Looks like Keen are pleased.
Four months after its release on Steam Early Access, Space Engineers has sold over 250,000 copies and steadily keeps in the top places at the Steam Top Sellers.
Space Engineers has been under intensive development through this period; new updates released on an almost weekly basis. Every update comes with a showcase video demonstrating what is new – all 19 updates can be previewed at Space Engineersâ€™ YouTube channel:
The development team is now working on finishing the Survival mode and the Multi-player.
Space Engineers has also been selected by the players as the 4th best indie game of 2013 in the â€œIndie Game of the Year Awardsâ€ organized by IndieDB and Desura.
â€œWe want to thank everyone who keeps contributing to the development of Space Engineers by publishing their creations on Steam Workshop and YouTube and also sending us valuable feedback and ideas. Space Engineers is about its community!â€ said Marek Rosa, CEO of Keen Software House.
Now have they fixed the invisible tiles yet.

If you are think about getting a copy be aware that their is a problem if you are using a AMD Radeon graphic card with invisible tiles, this is what mine looks like at the moment.
Alone with the usual ships from scifi TV and films their is some strange stuff built for the game as in this example.March 5, 2014 at 6:01 pm #100220ThargoidParticipant
Well right now my only computer is my work laptop and I couldn’t tell you what it has in as a graphics card. I do know its focused at CAD rather than games (funny that!)March 30, 2014 at 8:41 am #100221
Lot of updates for Space Engineers over the last couple of weeks including a milestone for the multiplayer game.They have also decided to put the price up as well. http://www.spaceengineersgame.com/space-engineers-ndash-survival-mode-and-multiplayer-milestones-reached.html
Keen Software House announced today that two key-milestones in the development of Space Engineers have been achieved: Survival mode and Multi-player.
The development of Space Engineers still continues, but the game is already in a very playable state and contains a vast amount of features that have been added through weekly updates in the last five months, since it was launched on Early Access.
Together with this milestone comes an increase in price, which will be $19.99 (â‚¬18.99, Â£14.99), starting today.
Space Engineers was available until now with the Creative mode, which focused on engineering and building without any constraints on resources and energy. This phase resulted in an explosion of creations that can be previewed at Space Engineersâ€™ Workshop: steamcommunity.com/workshop/browse/?appid=244850.
In the newly added Survival mode, players need to harvest ore, use the refinery to refine ore to ingots, produce construction components in the assembler and then manually build blocks on site using a welder tool. The management of resources aims for realism (inventory capacity, processing speeds) but can be increased in world settings (3x and 10x). Players need to watch uranium in reactors and energy in their space suit. If the player dies, he is respawned in his medical room. If he does not have a medical room, then he is respawned in a rescue ship at a distant location in the sector.
Survival mode comes with a set of new game scenarios: Crashed Red Ship, Two Platforms, Lone Survivor.
Bet they have not fixed those invisible tiles yet.
Edit not they haven’tApril 4, 2014 at 12:06 pm #100222
Oh meteorites bet the bloody monkeys have not fixed the invisible tiles yet.
n this update, we have added environmental hazards — meteor storms (safe, normal, cataclysm, Armageddon). You should find ways to protect your character and your creations. Also, you can now apply colors on more types of blocks (large and small ship thrusters, antenna, pillar, catwalk, etc.)April 12, 2014 at 8:44 am #100223
Another 50 meg update to Space Engineers, this time window blocks I don’t need this as I have plenty of Invisible blocks in the game. :angry:April 21, 2014 at 4:23 am #100224
Plenty of updates but fixes for my problem will have to have a look through their forum to see what they are saying about the invisible tiles.April 27, 2014 at 3:53 am #100225May 8, 2014 at 3:06 pm #100226
