San Francisco, CA – February 3rd 2011 – Eric Chahi,
the visionary and the architect behind Another World, (aka Out of
this World) today revealed that developer DotEmu and Publisher
BulkyPix have been chosen to bring his iconic game to the iPhone
and iPad platforms. Recognized by the gaming community for its
pioneering and highly stylized vector graphics and animation this
the French masterpiece goes is even today remembered as one of the
greatest, most unusual titles of its era.
Released across more than a dozen platforms since its1991 debut,
Another World has attained cult status amongst critics and fans.
The game has been a favorite among critics and sophisticated gamers
alike for its cinematic effects in the graphics, sound and cut
scenes. Another World does not use static images or words to convey
action rather the characters communicate through their facial
features, gestures, and actions only. This literally forces the
gamer to sink or swim at the outset and almost every scenario from
that point on serves as a test of your wit and will to live.
Another World chronicles the story of a young scientist hurtled
through space and time by a nuclear experiment that goes wrong. You
assume the role of Lester Knight Chaykin who has to dodge, outwit,
and overcome the host of alien monsters and deadly earthquakes that
plague the alien landscape hefinds himself within. Only a perfect
blend of logic and skill will get Lester past the deadly obstacles
that lie in wait.
“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.” said
Eric Chahi, creator of Another World.
“We have ported several classics to iOS such as R-Type in
the past and we delighted to be chosen to work with Eric on this
terrific title. We will put a lot of love and care to insure that
the gamers get best user experience playing this game on
iOS,” said Xavier Liard founder of DotEmu.
“Another World is one of the most daring games ever
created and we’re proud to be part of the team that will
bring this terrific title to the iPhone and iPad platforms.”
said Vincent Dondaine, BulkyPix COO of Sales and Marketing
Director. “The game immerses you right from the start, begs
you to react on impulse and rewards you by pulling you headfirst
into this alien world and all the dangers that it beholds.
We’re proud to bring thos great gaming experience to
Another World will make its debut on the iOS later this year.
