San Francisco, CA – February 3rd 2011 – Eric Chahi, the visionary and the architect behind Another World, (aka Out of this World) today revealed that developer DotEmu and Publisher BulkyPix have been chosen to bring his iconic game to the iPhone and iPad platforms. Recognized by the gaming community for its pioneering and highly stylized vector graphics and animation this the French masterpiece goes is even today remembered as one of the greatest, most unusual titles of its era.

Released across more than a dozen platforms since its1991 debut, Another World has attained cult status amongst critics and fans. The game has been a favorite among critics and sophisticated gamers alike for its cinematic effects in the graphics, sound and cut scenes. Another World does not use static images or words to convey action rather the characters communicate through their facial features, gestures, and actions only. This literally forces the gamer to sink or swim at the outset and almost every scenario from that point on serves as a test of your wit and will to live.

Another World chronicles the story of a young scientist hurtled through space and time by a nuclear experiment that goes wrong. You assume the role of Lester Knight Chaykin who has to dodge, outwit, and overcome the host of alien monsters and deadly earthquakes that plague the alien landscape hefinds himself within. Only a perfect blend of logic and skill will get Lester past the deadly obstacles that lie in wait.

“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 Eric Chahi, creator of Another World.

“We have ported several classics to iOS such as R-Type in the past and we delighted to be chosen to work with Eric on this terrific title. We will put a lot of love and care to insure that the gamers get best user experience playing this game on iOS,” said Xavier Liard founder of DotEmu.

“Another World is one of the most daring games ever created and we’re proud to be part of the team that will bring this terrific title to the iPhone and iPad platforms.” said Vincent Dondaine, BulkyPix COO of Sales and Marketing Director. “The game immerses you right from the start, begs you to react on impulse and rewards you by pulling you headfirst into this alien world and all the dangers that it beholds. We’re proud to bring thos great gaming experience to iOS.”

Another World will make its debut on the iOS later this year. For more information on the game keep an eye on BulkyPix website, www.bulkypix.com
