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.

I would be up for a rom only purchase for the game drive.

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.

Saw that there was a new run of the physical carts and thought this might be a timely subject.

 

Was there ever any talk about adding a rom only option for purchase?  I would love to have this release on my Game Drive instead of a physical cart.

I would like a rom also as a companion for the GameDrive I just bought. Im already in for a physical copy through the group buy, but this would let me keep my actual cart unused.

I would ask @odie_one, but I don’t think they have the rights to release it digitally if they wanted to. There are still cartridges left, though.

Indeed, the RGC association only publishes and distributes the game on Jaguar. Sébastien Briais working on the adaptation of the game courtesy of Eric Chahi. The only person who can answer on a possible distribution of the ROM is Sébastien Briais. I doubt that is doable.

What is a game good for if it sits unused in a box?

Hoping for 100$ value increase in the next 3 years?

 

Come on guys ... it's just a game. The box in unsealed anyway. Use your cart, enjoy the game.

For playing the ROM, simply use the Genesis, SNES, MS-DOS, Amiga version ...

Hi evisu, I am a collector. I buy games to look pretty on my shelves, and flash carts to play them. I only sell games that do not meet my requirements...I keep nearly everything. I have been on a binge attempting to acquire a full collection of brand new sealed retail jag games, and also aftermarket ones. This title is my next step in that goal.

The Jaguar version is significantly superior to other 16-bit (25 year anniversary) versions.
Moreover, compared to the ST and Amiga versions, the game is longer. Eric CHAHI had added a step when the game was released on console.

I also collect Jaguar games. And it's a bit like books or boxes of DVDs on a shelf. It's beautiful to see and from time to time you use it

Buy 2 copies ... one unsealed to look at and one unsealed to play with.

For anyone on the fence; this one is well worth owning to play or to collect or both.  It's a great game well worth the $80.

I mean, or one could save $70 and just pick up the Anniversary edition available on any modern platform in the last decade.

 

But yeah, it's a cool game either way.
