Back in June, we covered a heart-warming story out of the No Man’s Sky community, as player sought to raise money on a GoFundMe specifically to install a billboard thanking Hello Games for the game and directing players to the subreddit. The initial goal was for $1750 to run a two-week billboard in Guildford, UK, and when significantly more was raised by the community, organizers made the call to donate the rest to the Westmead children’s hospital. (They’re buying PS4s for the teenager ward in the hostpital, so it’s even gaming-related!)
Anyhow, the original plan – to put up the billboard in Guildford – also came to fruition last week.
I’m not crying, you’re crying. What a great turn-around story for a company once taken to task for consumer deception and barraged with death threats. Then again, this is a weird community; it’s currently obsessed with sitting in chairs. Maybe these folks fit right into the greater MMO world after all.
