Here’s an interesting story – according to a post on the forum NeoGAF, Abe may have been planned as an upcoming character for PlayStation 3 game PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
The post’s source is a screenshot of a tweet from Stewart Gilray, which reads “we were to get Abe in DLC in April or May, but they cancelled us.”
The original tweet no longer appears in Gilray’s timeline, so we can’t verify if the screenshot was faked; however, the Just Add Water CEO has responded to a few inquiries about the post in a noncommittal manner, which suggests it is be genuine.

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.

Abe has ended at the very top of Thirteen1’s Greatest VideoGame Escape Artists list, beating Left 4 Dead’s survivors, Rayman and ‘Splosion man. Not bad at all!
