Independently-made recreation of the intro to classic 16bit-era game Another World, made in Poland.
For those unfamiliar, Another World (or ‘Out Of This World’ in the US) was one of the first games to use cinematic cut-scenes convincingly within a game, using vector graphics as opposed to sprite or bitmap graphics.
Video embedded below:
Codename – Project 23 emerged a few months ago as an idea for a short film inspired by well-known game Another World. We are trying to make a video based on memorable intro from the game, edited with a few most interested elements of gameplay. Groundbreaking story, cinematic music, famous cut-scenes and realistic animation engraved in memory of gamers for a long time. We would like to make about 3 minute long film using modern film technology and spice it with an 80s feel. It will be also a promo video for Pixel Heaven 2014. We have full support from Eric Cachi (author of the game). Through frequent contact with him we have guarantee that our short film will have a proper look and feel.
Here is a video of the original Commodore Amiga intro:
The project is considering options to extend the film to cover many of the scenes throughout the game.
