Can whales fly? Worlds Adrift says ‘absolutely!’

We don’t know about you, but when we think of “sky whales,” the image of Twitter’s notorious “fail whale” comes to mind. Worlds Adrift begs to differ, as it’s introducing a noble skybound whale that will be one of many striking sights that airship pilots can encounter in their journeys.

The Worlds Adrift art team posted a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of the sky whale, which culminated in the inclusion of this fantastic beast to the game. “At this stage I can only stand back and watch as my giant ugly baby flies off into the sunset, tears streaming down my cheeks,” a developer posted.

You can watch the sky whale’s inception in a video after the break.

AION has had flying whales for 6+ years already.

Very surprised nobody has posted the creepy, sad, thoughtful cartoon by this name:

Well, whales must be high to spend that much.

I thought maybe they were selling gliders or jet packs in their cash shop.

I’m surprised there’s not one mention of Tera’s Sky Whale in the comments.

Can a whale fly?

If a dev throws a big enough cash shop advantage over a cliff, I’m sure we’ll find out one way or the other.

I’m rather looking forward to this game as time goes on.
