I have seen this game around so much that eventually, I had to cave and see what all the fuss was about.
My initial impression of it was a crafter-style game where you build all sorts of different, crazy, rockets and hopefully get into orbit. Cutesy astronaunts may or may not survive the effort if and when your rocket inevitably blows up.
Although that sounded kinda fun for a while, I couldn’t tell why people were investing so much time in the game. It came on special, so I grabbed it… and now I’m kinda hooked too. I made a 15-minute video to show you WHY. This is what people aren’t mentioning: The fantastic blend of depth, gameplay and realism (that is to say, in all categories, not too much and not too little) hooks you in pretty damn quickly.
