You’re in a used book store, lurking in the fantasy and sci-fi section, rummaging through a box of old novels.
You see a fat tome with a flea-bitten cover featuring a garish technicolor vista of a strange new world, a grandiose title. On the cover, the artwork speaks of multiple moons, distant purple mountains, alien botany. In an instant, you understand that you will buy this book and, for the next few days, its mysteries will be a rapture to you.
That’s the feeling the developers at Hello Games are aiming for, with its new game No Man’s Sky, revealed at the weekend with a first trailer. Its otherworldly colors, the slightly odd title and the focus on interplanetary exploration all speak of Asimov-esque tundras stretching into the distance. But this trailer poses as many questions as it answers.
Final Fantasy IX.
I feel like this game is so under appreciated. It’s so pretty, though and the story is so good. I really like this game.
(Aside from trancing when I’m just about at a boss and it’s the last hit in a fight before the battle is over. That just annoys me).
