Out of This World Re-release

Out of This WorldIf you recognize this screenshot, you probably remember Out of This World (or Another World as it was known in Europe) as one of the coolest / most frustrating gaming experiences of your younger days.

You played as Lester Chaykin, spiritual predecessor to Gordon Freeman. His physics experiment goes awry and he ends up on an alien planet. It’s an adventure/platform game with great (for its time) graphics and atmosphere.

The game is being re-released for its 15th anniversary. The graphics engine is being very slightly enhanced but will maintain the classic look. Some screenshots and more information are here.

Apparently the game’s creator, Eric Chahi has some new projects in the works as well. If you speak French, you can read more on his site.
