Quantum Engineering is a factory construction game.

As an employee of Quantum Engineering Incorporated,

you have been deployed to a distant moon to harvest dark matter.

Starting with a small collection of machinery,

you will need to establish a base, expand your production facilities

and defend your equipment in a harsh environment.


Everything in Quantum Engineering can be completely automated.

This includes resource harvesting, machine construction and base defense.


Conduits, retrievers and rail carts are used to move objects from one machine to another.


Solar panels, nuclear reactors and power conduits are used to power machines.


Machines in Quantum Engineering generate heat.

The more power a machine is consuming, the more heat it will produce.

Heat exchangers are used to reduce this heat so the so the machine's output can be increased.


These videos can also be viewed from the help menu in the game.
