It is time, the countdown has expired. Players from all four corners of our tiny planet are setting out on their interstellar adventures .The indie game that became a AAA smash, No Man’s Sky has finally been launched.

And what a game it has turned out to be, with 18 quintillion planets to visit and countless solar systems to explore - what awaits is a nearly infinite universe overflowing with possibilities. But with so much freedom how are the players reacting so far?

To find out we thought we would use our trusty friend, the meme. What better way to truly convey the thoughts of the players than via the ever popular medium of gaming meme. We know that fans are loving that they can adopt a space pet and that they are hating that they can't see their friends on the same planet. But what else are they saying?

The meme has become one of the internet’s most effective ways to communicate opinion and enthusiasm or lack thereof, for any and all forms of entertainment franchises. Let’s see what they make of No Man’s Sky so far.

Just setting out in No Man's Sky - heading to the center of the Galaxy like...

Reaching the center of the galaxy in No Man's Sky like...

Anyone over the age of 20 be like...

Upgrading your hyperdrive like...

The theories start to roll in...

Taking your first steps on a new planet like...

PC Players be like...

Taking on the sentinels like...

Respawning in the life pod because you did something stupid and got your heavily modded ship blown up...

When you find yourself saying 'engage' like a real space captain...

What are your initial reactions to No Man's Sky?
