Another world Purchase Rom ?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

just wondering if it’s possible to purchase Another World in Rom format now the Game Drive is out.

 

There are loads of cartridge based games I would happily pay for if the owners released Rom versions to download.

 

Cheers .

I don't know about Another World ever having a ROM available for purchase, but I do believe a future run of the game has been discussed before. In general, you'll probably have to wait a little bit for news regarding the ability to purchase ROMs of homebrews to use on the Game Drive.

Looks like there is an Atari ST version...

 

 

No the Jaguar version is better.

Look here for a comparison of the backgrounds between the Amiga, Jaguar, and 3DO version. They were all re-worked for the Jaguar, more colorful than the Amiga version, and more true to the original than the 3DO version.

What also helps the Jaguar version is that it's based on the excellent 20th anniversary edition.

I agree, the Jaguar version is better, but it is also no longer available.

I recently emailed with the folks behind it. They intend to do another release someday. Hold tight...

I'd be down for Another World as a purchase rom. They could even lock the rom somehow to only used on a single GD so no one can share it. There's probably a way for them to do it.

I doubt it. They said the same thing years ago.

Selling roms coded to individuals have worked well in the Intellivision community for quite a while. 

 

Honestly don't mind the $5 - $25 price tag for a rom for the Game Drive over the $50 - $80 price tag for the cost making a cartridge.
