If You Don’t Like No Man’s Sky, Hello Games is Fine With It
No Man’s Sky is now available on PC and PlayStation 4. It is the kind of game that won’t appeal to everyone’s taste but than again, which game does? Still, according to Hello Games, if you don’t like No Man’s Sky than it is OK.
With our game, often you’re not led to an objective. The game doesn’t hold your hand. And some people will like that. I’ve had people tell me, “I like that the game was treating me as intelligent,” but then what I think they’re saying is: “But I don’t think gamers will be able to deal with that.”
I’m not saying any gamers are wrong, but I am totally okay with doing something different, and I will be totally okay with some people not liking this. Over the five years of developing No Man’s Sky, I’ve made my peace with that.
No Man’s Sky is not only getting mixed reviews but it has been at the center of controversy for a long time now. First, there was a law suit over the use of the term “Sky.” Later on, the game was accused of copy pasting Destiny’s UI which I have to say does indeed seem to be the case.
And now, Sean Murray is being really shady whenever asked about the game’s multiplayer components. In fact, Hello Games tried to hide MP aspect by putting stickers on the retail boxes.
Overall No Man’s Sky is a decent game but it seems it was developed by the wong studio. Such a great concept available to a better studio and it may have handled it better.
