    This game is strange. The child-toy like assembly of a craft is in stark contrast to the unforgiving realistic physical simulations in the game and the odd mexican humour. The graphics is not amazing and the game is a strange guided open world.

    All in all it is extremely quirky and strange. It is probabbly worth owning if you are to the nerdy side of games and the engine is suited for some creative modding.

    I think it's kind of ironic that Techdirt has run many articles on the folly of "buying" content that is locked to online DRM servers, but yet you're promoting the sale of keys for a game that is locked to an online DRM service.

      Re:

      Not necesserily. Many games on steam have no DRM. For them Steam is used only as a distribution platform and, once they are installed, one can run these games without running Steam.

      That being said, I don't know whether that's the case for KSP as well.

        Re: Re:

        It is. Once you've downloaded the game from Steam you can run it without Steam being involved, create multiple installations (to run savegames with specific sets of mods)and so on. One of the reasons most gamers like Steam is that it's notionally just a storefront. It's a storefront that provides optional DRM services to developers, but that's a developer decision. If a particular developer ties their game tightly into the DRM side of Steam's platform and Steam falls over for a week, leaving players without their games, that's mostly the developer's choice to leave themselves open to that vulnerability. Less DRM-heavy games wouldn't be so heavily affected.
