SQUAD: To the mun and back

A very interesting article appeared on polygon.com about Kerbal Space Program. It’s not your regular article about the game, but more about how it came to be, and a history of Squad, the company that has created this masterpiece. And how one man’s dream came to be. Originally it wasn’t even supposed to make any money, it started as just a side project. I didn’t even know Squad is originally a marketing company (and apparently still is !).

Kerbal space program pt. 1

Lately I have been playing quite a bit of this ‘game’. And I say that in quotes as it is also very educational. It even peeked my interest in astronomy, I bough the astronomy for dummies book as well :).

A while back I finally managed to put a rover on the Mun in career mode. It only functions once it’s in the sunlight as it is electrical powered. The pics show a Kerbal (Bill I think) driving it, but it also drives on it’s own). It’s still sitting on the Mun ;).

I’ll try to post more as I get further and further into career mode !
