Found this in usenet:

You probably remember this from the 286/386 days, I just found it after all these years and what do you know, it works perfectly under OS/2! Check it out:
Another World (UK version was named Out of this World)

It seems really cool. Odd that it is a DOS platform game but it says its requirements is Windows(?).

Have you heard of http://www.dosgamesarchive.com ? They have lots of DOS games (older ones). One can even get them on a cd-rom (which I did ). I have not tried them yet but DOS games usually work in DOS full screen in OS/2 (at least the ones that I have tried [Doom, Quake - DOS version, Hexen, etc]).

All the games on the dos games archive disk should work fine
under OS/2.
I have tried them and included (or will include the game settings) them in the eGAMER program which I am currently completing.

In fact there are very few dos based games that do not work under OS/2.

More info on the eGAMER program can be found at
http://www.dosgamesarchive.com/egamer/
or the official eGAMER homepage.
