Another World, entirely in Javascript

All the game requires to run is a modern web browser such as Safari, Firefox, Opera or Google Chrome

Another World

Another World

Game developer Gil Megidish states that he has "some kind of obsession with this game." Another World, released as Out of This World in North America, was a beautifully animated sci-fi adventure game first released in 1991 for the Commodore Amiga. Over the years Megidish has been a big part of the teams responsible for porting the game to other platforms, and he worked directly on the PC and 3DO versions, as well as the PSP, PS2, and Game Boy Advance iterations. His latest project is a browser-based interpretation of the game written entirely in Javascript. All the game requires to run is a modern web browser such as Safari, Firefox, Opera or Google Chrome. Though the project is not complete (and Megidish currently has no plans of completing it) it serves as an excellent proof of concept for what can be achieved with browser games now.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
