Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty – Abe’s Oddysee is a remake of the classic 1997 PS1 title, Oddworld: Abes Oddysee. A cult classic in its day, developers Just Add Water obviously have faith in the remake, gifting it $5 million for the project. It’s a lot of money, but the power of nostalgia apparently has no bounds when it comes to gamers.
That said, it is nice to see a game remake come to PC that, while released on PC in 1997, was a console seller. On consoles the game is coming ‘soon’, on PC however, we’ve yet to receive any news. One good piece of news from that is that the game will be coming out on Linux, yet another title supporting the open platform.
The new trailer shows off Just Add Water’s dynamic lighting system in full force, and in 1080p, a first for consoles (just kidding).
