I’m sure all of you have heard of ChatGPT by now. I decided to ask it some questions about No Man’s Sky and Waking Titan. Feel free to do the same and post the responses you get here.
Here is some of my first responses, I was surprised it knew so much about the ARG.
Me: What can you tell me about the videogame No Man’s Sky?
ChatGPT: No Man’s Sky is an action-adventure survival video game developed and published by the British studio Hello Games. It was released for PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Windows in August 2016 and later for Xbox One in July 2018. The game is set in an open-world environment, where players explore a procedurally generated universe with over 18 quintillion planets, each with their own unique landscapes, flora and fauna, and discover new species.
In No Man’s Sky, players assume the role of a player-created character who wakes up on a strange planet, and must gather resources, build structures, and repair their damaged ship in order to progress. Players can fly between planets and solar systems using their spacecraft, and can discover and name new species of plants and animals. They can also interact with alien species, trade resources and upgrade their equipment.
The game received mixed reviews upon release, with some praising its ambitious concept and the size of the universe, while others criticized its lack of content and technical issues. Nevertheless, the game has a dedicated fanbase and several updates have been released, adding new features, gameplay and fixing issues, such as the Beyond update in 2019, which added VR support, multiplayer, and expanded the game’s narrative.
No Man’s Sky has been described as a “space exploration” game, with players able to fly seamlessly from the surface of a planet to another planet or moon, in an almost limitless procedurally generated universe, players can engage in activities such as combat with alien species, or the trading of resources. The game has been compared to the likes of Elite Dangerous and Eve Online.
Me: What can you tell me about the Alternate Reality Game “Waking Titan”?
ChatGPT: Waking Titan is an alternate reality game (ARG) that was launched in 2017 by the creators of the game “No Man’s Sky”. The game was designed to be a mystery and puzzle-solving experience that takes place across multiple platforms and mediums, including the internet, social media, and real-world locations.
The game’s story centers around a mysterious organization called the “Atlas Foundation,” which is said to be conducting a secret research project known as “Waking Titan.” Players were given clues and puzzles to solve, which led them to various websites, phone numbers, and physical locations. The players were encouraged to work together to solve the puzzles and uncover the mystery of Waking Titan.
The game was designed as a promotion for the game No Man’s Sky and its expansions, but it also had a narrative of its own. The game was designed to be a long-term event, and it ran for several months, with new clues and puzzles being released periodically. The game was concluded with the release of the “Atlas Rises” update for No Man’s Sky.
Waking Titan was well-received by players and praised for its complexity and the level of engagement it required from players.
