No Man’s Sky Developers Experimenting With Virtual Reality

on April 3, 2014 8:55 PM

After impressing everyone at the VGX with No Man’s Sky, Hello Games was hit by a string of bad luck that caused their offices to be flooded twice. Finally things seem to be looking up: today they received their Oculus Rift headsets and immediately started experimenting, as they mentioned on Twitter:

Received our new VR headsets today! So excite! Putting gaming laptop into backpack, with headset attached, so we can run about WIRELESSLY.

Problem! There are less steps in the stairs in this VR demo, than there are in our office. Will probably be fine.

Below you can also see three Vine videos showing the tests, and I’m quite sure I’m not the only one that feels that No Man’s Sky would be just the perfect killer application for virtual reality.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
