A pair of classics are coming to the PS4 and Switch in the form of a special double pack that’ll have sci-fi classics Another World and Flashback.
If you’re a console gamer from the 16bit age, then you probably know both Flashback and Another World, also called Outer World or maybe more famously Out of the World. I remember them well, though I didn’t really appreciate them for what they were since I was a little on the younger side.
If you’re in that category as well, then you might be into a new double pack from developer Eric Chahi. The pack contains both of the above, but these aren’t the standard ‘vanilla’ editions.
The set will be built out with remastered presentations, as well as options that other versions lacked or are hard to find.
Here’s what’s included:
Another World story:
Also known as “Out Of This World” in the United States and “Outer World” in Japan, Another World™ has developed a cult status among critics and gamers for its innovative gameplay and avant-garde cinematography.
Another World™ recounts the adventures of Lester Knight Chaykin, a young scientist who travels through time and space when a nuclear experiment goes wrong. He arrives on another planet, where he will have to fight for survival, surrounded by hostile creatures. He will befriend an alien and only by working together, they will regain their freedom. You’ll need to be logical and highly skilled to overcome this adventure’s obstacles.
