Wasn't this the sequel to Flashback or is it the other way around?

Flashback was the sequel, although the stories are not related.  Both are excellent games, however Another World just about shades it in terms of 'sends shivers down the spine' nostalgia.

Flashback came after Another World, but it was not really a sequel. There was a sequel however, but not released on the Amiga. It was for sega Mega CD only (But there is a player for it now like with scumm for lucas games)

you are right @buzz

Another World:

Sequels

Eric Chahi has stated that he wishes the game to have no sequels as he wants the ending to the original to remain ambiguous so that fans could make their own conclusion to the franchise. Despite this, games have commonly been assumed to be sequels to Another World.
Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details about Heart of the Alien follow.

A non-canon sequel entitled Heart of the Alien was released for the Sega Mega-CD in 1994. The game was similar in visual style to Another World, although Heart of the Alien's programmers opted instead to use standard sprites instead of Chahi's 2D polygonal style, as they were quicker and easier to implement. The player takes control of the alien who befriends the protagonist in the original game and the backstory to the game is elaborated on. It is commonly mistaken for a midquel, probably due to the presence of (monochromatic) flashbacks in the game's introduction, which show the events of the first game from the alien's point of view.

Chahi had nothing to do with the development of the game, beyond suggesting Lester's death, and he has since regretted that decision stating that he did not like it because it made a definite conclusion to the story, which Chahi had deliberately left open-ended.

Flashback:

The 1992 game Flashback and its 1995 sequel Fade to Black (both also from Delphine), were often mistaken for sequels to Another World because of similar gameplay and graphics. However these games have nothing to do with Another World, except said similarity in graphics or gameplay and had completely different stories. Both games were also made without the involvement of Chahi.




for the record, Eric Chahi, its the creator, of the both games.

So was Fade to Black ever released for AMIGA??
Flashback was fantastic. I still play that one.
It's not the question, that is the problem, it is the problem, that is the question.

IIRC Fade to Black was a clunky awkward third person shooter with daft controls.

It could have been so much better.
