    Space Engine is a space visualizer. TerraGenesis is a game. While there is planetary exploration in TerraGenesis, I just think Space Engine shouldn't be the top result. It definitely should remain listed.

    In the final stage of the game (the space stage) you are able to go to other planets and colonize and terraform them too.

    EVE is primarily about doing things with your ship; mining, combat, missions. Where as TerraGenesis is about building up planets and terraforming them. Not the same type of gameplay.
