Hello PlayStation Blog, I’m Sean Murray, I’m a programmer working on No Man’s Sky with a group of friends, here at Hello Games.
We’ve just come back from Vegas, where the whole team went to Playstation Experience, The Game Awards (and then the Grand Canyon for biome research).
This has been a very different kind of year for us. This time last year I was worried that no one would watch our reveal trailer, and now I just worry if we can live up to some people’s excitement. So many people have been so lovely and supportive. Personally I’m going to disappear in 2015, probably until the game is out. I just want to focus on programming, which I definitely prefer to talking to press, which I’ve done a lot this month.
If you want to know more about the game, there’s lots of new No Man’s Sky videos to watch. We showed No Man’s Sky off at The Game Awards. Then we showed at PlayStation Experience, and finally we threw a concert with the band 65daysofstatic, who will be doing our soundtrack.
Also this month we are on the cover of Game Informer, which was a huge moment for me (it’s a first for an indie game). They are doing lots of video features, and people say the quickfire question one is good. I haven’t actually watched any of these, but I saw some animated gifs of my face whilst browsing NeoGAF, so that was enough for me. :(
Hopefully the vids are ok. :)
It’s been an incredible year. We’re going to focus on finishing No Man’s Sky, but I want you to know how much we’ve valued each message you’ve sent us. Thank you. It means a lot to me and the team.
Have a super happy Christmas and New Year. Here’s to 2015, the year No Man’s Sky comes out.
Love you guys,
