Lorne Lanning (Co-Founder of Oddworld Inhabitants and Chief Creative Officer Oddmobb Inc) was present at this year’s 3D Summit. He took part in the Panel Session entitled “The Drivers in 3D Gaming & Content: 3D Games Capitalize on Hollywood Success“. The entire discussion has recently been posted on Youtube: Part 1 & Part 2. Thanks to Zukan for the heads up.
This is a little heads up to notify you that the second developersâ€™ diaries giving us insights into the remastering of Oddworld Strangerâ€™s Wrath by Just Add Water has been posted. This entry takes a closer look at the character pipeline and shares whatÂ the people at JAW are doing to bring them up to date. The first two updated characters shown are Stranger and a Fuzzle.
The official Oddworld web space at oddworld.com has finally been replaced with a new website featuring news articles stream users can comment on, information on Oddworld Inhabitants and its games, links to places you can buy and download Abeâ€™s Oddysee and Abeâ€™s Exoddus, and a stream of AbeMudokonâ€™s twitter feed. The launch opened with a message from current head of marketing The Native hinting at the new production models and mediums of release Oddworld will be utilizing, which includes the technologies built by Lorne Lanningâ€™s new company, OddMobb. The Oddworld website stopped being regularly updated following the release of Strangerâ€™s Wrath, but came to a definite halt on 15 April 2005 when Alf announced he was going on â€˜sabbaticalâ€™. A â€˜Coming Soonâ€™ message was added as a splash page on 12 June 2006, but it took over four years for this to be replaced with the new WordPress-powered site. The new site is maintained by Just Add Water despite initially being created by a different company. Fans can now sign up to a mailing list to have the latest Oddworld news emailed to them.
