No Man's Sky
Hello Games / 65daysofstatic – 2016
In »No Man's Sky«, players explore a vast, almost infinite universe. Starting from one of more than 18 trillion planets, the player’s first assignment is to collect the necessary materials to repair the spaceship and set out into space.
The ultimate goal is to reach the center of the galaxy. Along the way, players can search for rare elements, ruins, and alien artifacts; they can catalog animal and plant life, and exchange items and resources with various aliens inhabiting the universe. They can also commit piracy by destroying other ships.
The developers drew inspiration from well-known science fiction authors such as Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clark, and Douglas Adams.
