Written by: / / 3 Comments


The PlayStation Blog recently released a video interview conducted with Oddworld Inhabitants co-founder Lorne Lanning during E3. In the interview Lanning discusses the legacy of Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee and some of the ways that Just Add Water’s upcoming remake Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty will improve on the original. These include more accessible gameplay and a better checkpoint/save system. Lanning also outlines a few of the challenges associated with the game’s new real-time 3D graphics such as having to create ‘steam zones’ for Abe to hide in as opposed to the completely dark sections featured in the original.

Here’s the interview featuring a few glimpses of glorious gameplay footage:

Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty will be released first for PS4 on July 22nd in North America and July 23rd in Europe. The game is also being developed for PS3, PS Vita, PC and Wii U. Head over here for El33tonline’s previous coverage of this highly anticipated remake powered by the Unity engine.
