Winds of change

Games Master - - Upfront -

There’s an al­most mag­i­cal at­mos­phere to Worlds Adrift, with a sense of ex­plo­ration that con­jures up Ghi­bli films. While it is an MMO, you’ll see another player maybe once an hour or so, mak­ing it more of an event than a reg­u­lar en­counter. This is very much about the jour­ney. That said, it can be slow. Start­ing with sails means you have to go where the wind takes you. Speed, turn­ing, and even stop­ping can take a while to mas­ter. There are some rough edges, par­tic­u­larly with the physics – ob­jects fall through the floor a lot, for ex­am­ple, and it’s too easy to kill your­self with a fall­ing ob­ject. It’s good enough to play now but a WIP that prom­ises plenty more in the months to come.
