    More space sim/sci fi exploration games is always good in my book. Not enough info to judge but I hope they fill it with stuff to do and not just have this good looking but empty world.

    I'm also strongly swayed by the trailer, but why are people so quick to compare this to legendary games instead of, you know, Precursors or something?

    Can we not do this please? It's not like we all have to declare allegiance to game from each genre or anything.

    Shovelware? As far as I know they've only ever made Joe Danger and that was pretty highly rated.

    Criterion, EA and Kuju ex-staffers on the team so... yeah, well, two-thirds shovelware at most then.

    More details in RPS interview.

    Every player in No Man’s Sky will begin their life somewhere along the edge of a galaxy. Everything in the trailer takes place in a single solar system near the galaxy’s edge and, red grass aside, on Earth-like planets. “It helps to ground people and I think if we hadn’t shown that, people would go, ‘what the fuck?’” Sean Murray, lead developer on No Man’s Sky, is choosing his words carefully. “It’s quite weird to see a thing that isn’t a fish, in the water. And so we have grounded the trailer in a particular solar system that kind of makes sense for people.”
    Eases the fears a little bit that the procedural stuff will be overly familiar and get boring quiclkly.

    That preview does a much better job of explaining the game than the EG one, mostly due to the questions being asked.

    Well they wanted to something other than shovelware, Joe Danger 2 was a low-hanging fruit decision, which has given them the freedom to do this. Plus it's a chance to make Joe Danger what they really wanted. No Man's Sky is so ambitious for a team of their size, you just want them to succeed.

    When Joe Danger was at the EG Expo in Leeds a few years back, I think Sean Murray was demo-ing it. The vibe I got from him was that they want to make something fun to play. This was before the game had any real structure, and the score system needed refinement, and it was fun to play.

    So glad that they aren't doing Joe Danger 3, passion and talent needs to be challenged if it is to produce great work.

    Just thought I'd bump this before we get another insomaniac thread.

    So yeah, this game coming to PS4 first, others to follow no doubt blah blah.

    This game looks really promising. Need to hear about plots and goals etc next.

    @Gruff Yes that will be the challenge. Also how are these things procedurally generated? ON the fly? Or in advance? or? I have a feeling they still have a LOT of work...

    Can't imagine playing this on anything but a PC TBH.

    As wonderful as this game sounds, I'm very skeptical as to whether they can pull off such an ambitious and (seemingly) technologically ambitious game without there being a catch somewhere along the line.

    @Dirtbox That seed can be anything.... it doesn't have to be the same for everybody. I don't know where you got that weird idea TBH. Or is that the way the devs said it going to work in this game?

    The big question is... do they generate a big universe "on the fly" or is it done in advance and then stored on the disk. I guess it will be the second option, they don't have the CPU power to do it on the fly I would guess.

    Cloud servers would really solve that problem.
