Can’t wait to read the ST port, as there was only a blitter on the STe. I remember buying the ST copies in Paris, and the first batch had a production issue that made them unreadable. I ended playing the game on Amiga only years later.
Very interesting so far. I also remember reading about the virtual machine for Another World ages ago, which is similarly clever.
I believe this article might be what you’re referring to: https://fabiensanglard.net/anotherWorld_code_review/
It references Eric Chahi’s page about the creation of AW: http://www.anotherworld.fr/anotherworld_uk/another_world.htm
i’m kind of amazed that i’ve never heard of this game. i should hunt up a copy and play it for a bit.
