Oh, I can fix this... just petition @SQUAD to hire me!!!  hehehe  

I can absolutely promise the writing won't be terrible, or edgy, or crazy... or campy... or completely out-there... sure.... trust me...  :confused:

(sorry, couldn't help myself.... lmao)

No problem - I trust you. After all, you swear you're not out to take over the world and you haven't...*checks nervously for black helicopters flown by oddly vitreous pilots*... yet.

Don't worry we have no plans to force any updates :wink:

This is good. I might stop after 1.3 since squad will no longer own the game. I have seen TT's other game lineups, and unfortunately, am not optimistic about KSP's future.

That's my interpretation as well. I wonder how that contract looks. Can SQUAD be replaced as KSP dev? Do they have right of first refusal for future titles in the franchise? I would have expected to see the "game studio" division of SQUAD split off and moved along with the IP.

Good luck to all involved regardless!

Um, the game is now owned by TT. So, with that said... I could see KSP in the future without Squad.

Heheehe... so that's why all the black helicopters suddenly headed south!

Just about any reputable writer would be decent. We were raised on space. Not what we see everywhere else.

Good to know I'm not the only one.

As for all questions about the community, Take Two has said they will support the community. 

As for if the game goes downhill, there are the "Previous" betas on steam.

Why stop after 1.3? To prove a point? To spite Squad for making a smart decision?

This thread is hilarious. I'm glad that Squad has made a pile of cash on a great game. I hope that Take-Two takes KSP in a good direction, although any takeover like this is fraught with peril. And, yeah, I can't see any way that TTI's first priority for the franchise won't be KSP 2.0. Ground-up rebuild to fix all the previous problems, shiny new full-price release to help recoup their purchase costs, gets them out of all of the free DLC promises.

Because they hate the fact that companies exist to make money?

I'm stopping at 1.3 because Take-Two is right at the top of my list of companies to boycott.

Because we feel that we'll get DLCs, new games, or more updates like 1.3 (which due to lack of content, I did not update to).

Why? Because me and others think we hear a leak aboard this ship. We would like off of it now rather than later.

Loyal reason. One of the best ways to get a message across without fighting. Try spreading your message using Reddit though.

How much did KSP cost for Take Two?

Sorry, we can’t talk about any specifics of the deal.

I wouldn't say "at a loss for words", more like "that's all the words this warranted." :wink:

A bit worried here. KSP managed to do so well without a publisher, selling some 2 million copies. What would a publisher bring to the table now, years after the release, besides a quick cash infusion? I'm sure the money is probably great, but I feel a bit sad Squad decided it would be worth it to sell the rights of their masterpiece which they put so much effort and love into.

Oh! Perhaps a physical copy in a nice metal case in the shape of a decoupler?

That would be sweet and I would pay for it.

I understand why many of you are concerned, but the whole team believes this is a step in the right direction to bring KSP forward. Take-Two values the creative independence of its collaborators and teams, so we’ll continue to operate autonomously and have total creative control, now with the best tools and complete support from Take-Two to realize our vision. And there are many and substantia benefits with this partnership: We are getting a long term commitment from Take-Two to continue with KSP development, as well as their full support in all kinds of aspects, including but not limited to production support, marketing, development, customer support and QA.

Damn, out of likes. But yes, I would pay so much for a collectors edition of sorts.

 

^ooooh, QA. That's going to speed things up greatly I'd imagine.

So did Microsoft in 2002 when they bought Rareware. :/

You mean the company that hit hard times because all they really made was 3d platformers which died out, costs of making new games were too high and ended up becoming an in-house developer for Microsoft. The same are releasing a new game this year which looks good and isn't a 3d platformer?

You mean the company that helped pioneer the SNES in the 32bit era and also created several Smash classic hits on the SNES and N64 that still have cult followings even after 20 years?
