No Man’s Sky Steals The Show At The VGX Awards
The VGX Awards, as expected, were just as awkward and idiotic as every other year, despite Spike TV going through lengths to try and reboot the show in order to make it more appealing to gamers. That didn’t happen, but thankfully one game made the entire show worthwhile.
From the developers who created Joe Danger comes No Man’s Sky, a procedurally generated space sim and exploration title that really looks like nothing I’ve ever played before. The reveal trailer does a good job of explaining that nothing is created beforehand, meaning that all your journey’s will fell different from one another, planet to plant and star system to star system.

But what type of game is it? Well, as the trailer shows, players can transfer from exploring the depths of the ocean on one planet to a dogfight in space in a mater of seconds. Hello Games describes the experiences and an exploration title, but that doesn’t mean you won’t be engaging enemies and perhaps other players in the stars. The world itself will be persistently online, making No Man’s Sky closer to an MMO than single-player experience.
But that’s not even the most impressive news. No Man’s Sky is being developer by four people. That’s right, four. Take a look at it again and try to understand how.
There’s no release date yet, but I’m pretty sure I’m not alone in saying that No Man’s Sky looks like one of the next-generation experiences we’ve been waiting for.
