I quit my job at EA, where I worked on Burnout, sold my house and started an indie games studio with three friends. Tomorrow we release our next game. AMA!
Hello Reddit! I’m Sean Murray, and I’m one part of a small indie dev called Hello Games.
I joined the industry straight out of Uni, worked for three years, became a technical director, lost my way, quit and made a game with my friends. That was Joe Danger. Tomorrow we're releasing our next game called No Man's Sky.

It's a chill sci-fi game.
I can’t really describe in words what today feels like... but let's go with weird and terrifying.
My specialist subjects are programming, indie development, working at EA, not sleeping, maths, hype-trains, drinking tea and stressing about your game releasing... Ask Me Anything!
EDIT! Thank you everyone! I'm gonna do another half hour and then try to get some sleep :)
EDIT! Leaving now because people pointed out we might overtake Obama as the most popular AMA. If that happens someone might start to worry that the hype has gone too far ¯\(シ)/¯ - thank you all so much! Hope you enjoy the game, I'm going to try to sneak off into anonymity now
