Who does not remember the year 1991? I mean, at least those do, who were born before. You others don't. Sorry. Bryan Adams rocked the single charts with (Everything I Do) I Do It for You and in the cinemas we saw incredible feats of cinematic art like Home Alone, Hot Shots!, Star Trek VI and The silence of the lambs. But I personally could not have cared less.
My world was Another World.
The game Éric Chahi released that year, is probably one of the milestones in gaming history. Not only was the game compelling, beautifully drawn and captivated you immediately and for a long time. From a technical perspective, the game was groundbreaking in terms of several factors. The fast and fluid polygon graphics was new and the whole game did run in kind of a virtual machine, that Chahi built, before he went on with the gameplay itself.
This circumstance - the VM - paved the way for ports of Another World to pretty much every architecture and almost all consoles. Except the Commodore 64! Until Today.
Eric Majikeyric just released a Video on Youtube which seems to show a realtime sequence of Another World's Hammam scene. If it is real, we might finally see an Another World port for the C64 soon. 🏃
I am officially excited. Let's hope for the best.
