At the end of his 'retro postmortem' presentation at Game Developers Conference 2011, Another World creator Eric Chahi said his classic game, known as Out of this World in North America, will be coming to Apple’s iPhone and iPad.

French video game studio DotEmu is developing the game for iOS, and fellow French game company BulkyPix will be publishing the new version, due later this year.

Another World debuted in 1991 and has since appeared on over a dozen platforms. Chahi said in a statement, "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."

DotEmu founder Xavier Liard added that his company has ported a number of classic games to iOS such as the shooter R-Type.

"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," BulkyPix marketing director Vincent Dondaine.

Gamasutra will have a full write-up of Chahi's classic game postmortem in the near future.
