Another World for PS3
This project is based on the reverse engine made by Gregory Montoir, and reimplements the game Another World to be played on PS3. You need the original English DOS data files (in english, the game is known as "Out of This World").
Today it is a reimplementation of the game Another World in PS3, with some additional features from the original game:
- save / load the game on the fly with display of the status of "state game" via SDL_ttf
- bypass protection of the wheel of the game
- multiple fixes, including support for running on 64 bit architecture... Respect closely the PS3...
- Arrow keys = Allow you to move Lester
- Cross = Allow you run/shoot with your gun
- Select = allow to enter a code to jump at a specific level
- Start = pause the game
- Triangle = quit the game
- R1 = save game state
- L1 = load game state
- R2/L2 = change game state slot
You need to play the DOS version original English, the French version is not supported. You can find it under the name "Out of this World".
