I don’t even know where to begin talking about the craziness that is KSP. The folks over at Squad have hit this one out of the park, and the game is still in ALPHA. Version 0.18.4 is what I have here and it’s already hot.
The deal is, you get to build rockets, space stations, space planes, etc…, then you get to launch them, fly them, set them up in orbit, buils lunar bases, explore the galaxy and generally have a blast…off…
See what I did there?
We heard about this one quite some time ago but for some reason we never really went after it. Then, some of the guys from Sons of Odin started raving about it and I knew I had to check it out so I bought in to the alpha and away I went.
It took me a while to figure out a lot of the intricacies of building rockets and dealing with physics but the whole time was a lot of fun. I blew up a lot of astronauts, made a lot of craters and experimented with some INSANE rocket designs.
I’m not gonna lie…this game is the most fun I’ve had in a long time. I can’t wait for more versions with more parts, more refinement (the game is pretty refined already) and, in general, more spacey fun. In the mean time, I’m going to leave you with a video and some recommended specs. It doesn’t take much.
Have fun and I’ll see you on the dark side of the mün!
