This article covers the development for Another World.
The game was originally called Another Land, but that name was already taken. The original plot would've been mostly the same, except for taking place on a Medieval Earth, with humans. However, the artist working on the game said he wasn't good at doing humans, so the head designer changed it into birds(because his pet was one). Other than that, the game was pretty much the same and had a smooth release date in 2014.
