No Man's Sky is Very Very Chill

A post on the No Man’s Sky website paves the way for this week's launch of the new space game. It's due tomorrow on PS4 and on Friday for Windows, so Sean Murray tackles the topic of what you do in the game. He also provides links to old and new screenshots and gameplay videos from various sources. He also mentions a livestream of the game that's already concluded, but can still be viewed here. Here are some warnings about what the game is and isn't:

That means this maybe isn’t the game you *imagined* from those trailers. If you hoped for things like pvp multiplayer or city building, piloting freighters, or building civilisations… that isn’t what NMS is. Over time it might become some of those things through updates.

For instance, freighters and building bases *are* coming! Read about updates coming here.

At launch though, it’s an infinite procedural sci-fi-space-survival-sandbox unlike anything you have ever played before. If you decide to play it, you’ll see just how closely it plays to those trailers, and to our original vision. It’s a weird game, it’s a niche game and it’s a very very chill game.

This could all very well be, I just still have a hard time seeing the game part in it. Hopefully I'm wrong, as I'd very much like for this to be awesome. But...

Very very chill is code for "won't be fun unless you're blazed out of your skull" the last time I checked.

Watching the stream...I can see how it might not be for everyone, but I like what I see, so far.

There is so much over-hype considering it's the kind of game that won't appeal to most people, because of its slow pace and lack of story. It's basically a resource-mining grind em up, upgrade and repeat on the next of 5,000,000,000 planets. I've watched a few video streams and while it looks cool in places, it seems it would get pretty repetitive after a short while. I haven't seen anything surprising or awesome in the videos I've watched, just slight variations and colours of flora and fauna. A bit like Spore then..!

Think the main fault of this misperception is the E3 trailer, seriously, edited shots and action scenes for a "very very chill" game are maybe not the best idea.. You ever seen Minecraft advertise with its combat?
