Check out our press release for more information:
San Francisco – June 2013
The modern neostalgic re-creation of the first Oddworld Inhabitants PSX game from 1997, called Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty is coming to PlayStation®4, with a release date TBA 2014. The title marks the long-awaited return of Abe the Mudokon to Sony’s PlayStation® console, where the adventure began.
After a half-decade hiatus from making games, Oddworld Inhabitants is now a proudly independent publisher, working with Just Add Water (Developments) Ltd on the new title. This is only made possible by open, digital, self-publishing platforms like Sony’s PlayStation®Network. Powered by the Unity3D game engine, Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty makes the most of the new console’s hardware.
Oddworld Inhabitants and JAW have worked closely together since they started their partnership in 2010. After releasing Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD on PlayStation®3 to critical acclaim and working on updating Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee for multiple platforms, the work on New ‘n’ Tasty shows the relationship is a blossoming symbiosis that’s here to stay.
“We’re all excited by the opportunities for storytelling that the next generation of PlayStation® hardware can give Oddworld Inhabitants. It’s the perfect way for Abe to capture the hearts of new and old fans alike.” states Lorne Lanning, co-founder/co-owner of Oddworld Inhabitants, “We are extremely happy we have this close working relationship with Sony once again.”
New title Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty will be out TBA 2014, on the PlayStation®4, published by Oddworld Inhabitants and developed by Just Add Water (Developments) Ltd.
