Space Games

Setting oftentimes gives any piece of media, be it books, movies, shows, or games, its boundaries. When setting a game in space, those boundaries must be masked in other ways so that the player still feels the freedom and choice that space provides. It hasn’t been until recently that games have been able to convey this, with titles such as EVE Online and (after heavy updates) No Man’s Sky delivering on a sense of presence and exploration in space.
