An HD remake of Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee
has been in development
at Just Add Water since last year. Now Oddworld Inhabitants' Facebook page
has offered an update: it's not just a remake. ... Well, okay, it's still technically
a remake, but with enough effort behind it to also qualify as a "reboot." Are you still with us?
Rather than updating the original Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee
2D artwork, Just Add Water will be using the original PSOne game "as a blueprint" for an HD remake built from scratch. We'll get our first taste of the game later this year, ahead of its planned launch in the summer of 2013.Update:
It looks like studio coordinator Wil Bunce is doubtful the remake will launch Summer 2013. In a forum post
, he says that there's "not one person on the development team who thinks that's going to happen."
