The lights are on
Developer Oddworld Inhabitants was hard at work at releasing a HD remake of the original Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee. Now, the team has decided to completely reboot the game.
"We decided to reboot it, not just an HD update to the original PS1 title, this is a NEW game. It will be getting it's first public showing LATER this year, with a release date of NEXT summer (2013)," the developer said through Facebook.
The team later clarified, "It is a remake of the original PS1 title, however we have started it from scratch using the original as a blueprint... Ok?"
ummm....awesome. that is all.
FINALLY! I have been waiting for this day for a long time!
Sounds good to me!!
i like this news a lot
Well, a remake is at least a bit more original than just another HD upgrade. Still, why not a new game?
Somehow I saw this coming. Somehow. ;-)
Yes! I loved all the Oddworld games without exception and getting a new one is going to be awesome!
I loved the original games back in the Playstation era so I'm very excited to see what they'll do with the game!
Sweet! Though I guess if its a complete remake I should play the ps1 version
Sounds awesome! I'm still waiting to buy Stranger's Wrath HD and I'm looking forward to Munch's Oddysee HD as well. Can't wait to see more of this.
This is a good day.
... Ok? (What's with the dramatic caps btw?)
this is what developers should be doing, it doesn't seem very difficult to just add a hd makeover on games, it wouldn't hurt for them to update control/input issues as well
Seems like good news so long as they can pull off the artwork; Oddworld Inhabitants is still pretty peerless in their character/world design in terms of the artistry of it IMO, so for this reboot: 'anything less than the best is a felony.'
need to dl these on PSN
