In Satisfactory, you play as an engineer, working for FICSIT Inc. All playable engineers are female. There is no hunger system in the game, so engineers don't need to eat to survive. Multiple engineers can play together in multiplayer.
Only first-person view is in current version of the game, without virtual reality support. In the future there may be some kind of top-down view for building. When driving a Tractor or Truck, you are transitioned to a third-person point of view.
The engineer's e-mail address (and assumably the employee number) can be seen in the codex: "[email protected]".

There is currently no character customization, however there will likely be some form of basic customization in the future, such as jumpsuit color selection.
