A Storm Is Brewing - Abe's Exoddus Remake Planned

Can New 'n' Tasty's success pave the way for Exoddus?

If you’re keeping up with Oddworld on Twitter or Facebook, you might have noticed us prompting all of our fans to go and watch the Kinda Funny Games stream on Twitch yesterday. The reason was simple: Lorne Lanning was appearing and he’s always fun to watch.

But for fans of Oddworld, there was a very interesting little piece of information to pick up on.

There’s plenty to watch, with Lorne talking about his views on the games industry as well as on the world in general. But if you’re excited for what’s next in the world of Oddworld, you’ll want to scrub forward to 01:09:30 where Lorne reveals that we are planning to start work on a full ground-up remake of Abe’s Exoddus.

We get asked every day whether this is going to happen so it’s nice to finally be able to say that this is indeed our intention.

Rest assured that the Wii U and PlayStation Vita versions of Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty are still in development and are planned for release later this year. The PlayStation 3 version is in the very final stages of development and it will be out very soon.

New ‘n’ Tasty is out now for PS4, PC and Xbox One as a digital download.

    I’m thinking for a name “Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee – X-Tra!” or “Oddworld: X-Tra Bone!”

    I wanna be Sam, Lady Margaret and Skillya in the remake, please! :D

    An excellent interview with Lorna Lanning and Greg Miller,unfortunately Mr Lannings anti-orwellian society views and his genuine concern regarding the worlds increasingly conglomerate power and liberal repression did appear at times completely lost on the interviewer (no hurt intended to Greg Miller I absolutely love watching Kinda Funny) even so as always it was a real pleasure to listen to Mr Lannings words and like him I too have always felt concern regarding the social implications written in dystopian novels like Animal Farm, 1984 and Lord of the Flies by william Golding, four of my favourite movies are THX1138 by George Lucas, Fantastic Planet by Ren’e LaLoux, Logans Run and Equilibrium by Kurt Wimmer, each movie portrays a world where its society has allowed itself to be ruled by a minority who have absolute power and control. I believe what Mr Lanning is saying is if we all allow apathy and indifference to rule our lives it wont be too long until everything we do everything we watch and everything we play will be predetermined and vehemently controlled by an omnipotent and all powerful political force that will do anything it takes to convince us all that it doesn’t actually even exist. The truth is without allowing outspoken people like Mr Lanning to speak their mind and by constricting the amazingly talented people at companies like Oddworld Inhabitants we would all one day hand in hand slip silently into a world of blind obedience and voiceless opinions (remember the Mudokons and their stitched lips) To me Oddworld Inhabitants are more than just a computer game developer, they possess that rare quality so often lacking in members of society today, that is the courage to break away from the multi-million dollar companies and against all odds come out triumphant and stand proud to be different. I prey and hope Mr Lanning and his Oddworld games will always be an inspiration to future game developers, movie directors and dare I say it..Politicians.
    P.S Really carn’t wait for the all new ABE’S EXODUS.

      I don’t know, I think it needs a simpler, but more powerful name, like “Exoddus: New ‘N Tasty” or something like that. I really liked the feel of the trailer for New ‘N Tasty set to “Born to Love You”, and I think they should roll with that atmosphere. It suits the fact that we’re dealing with a remake of pretty much the best PS1 game period, if not (IMO) quite possibly the best game ever made (Yeah, I went there. Exoddus was that good).

    OMG I am so ready for Abes Exoddus. Ready For Scrabs-Paramites, Glukkons, Sligs-Copter Sligs, Slogs, And Fleech’s. I think it should be call “Brew ‘N’ Tasty” Or “Soul Storm”. Like if you agree!

    I think what would be really cool is if Twice The Flavour (love that name) was darker than New ‘n’ Tasty. Because Abe’s Oddysee was darker than Exoddus, I think it’d be cool to see it switched this time around. It’d give the remakes a sort of symmetry.
