Really great article. I’m 20+ hours in and I’m finding that NMS is definitely my kind of weird. I love how it maintains a sense of mystery and wonder - but I can see that it definitely won’t be for everyone. It uses every trick in the book to convey a feeling to the player — from beautifully stylized sound and graphics to on-screen text exposition. It seems to know how to present just enough information to lead the player off on an extreme interstellar version of the countryside ramble.
