Lorne Lanning, co-founder of Oddworld Inhabitants, has revealed that Abe’s Oddysee is currently being redone with HD graphics by Just Add Water, the same game developer responsible for the Stranger’s Wrath PS3 HD remake coming this spring.
Abe HD is going into production. It’s basically Abe’s Oddysee being redone in a 3D physics engine as a 2D side-scrolling platformer. So the way Just Add Water wants to approach it, we thought was very smart; they are not trying to reinvent any wheels. It’s like, ‘Can we make that experience in a new engine, with new tech, in the old way?
A release date for the Abe’s Oddysee remake has not yet been announced but more information regarding the game and future Oddworld plans will be revealed in an upcoming issue of EGM available on newsstands February 14th. Source: EGM Discuss this news on the Oddworld Forums.
