Another World ported to the TI-Nspire
Posted by Xavier on 14 March 2016, 00:11 GMT

Another World «Good evening professor. I see you have driven here in your Ferrari [...]»
You're welcomed with these words by the nuclear physics laboratory computer at the beginning of Another World, the video game developed by Eric Chahi and released in 1991 by Delphine Software.

The game also known as Out of This World in North America and Outer World in Japan has aged very well, since the computer running the CDOS 5.01 operating system by Peanut Computer Inc. looks still as futuristic today with its 3D holographic user interface !

But alas, as soon as you start conducting the nuclear experiment, lightning strikes your particle accelerator and sends you to another world. You're not in Kansas anymore and, as on Pandora, every living thing that crawls, flies or squats in the mud want to kill you...

Thanks to Gameblabla who ported RAW, a free Another World bytecode interpreter, to the TI-Nspire, you can now try again to survive this hostile universe on your calculator... if you're brave enough !

Awesome! Whilst I never got very far through it, I used to play Another World on the Amiga. It was like a futuristic Prince of Persia :P

I've played it in the 90s on PC/DOS.
Quite hard, I never got very far either ! :P
