No Man’s Sky Developer: Interview
The Founder of Hello Games is Sean Murray. Hello Games is a response for many games including the game, ‘No Man’s Sky’.
The company hasn’t released virtual reality support for ‘No Man’s Sky’ yet, but that could change as Sean Murray thinks virtual reality “would be a really good fit” for his game.
Murray said, “I think VR in general is incredibly exciting. I would say I’m a believer. I have this optimism about it. I really hope everyone gets it right.”
He thinks that virtual reality is an awesome technology that presents an “amazing opportunity”, but he thinks that VR still needs to connect with a really cool app to be taken to another level. Murray said, “I have definitely decided that I’m going to own a VR headset and I’m going to show my friends… and I’m going to try and convince them to buy one.” He added that he hopes “it finds that killer app” so “everyone ends up needing one” and virtual reality “doesn’t become novelty or gimmicky.”
In regards to the way No Man’s Sky could utilize PlayStation VR or other headsets, Murray said, “There’s this huge opportunity for playing a game normally but then also being able to have those really intense moments within a game, a mixture of both.”
He even spoke of how this could work with his soon to be released sci-fi game. He said, “If it was No Man’s Sky—if such a thing existed—being able to find a planet if you really loved and then be able to see it in [VR]. I think something like that would be incredibly cool.”
