Hey, remember the Abe Speak iPhone app that was announced? Oddworld Inhabitants definitely do, as close to two years after the initial announcement the developer has posted a new photograph of it running.
The latest build is described in a Twitter post as only having “small bugs left”, and although the studio says that there is currently no specific timetable, it’s quite possible the app will be releasing in the near future – especially after the attention the Oddworld Portal app garnered.
This is also the first confirmation that the app would run on an iPad – the original announcement only ever specified iOS, with preview photos showing off the iPhone version.
Stewart Gilray, CEO of Just Add Water recently announced that they were planning to release four projects this year. Stranger’s Warth‘s remastering is confirmed to be one of those four projects. On the other hand, Abe’s Oddysee HD isn’t one of those projects as JAW is aiming for a 2012 release. Shortly thereafter Stewart shared two pictures of Abe Speak (1 & 2) and revealed it is going to be a free app for the iOS. No mention of an Android version yet or when it will be released.
