Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee Getting HD Reboot
A post on Eurogamer today reported that the original PlayStation title, Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee, will be getting an HD reboot in summer 2013. The news comes courtesy of a posting on Oddworld Inhabitants’ Facebook page, where the following can be found:
“We decided to reboot [Abe’s Oddysee], not just an HD update to the original PS1 title, this is NEW game. It will be getting its first public showing LATER this year, with a release date of NEXT summer (2013).”
“To extra clarify Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee HD, it is a remake of the original PS1 title, however we have started it from scratch using the original as a blueprint.”
Other than that, though, there’s not much more information. What platform might we see this reboot on? Will it be full retail, or a downloadable game? Costs? Anyone from the original development team on this reboot that’s for a game over decade old? These are the questions. What are the answers?
