Another World, the classic platformer by Eric Chahi, the creator of From Dust, will come to PlayStation 4 on June 25, Sony have confirmed.
Re-releasing the game for PS4 posed a technical challenge, according to Chahi and Martial Hesse-Dreville, a freelance game developer. They had to render the original game at 2560 by 1600 pixels with clean, anti-aliased polygon edges. Chahi also edited the backgrounds for display at a higher resolution, in full color. Animations also had to be refined to keep rough edges out of the game.
Another World is 23 years old, and was originally published for a range of early PCs in 1991 before being adapted and re-released on numerous other platforms since then. A 20th Anniversary Edition of the game launched on Steam last spring.
