No Man’s Sky was released recently and people have been scampering about in the universe travelling from one place to another covering massive distances while at it. According to a recent revelation Steam has added a warning to the page that features this game. It stated that the usual refund policy on Steam applies to No Man’s Sky as well.
The company further added that there are no special exemptions available at this point. Earlier, a Reddit post started claiming that Steam was overlooking its standard refund policy in favour of No Man’s Sky. It necessarily meant that gamers could get back their money after playing the game for 70 hours.
Steam’s standard refund policy suggests that refunds are offered for games that have been played for a couple of hours and within 14 days of purchase. The post encouraged a lot of unhappy players and they started complaining about false advertising and dismal performance.
Some users even declared that they had received refunds after playing for more than two hours. Ever since No Man’s Sky release on PC and PS4 on 12th August, it has been facing some heat. It was a majorly hyped space-exploration game, but a lot of players have claimed that there are various promised features that were ultimately not delivered.
The game provides a complete open-universe and you can explore an almost infinite number of planets. Meanwhile players have complained that features like interaction with other players have not been introduced.
Many others talked about the game crashing repeatedly. In general some players are pretty disappointed about this title. A Steam reviewer went through 40 hours of gameplay hoping that the game will improve, but sadly it never did.
Some users have claimed that they received refunds from PlayStation Online Store, belonging to Sony. However the shop policy suggests that gamers will get a refund if they haven’t downloaded the game yet. The game is available for £39.99 on Steam and £49.99 on the PlayStation Store.
Meanwhile four developers from Melbourne released No Mario’s Sky. It seems like the strangest mix-tape in the gaming industry and serves as an indie homage. The game has been developed by Max Cahill, Sam Izzo, Ben Porter and Alex Mc.
According to the description the game features faithful physics, original music, an endless universe, 1000s of Goombas and social commentary regarding interplanetary colonialism. It includes a radical spaceship as well.
In other news, Forbes pointed out that No Man’s Sky has a plot or more of lore. Although most players are looking for better tools, bigger ships, and crazier wildlife, the game does offer lore as well. In some cases the game will provide you some hints and tips to follow while other stories will freely talk about their tale.
In some cases, you need to comprehend an alien language to fully uncover the story. There are three different types of mysteries in No Man’s Sky. It deals with the history of the various alien races, stories revolving the abandoned buildings and of course, Atlas.
When it comes to the races, most of you already know that Korvax is the scientists, Gek are traders and the Vy’keenare warriors. However each of them has lengthy histories unfolded through 30-35 passages. These passages are scattered around plaques and alien monuments found in every world in the system.
On seeing the Gek you’ll probably think they are a happy frog people who prefer trading. In reality they are slavers and bloodthirsty world conquerors. A passage explained that all who hear their words know about their strength.
