I'm pretty intrigued with the upcoming title No Man's Sky. It's difficult to deny that it shares a lot of the adventuring elements of SC2 and it definitely strikes me as a modern successor. I wish there were more games about cosmic exploration that were this beautiful and epic.
No Man's Sky has obvious gameplay differences like first person perspective, limited character interaction and a plot that isn't directly driven by dialog and events, but this game has received a lot of press over the enormous scale of its procedurally generated universe and bountiful gameplay possibilities. I would love to see this level of endless exploration, variety and mystery in Star Control.
It's still a few months away, but what do dedicated Star Control fans think about it? What influences could Stardock take from it?
