As a kid I followed the space program from Mercury to Apollo with intense interest, and even tried to master the mathematics of orbital mechanics well before getting my degrees in Math and Physics. So when I saw this my curiosity was naturally piqued.
KSP is available for direct download or via Steam. The price is currently under $30. Steam offers a small warning that the game is in Beta. However, the game has been under constant development since it first was "released" by Squad several years ago. They provide new updates with added features and functionality every few months without extra charge. Which seems to me to be a very good thing. There is also a free demo if you just want to see what it looks like on your own computer.
It's a single player game, but if you do give it a try, please drop me a line and let me know what you think. And remember to send along some postcards from your explorations.
|I hope to see you on the Mün!|
