The remake, titled New ‘n’ Tasty, was shown off at this year’s Eurogamer Expo by Steward Gilray. The remake will take advantage of modern technology to re-create the magic that of the world of Abe’s Oddysee.

After years of wait, founder and co-founder of Oddworld Inhabitants Lorne Lanning finally has the chance to make the game he’s been waiting for as an appreciation for his fans. “Oddworld Inhabitants is always overwhelmed by the fan dedication to Abe and the games and hope to keep them involved in the creative process for future games. We are all excited about giving a new generation of gamers the opportunity to play Abe’s Oddysee the way they deserve.”
New ‘n’ Tasty will feature re-worked graphics (2.5D with a dynamic angling camera), levels re-designed to take advantage of the new game engine and re-recorded sounds and voices with “some surprises”; which could possibly mean more than just fart and burp noises.
Start saving those mudokons again on XBLA, PSN and PC sometime next year, with the PC release to come shortly after the other platforms.
