Another World, the classic platformer by Eric Chahi, the creator of From Dust, will come to PlayStation 4 on June 25, Sony announced yesterday.

According to the project's website, Hlawka and more than 25 others spent over 800 hours putting together the piece, and they had the "full support" of Chahi. But Hlawka wasn't able...
