Out of This World  1992

Out of This World, known as Another World in Europe and Outer World in Japan, is a cinematic platformer so original that it blurs the line between being a game and being a work of art. The game features absolutely no dialog and no text. A physicist named Lester Knight Chaykin, is simply transported to an alien world and left to figure out what to do and how to interact with aliens who don't speak his language. Out of This World was praised for its beautiful backgrounds and incribly original creatures. Everything about the game feels like being on a totally alien planet. Originally an Amiga game, a new level was added to the DOS version and all subsequent ports, and some levels were made more challenging. Two demos were released for DOS, with the newer demo adding support for PCjr/Tandy 1000 Mode 09h (the command line option "world -t" mentioned in the readme doesn't work; use CONFIG.EXE to set "TGA"). The game was re-released for Windows 98 and up in 2006 as Another World 15th Anniversary Edition, which increased the resolution to 1200×800 and allows the game to be played with beautiful new backgrounds or the original graphics and backgrounds. Only the first level is playable in the shareware version.
