If Star Citizen had me excited, this one has caused a full on erection.
No Man’s Sky is a newly announced, procedurally generated game. You fly from planet to planet to collect resources, upgrade yourself and your ship, maybe work with other players and maybe not. Every planet different, every one generated on the fly.
Rock Paper Shotgun has a preview here (and be sure to watch the video). I nearly lost it with joy when they mentioned that it could be the first game created without a skybox, which seems like a silly thing but good lord is that a fascinating possibility.
Now if only I could get my money back out of Star Citizen to throw it wantonly at this…
