Another World a.k.a. Out of This World Coming to iOS


You probably know it better as Out of This World, but Eric Chahi's classic game Another World is celebrating its twentieth anniversary. To mark the occasion, the game will be treated to an iOS port later this year. The port is being handled by developer DotEmu and publisher BulkyPix.

Since its release in 1991, Another World has maintained a cult following, with many critics still praising the game even today. At the time, its vector graphics style was wildly innovative, and its presentation continues to fascinate.

The port to iOS comes with a full blessing from Chahi, who announced the title during his presentation at GDC. “I'm very pleased to work with my developer friends from DotEmu and their partner BulkyPix. The first prototype looks beautiful on Ipad, they are doing a great job on it."

I've never played Another World, but every screenshot I've seen is always incredibly evocative. It may be time to put an end to my curiosity. How about you? Let us know if you'll be grabbing the port when it arrives later this year.
