We get pulled into the orbit of this ambitious space simulator and come away impressed.
Did you enjoy this video?
rocket science made far too simple...
Since i was a kid I always wanted something like this.
I remember first watching this from towelliees sub Sunday and it was hilarious.
Looks like a much, much simpler and user-friendlier version of Orbiter, perfect!
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.

Love this game.
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.
Well, I'm off to steam now...
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. :)
Thanks to Robbaz on youtube, I will only recognize this game as "Ze Viking Space Program".
Watched this and a couple of gameplay videos -> bought the game INSTANTLY!
Really Enjoy this game. Ive had it about a month. Cant wait to see the 'full' game.
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
Damn, I really am impressed, and that doesn't happen often.
I've had this for a few weeks. Awesome game and will only get better.
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.
When you make your first Munar Landing or you get an overwhelming sense of achievement.
Played it last year and it was still fun, Will have to check what the added as of them.
This looks so cool
KSP is one of the most fun and challenging games I've ever played. Get it.
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.
Get your RCS translation controls down and it will be WAY easier. Then it will become old hat.
Umm, at the cost of many, many lives, you just happened to leave that out so... addendum!
@Ryuuken27 @psycohideo Maybe you could ask them to include some differential tensor calculations before launch, that should be hard enough for you to pose a challenge.
@fuzzier @Majkic666 Here is your free version idiot http://store.steampowered.com/app/220200/
@fuzzier @Majkic666 its not free.. a really old version of the game is free though, also to Majkic this game is nothing like gmod though gmod is fun to mess around in
@RiP_ili @Dasim64 Yes Scott definitely knows what he's doing but I'll take funny over techy any day. But thanks for the heads up.
@WhiteWolf1213 @airronin @MAD_AI if you have problems with your rocket becomming unstable try adding struds to it especialy between fuel tanks wether it is fuel tanks that are stacked or if they are ment to be dropped mid flight struds will save your rocket
I've been trying all day (in between studying for final exams) to actually get a functioning manned station into a stable orbit....needless to say I still haven't gotten there. Been running into fuel and structural stability issues.
@FlyingAce1016 @fuzzier @Majkic666
The demo was updated, its a version of the game only about 2 releases behind.
Scot is awesome funny and techy he thought me everything I know about KSP.
