No Man’s Sky is an adventure survival video game developed and published by the indie studio Hello Games in 2016 for PlayStation 4, Microsoft Windows and Mac OS.
No Man’s Sky for Macbook and iMac is a first-person, open world survival game. Players take the role of a planetary explorer in an uncharted universe. They are equipped with a survival spacesuit with a jetpack, a multitool that can be used to scan, mine and collect resources as well as to attack or defend oneself from creatures and other entities while on a planet; and a spacecraft that allows them to land and take-off from planets and travel between them and engage in combat with other space-faring vessels. With this equipment, the player is then free to engage in any of the four principal activities offered by the game: exploration, survival, combat, and trading
No Man’s Sky For Macbook and iMac’s gameplay is built on four pillars—exploration, survival, combat and trading—in which players are free to perform within the entirety of a procedurally generated deterministic open universe, which includes over 18 quintillion (1.8×1019) planets, many with their own set of flora and fauna. By exploring, players gain information about the planets that they can submit to The Atlas, a universal database that can be shared with other players of the game. Players get compensated in currency every time new information is uploaded to The Atlas. Players also gain materials and blueprints to upgrade their character’s equipment and purchase a variety of starships, allowing them to travel deeper into the center of the universe, survive on planets with hostile environments, interact in friendly or hostile manners to computer-controlled space-faring factions, or trade with other ships.
In No Man’s Sky for Macbook and iMac the player’s ability to explore planets is only limited by the range of the hyperspace jump engines of their current spacecraft and how much fuel that the craft presently carries. The player will be able to view a galactic map to plot courses between systems, which will be updated as other players upload their findings to the Atlas. There will exist numerous features in the space between planets, including ships and fleets belonging to various factions which may be hostile to the player or which the player may wish to engage in space combat. The player’s actions will influence how the faction treats them in future encounters; for example by helping a faction win a space battle against a rival one earlier, they may in turn help protect the players from a different faction later. The player can attempt communication with non-player characters (NPC) from these factions using a dialog tree interface, but this will require them to learn the aliens’ language, which will be a simple word-for-word translation, leaving the player to wildly guess at the start. By frequent communications with that faction, as well as finding monoliths scattered on planets that act as Rosetta stones, the player can better understand these languages, and can gain favour from the NPC and its faction for trading and combat. There will also be various space bases where the player can engage in trading of resources and goods in a free market system; one such base will exist in every planetary system so that players will always have the ability to buy fuel to make hyperspace jumps to other systems. The player will be able to use resources they have collected to craft new goods, though they will be required to determine the recipes for these on their own or to purchase from vendors. This can enable players to collect rare elements found in a remote part of the universe and craft them to make highly desirable goods that they can sell. Such stations will also sell new equipment to the player with rotating stock.
