We’ve had fourth wall breaks in this ARG before. Heck, they had to connect Waking Titan to No Man’s Sky originally with an in-game live drop. Then W/ARE talked about No Man’s Sky as being on their platform. Now Simon’s brother is just a regular player of the game and Emily talks about NMS like it’s just another videogame.
So how is WT the origin story of NMS like Sean Murray said last year? If the game already exists and is refered to by the characters of the ARG, how are they a part of its origin?!
Of course, it is still possible that NMS is connected to Emily’s processes somehow, but she talks about it like its just a video game, not the “dream” she is having that PDF files alluded to. Emily even renamed a planet in this recent live drop, so she has direct control over it, how can it be a dream she is having or had in the past?
I just don’t get it, the narrative of how No Man’s Sky is connected to this ARG is all over the place. Can anyone help me figure this out?
