sry about duplicate,but now we can celebrate oddworld coming back yay!!!!
theyre just NOW bringing it back? what an odd world we live in
oh ho ho....look at you being Senor Smarty Pants ;)
Can't wait for more news on this! I just played through the PS1 Oddworld games not to long ago and bought one of the Xbox titles. I picked a good time to get back into the series it seems.
Oddworld is sooooooooooo old, but still a great game.
Oddworld still holds it own against anything out today.
Correct Necrum. I hope they make it a platformer and continue the Abe story though. I never got into the 3d Oddworld games.
OH MY GOD. Serious Sam HD, then MDK2, Then Medievil, now Oddworld... awesome IP revival time, people? Gimme Rollcage HD dammit!
Rollcage was awesome!! So was Colony Wars!
Wonder if this will still be the case?
No way. Not going to happen. MS dumped publishing the last game Stranger's Wrath, then OI quickly grouped with EA, whom completely forgot to market the existence of the game. In short. MS put OI on flatline, right back in the XBOX days, they'll never make that mistake again. On the other hand, the game MS went ahead with instead was Crimson Skies. Also, the 'Oddbox' for Steam will have all 4 games (including ports of both XBOX games) and will be published by OI themselves.
So I wasn't sure.
Not anymore. Publishers funding the games owned 50% 'interest' in the company, first that was Atari, then passed onto Microsoft, then EA... now? I'm not really sure who there publishers going to be. The most likely choice would be that it'd be the same as the developers last game. Sony Computer Entertainment. It's quite possible they'll have gone with another publisher though. Then again, they might remember how Sony console treated the Oddworld series very well, and Sony are in contact with Oddworld Inhabitants of late, which is seen as the Playstation one Oddworld games have just been placed onto the store. Either way, as a franchise Oddworld has been very inconsistent as to which playform it has been on, and has been often illogically exclusive. So it could be anything, or all, really.
And didn't MS buy the license?
Please let it be Fangus Klott!!
Oddworld is a badass game franchise. Best news all day.
YES!!! Classic IP Revolution has begun!!! Can't wait to see what they've done with OddWorld. First MediEvil, now this, what's next?!
Woot hopefully Abe would be back as well.
Oddworld is to the Playstation Crowd, what Monkey Island was/is to the DOS crowd. Might be an over/underated statement to some folk, but hell!!! ODDWORLD MO'FO!!!
Win. Although IMO, Only the first 2 games where good.
I just want a proper sequel to Strangers Wrath!
Not gonna happen cause no one bought it. Based on the developer I'd say it's more likely that were going to see a DLC 2D title (perhaps episodic) than a fully fledged retail title.
No one may have bought it but for the lucky few that did we were playing a great game with inventive FPS gameplay. Did you play it and hate it? or are you just disagreeing so your point has more weight?
If it says Oddworld on the box, I'll buy it. Those games are awesome!
I loved these games. I really enjoyed the first two. They made you think and strategize all while in a wonderfully original world that is humorous and quirky. I can't wait to see Abe again. EDIT: Spelling.
Amazing mews for 360
Sorry, but it said "multiple platforms". True, it might be meaning XBLA and iPhone, but Odds are it'll be for XBLA and PSN.
Projects? As in more than one? :D
Sweet> I loved the oddworld games like abe and that Xbox 360 game. I bought all three and enjoyed them immensly.
