In Kerbal Space Program, take charge of the space program for the alien race known as the Kerbals. You have access to an array of parts to assemble fully-functional spacecraft that flies (or doesn’t) based on realistic aerodynamic and orbital physics. Launch your Kerbal crew into orbit and beyond (while keeping them alive) to explore moons and planets in the Kerbol solar system, constructing bases and space stations to expand the reach of your expedition.Read full description
In Kerbal Space Program, take charge of the space program for the alien race known as the Kerbals. You have access to an array of parts to assemble fully-functional spacecraft that flies (or doesn’t) based on realistic aerodynamic and orbital physics. Launch your Kerbal crew into orbit and beyond (while keeping them alive) to explore moons and planets in the Kerbol solar system, constructing bases and space stations to expand the reach of your expedition.
Kerbal Space Program features three gameplay modes. In Science Mode, perform space experiments to unlock new technology and advance the knowledge of Kerbalkind. In Career Mode, oversee every aspect of the space program, including construction, strategy, funding, upgrades, and more. In Sandbox, you are free to build any spacecraft you can think of, with all parts and technology in the game.
• Build spaceships, rockets, and vehicles using any imaginable combination of parts, each with their own function that will affect the way your spacecraft behaves.
• Take full control over your ship’s setup to execute complex flight maneuvers.
• Manage your Kerbal crewmembers, including hiring, training, and sending them into space to become heroes.
• Discover a whole star system with unique moons and planets, exploring detailed terrain at a vast scale.
• Send your Kerbal crew outside their ships for “extra-vehicular” activities.
• Dock spacecraft together to construct space stations, massive starships, and surface bases on new planets.
• Use satellites to scan terrain and find biomes and other anomalies.
• Set up communications networks to communicate between your spacecraft and Kerbal Space Center.
• Research and develop new technologies to extract valuable information and resources from all over the solar system, and much more!

This game is probably my favourite game of all time. It's the one I keep coming back to when I'm bored. It's always a blast (literally) to start a new campaign and work your way up to sending rockets all the way to the end of the Kerbol System, only to realize you can never land because you forgot parachutes! Poor Jebediah, guess he'll stay adrift until I can send someone to save him... P.S. Don't forget parachutes.
I have an 8-year-old boy, and this is just the best game. He gets to learn some stuff, think critically, and have tons of fun. I love that Squad have left it pretty open to the modding community too. Despite it being a "space" simulator, we have been able to drop in cars, boats, submarines, propeller planes, an 18-wheeler, and parachutes for the Kerbals themselves! I highly recommend this to pretty much anyone, but especially with kids. And when making yet another rocket or plane seems dull, you can always blow stuff up! 10/10 would purchase again and again.
This game is amazing! Build your own rockets, shuttles, space probes, aircraft, etc. Test your ability to reach and explore a number of planets. This is the ultimate sandbox game in my opinion. Then comes mods! This game has a vast number of mods that add so much to the game. This is a must have for anyone!
KSP, for all its quirks, is quite simply one of the most played game I have. There's very few other games that allow you to learn about space physics, build rockets, and have an explosion all in the space of less than an hour. The replay value is virtually unlimited as you can always build new rockets for a new experience. Sandbox mode is particularly fun since there is no limit to your imagination.
+Can run on most potatos +Is not one of those boring simulators +Graphical and Part mods are amazing +No degree in astrophysics is needed +You can make Rovers, Planes, Rockets, Shuttles, (Boats?), ect. +Total freedom to walk around and explore the solar system +Things to do on other planets (Collect science, Make bases, Drill for ore) +3 different modes- Sandbox, Career, or Science +Fantastic Community Cons -No stock/vanilla clouds or dynamics on any planets yet (there are plenty of mods though) -Fully mastering the game takes a good deal of time -Not entertaining for 10-year-old COD players -The addiction may cause sudden loss of girlfriends or career
