    There was a game called Another World by some French Software Company which was followed up by FlashBack.

    Does anyone know where I could get my hands on either of those games?????

    I remember it well (and Flashback too - with rotoscoping!), were they made by Infogrames?

    I think I've still got it on floppy disk somewhere. There's a fair few sites out there which offer old games for download; they don't own the copyright but the companies that make them don't object so they let you have em. Maybe you could find one of said sites? I've got a link somewhere on my home computer, I'm sure.

    I think I've got it on disk somewhere, but....

    Only for the Atari ST.

    just remembered, it was by Delphine. I think it has the alternative title 'Out of This World'.

    Found it! 1.2 meg download

    I remembered what they call this kind of thing - abandonware. If you ever want an old out-of-production game, search for abandonware sites. There's loads of classics like Ultima VII and thousands more out there I found Flashback somewhere too.

    yeah

    god i love that game - Another World

    i still think that this is the best game ever made.
    Ths whole idea is so cool and at the end i just want to cry (heh!)

    i don't know why but since i installed Win2000 this game runs veeery slowly- any ideas?

    damn, good game - too bad they don't make these games anymore!

    i saw some things about 3d version of flash back, anyone knows where to get it from?


    thanks guys.
