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.

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:
