Admittedly obsessed with Another World (or Out of This World), Gil Megidish has already ported Eric Chahi's game to several platforms -- PSP, PS2, GBA, and PC. Hist latest project is a "pure Javascript implementation" of the platformer that uses no plug-ins, ActiveX, or Flash.

With just a modern browser (Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Opera), you can load and play a portion of Another World. It's incomplete with only one supported level, graphical glitches, no sound effects or music, movement bugs, and a low frame-rate, but it works!

Megidish doesn't intend to continue work on the Javascript port, either, as he just wanted to create this proof of concept. He points out that you can already grab the official Another World re-release for Windows and mobile here, though you can't play them in your browser.
