A game I’d like to play #7

No Man’s Sky

Steam Description:

‘Inspired by the adventure and imagination that we love from classic science-fiction, No Man’s Sky presents you with a galaxy to explore, filled with unique planets and lifeforms, and constant danger and action.

In No Man’s Sky, every star is the light of a distant sun, each orbited by planets filled with life, and you can go to any of them you choose. Fly smoothly from deep space to planetary surfaces, with no loading screens, and no limits. In this infinite procedurally generated universe, you’ll discover places and creatures that no other players have seen before – and perhaps never will again.’

Although I have heard many mixed reviews, I followed this game for ages and got so excited about it’s potential and design, I just want to play it even if it isn’t as rewarding as people say!

Why do I want to play it?

The steam page gives 3 great reasons: Embark on an epic voyage, find your own destiny and share your journey.

Whether your just exploring the surfaces of newly found planets, or embarking on a quest to upgrade your ship and weapons by battling space pirates, this game has some huge potentials for endless fun!

The main reason I want to play it, after watching interviews with the developers (who are extremely clever designers and programmers), is the procedural generation capabilities for a game to create its own universe. That’s right, UNIVERSE!

This game could offer endless possibilities, in an ever growing environment that is still growing and always adding to its own creation.

Here is a little video that hooked me when I watched it (after seeing the trailer and listening to the E3 concert release for the trailer).

I think the main reason I like the concept of this game and the technology used is that I am a huge fan of Sci-Fi, the major concept of which is to explore space/different species/civilizations and see what nobody else has ever seen.

No Man’s Sky has it all, I just want to have a chance to play it and experience it for myself. Do you?

Here’s a link to the E3 concert I mentioned:

Thanks for reading this,

James
