man i doubt any gaming controvery will ever top no man’s sky
like it had this absolutely massive marketing campaign, had huge backing from sony, sean murray even had televised appearances on american talk shows to show off his revolutionary new game and to talk about features in the game
and then the game came out and it was all fake. everything. every single screenshot, piece of footage, every single promised feature was all a lie. none of that was in the game.
not even fucking multiplayer.
they spent so much time in the marketing talking about the multiplayer and how every player was part of an interconnected universe and that, though unlikely due to the sheer size of the universe, players would be able to meet and interact with one-another
and then in less than a week two players “found” each other and it turned out the multiplayer was completely fake. there was no multiplayer. none of it was real.
everyone involved with the game, at least all of the most publicly recognizable people involved, fucking vanished
and the office hello games was using was abandoned
nobody knows where hello games went or where sean murray is
a small team of indie developers sold the gaming community a lie, tricked one of the biggest multimedia companies in the world in to backing them, and then vanished
nothing will ever top that. nothing will ever top hello games exploiting the hype and preorder culture surrounding video games for a profit and then running off with the money. i fucking dare the industry to top that.
