What is No Man's Sky?
No Man's Sky is a procedurally generated open universe game.
Players take the role of a planetary explorer with a spacecraft, allowing them to explore the surface of numerous planets and interact with the flora and fauna, and take to space, engaging in combat with hostile forces and travel to other worlds. Planets and other features of this universe are procedurally generated.
The game has online features that allow players to share details of planets they have visited with other online players, and allows players to visit these planets through a large galactic map once they have upgraded their ship for hyperdrive capabilities.

Said about No Man's Sky as an alternative
Departing from the Terraria 2D / sidescrolling, NMS is 1st-Person, 3D, beautifully-coloured, richly-populated, 60s-style SciFi in all its glory, in a game MAINLY about Exploration.. but with a Storyline to follow, the ability to engage in combat, and a crafting tree which also includes BASE BUILDING and VEHICULAR DRIVING. Significant Updates since its first announcement have made it GREAT again!
You can explore all the planets you want and the concept is very similar to Space Engine, albeit unrealistic (no gas giants, no tidally locked planets etc. it's more "fantasy" than Space Engine).
Nomansky is simillar to starbound but instead is 3D with 18 quintilion planets, and starbound and nomansky has a story too! + nomansky has spacestations as starbound and a lots of features!
