Hello Games' Hugely Ambitious No Man's Sky Explores the Sea and Stars

Posted by Sammy Barker

The final frontier

The only real danger in No Man's Sky is that developer Hello Games has lost its mind, as this looks wildly ambitious. The release — announced during the VGX Awards earlier this evening — hints at a massive open world in which you can start out swimming and then jump into a spacecraft and explore the stars. It's not exactly a new Joe Danger title, then.

“If you see the stars, those are real stars, they have their own planets around them, and you can go there,” said gaffer Sean Murray during the abovementioned livestream. If all of that wasn't enough, it's supposedly all online, too. Oh, and there are massive space worms to uncover. Pretty cool, huh?

@get2sammyb I agree that this looks fantastic and I can't wait to see more... But did they say what the plot of the game was? I'm a little lost when it comes to that

It does have combat though, right? Of a sort, at least. This could be amazing.

@ShogunRok Yeah, it appears to have some sort of space combat, doesn't it? I'm hyped. I love the old-school sci-fi novel inspired art direction.

I'm dissapointed it's all going to be online though, this would look great if it can be played offline.

I wasn't the only one who thought this was a Star Wars game at first right ?

Right ?

I like this. Even if it's a tech demo game, that just means it'll get copied if it works. Then we have an amazing SW game, @Spidernoir . I don't mind a "brandless" experience at all. New opportunities to build their own brand. Cool cool cool

@Visiblemode Exaclty! That was the first thing that I thought of when I initially saw the trailer and after watching it again a few times over, I actually think that it just might be a minimilist styled game in the same vein as Proteus. If it is, I'm beyond excited for this one.

The four guys making this need a kickstarter or someone to throw a few million at em.

They lost me when I read this was an "online" game. If it has to be "connected", and only connected to play, then it would be a no go for me.

The concept is solid and reminds me of the ambitious game Haven on PS2. That games heart was in the right place and I've wanted something with that scope on a stronger system ever since.
