“It took six days to create the Earth. Another World took two years.”
-- Another World tagline
Chahi also pioneered the concept of foreshadowing upcoming puzzles and obstacles by having them appear in the background on earlier screens. Thus, for example, a wild beast can be occasionally glimpsed off in the distance, baying at the moon or stalking Chaykin, before it is actually encountered. The end result was an environment with depth, a place which, quite conceivably, was inhabited long before Chaykin’s arrival, and is reacting dynamically to his presence.
|(1992’s Flashback, also by Delphine, is often erroneously considered a sequel to Out Of This World due to its similar cinematic visual style and almost identical gameplay. The actual sequel to Out Of This World is entitled Heart Of The Alien, and was released for the Sega Mega-CD in 1994, which was later unofficially ported to Windows and Symbian.)|
