August 9 is fast approaching, like a meteor shower set to rain down upon the gaming community – because as August 9 gets closer, so does No Man’s Sky. The hype associated with the upcoming release is comparable to that of Fallout 4, and GTA V even. When you consider the fact that it comes from an indie studio, that’s pretty damn incredible. Games like Minecraft and Pokémon Go show that anything is possible. In other words, we are on the verge of something that could revolutionize gaming forever.
Understandably, this is an exciting, intense moment for the gaming industry.
It’s good, then, that some people still find the time to have a laugh, and relax a little. Some such people have been messing around with Sean Murray’s group studio selfie, uploaded to Twitter back on July 7, to mark the date of No Man’s Sky finally going gold. Take a look. Some of these are absolutely hilarious.
Anyway, these were a blast to see and write about. Head over to the Reddit post to keep an eye on the shenanigans for yourself, they’re well worth a look.
