Out of This World is a 1991 cinematic platformer, action-adventure game. It tells a story of Lester, a young scientist who, as a result of an experiment gone wrong, finds himself in a dangerous alien world where he is forced to fight for his survival.

Fumito Ueda cites it as an inspiration for his game, ICO. Hideo Kojima, creator of the Metal Gear series, said it was one of the five games that influenced him the most. And video game designer Goichi Suda, creator of Killer7, called it his favorite game.
