Kerbal Space Program: Rocket Science Made Simple
We get pulled into the orbit of this ambitious space simulator and come away impressed.

Bought this game after watching this and a few other videos. Zero regrets. Finally got my first satellite into a stable orbit after about two hours of testing rocket and booster configurations. Next step, the Mun!
is this game a "real simulation"... is it a realistic game in term of physics laws ty for replying
(sry for my bad english)
I love the overall premise of this game where you get to be creative, adventurous, and learn about real space flight at the same time. And it's great that this game is finally getting some much-needed recognition from Gamespot.

As i played this game, i felt like i was the north koreans, taking many different models and mess ups to figure this out...
"You're doing rocket science..."
Pretty sure this game is to rocket science as the Soviet space dogs were to American Astronauts. -_-
This game is the most fun I've had since Limbo and Journey. The physics inside the game make it very interesting, and entertaining for hours. Even if in this early stage I must say it's a buy!Edit (5 minutes)
This is one of those games that can turn out to be a blockbuster once it's actually finished. I was impressed about the complexity and physics, and experimenting with different rocket and lander configurations will magically make hours disappear.
I don't think I've ever spent so long trying to accomplish one task or ever felt so fulfilled when I did. For a period, I thought that going to the Mun would be impossible. Determined not to look it up, I tinkered ... and eventually got it. Now, I have to figure out how to get my characters back from these sorts of missions. :)
this game is so amazing. had it over a month now and cant stop playing it.
Something so satisfying about building your own ship from scratch and managing to land it on another planet all seamlessly with no loading
Looks cool!! Just like Universe Sandbox!!
You can't play without learning something in the process!!
Meh.... to expensive better to buy Garys Mod where it supports multiplayer and many more mods and you can create your own stuff asweell
ok, for some reason the video stops for me always at 2:50... going to download this, with an Aeronautics major I should give it a try.
I've been playing this beta a lot lately. Sciencey enough to be a real simulator for the most part, easy enough to just pick up and build and see what happens. Do all the math on paper and apply it to your build for optimal flight (calculus) or just "trial and error" it to the moon or the other planets. It doesn't matter, both are amazingly fulfilling. Worth trying the demo at least. And I really hope they get it finished eventually...soonish.
If you want to see how funny this game can be watch Robbaz play it on YouTube. He always makes me laugh with his Kerbal videos.
You want a REAL challenge?
Try making an orbital rendezvous and docking with a space station, I've been trying all week to no avail....
@gino_pachino There is a lot of realism to it. They are still working on some of the systems. A key one yet to be implemented is the reentry heat (and destruction of ship parts by heat) and a better aerodynamics model (aerodynamics become less important once you get through the thick parts of the atmospheres.
@Succumbus Before we got some of the new tools in the Alpha, you used to have to do some serious rocket science to figure out how to do planetary transfers. There is some serious science built into this, and some tools that some people have made as mods that take a lot of the math and science out of it.
After all, games are supposed to be fun right?
Still there are a few guys who have designed entire flight plans by hand, and then done them all from the cockpit view. Timed burns in set directions. Its what I'd call insane mode.
Soviets still got space flight down before the US did. =0
@psycohideo There should be a way for us to tell the devs to include more difficult physics to make the game a bit harder, making bases on other planets, etc. This could match Minecraft if it continues to grow instead of just stamping it with a release date.
@Majkic666 Its currently free and they also mention it in the video you just watched. Meh.. your fucking retarded.
@Majkic666 Have you tried KSP?
Hehe, after I got my rocket into orbit I yelled "I can do science me!".
@Dasim64 Robbaz is fun, but Scott Manley is the best KSP'er I've come across. The dude is a genius. He knows more about the game than the developers, they come to him for help sometimes lol.
