If you only watch one trailer today, make it this one. We'll wait. Do it.
Yeah. Hello Games, the developers behind Joe Danger, are taxing their four-man team to the limit with No Man's Sky: an entire procedurally-generated universe to explore in a first-person Sci-Fi adventure. Every star in the sky has a planet or two to explore, a galaxy full of players, potential and promise. And space combat. Hinging on the thrill of exploration, No Man's Sky will feature an infinity of planets with their own ecosystems, fauna and flora, all procedurally-generated and waiting for players to discover their secrets.
We need it madly. This is very much what we all want from 'next-gen' gaming experiences. Mind you, release platforms haven't been announced yet (we expect a PC release at bare minimum), though Sony's indie expert Shadid Ahmad is making some interesting (if slightly biological) noises.
To me, No Man's Sky is very reminiscent of MirrorMoon EP, which released earlier this year from Santa Ragione. In fact, it's exactly the same concept, though with a very different art style. If you want a taste of what this might be like, check out our MirrorMoon EP review.
