Kerbal Space Program
Kerbal Space Program is a game about green men with big heads.
For a one line summary, the above is fairly accurate. On the other hand, KSP is so much more than that:
- Spaceplanes (and normal planes)
- Exploring remote planets
- Easter eggs 😉
KSP lets you design and build space-themed creations, and fly them around the Kerbal universe.
KSP comes with three modes (as of 1.0.4):
My first post gives an overview of the differences between modes.
I’ve currently (as of 27-1-2015) got a pair of games going, an older Science only game, and a brand new Career mode game. Which I have yet to post on.
One of the strong points of KSP is the quantity and quality of mods available, adding everything from autopilot to life support. Mods can be found in multiple places, but the best place to look (in my opinion) is on Curse or in the KSP forums.
