Turn down your brain cogs and switch off your imagination, the contest to determine the final name for Abe’s Oddysee HD has come to a close. No more submissions will be accepted, and phew, is that a relief! In the single week the contest has been alive, more than four-and-a-half thousand entries have reached our inboxes.
Thank you to every last participant; thank you so much for making us look through so many thousands of ideas. Given the number of submissions, it’s going to take us some time to go through all the suggestions, but we still hope to announce a winner in the near future.
In the meantime, here’s a special little something we threw onto our official Facebook Page yesterday, and let me tell you the response has been staggering! We were suppose to wait until the end of September, but here’s a sneaky screenshot of a work-in-progress environment from Abe’s Oddysee HD. Don’t forget these are early days with a lot more work to be done. And remember that Lorne Lanning and Just Add Water will be giving the world’s first demonstration of gameplay at Eurogamer Expo next month.
