Ok, I don't know much about megathreads, but when I saw this game revealed at the VGX my jaw nearly hit the floor.
EDIT: FOUND IT! Here is a link to the interview with the developer, too. 8)
I'm very old, and way back in the day I played a little game called Elite for an obscene number of hours, and No Man's Sky is what I know I, and probably everyone that played Elite, wanted that game to be. During the interview the dev commented that they're literally just a handful of guys working together using their own money that they've made off of their only other game, which the lead guy sold his house to pay for. They did mention that they were going to talk with one of the other devs at the VGX about how to do a kickstarter correctly, and if they do I'll be giving them my money... and offering my services as a tester.
I want to play this game!
