Out Of This World / Another World Delphine Software International / Interplay Productions, Inc. 1991

You play Lester, the young physics professor, who suddenly finds himself in a strange alien world after a lightning struck his particle experiment. Now he should fight for his life, first with his bare hands, then with a gun he finds. But what gives him courage is the fact he is not alone. One of the aliens, who together with him escapes from the prison, helps him on his dangerous quest. Friendship can overcome all the obstacles. It's an adventure game, where the adventuring element is concealed behind what looks like a typical platform shooter. The gameplay is based mainly on physical and environmental puzzles. Each enemy requires a different strategy, and often there is only one way to solve the problem. The game is divided into levels, each one of which can be accessed by typing a code you learn after having completed the level. The game features vector graphics and animated cut scenes. After receiving critique about the original Amiga game's lifespan, a whole new area was added using a number of new ideas. This ended up being the 1991 MS-DOS version, which was ported by Daniel Morais. In 1995, a Windows 3.x version was released. This version includes MIDI renditions of the original music. While not a great commercial success, Another World was innovative in its use of cinematic effects in the graphics, sound and cut scenes, with characters communicating through their facial features, gestures, and actions only. This cinematic style granted it cult status amongst critics and fans.
