Last December saw the release of the Oddboxx
as all four games in the Oddworld
action series, including the last two that were never released for the PC, finally were made available via download on Steam. Now the EGM Facebook page has posted up an except from an upcoming interview in its print magazine that reveals a full fledged graphical remake of the first Oddworld game, Abe's Oddysee
, is in the works.
Details are scant at this phase but Oddworld Inhabitants
' founder Lorne Lanning stated, "It's basically Abe's Oddysee
being redone in a 3D physics engine as a 2D side-scrolling platformer." Developer Just Add Water
, who converted Oddworld Stranger's Wrath
to the PC, is handling the project which is being called Abe HD
. There's no word yet on when it will be released nor on what platforms, although since Lanning has said in the past he's a big fan of Steam we would assume it will show up for the PC at some point.
