    No Man’s Sky, the next game from Joe Danger studio Hello Games, was debuted during VGX tonight. Sean Murray from Hello Games stooped by to discuss how the game is about exploration, and takes place in a sci-fi setting. It’s more than a persistent world, and you can fly to various planets in your spaceship. Murray said:

    It’s a first-person game, some space and planet combat, and is a real world and real living universe. It’s an adversarial universe. These planets have an ecology, ecosystem and you are not necessarily at the top of the chain. It’s a massively multiplayer world. Players can switch between walking on land, swimming, and flying in various ships; they can shoot holes into asteroids and then fly through them.

    No Man's Sky - Not delayed despite studio flood.

    Indie developer Hello Games says it will not delay the release of its next game, No Man's Sky, despite a devastating flood at its Guildford studio. Co-founder Sean Murray has said the studio is back to 'full speed' at a temporary location as it works to secure a permanent base, and the ordeal won't result in a delay to No Man's Sky. Murray said of a delay:

    Murray adds that, while seeking help through a Kickstarter crowd fund has been suggested, it's not currently in the plan. He added:

    Hello Games begun restoring its Guildford studio earlier this month after a local flood ruined the property. PCs, monitors, furniture, a door and even a wall were damaged beyond repair during the flood. The studio said it isn't covered for insurance due to being placed in a "high-risk" flood zone.

    No Man's Sky - Developer Warns of Beta Scam.

    After facing a devastating flood, Hello Games is apparently back on track with development of its next game, No Man's Sky. And while the announcement trailer and subsequent screenshots may have you excited about diving into the game's sci-fi world, be wary of anyone offering up early access. The Hello Games Twitter account posted a warning on Friday, disowning any mentions of alleged beta keys:

    A quick Google search revealed a website supposedly offering over 3,000 beta keys, urging the uninformed to just click this button for access. Based on Hello Games' tweet, you probably shouldn't do that.

    No Man's Sky - Procedural creation scares me, creator says.

    No Man's Sky's procedural creation engine lets its four-person team create a huge variety of content with a single click, according to Hello Games. Studio co-founder Sean Murray told Polygon that preparing the game's impressive video debut for VGX in December was easy with the systems already in place. Murray said:

    No Man's Sky - Gameplay Trailer.

    No Man's Sky is an indie game, being developed by four people. When we first saw it back in December 2013, we were blown away to say the least. The developers have now brought their open-world sci-fi shooter to E3. Check out the No Man's Sky E3 2014 trailer:

    No Man's Sky - Studio created new engine because existing ones limit what's possible.

    Upcoming PS4 title No Man's Sky was created with a bespoke game engine because existing ones limit design capabilities, the boss of Hello Games has suggested. Hello Games founder and managing director Sean Murray told Kotaku that he's proud his team has created a system capable of generating infinite variants of individual creatures and objects. He explained:

    When asked why the team didn't simply use a pre-made engine like Unity, Murray replied:

    The game's bespoke engine lets Hello Games set a list of rules for a particular item's properties, then leave the game to generate random variations of that item based on those rules. Taking ship design as an example, Murray said:

    No Man's Sky - Developer confirms PS4 debut, hopes to come to PC.

    No Man's Sky sounded pretty fantastic when we first heard about it in late 2013, and our E3 preview was very exciting too. But a PC release has never actually been confirmed, and speaking to Eurogamer, Hello Games co-founder Sean Murray refused to commit to it one way or the other. The No Man's Sky website currently lists launch platforms as to be announced, and Murray wasn't much more forthcoming. He said:

    But then it gets a bit dicier. When asked if a PC edition could launch alongside the PS4 release, or even before it, he continued:

    It's a very vague response, the sort of thing that could be taken as either a reluctance to say no or a desire to give us all a happy surprise at some point down the road. There's no question that it should come to the PC, and the fact that Murray wants it to happen is heartening, but the absence of a definite yes has me expecting it'll be no. Either way, the bottom line is this: No Man's Sky looks very cool, and you might have to play it on a console.

    No Man's Sky - How It became the talk of E3.

    Hello Games' No Man's Sky was the game on everyone's lips at E3 2014 and Sony has released a short video documentary about the game's journey. The video features studio co-founder Sean Murray discussing the history of the studio, its Joe Danger games, the inspiration for No Man's Sky, and the trials and tribulations it faced on the road to E3. No Man's Sky drops players off at the outskirts of the universe with a mission to journey towards its centre. According to the developers, completing this task requires intelligence, imagination and co-operation.

    Players are set free to explore space in search of new worlds. Stars and planets are created procedurally as they are discovered, with unique environments and complete ecosystems to match them. It's a persistent online world, so once discovered, these locations become available to others. The act of discovery is also an act of creation, explains the report. Players will be able to make significant changes to locations - changes which will remain in affect for other players who follow.

    No Man’s Sky - PC version isn’t a certainty.

    During E3, Hello Games’ managing director Sean Murray sat down with Rock, Paper, Shotgun to discuss the company’s ambitious procedural space exploration sim, No Man’s Sky. The conversation inevitably turned toward the release schedule for the game, during which Murray confirmed that the game would debut on PS4, and that a PC release is not guaranteed. Murray said:

    RPS later sought clarification on the statement, learning that its vagueness stems from the fact that Hello Games is reluctant to increase the size of the team that it has purposely kept small. Plus, the company doesn’t want to announce anything until they are sure of it.

