There was a time when being a fan of No Man’s Sky was pretty unpleasant. Harsh, and at many times aggressive, comment would be directed at you if you said you liked the game. And Hello Games disappeared from view, and gave absolutely no support to the fans who stayed with them. And I can understand why they did that. Better to just let the storm blow over, and rebuild from the remains.
But Hello Games hadn’t run away (they could have just taken the money and run - but they didn’t). They’d regrouped, and determined to make the game of their vision, regardless of what the critics said. And a year on, it’s starting to become true. The original vision of the game is emerging, And it’s really good.
But during the hostile period, Hello Games retreated to a position where they didn’t talk to anybody. They adopted a bunker mentality - they hunkered down, and kept silent.
The situation that required that no longer exists - particularly here in CSD. HG, this is your own fanbase. We’re here because we like your game, and we like you.
And we would like you to start talking to us. Not to Reddit, or Steam, or GoG. But to the community you created, here at CSD.
How does that sound? Communicate with the community you created?
