Let’s briefly marvel at No Man Sky’s gorgeous retro-future concept art

Back in the 50s, before people had any idea that space was lifeless and blank, sci-fi was marked by fascinating illustrations of exotic alien planets and clunky metal spaceships. That is what I’m reminded of when looking at No Man Sky’s beautiful, utopian, retro-future concept art, which Edge was kind enough to share. Look closely and you’ll see dinosaurs strolling the coast, nodular space domes nestled in a cliff, and ring worlds in the horizon. If the game’s procedurally generated engine manages to live up to this, anyone with an inkling of nostalgia for the space race is in for a hell of a treat.
