No Man’s Sky creator Sean Murray wrote a very touching message and included it with every Australian review copy.

No Man’s Sky review copies went out relatively late, prompting many outlets to post impressions instead today.

Australian reviewers, however, got a little something extra with their copies: a note from Sean Murray that reads like a preface you might find in a book. Murray recounts a memory of his childhood, growing up in Australia, watching the stars in the sky and feeling overwhelmed.

In the heartfelt and incredibly honest letter, Murray references how No Man’s Sky may have generated massive amounts of hype, some of which it might not live up to, but hopes that some people will feel transported into the cover of a sci-fi book.
