Oddworld Inhabitants are running a competition for fans to (once again) name a part of the upcoming Abe’s Oddysee remake.
The competition, which was posted on the official Oddworld site, asks fans to submit names for some of the Trophies that will appear in the game.
The trophies to be named are:
  • Kill a Boombat with a rock
  • Escape from RuptureFarms without Abe being spotted by any Slig
  • Have Abe die in 15 unique ways
  • Kill Sligs in 15 unique ways
  • Finish the game with the Good Ending faster than our best developer time
The deadline for submissions is Wednesday 5th February, and all entries are to be submitted by email (alf@oddworld.com). Oddworld staff will then pick five finalists for each Trophy from the submissions, and the winner will be voted by fans.

Prizes

In addition to their submission being used in the game, winners will also have their names featured in the game credits and will also be given a download code for a copy of New ‘n’ Tasty on the PlayStation platform of their choice. Runners-up will receive a download code for the Oddboxx.

In a post on the official Oddworld.com blog, Oddworld Inhabitants have reached out to fans for suggestions on naming the game currently referred to as “Abe HD”.
The post states that the team do not simply wish to title the game “Abe’s Oddysee HD” as this would make it “sound like [they have] injected bigger pictures into the original engine”, as opposed to a full “grounds-up” 3D remake.
A rather nice prize is being offered for the winning suggestion – besides having their suggestion used as the game’s title, the winner will have their name in the game’s credits and will be awarded a poster of the game’s cover art, signed by artist Raymond Swanland.
Suggestions are to be entered via the form attached to the blogpost, and must be submitted before August 10.
