In an interview with VG247, Lorne Lanning declared that the upcoming New ‘n’ Tasty is “not a HD remake”, denouncing the term “HD remake” as it is currently used in the games industry on the grounds that it is usually used to describe older games being ported over and adjusted to work on new platforms.
In the interview, Lanning also had some harsh words for the industry’s publisher-developer system:
“Fuck that business. I don’t want to play with that business, because it was a losing business,” he lamented. “I just don’t want to go back and play the old [publisher] game. I’d rather not make games than go fucking be a slave for public companies who care more about their shareholders than they do about their customers.
The interview also covers Oddworld Inhabitants’ relationship with Sony; the studio’s willingness to ask fans what game they would like to see made; and the resurgence in popularity of 2D platformers.
