Oddworld Inhabitants rebooting Abe's Oddysee as new game
Oddworld Inhabitants is reworking the original Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee game from scratch.
"We decided to reboot it, not just an HD update to the original PS1 title, this is a NEW game," the team wrote on their Facebook page. "It will be getting it's first public showing LATER this year, with a release date of NEXT summer (2013)."
“We are starting from scratch on this one, using the original as the blueprint for the game," Just Add Water’s Stewart Gilray told VG247. "So technically it’s not a new game, but a from-the-ground-up remake.”
Previously, series creator Lorne Lanning confirmed an HD version and said the title would be "redone in a 3D physics engine as a 2D side-scrolling platformer.”
The original Abe's Oddysee released in 1997 for PlayStation.
