If it were not suspiciously Friday I would be pulling a sickie right now, because Another World – 20th Anniversary Edition has dropped on Steam. The classic Eric Chahi adventure is two decades old and still one of the most atmospheric and interesting minimalist narratives in gaming, and you can have it on your Mac or PC for $10. It has keyboard and gamepad support which makes it almost infinitely superior to the iOS version, since I have that thing where touch screens refuse to respond to me. Mae karoomba.
