I only have about 18 hours into it so far, but I know No Man’s Sky is an amazing game when I keep stopping to take photographs in the game, even when it’s not part of a mission.
My character’s backstory so far is that he’s from a toxic planet covered in smog, so he’s never seen the stars or snow before. He became an explorer because it was as good a story as any for why he left his home planet. He’s become a photographer because it gives him a reason to keep flying from planet to planet. He’s especially fond of taking photos of the landscape at night, since this is the first time he’s seeing the stars.
