home get smashed to pieces by a meteorite impact. As you venture into space to discover new planets, the hull integrity of your custom built spaceship will be tested.

Masterspace update 1.2 has been released. New in this version is support for dynamic entities, which may have scripted behaviours. This allows for AI programming of enemies, etc, and a movable mine cart and a mining droid is included to demonstrate this. It is now also possible to destroy objects using weapons.

Additionally, dynamic lighting and PSSM shadows has been implemented. This allows for dynamic day and night cycles on each planet, depending on the orientation and position in the universe. This also means that it is possible to construct lamp posts to provide lighting in your base at night or use light flares to explore dark places.
