Although I've never played a game and only watched a friend of my elder brother play it for a while, once or twice, it sufficed for me to feel slightly nostalgic about it. Having said that, I remember it just enough that I can now consider it as a good example of the early 3D hype that had studios everywhere rushing to make all-3D games, some would say all-too prematurely. Personally, I'm not entirely sure. Some of those games are classics nonetheless, such as Alone in the Dark. One thing is certain though: they have not aged very well. Terribly, compared to the older 2D classics, on this I do agree. But back to my point: this game is a particularly good example of that transition in how it compares to the original it is a sequel to: Flashback. The series is a quaint case in point.
Having said THAT, I see the 700+ votes, so far. And I know many more must also long to replay this game which was likely a cherished experience from way back when. I haven't much interest in its addition to GOG's catalog, personally -- I doubt I've enough nostalgia and familiarity with the game to be able to enjoy it today. But I've no opposition to this wish. As for its sequel, that I am somewhat interested in having a go at again.

GOG we need this game... simply light years ahead of it's time and features the an amazing soundtrack by Raphaël Gesqua that immerses you into the game right from the get go. Come on - this game deserves it

A near perfect game. Has an amazing sense of space and proportion, and like other Delphine games, only rarely uses text to inform the player what to do next. Great sound. Stubborn, but reliable, controls. GOG needs this game!

I did play the PlayStation version, and loved it. Although I never finished the game (likely because I was renting it back then), I recall being drawn to the intriguing alien atmosphere, which felt more completely realized than many other genre representatives. Felt ...special. The magnificent sound complemented this well on top. Would love to play it again.

I was able to play it with DOSBox on a Core i5 Windows 7 64-bit PC with Geforce GTX 480. I had to start the game with "f2b -2" command line to avoid the "single-speed CD drive" startup error. Otherwise there was no issue.

One of the few games I completed twice! And ahead of its time... Highly recommended!

Extremely underrated! One of my favourites. Would definitely buy it if available.

I played it as well on PC, that game would be great to have! The first one is a Classic, the second one was not as loud as the first, but still an excellent game nonetheless.

@FlamingFirewire: the "review" you posted is merely a rant of the PS port which was awful. The guy that made the video is an idiot; he doesn't pay attention to the cinematics that explain what you have to do, and then complain he has no idea what's going on. He also never completes the first level, which is where you actually get the rest of the background story.

Fade to Black was a great game on PC, decent controls, few glitches when patched, and while the graphics quality was a bit cubic (it was made in 3D without real 3D gpu support), it had really good animations, esp for how old it is.

Played the crap out of it when it was new, but never completed it. The original version won't run on modern computers or Windows though - the software 3D engine simply don't agree with the 32 bit DOS-box.

But Dolphine Software don't exist anymore (afaik), so getting this on GoG, and rewritten to actually work with modern hardware, might be a problem.

Certainly a favorite! But the controls were a bit laggy and the resolution could probably stand to be upscaled, but otherwise I loved it.

@krashd Flashback is in the GOG catalogue? Where? :-S

Another World and Flashback are already on GOG.com, it surely makes sense to complete the trilogy, no? I vote YES!

I own it and it can be played with dosbox. But it needs a little patch, otherwise left and right audio channels result reversed. (Wow, I am doing the gog job now ;) )http://vogons.zetafleet.com/viewtopic.php?t=25827

That's a great idea, fettouhi1815. I'm surprised that Flashback isn't already available, seeing as Another World is.

I had this on my Playstation but not sure what happened to my copy, while really different from the first game, I really enjoyed it still. I would love to play it again.

This game came out shortly before Tomb Raider and was overshadowed by it to put it mildly. If the protagonist wore skimpy clothing and had big breasts, maybe it would be different.

I own this game. have it on cd and its great. I think getting it on gog along with flashback would sell great and give peopel access to one of the best sifi games of the 90s
