No Man’s Sky is an action adventure and survival video game developed and published by Hello Games. No Man’s Sky is a huge game, with over 18 quintillion planets. But well, Reddit user “daymeeuhn” got the game early and he posted some videos on Dailymotion too – but they were taken down.
However, the man behind No Man’s Sky and Hello Games, Sean Murray, expressed his feelings through a tweet. Sean Murray didn’t seem happy about the latest leaked videos about No Man’s Sky. Well, that is expected. The developers worked hard on the game and someone spoiling all the things before the official release date is indeed not going to make them happy.
After reading the tweets and seeing the response of the developers, daymeeuhn exposed how he feels about the whole situation.
“That’s it from me video-wise. Hello Games and Sean don’t like it, it’s giving me a headache dealing with the fallout, I don’t want to be the guy that spoiled all this cool shit, and I’m just leaving it at that! But for now, I’m going to just play the game, keep to myself and enjoy it.”
Daymeeuhn is feeling bad about the whole situation. It seems like he understands the hard work the developers did to make No Man’s Sky an enjoyable game and he did not intend to spoil everything.
“I’m only a couple hours in, barely touched a few planets and already I’ve had many F*** YEAH moments. In the one hand, I’d love to share those with you – but in the other hand, Sean is right… why not just wait and experience them first hand? I dunno.”
Daymeeuhn feels guilty about it. He did leak the videos in the first place but it seems like he knows that what he’s doing is not right. In an interview with Kotaku, daymeeuhn said:
“I expected Sean to tweet negatively about it because, let’s face it, it’s his job to… But I’ll admit, after watching so many of his interviews and knowing how cool of a guy he seems, it did make me feel a bit guilty. It wasn’t the sole reason for my decision, but it was certainly a factor.”
But still, daymeeuhn will post some first impressions about No Man’s Sky and he says that he will answer people’s questions too.
“I will do a text-only post with first impressions once I’m much further in, and yes I will Spoiler tag it and answer ANY questions people want to ask, but there will be no screenshots or videos. Text only from here on out, my friends. It’s a compromise respectful to the boundaries in place, and I’m just going to accept it.”
So there you have it, guys. It seems like daymeeuhn is going to respect the developer’s emotions by not posting any more videos or pictures about No Man’s Sky. But he definitely seems to be enjoying the game. The game is coming pretty soon, so if you want to enjoy the game with all the surprises, we suggest that you wait for the official release.
