Imagine yourself as a nomad of the skies...
You and your ragtag band wander from island to island on your cobbled-together airship, scouring for [[Weapons|lost technology]] and scavenging for resources. You are constantly trying to improve your ship, keep it fueled, and keep it repaired. Sky predators, storms, and other travelling bands; all of which could be a threat to your ship, will dominate your thoughts. But in the back of your mind, you still ask yourself questions: How did your world become this way? What calamity, a thousand years ago, could have shattered the world into a thousand pieces? Deep down you know that the world was not always this way, and your questions are what drive you onward and upward, towards the endless skyline.
[[Worlds Adrift]] is entering uncharted territory, we’re not sure if some of the things we’re now capable of doing are any fun to play with, and if together they create a game anyone would like to play. After all, what good is a new idea if no one enjoys playing something built with it? This is where you come in. As a player, you know better than anyone what’s fun and what’s not. The devs wish to open up the development of [[Worlds Adrift]] so we can go on the journey together, and so you can help craft the game everyone would all love to play.

* First, [[Worlds Adrift]] is set in a persistent, shared multiplayer environment. That means anyone who plays the game will be in the same enormous world. (Due to the increased importance of low latency in a game with physics, however, the current plan is to have separate servers for different geographic regions—we can’t overcome the speed of light, I’m afraid).
* Secondly, the world will live and breathe. Worlds Adrift will not be an MMORPG as we know them. There are no quest hubs and no NPCs standing around forever, waiting to give you tasks. There are no low-level zones and high-level zones, because there will be no levels. There are no static, choreographed environments and events that replay for every new player.
* Instead, there will be [[Creatures]] that eat and live and die, and [[Trees]] that grow, and [[Ruins]] that hold secrets, and [[Wreckage]] that rusts and rots, all inside a world that doesn't revolve around you, but that can be permanently affected by your actions. You are a part of the world, and it’s up to you to decide which part that is, and how it relates to all the other parts.
This is a basic responsive front page design that adapts to the available width of the browser by
* Lastly, the world will behave according to believable physics. You can see in the devs latest video (and can read about the specifics in Rodrigo’s blog post last week) that [[Ships]] are constructed of pieces — each of which can be snapped off if there’s a strong enough impact. Much of the world will also behave like this: creatures, wreckage, loose objects on the ground. And of course there will be plenty of [[Rope Physics]] involved in player movement.

About The Game

Worlds Adrift is a sandbox MMO where thousands of players explore a physical and persistent world with the freedom to set their own objectives. This creates an unpredictable environment, rich with the potential for emergent gameplay. Every encounter with Creatures, players, or new islands brings with it new threats, experiences and conflicts.

Build and Customize your ultimate Skyship - From an agile skiff to a multi-level battle frigate able to withstand sustained bombardment, explore the world to find and learn what you need to build your ultimate flying base. Craft Engines, Wings, Cannons, Sails, Storage, and other parts for your ship. Your design will have direct consequences on the ship’s performance and handling. Will yours survive a Storm wall?

Freeform Coop and PvP - Wander the skies as a nomad or form crews to aid one another in exploration and ship building. Pool Resources to travel more safely and build greater skyships, or risk your life stowing away on an enemy ship. Join an alliance to explore, attack and defend the world as you see fit. As an open sandbox game, you must choose your allies carefully and be cautious when your crew encounters others who seek the same Treasures.

Physics Based Universe - Everything that moves and everything you touch has its own particular weight and Physics. With your trusty Grappling Hook, learn to scale the tallest towers and swing deftly between flying skyships. Think carefully and strategically about the physics of your ship – because every part you build and every decision you make brings its own benefits and consequences.

Worlds Adrift is currently in Early Access on steam. For the latest updates follow the blog here.
