Due to multiplayer not officially being supported, Kerbal Space Program server hosting providers are rare. We will add more companies to this price list as we find them.
First released to the gaming community in 2011, Kerbal Space Program allows players to manage a space program and develop spacecraft. The game keeps the player motivated and interested through its use of “contracts” which are like missions that gives the game meaning. NASA and SpaceX have both shown interest in the game and its production.
You start off with a set of run down buildings, some basic rocket parts and a handful of cash. You then attempt to complete these missions using the primitive parts you start with to gain more cash and research points. Using the research points you can access more powerful and technologically advanced components to complete more complex missions.
The game has a steep learning curve as players must get their head around the rocket science. Many players will find themselves researching the real life physics of rocketry to get ahead in the game which is ultra realistic. Spending hours upon hours trying to land a craft you designed and built is the idea of a dream to some and a nightmare to others.
The game has a large modding community, the game is a perfect base for all sorts of modded versions.
Their is no official multiplayer mode in Kerbal Space Program. The only way you can achieve multiplayer is to use a mod, the most popular being DMP. You will need Kerbal Space Program server hosting to keep the dedicate server alive and allow all players to keep connection to it. Using your home computer to try and achieve the same result ends up with all sorts of problems.

A space building game that is hugely technical but you play in the FPS view. Stationeers is a new game with a huge array of items and systems to put together, you wont be getting bored of this soon. If you love the real nitty-gritty technical side of building and find the likes of Minecraft simple then this is for you.
The game is in Early Access and lacking much of a point or any real in game help but im sure that will change as it is further developed.

It’s a game that you can just switch on after work and chill out with. No need for any first-person-shooters or adventures. I love the simplicity of building a spaceship and trying to launch myself off the world. If you haven't tried this game yet then you are really missing out as it's a hidden gem for gamers.

I was really surprised by KSP. When I first bought it I never expected to walk away feeling so satisfied with a game. There is no shooting, killing zombies or aliens or even a story line, it's purely creating and conquering space. If you have a wild imagination and enjoy the thought of a space game that will not only keep you busy for hours but will teach you how space actually works then KSP is the game for you.
I really enjoy this game But I know it's not for everyone. I have tried to get several of my friends in to Kerbal Space Program but they just don't understand how truly amazing it actually is :( If you want a great game that you can spend hours on then I would suggest you at least try it out if you can get it the next time it's on sale.

To The MUN!! I reached the Mun in one of the fancy Rocket ships!!! As this game is a simulation the possibilities are endless and you can often find yourself in a lot of random situations depending on how you play the game. Really worth getting if you have played and love space games like space engineers.
Kerbal Space Program will test you to the limits. Build a rocket ship with hundreds of parts and try and escape the atmosphere. Sounds simple! But it will take you hours to get the hang of things. 100/100 this game rocks!
