Another World announced for iOS

Chahi: "First prototype looks beautiful."

Eric Chahi's classic '90s platformer Another World is coming to iOS devices later this year, the veteran developer has confirmed.

First released back in 1991, the cinematic sci-fi side-scroller will be brought up to date for iPhone and iPad by French port specialist DotEmu.

"I'm very pleased to work with my developer friends from DotEmu and their partner BulkyPix. The first prototype looks beautiful on iPad, they are doing a great job on it." said Chahi.

No new features have been confirmed as of yet, but DotEmu is promising to handle the project with due respect.

"We will put a lot of love and care to ensure that the gamers get best user experience playing this game on iOS," pledged founder Xavier Liard .

For more on why Chahi's game is deemed such a seminal piece of work, take a look at Eurogamer's recent retrospective.

"Another World, especially in its 15th Anniversary form, is still utterly beautiful," wrote John Bedford. "There's something compelling not just about the graphics, but the simplicity of the story."

Chahi's next project is Ubisoft god game From Dust, due later this year on PC, PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade.
