Just Add Water has come up with a new name for its Abe’s Oddysee remake. The game is now called Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee New N’ Tasty! They were originally going to add HD to the end of the original title, like many other HD releases. However as they are remaking the game and not such updating its visuals, adding HD to the end might not show how much effort is being put into the remake.
Oddworld: Hand of Odd has received a teaser site from game developer Just Add Water. The teaser site only shows the game’s logo at the moment.
An early concept video for the cancelled Hand of Odd can be seen above.
Oddworld developer Just Add Water is to release a revamped, HD version of Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath for PS3 next Easter.
This will be the franchise’s first outing on a PlayStation console since 1998’s Oddworld: Abe’s Exoddus.
Stranger’s Wrath was originally released in 2005 for the Xbox. The new version will be download-only.
Since word got out that we’ve been working with Oddworld Inhabitants there have been many rumours circulating about what we’re working on… Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath is the first project in what we believe will be a long and fruitful relationship. Having the chance to update this great title and release it on PS3 is just a brilliant opportunity, not least for us, but for the fans too
said JAW boss Stewart Gilray.
The game will ship in 720p and will come complete with normal mapping, self-shadowing, re-mastered dialogue, Move support and additional material.
