No Man's Sky

No Man's Sky


At the recent VGX awards, one of the real standout announcements (in my view, at least) was for Hello Games' upcoming No Man's Sky; a quite ambitious ground, sea, and space exploration game with a massive procedurally-generated universe to play around in.

I find it interesting to see a game with such a strong Elite vibe off of it show up like this, not least since Elite: Dangerous is also in the works. How might the two games compare and contrast in their respective visions of what lies beyond?

Hmm, wow, that looks really interesting, but also really ambitious. It's one of those things that's either going to turn out to be really great or utterly dire (or just plain non-existent). It's going to be difficult to develop it with just four people, though, I've looked into the idea of developing games before and I wouldn't want to program even something like BMW from scratch with four people, let alone this.

Honestly, it looks like it could be really awesome, but I have a suspicion it'll never see the light of day. It just seems too ambitious for the people developing it.

Wow, that does look pretty awesome. Is that from actual gameplay, or is it just a mock-up of what the game might look like?

I think it's meant to be in-game, though we'll see how it pans out once the game is published.

This still looks pretty cool. I hope they bring it out on XBox One or PC (since those are the two I actually have).
