A truly brilliant game available at the lowest price is ever been, straight from the publisher. You can choose either a Steam key or a DRM free version which is downloaded straight from their website.

The cheapest this game had ever been, the last lowest price was in 2013 £10.79. In the last several Steam sales it's always been 40% off which is £17.99.

In Kerbal Space Program you build rockets using parts and try to send adorable Kerbals in to orbit and eventually land on other planets.

It's my all time favourite game. I've owned the DRM free version since 2013 and bought the Steam version this year.

Scott Manley's comprehensive video tutorial series covering your first rocket all the way to landing on the Mun.

Why did you buy the steam version too, after having the DRM free one?

Just curious because I am trying to decide which version to get.

The Steam version was getting beta access for about a month to the new features which were a massive overhaul including upgraded performance this year, and I wanted in, and I wanted it on my steam list anyway because I adore the game

Thanks, but I presume both versions are functionally identical? So there is no advantage to one over the other?

i.e.
Steam - ease of access/updates
Standard version - no DRM

Heat added. Can I use a steam controller for this game or is it keyboard only?

You're spot on. They both function the same.

It does indeed support the Steam Controller.

The lowest ever price was free but that was a long time ago.

hot hot hot, I can tell from your avatar that you quite like this game lol
Edited by: "Maevoric" 17th Dec 2016

Thanks OP, bought it. Never seems to drop below £14 in Steam sales.

Brilliant game. Well worth it.

Fantasic game, almost the polar opposite of No Mans Sky.

Fingers crossed they'll follow this up with a more fleshed out KSP2.

Although im already onboard have some heat!

Definite heat from me - I've put 1200 hours into Kerbal and still love it. Buy it if you have any interest in space or rockets. It's lush.

Good shout! Bought, thanks. How many hours are you up to?

On Steam it says 122 hours, but I think I've easily racked up 600+, in all honesty it could really be 1000, I just have no way to track it before steam.

do i need a beefy GPU to run this? Wondering if I can run it it on my MBP (i7, 16gb ram, GT750m) either in bootcamp of OSX i dont care. Mostly for when im traveling.

Nope, CPU performance is quite important though

As Vulcanproject stated the game is much more CPU dependent than graphics. There are a good set of graphics options that would allow you to fine tune what your card can manage, and I have played this game on an old Dell i5 first gen CPU with an old AMD mobile gpu at low settings.

I think your i7 and 750m will be just fine.

That's great info. Thanks! Good to know there are enough graphics options to fine tune settings. Really looking forward to spending the next week figuring stuff out lol

great price. Bought at £17 a month ago after holding off a year thinking it would never go this low again!

Picked this up a while back when it was £9.99 on the G2A ebay page. great game!!

What exactly does the drm mean you cant do? Does it force you to connect to the internet to play?

Actually no, I've found out the Steam version can be played without Steam, so it's DRM free as well.

No, not at all.

The Steam version comes with the normal steam requirements. You can take the folder in steam out if you want to try different mods. The KSP version you can download hundreds of copies if you like.

It's great for helping the kids with physics homework!

R + F - P = D(Jeb)

Where R is Rocket, F is fuel and P is the parachute you forgot to include in your build. D is dead.... dead Jebediah

I didn't even particularly want this game as I have so many others on my to do list but reading through the comments to see the love it's getting makes me want it!

Brilliant game!

I've been tempted with this a few times, but wondering how difficult it is to get into it.

I'm not after something simple, and am up for learning and a challenge, but not if I have to spend a real long time reading up on stuff and watching videos. Any advice on how hard it is, and does the game guide you with a tutorial and stuff or is it difficult to learn?

The in game tutorial got a massive overhaul as of 1.1, they really stepped it up, so you can try the scenarios and tutorials to get a grip.

If you're still having issues, the Scott Manley tutorials I linked are comprehensive, but also you don't necessarily need to start from the beginning if you understand the building aspect and literally just need to know how to fly to orbit you can skip ahead.

There's a demo on Steam, not sure if it reflects the latest version or not, but it will let you build a basic rocket and it is possible to get to orbit on the basic parts.

Overall the game rewards learning, you'll get the idea of orbital mechanics, transfers landing by trying them out.

There's a sandbox mode which just gives you all the parts and no restrictions, a science only mode where you have to get science to unlock parts, and full Career mode where you have to earn money flying missions, getting science to unlock more parts etc.

I think reasonably within your first hour you will have made it past the atmosphere and landed, not necessarily an orbit, but you'll get to space

Thanks, think I'll go for it.

Sorry, I'd missed the video link but will check that out if I get stuck.

It's not easy but once you have learned a few basic principles you learn by disaster. There will be plenty of disasters. So you will learn plenty lol

Learn by disaster, this so perfectly captures this game haha.

Bit of a pain to get a key from them! Bought it last night and no steam key showing. Sent of a support ticket 24hrs ago and just the automatic response so far

Assuming you bought the steam key, it should be on your account page here https://kerbalspaceprogram.com/profile.php?userProf=info

Should look like this http://i.imgur.com/5msSRVW.jpg

Yeah, I have the second one but no steam key.... tried it in a few different browsers but no joy.

Paid with PayPal so it'll be fine.

Thanks for your help though.... Merry Christmas

I will buy this unless the price gets beaten in the next 10 minutes!

@Darkle Heads up this is now available from steam directly for the same price.

Roger that!
