Oddworld Inhabitants announces platforms, title, gameplay features for ‘Abe HD’
San Francisco, USA, 1 October 2012.
Yesterday, Industry veteran and Just Add Water (Developments) Ltd. CEO Stewart Gilray was on stage at Eurogamer Expo 2012 to demonstrate the game. Whilst on stage, Gilray also revealed the full title of the game, after Oddworld Inhabitants ran a competition where fans submitted suggestions. The full name for the remake will be ‘Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee – New ‘n’ Tasty’.
The reimagining of the classic game will feature:
· fully 3D rendered environments with ‘2.5D’ gameplay;
· levels redesigned to take advantage of the new engine;
· rerecorded sounds and voices, including some surprises; and
· full integration with gaming platforms.
The game will launch on Microsoft’s Xbox Live Arcade and Sony’s PlayStation Network for both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, with a Microsoft Windows PC version due later.
Lorne Lanning, founder and co-owner of Oddworld Inhabitants said : “Oddworld Inhabitants is always overwhelmed by the fan dedication to Abe and the games and hope to keep them involved in the creative process for future games. We are all excited about giving a new generation of gamers the opportunity to play Abe’s Oddysee the way they deserve.”
Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee – New ‘n’ Tasty is expected to be released in Q4 2013. For more information, visit www.oddworld.com.
