Learn How To Build Rockets With The Kerbal Space Program

The Kerbal Space Program is an indie sandbox game from Squad. The game drops players into a spaceport, gives them a box of high-tech Legos, and ask them to build a rocket to the stars. Failing is almost as fun as succeeding.

Squad just announced that Kerbal Space Program will soon receive the first of several updates which focus on the game’s Career Mode. Players will be able to hire their own astronauts, built rockets under a budget, and take on contracts to earn money. Here are a few other details you can expect from the update:

  • Crew Management: Select your Kerbal astronauts from a list of applicants, and track the status of the ones you have in the new Astronaut Complex Facility. Also, pick and choose the crew for new missions before launch with the new crew assignment panels
  • Updated Construction Facility Scenes: Admire the view with completely overhauled and updated Vehicle Assembly and Space Planes Hangar buildings
  • New Flight Control System: Re-built from scratch, the new Stability Augmentation System (or more popularly known as Sickness Avoidance Solution) should be a drastic improvement for new and old players
  • Terrain Additions: Many planets and moons around the Kerbal Solar System have been updated to feature beautiful new landscapes, featuring procedurally-generated craters and little hills and valleys, which are even more fun to land (or crash) on than before

Check out the screens below, and if you're interested in checking out Kerbal Space Program, you can download the game via Steam’s Early Access Program or on the Kerbal Space Program website.

  • Little late on getting this out there. Kerbal has been around a good while :p
  • After watching Scott Manley on YouTube play this, I would feel like the dumbest person in the world putting a multimillion dollar rocket together.

  • Mod
    I hope they create a budget system and attach a dollar value to each part soon. The game's definitely fun to screw around in - I love building obscene, convoluted rockets in the sandbox mode and seeing how well I can pilot them - but having a career mode where I have to manage a budget for my rockets (and trying to build a rocket to the Mun with as little cash as possible) will add a good layer of challenge and direction for the game.
  • i played for 15 hours and never made it to orbit :/ i stopped playing it haha

  • This game is amazing, It takes a while to learn how to do things but after you get the hang of it, you just can't stop playing

  • Mod
    That's it. I'm making a Steam right now. I'm tired of missing all these great games. I am getting this and Team Fortress 2 ASAP.

  • Really wish I had picked this up during the sale, but no moneyz!! :(

  • I can't wait for this update!

  • Well I picked this game up. Yet I am waiting for it to become more. Just picked it up cheap as it was on sale. Now tried to play it and really the learning curve is too much for me to handle with so much other distractions. Can't really sit down and just play it. Plus wish there was a bit of a multi-player. Heh...that would be fun....some times.

  • It really is a great "game".

    It really has a ton of potential, and is still fun even in beta.

  • Kinda expensive for an indie game. 23 bucks. Might pick it up when it's cheaper.
  • MORE ROCKETS, MORE SPACE!

  • sweeeet! I've had this game for like a year but haven't played it much. Its really good though.

  • SPAAAAAACE! I'M IN SPACE.
  • Anyone else REALLY want to see a Test Chamber on this where an editor plays it for the first time?
  • So exited, glad to get updates

  • This game is great but it is hard. Patience and remember youtube is your friend.

  • Awesome! KSP has been absorbing a lot of my time recently, so this is really good.

  • Fun but got boring and complicating too fast for me.
