Hello, PlayStation.Blog! I’m Alex, from Hello Games. Hope you’re well! How’s your summer going? Ours? We’re kinda recovered from E3, where Sean showed off live No Man’s Sky gameplay for the first time. It has been a big relief that people seemed to like it. You can’t know just how scary it is to show a game as open-ended as No Man’s Sky live on a stage for an audience of millions.
A year ago today we first revealed our game called No Man’s Sky. These twelve months have been life changing for all of us at our little studio. Your response to what we’re making has been inspiring, affirming, and only sometimes totally terrifying. But in the best way :)
Hello, PlayStation.Blog! Let’s get right to it! We’re excited to announce that our game Joe Danger will be launching for PS Vita on September 2nd via PlayStation Store! And that’s not all! PlayStation Plus members will get it for FREE as part of their September batch of games.
One of the undisputed highlights of our E3 2014 media briefing was the moment when Hello Games’ visibly nervous Sean Murray clambered on stage to show off No Man’s Sky, his team’s remarkable open-universe, science fiction epic which will debut on PS4. As you’ll hopefully have ascertained in the press coverage since (and in Sean’s blog post), there’s extraordinary ambition on display here, especially given the size of the Hello team, and it was no surprise that it was arguably the buzz game of the show.
My name is Sean Murray, and I’m part of an independent studio called Hello Games. You might know us from a game called Joe Danger. That’s the only time I’ve been on the blog before. Sony was incredibly supportive of us back then, when we were just starting out as four friends, making our first game.
Would you be willing to answer a few brief questions about PlayStation.Blog?
