Another World, known as Out of this World in North America, is a cinematic platformer developed by Eric Chahi for Delphine Software International, originally released for the Amiga and Atari ST home computers in 1991. It was subsequently ported to various platforms, with the Sega Mega Drive version being developed by Interplay and published by Virgin Games in 1993.

A Sega Mega-CD version was also announced for a May 1993 release in the USMore...[4] (later January 1994 for EuropeMore...[5]), which was delayed after Interplay decided to include it alongside a newly-produced sequel, titled Heart of the Alien, in order to take advantage of the extra space of the CD-ROM media.

An aftermarket Sega Dreamcast version exists titled Another World HD.
