Why No Man's Sky

No Man’s Sky is a game that by all rights should not exist- it’s a game of staggering scope and ambition, and it’s being made by a four man team. It’s the kind of game that not even full fledged AAA developers have the gall to tackle, so the fact that it exists, and looks so amazing, and is being developed by four guys, naturally makes people sit up and take notice. It also makes people wonder if there is a catch.

But there isn’t- in an interview with Kotaku, game creators Sean Murray and David Ream discussed their title, and its development.

The [E3] trailer, that’s real-time,” Ream said. “In order for that trailer to exist as it is we captured from real time. Everything in the game, that is the game functioning. In order to build that trailer, all the systems that we’ve been talking about have to exist otherwise it would be nothing. From the outside you go, ‘Wow, how can that be true?’ From the inside, in order to show anything it has to be true.”

“We did build prototypes,” Murray said. “We built prototypes for those creatures. On the fly I can change all those dinosaurs to be completely different. We come out and people say, ‘How can it be real?’ and it’s just a really weird question to be answering.”

No Man’s Sky looks amazing, and it will be made available on the PS4 and PC. Stay tuned for more coverage.
