From a rough start, to a galaxy of wonder. The joy of escape and discovery of NO MAN’S SKY is unrivaled. It will leave you wanting to own a starship and hit to the stars. To feel that joy of exploration in your own life. I crash landed on NO MAN’S SKY, and this is my take on How did it Feel.

It turns out I began studying an Interaction Design specialisation with the University of California San Diego just a month before the turn of the year.
