Was about to say "Wasn't this terrible?" But I got it confused with the Flashback remake rather than this just being a port. Phew. Will grab on Vita and hopefully cross-buy/save minimum with PS4.

I hope it will have music this time.
It doesn't have music?

I've yet to play Another World, despite always meaning to. I'm often at a loss as to where would be the best place to play it, and which version is definitive. I don't remember whether I ever bought it on PC.

Oh man, I am all over this. I'm going to leave my hands off of the controller and die immediately after the opening cutscene in order to replicate the true Out of This World experience.

It's available on Steam and GOG so check your accounts there. :) I played through AW for the first time on PC and I would call it a great remake/port, has easier difficulty settings, checkpoints, level select and you can toggle between old and new (which are just like the old ones but a bit more detailed) graphics on the fly.

Lovely, it will be interesting to see it in 3D on 3ds, but will look gorgeous on Vita screen.. Tough choice!

One of the game that marked me the most back in the days. Nice bday! I should do an other art for it :p

I already own it on my phone (which is a horrible way to play this game) and I grabbed it on Steam as soon as it showed up there. But I won't resist grabbing it for console if it shows up, it's just too good and I have too many fond memories of the SNES version.

Nope. If you are more familiar with the SNES version you will recall it had great music. The PC version has no music at all.

It almost ruined the experience for me.

Added on console ports for some reason, I can only assume they wanted to kill the atmosphere :D

I have the PC edition and its fantastic. Well, you kinda have to be a fan of it originally i guess, as i can see the trial and error-ness of it pissing off alot of newbies. Deadlight was a similar game int hat it required alot of trial and error and people ripped that game a new one, even tho i quite enjoyed it.

Good to hear - I will definitely check it out, for the right price. I picked it up on Android a couple of years ago, and while it's still an interesting game I couldn't finish it because the controls were horrible.

How was the sort-of-sequel Heart of the Alien? I know of it but never checked it out.

I wouldn't call the SNES music great. More like an overproduced, tacked on abomination. You may disagree because that's the version you played first and some subtle background music wouldn't necessarily be bad but the remake stays true to the original vision of the creator (=Amiga/Atari versions) and I prefer that over someone else tinkering with the game.

It's a great game, but isn't this like the 3rd or 4th "re-release"? They are milking the fuck out of it.

1992: SNES, Genesis
1993: Macintosh
1994: 3DO, Windows 3.x
1994: Sega CD (Heart of the Alien: Out of this World parts I and II)

Phone version?
2005: Symbian

Another World: 15th Anniversary Edition:
2006: Windows

Another World: 20th Anniversary Edition:
2011: iOS

2013: Ouya
2014: 3DS,Vita,WiiU,PS3,PS4 and X1.

I love the game, but ... c'mon.

edit: *sigh* if the price is right ($5), I'd be down for a vita version.
