Another World, also known as Out of This World in North America and Outer World (ã‚¢ã‚¦ã‚¿ãƒ¼ãƒ¯ãƒ¼ãƒ«ãƒ‰, AutÄ WÄrudo) in Japan, is a 1991 cinematic platformer action-adventure game designed by Ã‰ric Chahi for Delphine Software. The game tells a story of Lester, a young scientist who, as a result of an experiment gone wrong, finds himself in a dangerous alien world where he is forced to fight for his survival.
Originally developed for the Amiga and Atari ST and later released for the Apple IIGS and MS-DOS, Another World was widely ported to other contemporary systems. Later efforts resulted in several game engine recreations for the game that permitted it to run on modern computers, consoles and mobile phones. In 2006, Chahi independently released a 15th Anniversary Edition for modern computers, and a subsequent 20th Anniversary Edition five years later that adapted the game for numerous consoles and mobile computing platforms.
Another World was innovative in its use of cinematic effects in both real-time and cutscenes, which earned the game praise amongst critics and commercial success. It also influenced a number of other video games and designers, inspiring such titles as Flashback, Ico, Metal Gear Solid, and Silent Hill.
