Worlds Adrift plans to launch by launching a real-life skyship
If you’ve been working on a title like Worlds Adrift for years, it’s likely that the impending launch will leave you feeling a bit… giddy. You are likely to give a green light to things you might, at a more sober time, not consider seriously. That having been said, it seems like spending the money to build and launch a fully functional skyship over London with a large number of playable game stations may not be the best use of time and money for a smaller indie title.
We suppose that at the very least it’s not an e-sports bus that will never work correctly, but that is such a low bar to clear that it’s functionally subterranean.
Yes, all of that is real. Bossa Nova will launch the ship 150 feet in the air, complete with stations to play the game, when the title pops into early access on May 17th. Which is indeed about as literal of a “launch event” as you could possibly have, but may be just a touch… let’s say “overzealous.” If you’ll be in London for the launch, you could win a shot to be on the skyship, although for the rest of us we’ll just have to watch and marvel.
