Overview: No Man's Sky is a strange beast: an infinite, procedural galaxy filled with endless alien worlds. Art Director Grant Duncan will talk about how a tiny indie team at Hello Games has gone about creating the artwork behind No Man's Sky, from early concept to finalised art. Grant will talk about inspirations, pre-production and the complicated, rewarding (and sometimes messy) union between programmers and artists. Attendees will be presented with lots of pictures and a step-by-step walk-through of the No Man's Sky art pipeline.
