A downloadable game for Windows and Linux

Artifact is a mining, crating and automation game with a theme loosely based on the simulation hypothesis

The primary focus of Artifact is automation. If you build a large enough factory, dangerous objects called rifts will begin to spawn in the world.

Machines called "reality anchors" can destroy these rifts and protect your factory from the hazards they create.

Artifact was created using the Minetest game engine:https://www.minetest.net/
