O H . MY. G O D...........


It was..... amazing. I don't know if it was the atmosphere, the music, or the dank...but it was the most beautiful sight my gaze had ever come upon in a video game. I actually felt a tear actually silently fall down my cheek. I was....home. That night I walked, explored, and quested to my hearts content. Eventually, while relaxing to the beautiful music, I slowly drifted off to sleep...I awoke the next morning feeling more refreshing and at peace with the world than I ever have in my entire life. For the next six months I did nothing but wake and bake and immediately head into the spellbinding world of no mans sky. That was how the majority of 2016 was spent for me and I don't for a second regret it. I implore anyone reading this who hasn't picked up this wonderful game, please, drive to your local Gamestop and pick a copy of this amazing journey today.

at the end of Arthur C Clarke's "The City and the Stars" the protagonist takes off into space to see if there's anything there, and he spends like two chapters frantically searching all the planets near the center of the universe for any signs of life, only to find them full of weird random patterns and without any seeming purpose, and eventually he gives up in defeat and that's basically the end of the book. What I'm saying is that No Mans Sky is an avant-garde piece aobut the meaningless search for fulfilment in a random godless universe and is basically an adaptation of The City and the stars. that's cool. peace

You can explore vague analogies to classic sci-fi works in No Man's Sky

The team programmed some of the physics for aesthetic reasons. For instance, Duncan insisted on permitting moons to orbit closer to their planets than Newtonian physics would allow. When he desired the possibility of green skies, the team had to redesign the periodic table to create atmospheric particles that would diffract light at just the right wavelength.

photons are diffracted by objects of cpmparable size to their wavelengths my good sir. scattering is the term for photons affected by particles smaller than the wavelength of the em emission, ie, the atoms and molecules that make up air. thanks for reading
