No Man's Sky

10 posts in this topic

So I watched the VGX awards and honestly there was one upcoming game that blew me away. The game is called No Man's Sky, and it's going to re-define what we percieve as first person space sims. The game is being developed by Hello Games, which are the same dudes that gave us the Joe Danger series. The Universe you explore is procedurally generated, meaning every star in the sky, you can travel to it. Not only that, you can also explore each planet that revolves around any star, for example you can explore the vast seas of a planet, or if you see a mountain way way off in the distance, you can travel there and climb on top, and hop into your space ship when your done and seamlessly fly up into space to continue your search for new worlds. One thing I'm not sure about however, the game is only being developed by a team of four guys, and they have a launch date of sometime in 2014. Will this be another failed un-delivered promise like Star Command? Of course, only the future can decide.

Heres a link to a site describing the game and some gameply from VGX:

The thing I loved the most about it is that it's someone using the extra power of the new consoles to make something we've never seen before, instead of just using it to make something we've seen a million times already only shinier.

We're all itching for info right now, unfortunatley I'm not sure we'll be seeing anything more for at least a couple more months. One things for sure though guys, this, like bobbetybob said, will truly be a next-gen game. Heres to hoping that a small four man team can carry the burden of such an ambitious project, come out on top, and amaze the world.

There are a few of those games on their ways, like Elite:Dangerous or Limit Theory

Like I said in the thread about this on the In The News forum I worry these guys are used to Joe Danger and can't handle a serious game. I will wait for more info before getting super excited about this.

Looks interesting but my potential purchase of it depends on the variety of the procedural content and what other things are in the game, like co-op / multiplayer, character creation, crafting and so on. Don't see much of a point in getting it if it only ends up being swim/walk/fly around looking at pretty worlds and playing dodge-the-asteroid. Must say though for four people it looks amazing so far, I'm very interested to learn more about it. :)

No Man's Sky better give me a reason to explore the planets other than "because exploration".
