Oddworld’s Lorne Lanning bets that fans will love a 3D re-creation of Abe’s Oddysee (interview)

GamesBeat: Lorne Lanning is the scrappiest of old-guard game developers. His Oddworld Inhabitants survived a long drought by turning its library of console games into downloadable versions on various platforms, and now he is self-publishing a new version of another vintage game: Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee New ‘n’ Tasty. We interviewed Lanning at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. (Dev, Lorne Lanning, Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee – New ‘n’ Tasty, PC, PS4, Wii U)

I'm down. Games like this one are hard to come by today.
MasterCornholio  +   116d ago
Come on announce a release date already.

Edit:
"Our basic tagline on that is, you’ll forgive us for not having a specific date, but you’re not going to forgive us for having a shitty game."

Ok I forgive you.

No one wants a rushed game.

Keep in mind, his games are self-published. Sometimes slow and steady wins every race. Last thing we need is Oddworld New 'N Forever.

Damn straight... Lorne's biggest regret must be signing off on PS & Sony, & going with MS exclusively, then when that failed, going with EA exclusively, who had also signed a deal with MS to keep Strangers Wrath exclusive..a game that would have flourished with the PS2 crowd that remembered Oddworld Inhabants...

They screwed up, like many do, by abandoning the very clients that had supported them passionately with PS1's awesome Abe Odysee & Exodus......I for one, was a bit disappointed when I bought Munch's Odysee, as it just didn't feel right, so I automatically dismissed Strangers Wrath (I did buy it on PS3's PSN service, along with Munch, just to support them).... I now have a PS4 & Wii-U & they will be my only 2 consoles this gen, so I would hope that Lorne is smart enough to make sure us Sony PS owners get any & all of there games this time, they don't have to be exclusive, as the more the merrier, & I would hate to see such talent as lorne & crew, be lost to the gaming world again
