Kerbal Space Program updates will be free for those who own the game

Thursday, 11th April 2013 16:18 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Updates and expansions for Kerbal Space Program, which part of the first wave of paid-Alphas allowed on Steam, will be free to customers who own the game and those those who buy it before the end of the month. The announcement was made by Squad after early adopters, who were promised free updates, became upset over having to pay extra for future expansions containing “major game-changing sets of features.” The game follows the Minecraft business model, meaning the price of the core game increases as development continues. Thanks, PC Gamer.

    It’s definitely a fascinating little game. Hard to master, but I’m looking forward to seeing where it ends up.

    This is a weird one. Only seen a couple of videos and understand the premise. Just unsure how much content will be in it, what there is to do once you’ve launched and so on. Does look fun though.

    Edit: Ok just realised there’s a demo. So used to there not being one. Well might as well have a stab at it.

    @2 Try the demo. It gives you a limited number of parts to play with.

    Basically it “is” a space program. Build rocket, launch rocket, fly rocket. Then, once you enter space, you can set your course either for another planet (hugely complex) or for earth orbit (a lot less complex).

    You can couple rockets together to build space stations, you can build landers and vehicles, or even bases but honestly that’s so difficult I can’t even fathom it at this point.

    I’m just building big rockets, shooting them into space and slowly trying to get the hang of making them orbit properly :P

    You’ll definitely be relying on YouTube tutorials for a good while, that’s for sure.

    That one gives you an idea.

    @3 Thank you for that. Its definitely getting a try out. Sounds like its hugely involving as well which is always good and I really appreciate the tutorial link as I’ll no doubt need it
