  • “No Man’s Sky is a game unlike any we’ve seen before: As a starship pilot, you’ll explore a universe so vast, its developers think explorers won’t set foot on 99 percent of its planets. That seems ridiculous, but Hello Games estimates No Man’s Sky has 18 quintillion planets. It has to estimate, because of course it didn’t craft them by hand — they’re all the result of algorithms, procedurally generating each one as it’s discovered.”
