Suggest a name for Abe HD!

Hey there, fellow chumps! Here on Oddworld we're having a little problem… maybe you can be the one to solve it!See, we need a name…

Hey there, fellow chumps! Here on Oddworld we’re having a little problem… maybe you can be the one to solve it!

See, we need a name for our 2.5D remake of Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee, and we need it in time for the big reveal later this year. We’ve considered Abe’s Oddysee HD, but that makes it sound like we’ve injected bigger pictures into the original engine. This is a grounds-up remake with glorious 3D graphics but retaining the classic 2D gameplay! We need a name that stands out and does it justice!

So if you’ve got your naming caps on and want to flex those titling muscles that you’ve been pumping every evening down at the imagym, just fill out this convenient form with your details and your idea.

If yours is the idea that stands out to us the most, not only will your winning suggestion be immortalized in the game, but you’ll get your name in the credits, plus a signed poster of the game’s cover art — by none other than Oddworld veteran Raymond Swanland!

The closing date is Friday August 10, and the result will be announced the following week.

So what are you waiting for? Get to work!

NOTE: A lot of people have been reporting problems using the form. We can only assume this is because of how much it’s being used, with hundreds upon hundreds of submissions. Please keep trying the form, as a lot of people report that it works when they try later. Given the problems, we will try to look at all the suggestions submitted as comments, but submitting to the form is the only way you can guarantee we’ll see it.

UPDATE: The contest has now finished and the submission form removed. The winning title will be announced at a later date. Thank you to all participants!

    They should do the same for Abe’s Exodus on the Wii U eShop.

    And please release Munch’s Oddysee for the Wii U’s eShop. Time Nintendo fans had a chance.

      We’re very excited to be bringing Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD and Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty to the Wii U. But that’s all you’re getting. The older games are going to be a significant time sink to port. We’d love to see it happen, but we have to prioritize.
