Are there any decent creative/sandbox games for Linux?


I'm aware of Minecraft, Starbound, Terraria, Crea, and Factorio.

I was watching some gameplay of Space Engineers and it made me wish there was something like that on Linux. I don't think there is, but I don't know. Does anyone know of similar games, preferably with a technical aspect like in Space Engineers or redstone in Minecraft?

You might want to check out Gmod, if you haven't already. There exists a ton of mods that can alter the gameplay to the way you want it (List of mods I like to play with). Gmod do require Steam and it's recommended to have some more source games installed for the purpose of getting more content. Otherwise you might be able to find some great Linux games with the "Sandbox" tag in this Steam search.

Right now I’m pretty into minetest (a minecraft clone), and colobot (a space survival/programming game).
