Worlds Adrift will let you be a nomad of the skies

    
23

Imagine that you’re a nomad of the skies, constructing and sailing your airship to nearby floating islands in search of rare crafting materials. Imagine that everything around you reacts to physics, allowing you to traverse and manipulate the game world in believable ways. Throw in a dash of cel-shaded charm, and you’ll have the upcoming Worlds Adrift.

Worlds Adrift has been in development for a few months with the goal of making a shared multiplayer environment that “lives and breathes.” While there won’t be quests or NPCs, there will be grappling hooks, crossbows, and engrossing atmosphere. The team is opening up the project to take in suggestions so that players can help steer the course of Worlds Adrift’s development.

We’ve got a few video sneak peeks for the game after the jump!

It’s the first use case for the underlying Improbable tech which hopefully could be a game changer for Indie devs (the kind of devs who don’t necessarily push Pavlovian conditioning and Skinner boxing as a staple of MMORPG). Finger crossed for the beyond client-server adventure.

Looks really cool. Something to be excited for. Interesting, they have been working on this less than a year and already have more to show than world of darkness or everquest next.

This game makes me think so much of the indie game Sky Nations (http://store.steampowered.com/app/310760/) that it’s hard to ignore.

I’m not a fan of crafting in any MMO, let alone a crafting centric MMO, but I must admit this looks interesting.  The 3 videos had a nice vibe to them.  I kept thinking how it kinda-sorta reminded me of Journey. I think I’ll keep an eye on this one and see where it goes.

BhimaJenkins That’s how Minecraft used to be, for me. I’m not sure when or how exactly that changed, but I’d love to recapture it.
