Kerbal Space Program is a game where players can create and manage their own space program. In the NerdiPop Games Spotlight: Kerbal Space Program Review (KSP) we will start with a brief explanation of the game.
In short, you build your own spacecraft, fly the spacecraft, and try to help the Kerbals to fulfill their ultimate mission of conquering space. I have personally clocked in over 200 hours in game-time and I am still loving it.
In amateur terms, KSP to a game where you try to launch green aliens, known as Kerbals, into space. Sounds simple enough right? The real fun comes from building your spacecraft and trying to get it into orbit. With a simple drag-and-drop interface, the game allows you to build your own rocket and blast your ship into orbit (sometimes with disastrous consequences!).
Created by Squad (https://kerbalspaceprogram.com/) the game drew the attention of NASA, who in collaboration with Squad, made an Asteroid Redirect Mission for the game.
With a working solar system in the game, the player can send his crew to one of the orbiting moons around Kerbin (the planet the Kerbals are from) or send it to one of the neighbouring planets in the solar system.
With recent additions that are added to the game with each release and a fully working mod community, you better give Kerbal Space Program a look! You might just enjoy it!
With the 0.25 update just released, there isn’t a better time to get into a rocket and fly into space.
