Also Oddworld Inc follows me on Twitter.

I'm Steam friends with one of the developers at JAW (the developer who's been handling the remakes) and I'm listed as a beta tester in the credits for the PC version of Stranger's Wrath HD, so there's my claim to fame.

Hopefully the remakes will lead to actual new entries in the series.

It's great that they're remaking 'Abe's Exoddus'! I literally just purchased 'New 'n' Tasty' from the Playstation Sotre a few days ago.

The only thing that annoys me slightly, is that I purchased the first two (original and boxed) games for PSOne about four years ago and never got around to playing them. Then a couple of years ago, I purchased digital copies of those same two games for PS3, thinking that it might spur me on to finally play them.

Then 'New 'n' Tasty' came out, so I bought that, thinking "okay so those 2 copies of the 1st game were a waste of money but at least I can still play through the original version of the 2nd game once I'm done with the remake of the 1st.

Now they're remaking the 2nd game! That'll teach me to impulse buy games and leave them on the shelf gathering literal (and digital) dust. Four copies of games that I'll never play!

-------------------------------------------------

I did try playing through the 1st 'Oddworld' game once I'd purchased it for PS3 (just to test it out) and I did my absolute best, got to the end of the first section; only to be told that I'd missed a whole bunch of Mudokons. I couldn't for the life of me figure out where they could be. It kind of put me off playing the game again. I'm a real completionist and it seemed like this game would drive me spare!

Still, I'm going to stick to it this time around (with 'New 'n' Tasty'). I will not have spent my money in vain this time!

Just Add Water isn't doing the new remake. While I loved New N' Tasty there where some issues with it that I didn't like. Like the ad boards being used to advtise JAW games when the game is about the dangers of advisement! (ok it pisses me off a lot). Maybe a new developer will be better?...Or worse XP

Urhhhh... really?! That's ridiculous! I really regret buying it now. F*ck's sake.

One game that needs a remake: Clock Tower

I'd be down with that. My number one change would be to make the main character walk faster than an arthritic tortoise.

You also get a trophy for seeing it...yeah....The Original had flaws but where in gameplay. They took there story and theme's seriously. But maybe the next developer won't be so blatantly ignoring the lore's theme.

Also don't let that stop you playing it though it really is a good game.

Oh, come on! That's absurd. What were they thinking?! Other than raking in THE MONIES by whoring out their products, at the expense of one of the game's core themes, I mean.

...don't let that stop you playing it though it really is a good game.

I'll try it out but if the advertisements make me grind my teeth and roll my eyes to the extent that I imagine they will, then I'll probably revert to playing the original PSOne game instead. At least then, my multiple purchases of that version won't have been in vain. Although I suppose my purchase of 'New 'n' Tasty' will have been. Bloody Norah!

Well as long as you play it in some format.:P

Oddworld: Soulstorm

San Francisco, March 14th 2016

Oddworld Inhabitants Inc. are today proud to announce Oddworld: Soulstorm, now being co-developed by Oddworld’s own internal teams in California and the UK; and in conjunction with Frima Studio in Québec, Canada.

A follow-up to the critically acclaimed* release of Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty, Oddworld: Soulstorm picks up from Abe’s genesis and directly follows on from the overthrow of RuptureFarms and the liberation of his blighted workmates.

Having defeated Molluck The Glukkon, his former boss and RuptureFarms’ meanest inhabitant, Abe soon finds himself - along with 300 newly emancipated Mudokons - without food, water or a place to call home. Stranded alone in the desert, they find solace in a strange new brew - a delicious drink that has insidious ramifications for their newfound freedom.

"There was a deeper, darker, and more sinister story that we never got to tell," explains series creator, Lorne Lanning. "Soulstorm gives us the opportunity to flesh out more meat on the bones of an original spine, but re-tell the fable from a very different angle."

"Abe has a long way to go and plenty more adversity ahead. Soulstorm is going to be a much heavier trip for him."

Oddworld: Soulstorm will continue to chew up the themes of environmentalism, capitalism, consumerism and addiction that critics and fans found so engaging in the "AAA Indie" release of Oddworld’s last pensive platformer, New ’n’ Tasty.

"We can’t wait to show you what we’ve got planned for Soulstorm" says executive producer Bennie Terry.

"We think Oddworld fans are really going to dig what we’re brewing, and we’ve got some great surprises in store this time around we don’t think anybody’s going to predict," he added. "I've been tasting it, and it's definitely got twice the twisted flavor."

Soulstorm, the highly volatile new game from Oddworld, is slated to explode in the latter half of 2017.

To feel the heat, please see our website at oddworld.com and follow us on Twitter and Facebook, where we will be revealing an all new Abe for Soulstorm. For details, please check oddworld.com.
