Title: Another World/Out of This World coming to the N64
Post by: Kerr Avon on September 16, 2020, 05:05 PM
The 1990's classic game Another World (known as Out of This World in some countries) is coming to the N64!

As Johnson noted, Jnmartin84 (who made the fantastic N64 ports of the PC games Doom and Doom 2) is bringing the game to the N64, and the source code is available from:

It's still being worked on (the last update was only seventeen hours ago), so I don't know how complete it all is, but if anyone wants to try it then you'll need to be familiar with building a binary from C++ source code. Or wait until it's complete, as Jnmartin84 will no doubt release a simple Windows program to do all of the work for you.

Here's a video of the game:

Warning: Don't watch much of the video, as the game is all about exploration with a bit of brain-work, so you don't want to spoil the game by already knowing how to get through the game.
