Now here is a nice surprise. Focus Home Interactive has released a true classic game on Valve’s distribution service, Steam, remastered with improved graphics. Ladies and gentlemen, behold Another World: 20th Anniversary Edition. This version of Another World is said to be a joint effort between visionary game-designer Eric Chahi and developer DotEmu, that comes with high definition graphics faithful to the original design (note: the image above is not from the game).
Another World is a pioneer action/platformer that released across more than a dozen platforms since its debut in 1991. Along the years, Another World has attained cult status among critics and sophisticated gamers alike.
Another World chronicles the story of Lester Knight Chaykin a young scientist hurtled through space and time by a nuclear experiment that goes wrong. In an alien and inhospitable world, you will have to dodge, outwit, and overcome the host of alien monsters, while surviving an environment as deadly as your enemies.
Another World: 20th Anniversary Edition features 3 difficulty modes – Normal (easier than original game), Difficult (Equal to original game) and Hardcore (more difficult than original game) – and is powered by 100% remastered sounds and FX.
In addition, this new version of Another World comes with Steamworks (and 13 achievements), as well as some extra features like a development diary, making of video, and a technical handbook.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
