    Another World Vita
    Another World Vita is a port of the classic game Another World for PSVita. Based on the 0.2.1. version created by Gregory Montoir.



    About
    Another World, also known as Out of This World in North America and Outer World (アウターワールド Autā Wārudo?) in Japan, is a 1991 cinematic platformer action-adventure game designed by Éric Chahi for Delphine Software. The game tells a story of Lester, a young scientist who, as a result of an experiment gone wrong, finds himself in a dangerous alien world where he is forced to fight for his survival.

    Requirements
    A Vita system with Henkaku installed to run homebrew.

    Install the vpk file in your Vita

    Put the original data files in the folder ux0:app/SOMO00002/DATA

    Original files can be downloaded in serveral sites, for example:

    http://www.myabandonware.com/game/out-of-this-world-18g#download

    Button configuration
    Arrow Keys: move Lester

    Left stick: move Lester

    X: run/shoot

    How to compile
    You need the vitasdk installed and SDL libraries to compile this game. I used this commit:

    https://github.com/Cpasjuste/SDL-Vita/commit/361262981e260bceb8a0f63195d80b778aa5e141

    Simply, launch the commnad:

    make

    Enchancements
    Feel free to create new issues and pull request to enchance this fantastic game.

    Credits
    Gregory Montoir for the PC version.

    Eric Chahi, obviously, for making this great game.

    I could be wrong, but wasn't that game already official released for Vita as 20th Anniversary Edition?

    I see. Not really my type of game, but nice to see that the SDL port is used for porting more and more games to the Vita :)

    There is no text or speech (that isn't an alien language "mitesaroomba!") in the game itself so it shouldn't matter much I don't think.

    Yes, it has. The computer talking with the main character on the intro and the game over screen with the password.
