ABOUT THIS GAME
Inspired by the adventure and imagination we love from classic science-fiction, No Man’s Sky presents you with a galaxy to explore, filled with unique planets and lifeforms, constant danger and action.
In No Man’s Sky, every star is the light of a distant sun, each orbited by planets filled with life, and you can go to any of them you choose. Fly smoothly from deep space to planetary surfaces, with no loading screens, and no limits. In this infinite procedurally generated universe, you’ll discover places and creatures that no other players have seen before – and perhaps never will again.

About Hello Games
Hello Games was founded in 2009 by a band of four friends who had climbed their way to the top of the pile at great developers like Criterion, Sumo, Kuju, EA and Climax. They decided to set forth on a brave journey of discovery and adventure to bring some new, funky, colourful pixels to the world.
Since then they have been joined by some more talented people from around the globe, mostly based in Guildford, United Kingdom. Together they are just trying to unleash the charm and creativity that has been stopping them from sleeping at night. Learn more about Hello Games at www.hellogames.org
