In KSP, you must build a space-worthy craft, capable of flying its crew out into space, without killing them. At your disposal is a collection of parts, which must be assembled to create a functional ship. Each part has its own function and will affect the way a ship flies (or doesn’t). So strap yourself in, and get ready to try some Rocket Science!
The game has different game modes, you can play the Career Mode if you want to expand and manage your own Space Center, taking on missions and researching new technologies. Or you can play Sandbox mode if you’re only interested in flying and discovering the Kerbal universe without restrictions. There is even a mid point between these two, Science mode.
Squad started out as a marketing agency, specialising in interactive technologies development. Every year, the owners of the agency asked their employees to come up with original projects, and if there was a good and viable idea, it could get developed. Felipe was an employee at Squad for some time when one day he couldn’t take the stress of marketing anymore. He tried to quit, but the owners insisted he instead presented a viable video game project idea.
Not really believing his luck, Felipe set out to finish a pitch document for one of his childhood projects. Kerbals are the name of the little tin foil men that manned fireworks he took apart and turned into rockets as a child in his native Brasil. Four and a half years later, we are proud to present the outcome of this endeavor, Kerbal Space Program 1.0.
