Great Game Intros : Another World

Cart: Another World
Cab: Amiga, Atari ST, DOS
Coin: Delphine

A lot of our looks at introduction sequences concentrate on the flashiness of the intro, or the impact it had on technology and gaming, but here we have a game that is included here purely for one thing: atmosphere.

Another World was a beautiful game that was a true step forward in restrained storytelling in gaming. The intro follows the same design ethos, with a simple set up that, when taken as its own story, leaves us with a slightly chilling ending. One minute he is there, the next he is gone.

We soon find out that he has inadvertently travelled to a fantastic, yet dangerous planet, where he will find companionship on a hostile world full of puzzles and wonder.

Here is a HD version of the intro for you to enjoy, and don’t forget you can check out all our greatest intros here.
