Here’s why No Man’s Sky developers tweeted “the game was a mistake”


Hello Games, a small indie studio comprising of all but 16 employees have been in the middle of a storm ever since it released its over-hyped (and over priced) indie sandbox game No Man’s Sky earlier this year.

It seems, controversy refuses to leave their side or perhaps, they want to keep it that way. Whatever, be the reasons, the internet erupted after Hello Games official twitter handled posted this message: “No Man’s Sky was a mistake“.

The media was quick to latch onto this and make it a story and headlines such as “No Man’s Sky developer tweets ‘game was a mistake'” were slapped across many major websites.

However, the developer denied that the tweet was intentional and blamed it on a ‘disgruntled employee’ and then more weird statements were made to other outlets such as Polygon.
