Space Engine. It’s not really a game. But it’s free, and it’s pretty damn amazing. Let me quote from the website -
‘SpaceEngine- is a free space simulation software that lets you explore the universe in three dimensions, starting from planet Earth to the most distant galaxies. Areas of the known universe are represented using actual astronomical data, while regions uncharted by human astronomy are generated procedurally. Millions of galaxies, trillions of stars, countless planets!’
The Universe. It’s
big. Like, really big. And with Space Engine that sense of
scale hits home hard. Space is vast and beautiful, and there are sights to see which will really blow your mind - watching a galaxy rise in the sky from the surface of a dead world on the dark edges of the void. Or advancing time and watching three stars engage in a deadly orbital dance that will last for millions of years.
If you have any interest at all in space, and if your system can run it, you should
definitely check it out.
