Last week's Kickstarter update brought the happy news of a rather decent-looking title getting funded for Wii U, while some new titles joined the roster.

Another Another World: The Way Arrives On Kickstarter

May 6th - via: rockpapershotgun.com
Another World made such a powerful impact on my young mind that I’m willing to overlook the trials and errors involved, preferring to remember the grace of the animation, and the sense of alienation and companionship. I’d never played anything like it and can’t think of a similar game since that has lived up to those memories. The Kickstarter for otherworldly platformer The Way doesn’t require my Delphine-branded rose-tinted glasses. Another World is a clear inspiration – just look at the shields and the alien beast if – but the video isn’t reliant on flashbacks (reference very much intended). It’s a pretty piece of sci-fi. (Read More)

Flashback to Another World with a Heart of Darkness in The Way

May 6th - via: cliqist.com
Another World attracted a lot of attention back in the early 90′s for its brilliant storyline and balance of cutscenes and gameplay for dramatic effect and ultimate immersion. It drastically changed the way we look at games and the overall design of one. (Read More)

Sci-Fi Indie Platformer Wants To Be The Next Flashback

May 6th - via: kotaku.com
This one's also inspired by Heart of Darkness and Another World--with the latter serving as inspiration for Flashback itself. You could say it's a game inspired by a game inspired by Another World. But that would sound silly. (Read More)

The Way goes out of this world, is inspired by Out of This World

May 6th - via: destructoid.com
A lot of bygone genres have been making comebacks in recent years, like adventure games or fighting games, but a particular style of game has not yet made a return to the limelight. In today's terms, games like Out of This World, Heart of Darkness, or Flashback might be described as combinations of adventure games and puzzle platformers, but even that description is missing something that defines the titles. (Read More)
