The indie space simulator from developer Squad is getting a major update today, entitled Kerbal Space Program: First Contract. The biggest additions to the game in this update are a huge advancement in the game’s career mode, and a 64-bit version of the game for Windows.
Players can take on Contracts, manage a new in-game currency that allows them to buy rocket and plane parts, and earn reputation for their efforts. Reputation is raised for completed contracts and bringing Kerbals back in one piece. Failing missions lowers reputation.
