No Man's Sky's subreddit is trying to get Sean Murray to talk via cancer fundraising

No Man's Sky

To celebrate a lack of communication from Hello Games for a solid 90 days following the launch of No Man's Sky, the space game's subreddit is fundraising for Cancer Research in a bid to get Sean Murray's attention. What do you mean it makes no sense?

Instead of camping on a subreddit, play our list of great space games

The campaign, No Man's Sky's Journey to Stop Cancer, has already raised £340 of its £500 goal, and I wouldn't be surprised if it went way past that, considering the Reddit upvotes. You can also donate at that link. 

The plan is to raise some money so hopefully senpai notices them and finally explains why his game was not good.

If Sean Murray doesn't speak up by the 110th day - in around two weeks - they will murder some puppies (they won't actually murder some puppies). They will, however, turn the subreddit into a Sean Murray parody, "or something along those lines" - a quote which could easily lead to escalation, and puppy murder.

One redditor even said they will donate $400 to Cancer Research if Murray speaks up in the next two months, making it so Murray is essentially blocking their Cancer Research funding with his silence. Meanwhile, another compares Murray's silence to their father leaving them as a child.

Someone else has even gone as far as building a fully functional Flash game to satirise No Man's Sky. It's actually quite fun, but things are certainly taking a strange turn.

" It's all getting a bit weird."

That is an understatement for that subreddit.

They are essentially blackmailing there own deity. This might end in a very, very dark place.

What in the heck are you thinking?

They're not making it so he is blocking them.

They are literally holding money hostage while weaponizing charity.

This is not weird, this is utterly disgusting, and you seem to lack the spine to describe reality as it is.

One person there is doing that, while others are actually donating to charity. I can't condemn donating to charity, but the reasoning behind it certainly makes things muddy. I also tried to keep the tone light so it wasn't completely depressing. Cheers for the insult though!

Can you really say that only one person is participating in this while the others are just donating to charity? Do you think the charities would not accept those donations if they were not filtered through this reddit garbage?

I'm not saying there aren't others, and I personally don't agree with it, but this is a news post, not a Kirk McKeand opinion piece. I condemned it in my own way, by joking about puppy murder being next.
