The classic game that American gamers know as Out of This World is on its way to iPhone and iPad.

Developer DotEmu is handling the transfer of the game to this new platform, and the development team seems to have the blessing of the original creator to move forward. "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."

This new announcement comes as great news for fans of the game. Since its original release in 1991, Another World (Out of This World) has gained a cult following for its ingenious and cinematic storytelling, which used the characters' actions and body movements to communicate a tale of depth and excitement. It also happened to be a great platforming experience.

Chahi is hard at work these days working with Ubisoft. He's heading up the team that will shortly release From Dust on XBLA, PSN, and PC. From Dust was originally announced at last year's E3 under the name Project Dust.
