Since the launch of Steams early access program in 2013 developers have made early access a way of business. Early access provides smaller development teams the funds they need to move a game from concept to reality, often times in stages. Some early access games never catch on and eventually die off, while others are thrust into the national spotlight.

Join the last of the human race on the planet Rhyldan where the nearly extinct humans have managed to splinter into two warring factions. The Repopulation boasts that it is the game for everyone PVE or PVP, Shooter or RPG there is a character path for you.
The Repopulation has a unique game mechanic that allows players to spilt into their own factions and build nations, cities, and homes. Nations can contain multiple cities ruled by player designated mayors.

Space Engineers is another sandbox game about just as the title would have you believe, engineering. Think NASA technology 60 years from now. Space Engineers uses a realistic physics engine and all objects can be assembled, disassembled, damaged and destroyed.

The Forest is a survival horror game in which you must avoid being eaten by mutated humanoid cannibals while surviving the elements.
What makes The Forest unique is your ability to set traps, spear fish, and build shelter. You can build yourself a camp and a cozy little fire to keep yourself warm, or you can go all out cut down huge trees and build a fortress complete with walls and snare traps.

So, your hiding on the edge of the woods waiting for the right time to make a run for the airbase, you dash out of the woods only to be sniped, killed, and plundered by someone else, who is waiting for the right time to make a run for the airbase.