    No Man's Sky - Will Feature Traditional Multiplayer.

    Hello Games has said that in No Man's Sky, players will be dropped on the edges of the universe, far away from other players, to give one another space and time to build up their ships, explore, and eventually cross paths with one another as they delve toward the center. Studio founder Sean Murray said:

    However, for those who want a more traditional multiplayer experience, Hello Games is working on a multiplayer system that will allow people to play along with their friends, but they aren't ready to say what this will be.

    No Man's Sky - PC Confirmed?

    A post on NeoGAF claims there is a confirmation in the latest print issue of Edge magazine that No Man's Sky is a timed exclusive for the PS4 and saying the procedurally generated sci-fi game is also coming to Windows. This is not confirmed, as the scan the original poster claims to possess is not allowed on the forum. There are many who believe a Windows edition of this is inevitable, and it is one of the target platforms listed in Wikipedia, even though the citation for this is blank.

    No Man's Sky - Confirmed for PC, Is a PS4 Timed Exclusive.

    No Man's Sky details have slowly emerged since its announcement in December 2013. We've gotten a look at the gameplay, heard about the game's infinite world, and seen the game's procedural generation at work. But developer Hello Games has been quiet about which platforms the game would release on. We knew it was coming to the PlayStation 4, but how about the PC?

    Now we know that No Man's Sky will, in fact, launch on PC--although not right away. In the September issue of Edge, the game is confirmed to be a timed PS4 exclusive and will be released on computers at a later date. Hello Games' Sean Murray explained to Edge that working with the PS4 shaped how the team approached design, control, and performance. Murray explained:

    ello Games deliberately chose to lead with the PS4, as well. Its reasons encompass more than just limited resources, as well. Murray stated that focusing on the PS4 hardware gave the team the ability to maximize its procedural generation algorithms to make the environments as vivid and full as possible. He said:

    No Man's Sky launches in 2015.

    No Man's Sky - Includes over 18 quintillion planets.

    Upcoming procedurally generated sci-fi game No Man's Sky will include over 18 quintillion planets, according to its developer. Hello Games co-founder Sean Murray told IGN that the game uses a 64-bit number to generate all the planets in the universe. This means the total number of planets is 2 to the power of 64, or 18,446,744,073,709,551,616.

    Early in development, the game instead used a 32-bit number, offering a mere four trillion or so planets, with Murray saying at the time that it would:

    However, after fans on message boards started saying that due to technological limitations no game universe could be truly infinite, Hello Games decided to switch to the 64-bit number instead, meaning it would take around five billion years to spend one second on each planet. As IGN puts it, since the Earth's sun will burn out in 4.6 billion years, this means that theoretically the number of planets in No Man's Sky is indeed infinite because it would be impossible for the human race to see every one.

    No Man's Sky will be released on PS4 first, with a PC version to follow.

    No Man’s Sky - Dev explains what you actually do in the game.

    No Man’s Sky is simultaneously the most intriguing mystery and the most scary. Developer Hello Games is asked some questions and gives some solid answers. Eurogamer asked Hello Games’ Sean Murray a number of questions that are on everyone’s mind when they think about No Man’s Sky. The biggest one being, what do you actually do in the game? Sean said:

    Sean adds that the way the game is structured is in direct contrast to what we’ve come to expect from most modern games. Things like defined objectives and linear structures, whether in story or gameplay, are what Sean finds very predictable. So making an open-ended game was the goal from the outset.

    The full interview is a must read for anyone remotely interested in No Man’s Sky. Sean goes over various other elements of the game, such as trading, combat, and much more.

    No Man's Sky - E3 2015 Gameplay.

    Sean Murray of Hello Games showed off a little gameplay from the upcoming No Man's Sky at Sony's E3 conference on Sunday. After demonstrating a little combat, he piloted his ship a random planet he'd never visited before. After scanning for alien life, he demonstrated the destructible environment by blasting some rocks, at which point sentinels, the planet's protectors, chased him off.

    After spotting some fish in a lake, also showed how players will be able to discover and report new lifeforms. No release date was announced, and though it was at the Sony conference, we expect it to come to the PC.

    No Man's Sky - PC Confirmed.

    Hello Games announces No Man's Sky is coming to PC as well as PlayStation 4, saying they plan a simultaneous launch on both platforms for the ambitious procedurally generated space game. This confirms a report from last summer, but if this game isn't on your radar, here's a bit from its website:

    No Man's Sky - What You'll Actually Be Doing.

    While I don’t think I know anyone who isn’t at the very least intrigued by No Man’s Sky, what we’ve seen so far has raised some questions. In particular, most people want to know exactly what it is you do in the game.

    I mean, we know that you go exploring, throughout an outright preposterously massive galaxy, and you can discover new planets and species. There have also been the occasional scenes of space battles, and the occasional shots of combat – but largely Hello Games have been pretty evasive when it comes to the actual point of the game.

    Fortunately, a new video by PlayStation Access goes into a bit of detail, and to sum it up, it looks like No Man’s Sky will basically be an Elite style freeform space action adventure game with science! - and with crafting, trading, mining and combat. Check out the video embedded below to learn more.
