“No Man’s Sky” continues its nose-dive with the ambitious space exploration game spiraling despite pre-hype that it would be something worth playing. But apparently, Hello Games hyped the game so much that it disappointed when it officially came out.

The numbers alone don’t lie. From 212,620 players playing “No Man’s Sky”, the numbers have dropped dramatically to 15,700 after two weeks per reports by PC Invasion. The game made its official debut on Aug. 12, 2016.

Apparently “No Man’s Sky” disappointed a lot in various departments. That included offering player unique planets, creatures, and items which many pointed out as recurring. In short, the much hyped 18 quintillion planets ended up pretty much identical to the dismay of players.

Bugs still persist

Even before the big debut of “No Man’s Sky” last Aug. 12, leaked copies were already out. Recall that some users had already hinted of performance issues and the fact that one player was able to reach the center of the universe fast.

Hello games came forward to explain all that, using a day one patch for “No Man’s Sky” to address the shortcomings. Unfortunately, that failed to change its fortunes and players are pretty much upset.

Money back guarantee

With plenty of gamers disappointed with “No Man’s Sky” gameplay and performance, some have gone as far as resorting to refunds. Originally, there were restrictions meaning refunds would be accommodated though it would depend on certain factors such as the ones who played the game for less than two hours.

Screen Rant notes that all those have been pulled back with playing hours on “No Man’s Sky” no longer relevant. Procedures for applying for a refund are documented at this forum on Reddit.

“No Man’s Sky” has failed to hit it off with gamers though it may not necessarily be the last for the ambitious game. Hello Games can still try to fix things up to make it cool again.

With only 15,700 players remaining, Hello Games may have to work double time if they want to save whatever is left for the game.
