The Developers Of No Man's Sky Have A Surprise New Game

In case you think Hello Games hasn’t been working hard enough, given their multiple, massive and free updates to No Man’s Sky, tonight they’ve announced a new game, called The Last Campfire.

“The Last Campfire is an adventure, a story of a lost Ember trapped in a puzzling place, searching for meaning and a way home,” Sean Murray, Hello Games co-founder, said in a press release today.

“Together you will discover a beautiful wilderness filled with lost folk, strange creatures and mysterious ruins.”

It’s certainly adorable, and looks very different from the huge and expansive No Man’s Sky. Murray went on to say that they’re calling this a “Hello Games short,” kinda like a Pixar Short.

“Like Pixar shorts it’s a way to foster creativity and new voices in the studio,” he said. “We started by making Joe Danger, before No Man’s Sky, and we want to pay forward our success to give others the opportunity to do the same.”

There’s no information on platforms yet or a release date, but you can wishlist the game on Steam if you want. I can’t wait to get my grubby hands all over it.


    The dude in this game looks like a short, stumpy version of the Journey character. In any case, it's definitely my type of game. Will definitely look into this when it's released.

    Platforms to be announced, apparently. Undoubtedly it'll include Switch. Every studio and their dog are releasing Switch games these days.

    Yeah, I thought it was a Journey-child.

    Call me savage, but shouldn't they finish developing their first game before moving to the next?

      I think it's pretty fair to say they did..

      In fact, I don't think I've ever seen a developer support a game as much after release without it being financed via subscription, microtransactions, loot boxes or DLC.

      They copped a lot of shit at launch for releasing a title which came in way under expectations raised by the marketing - but I think it's fair to say they earned their credibility back in the end.

        And yet it still doesn't feel like it is worth the cost of entry. I agree though they've worked their asses off. If No Man's Sky was cheaper everyone would have been way more forgiving. It wouldn't surprise me if Sony had pressured them to up the price on that initial exclusive deal they had. But then again who knows?

        Hm, I'm just skeptical as they still haven't caught up to what was originally promised at launch years ago.
