After more than a decade, development of Kerbal Space Program has come to an end

Kerbal Space Program studio Squad has finally brought development of its acclaimed space flight sim to a close, over a decade after the game's first public release.

Kerbal Space Program - which initially launched into early access via Squad's website in 2011 - gives players the opportunity to build and pilot their own fully-functional spaceships, rockets, and vehicles (while managing all aspects their alien race's quest for the stars if they choose), using actual proper science-y systems, from realistic aerodynamic to orbital physics.

Since leaving early access back in 2015, Kerbal Space Program has remained in active development, receiving numerous updates and expansions along the way - including a recent free "next-gen" update for PS5 and Xbox Series X/s. However, Squad has now confirmed - after warning players the space flight sim's 1.12 update would be its last major release back in June - that its decade-plus-long journey is officially at an end.

Golf Club Wasteland – New Gameplay Today

I've always wondered what I'd do if I were left alone at the end of the world. Would I travel? Would I attempt to read a lifetime's worth of books, only for my glasses to shatter and be left with nothing but blurred paperbacks? Or would I hit the links and golf my way through humanity's destruction? Developer Demagog Studio says the latter in its new game Golf Club Wasteland.

Players take up an iron and putt their way through a deserted Earth, all the while trying to find out what happened to the planet through the music and stories of Radio Nostalgia, a radio station headquartered on Mars where the remaining super-rich have fled after Earth became uninhabitable.

Join Marcus Stewart and Alex Stadnik as they grab their clubs and play a few holes in Golf Club Wasteland. During the video, the boys talk about the game's intriguing world-building and how it's kept them engaged throughout their time in the game. They also discuss the golfing mechanics and how Golf Club Wasteland isn't a slouch.

Kellogg’s pulls Overwatch sponsorship over ‘troubling’ Blizzard allegations

Another sponsor has pulled its endorsement from Activision Blizzard’s Overwatch League. On Friday, the Kellogg Co. confirmed that it “will not be moving forward” with OWL partnership programs this year. The move is Kellogg’s response to allegations of gender-based discrimination and sexual harassment at Overwatch publisher and developer Blizzard Entertainment.

“We find these allegations troubling and inconsistent with our commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion,” Kellogg spokesperson Kris Bahner said in a statement to Polygon. “While Activision Blizzard has announced plans to address the challenging issues it faces, we will not be moving forward with any new programs this year, but will continue to review progress made against their plans.”

Genshin Impact player breaks into game’s new zone, way before they’re supposed to

Genshin Impact players have found a way to bust into the game’s newest location long before they’re supposed to. Players have tried fruitlessly to wiggle their way into the game’s newest region, Inazuma, by building massive ice bridges across vast stretches of open water, only to be foiled by developer Mihoyo’s explicit attempts to prevent that.

One truly dedicated player, however, discovered a method that combines clever manipulation of their internet connection with a character’s surprisingly useful ice attack.
