Picks
Chris
Kerbal Space Program
– Available on Steam. It’s still in Beta and is certainly rough round the edges but is an amazing Space Sandbox game – where you’re pretty much left to start up your own space program from scratch.
– Build rockets, send manned missions into space, to the mun, try and get everyone back safely!
– Nicely characterized but extremely technical
– Thanks to Paul for the pick.
