|The No Man's Sky ARG - an ARG that began with 16 mysterious cassette tapes.|
Note: This page is under construction - more information is still being added!
The No Man's Sky ARG was created by Hello Games. It began with 16 cassette tapes being mailed to prominent individuals in the No Man's Sky online community. At this time, it is unclear what these cassette tapes are leading to. It is speculated that when the mystery of the tapes is solved, a new update for No Man's Sky will be announced.
This ARG is currently being solved by the No Man's Sky community: in particular, the No Man's Sky subreddit. Most of the information on this page has been compiled from stickied posts.
Beginning on June 1, 2017, moderators of the No Man's Sky subreddit started to receive cassette tapes in the mail. Each cassette tape was labelled with a number out of 16.
Here is a summary table, showing each tape's number, current status, and owner:
|Tape Number||Tape Owner||Tape Status|
|4||/u/Tony-Towers||Played, not yet uploaded|
|6||/u/BaRKy1911||Not yet played|
|10||/u/swampthing3000||Not yet played|
Tapes 3, 7, and 12
The audio of tapes 3, 7, and 12 are identical. The B-side consists entirely of garbled noise. When running the noise through a spectrogram, a sequence of characters can be clearly seen:
Running this ciphertext through ROT13 and then decoding the resulting hex yields the following string:
- No Man's Sky Subreddit
- Cassette ARG Megathread
- Google Drive folder (includes recordings and spectrographs)
This page is a work in progress, and will be updated as new developments emerge.
