Kerbal Space Program for PC, PS4 and etc. is an unusual game combining elements of many genres. The players are required to develop their own space program. The game was created by the Squad studio consisting only of a couple of people and led by Felipe Falanghe, also known as HarvesteR.
In Kerbal Space Program for PC, PS4 and etc., the player is given a relatively complex task of developing their own space program from a scratch. Thus, at the beginning, the player is required to build a spacecraft using many different parts. Each of them serves a specific purpose and affects the ship in flight. The spaceship is supposed to reach the Earth's orbit with a crew onboard, and then travel to one of the two moons of planet Kerbin, for example. The mission ends with an exceptionally difficult landing.
In the main, open game mode, the player is free to experiment with their spacecraft's settings. However, the game features also a set of story missions, which collectively build up a campaign (once the game was released, those elements became available). In this mode, the player hires and trains astronauts, conducts research, builds space stations, as well as bases and visits dozens of planets and moons.
Kerbal Space Program for PC, PS4 and etc. sparked the interest of players with several features it offers. Above all, the ship editor is both extensive and demanding - the player is capable of creating hundreds of space shuttles. The game offers a physics-based flight simulation generating realistic collisions and events. Furthermore, the player is required to monitor parameters, such as the amount of fuel or temperature. Apart from that, Kerbal Space Program offers proceduarlly generated environments of the in-game planets and many other interesting features. The game supports mods as well.
Kerbal Space Program is relatively minimalistic in terms of the visuals, but this makes them more legible. The game utilizes the Unity3D engine and the in-game physics are based on the PhysX technology.
