Both Another World and Flashback are games I played a lot of when I was younger and The Way is a great looking homage to Another World and Flashback.

The world they have created as shown off by the trailer looks incredible.

The reviews coming in are painting a pretty good picture of the game, so I might have to splash out for it and see if it lives up to my own expectations.

About the game (Official)
The Way is a 2D puzzle platformer game inspired by classic titles like Another World, Heart of Darkness and Flashback.

It tells a story about a member of space explorers team, who lost his beloved one and cannot accept her death. Finding ancient writings on eternal existence during one of his last expeditions makes him come back there in search of the meaning of life itself.

He will soon know that the planet has its own secrets and problems that he will need to face in order to get what he is looking for.

You can get it on GOG, Humble Store and Steam. Article taken from

I'll buy it probably. Flashback was a pretty good game.

Yes, I've got my eye on it for the same reasons...Flashback was/is excellent

Hmm, I do like the (flashback-like) Bermuda Syndrome, so 'The Way' sounds interesting. However, (some of) the reviews on GOG are not too promising. So given the price they call I rather say 'maybe later'...
