No Man's Sky
Designer: Sean Murray at Hello Games
A sci-fi game exploring an endless universe
No Man's Sky is a science-fiction-based videogame about exploration and survival in an infinite procedurally generated galaxy. The aim is to ensure that players experience the sense of wonder captured by classic science-fiction stories - and to ensure that there are things in the galaxy of 18,446,744,073,709,551,616 planets that not even the developers are aware of. This scope is made possible by a unique engine, developed in-house. Using procedural generation, the engine uses the computational power of next-generation consoles and PCs to generate terrain as the player explores.
