The procedural mystery of No Man's Sky is obviously contributes to our collective hype for the game, but there's something a little more subtle, beneath the surface.
No Man's Sky truly looks alien. It achieves that through its unique art style, which references old science fiction novels and, particularly, their covers. This new video explores that art.
I particularly enjoyed the discussion of the life forms you'll be finding in No Man's Sky. The fact that so much of this is procedurally generated is interesting, particularly in terms of how that procedure is designed.
Yes, I am very excited for this video game.
