Flashback, released as Flashback: The Quest for Identity in the US, is a cinematic platformer developed by Delphine Software of France, a now defunct company, and published by U.S. Gold in United States and Europe, and Sunsoft in Japan. The game is listed in the Guinness World Records as the best-selling French game of all time.
Flashback was initially released for the Amiga in 1992, then ported to MS-DOS, Acorn Archimedes, Sega Mega Drive/Genesis and Super Nintendo in 1993. CD-ROM versions of Flashback for the 3DO, Apple Macintosh, Atari Jaguar, CD-i, FM Towns, MS-DOS and the Sega CD were released during 1994 and 1995.
Originally advertised as a "CD-ROM game on a cartridge", the game features fully hand-drawn backdrops, and the player character Conrad's animation is rotoscoped, giving his movements a fluidity unusual for its time, similar to that of the earlier Prince of Persia. The rotoscoping technique of Flashback was invented independently of Prince of Persia, and used a more complicated method of first tracing video images onto transparencies.
Flashback is often mistaken for a sequel to Another World, an unrelated Delphine game written by Eric Chahi that also uses rotoscoped animations.
A two-track CD soundtrack was released featuring music inspired by the game, but not directly from it.
