No Man’s Sky Community Runs Funding Campaign For ‘Thank You’ Billboard
When No Man’s Sky launched a few years ago it was missing a very important part of an MMORPG, the multiplayer part. The game was also plagued by negative reviews, toxic players, hackers, and allegations of false advertising. Unsurprisingly, developer Hello Games got a lot of flak for their non-multiplayer MMORPG eventually forcing the devs to purge and temporarily shut down their subreddit page.
But, after three years and numerous fixes and updates, it seems that the game’s community is singing a different tune. The game’s community even started a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for a “Thank You” billboard near the Hello Games office in Guildford, UK. “Hello Games has put in a heroic effort to get NMS to where it is today. As a community on we'd like to express our thanks,” writes the community.
The funding goal was initially set at $1750 dollars but has now reached over $4,000 as of this writing. The funds will be used to print and install the billboard and buy the team lunch and beers. The remaining proceeds will be used to buy gaming consoles and games for disadvantaged and sick kids of the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation.
Hello Games founder Sean Murray expressed his gratitude on Twitter.
