Oddworld Inhabitants has finally given us another peek at the upcoming Abe’s Oddysee: New ‘n’ Tasty. This time the focus is on something a little different, though – it seems the classic RuptureFarms product posters are getting the HD treatment.

The updated poster for “New ‘n’ Tasty” (above)—redesigned by Jonny Eveson (who you may remember as the creator of these gorgeous art deco-inspired Oddworld posters)—will hopefully fit in to a HD world a lot better than the original version – and from what we can gather, we can expect to see more reimaginings from Eveson in the near future:

And as the cherry on top, the original teaser is introduced with “we’ve been working on some cool ideas for you guys to enjoy outside of the games”, suggesting that we may be seeing printed posters gracing our walls as well.

The team over at Just Add Water have asked Oddworld fans an interesting question: “what would you like to see next?”
Posted as a poll on official Oddworld Inhabitants blog, the question has a number of preset choices, including Abe’s Exoddus HD, The Brutal Ballad of Fangus Klott, a Stranger’s Wrath sequel, Squeek’s Oddysee, and Munch’s Exoddus. Some of these titles will no doubt be recognized as previously shelved Oddworld projects, while others (like a Stranger follow-up) are new ideas, at least officially.
The team are quick to stress that the poll won’t be the only factor that decides their next project, but it’s still interesting to see a games developer asking exactly what people want to see.
As of this writing there are just over one and a half thousand votes, with Abe’s Exoddus HD leading with over 400 votes.
