View Full Version : Another World gets a facelift

Eric Chahi, the author of Another World/Out of this World has recently resurfaced and reclaimed the rights to his franchise (It was more or less a one man project) and worked on an improved version for PC, with higher resolution and touched up backgrounds.

It's not free, but it's not expensive either. He's also been looking at possibilites using the Xbox Live service.

Lookin' good. The graphical overhaul looks to be really quite well-done.. the visual style is nicely preserved.

Why not just make it freeware?

Hey, that's pretty darn cool. It's such a great game; nice to see it getting a rehash like this.

I think I still have the PC version somewhere. I bought it at a dollar store for a buck and it is the full version.

Are there possibilities with Xbox Live? It would be awesome if Microsoft encouraged this sort of development. That would be way more interesting and forward thinking than playing ROMs on the Revolution.
