“We’re really pleased to announce that we’re now recruiting LOTS of people for the next Alpha playtest of Worlds Adrift. Before we go any further, let us just tell you that THE DEADLINE FOR SIGNING UP TO TAKE PART IN THE PLAYTEST IS 29TH AUGUST. We won’t be able to add anyone to the playtest after this, so please make sure you and all of your friends have registered before then.”
Expect to be testing the crew system, new islands, creatures, the weather system, an improved UI, and new wearables.
Bossa Studios was recently the beneficiary of a massive investment — $1.35 million — from a venture capital firm, intended to hasten development of the game. The studio released its Island Creator on Steam back in April, allowing players to get a taste of what building in the game is all about. To date, there are over 1600 islands on Steam Workshop. There’s an emblem creator for groups on the official site as well.
The alpha trailer is below; you can sign up on the official site.
