Another World or Out Of This World as it is sometimes referred to is currently available on Steam in a 20th anniversary edition. The action/ platform game made its debut in 1991 and has since been ported to several different platforms. Recently Another World was selected as one of the few games chosen to be part of New York‘s Museum Of Modern Art.

Another World has been catapulted to “cult” status by critics and game lovers and is widely recognized as one of the most original and innovative games of its generation. Presented with high-definition graphics, and newly remastered sound, Another World is sure to capture the attention of new and old fans alike.

Another World 20th Anniversary Edition offers 3 difficulty modes; its original mode, an easy mode, and for skilled gamers, a mode that is more difficult than the game’s original hardcore mode. The 20th Anniversary edition also comes with the Development Journal and a making of video.

All evidence is pointing to Valve planning on a Steam for Linux beta launch next week during the Ubuntu Developer Conference (UDC). An external beta was already planned for this month with up to 1,000 external players being sought. If Valve intends to keep to its timetable that beta has to happen before the end of Wednesday next week.

UDC begins on Monday and runs through November 1. Valve software engineer Andrew Bliss is already scheduled to give a talk during the conference on Monday, and a page has also appeared on Steam for the official Linux Beta Access group, which already has over 2,500 members.

There’s also an Open Steamworks listing gone live that lists Portal, Serious Sam 3, and Team Fortress 2 as part of the Steam for Linux beta. That’s most likely the final list of games being made available for anyone lucky enough to get accepted into this external beta test. However, Left 4 Dead 2 has already been confirmed as the first Linux-compatible Valve game, so it would be surprising if that title didn’t also feature as part of the beta.

The games line-up makes sense as it consists of both single-player and multiplayer-focused games. The use of Serious Sam 3 also acts as a good test for a third-party title already setup to run on a Linux platform without any help from Valve’s development team.

All will hopefully be revealed next week. If not by Andrew Bliss during his talk, then over on the Valve Linux Team Blog. I’m also hopeful that by the time Steam for Linux launches we will be able to access at least 15 games, all of which are already on Steam and Linux compatible.
