No Man's Sky has gotten a ridiculous amount of attention for an indie title. One of the creators was recently on an episode of The Late Show discussing the game with Colbert and on the front page we've got a cool new video showing off some of the unique properties of various procedurally generated planets.

Looks interesting, but I'm waiting to see how much actual "game" there is here.  I imagine that just flying around exploring planets would wear thin after a while.

I'm with Gratch from Oct of last year.  Looks fine but need to get an idea of the gameplay elements before committing to buying it.

There are a lot of previews linked here that should give a pretty good idea of how the game plays.

I am super excited for this.  Iíve been clamoring for a space-based game where exploration is the focus, not combat.  I cannot wait to travel from planet to planet, cataloging lifeforms and discovering what makes each planet unique.  If I never fired a weapon once I would be in gaming heaven.  The only item I wish they had was some kind of data pad that you can look at and read more about the stuff you found later sort of like the Destiny grimoire.   I can see myself spending days just on one planet.  Unfortunately, it wonít take long for people to start complaining how bored they are and that there is nothing to do.  That would be a shame because it would probably discourage further development into game styles like this.

I've read that there's an in-game encyclopedia that catalogues everything you discover, but I've never seen any screenshots or video of how detailed it is.

Thanks Eddie.  That would be exactly what Iím looking for.  In all my searching I havenít come across any mention of this.  I will see what I can find out.

This is where I got the information about the in-game encyclopedia.  I don't know where the poster got the information, but the rest of the post is accurate.

Rumor mill has it that the game may be delayed to July/August.  Nothing confirmed but it's all over the various sites today.
