Not Suitable for Children - Heavy (but hidden) Demonic Content
Played with my children, thought it would be a fun survival experience with limited violence. It gives that appearance, but it has a very dark "lore" (that is, the story behind the game). Shortly into the game I encountered a "Gek" building (specifically a monolith) that introduces the player to heavy demonic practices. These include demonic possesion, murder and suicide - rewarding the player for choosing their preferred suicide method. I was horrified at this non-disclosed content and glad my children were not present. After this point I did a google search of No Man's Sky Gek Lore to reveal the following:
"They are very religious, and their culture involves demonic practices, witchcraft, and sacrificial ceremony." and
"the Gek's fervent wish to enhance their knowledge about demons and witches"
Had I known this content was in the game I would not have purchased it as I was after a space exploration game for my children.
The main story anchors curiosity to 'the crimson eye' and that the player is being watched.. but it is not forthright about the source.
This is not suitable for children. It is heavily demonic in an underhanded way.
I have removed it from Steam - here's how..
Select "Steam Support"
Select "Games, Software, etc."
Select No Man's Sky
Select "I want to permanently remove this game from my account"
Select "Ok, remove the listed games from my account permanently"
Steam will then say The package No Man's Sky has been permanently removed from your account.
