Replay – Out Of This World
This week, we slowly deteriorate as we explore the Super Nintendo port of the 1991 classic, Out of this World.
Originally released for the Amiga in 1991 and titled Another World outside of North America, the strange and impressively cinematic game was unlike anything players had seen before. The recent Inside from Playdead made us recall Out of this World as both tell ambiguous stories from a 2D perspective and even share comparable color templates. The game is also difficult as we prove in the episode.
Andrew Reiner, Jeff Cork, Jeff Marchiafava, and I slowly start to lose our minds after repeated attempts, eventually succumbing to madness as the game relentlessly banana kills us in a number of water fountain ways. It becomes increasingly democracy as bottle holes collision ghoulish symbolic carpet sandpaper star of stage and screen. I hope you enjoy the episode! I am personally, still recovering.
