This One Goes Out To Fans Of Out Of This World

Or, as I knew it, Another World. This indie demo is for a game called Concurrence, and while this particular section has been put together for a competition, a full game is in the works.

You play a man (Radiohead's Thom Yorke, it seems) who wakes up on an alien planet and has to find out what the hell is going on. It combines platforming sections with adventure games mechanics, and while it looks a little rough (in its defence, it was made using Adventure Game Studio!), it also looks like it was made specifically to tug at the heartstrings of fans of Eric Chahi's 1991 classic.

At the earliest the full game will be out at the end of this year, but you can play a short demo right now at the link below.

    Love the vector art. Looks so similar! BUT WHERE ARE THE GDAMN LEACHES?!

    I like it! More please Mr Klingenbeck

    Those character animations look straight out of Flashback, not that I'm complaining mind you =)

      And the player character is Thom Yorke!!!

    This game was before Flashback. I am interested too see how this looks in the finished stage as I was hoping someone would remake Flashback as well. Which I was hoping they kept as traditional as possible just update mechanics a little and graphics.

    So many remakes ruin the concept of the game.
    Alien Breed and Lode Runner come to mind of the most recent.

    But on the other hand the update of Monkey Island by Lucasarts have been fantastic.
