New Screenshots for Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty
It’s been many moons since I used to play Abe’s Oddysee on the original Playstation, staying up into the early hours, trying to sneak, dodge and hide in shadows past enemy units. To put it quite simply, it was a bloody brilliant experience. In-fact, back then, it was a personal favourite. The whole ‘escape’ orientated story-line was well and truly developed in the right manner and being able to get your ‘own’ back on a variety of mobs gave you those little snippets of power in which you never believed you had.
Well, good news for the Oddworld lovers out there as Oddworld Inhabitants and Just Add Water have now just released a new set of screenshots for the remake of Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee, Oddworld: New n Tasty.
I always have some serious concerns over ‘remakes’ of excellent games, as many of them in the mainstream are developed to get it out of starting blocks ASAP, missing some of the ‘core elements’ which are just so crucial to please the ‘today’s gamer’. I’m not trying to sound too pessimistic here, but the bar for this new re-make is incredibly high that I worry.
However, I am told by the developers that Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty aims to stay true to its roots, while sporting overhauled visuals. We can only wait a see (review copy please!) to fully confirm the above.
The game will hit PC, as well as PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PS VITA, Wii U, Mac and Linux this Summer.
PS – I agree with Youtube User MB.Mephisto….
I can’t fucking wait to play this again…
