Fans have eagerly been awaiting updates regarding Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty, an HD remake of the Playstation classic, Oddworld: Abe’s Odyssey. Today we get a delicious look at our next visit to Oddworld via the first official gameplay trailer. Prepare to die… again…
I know what you’re thinking, “Hey! “Prepare to die” is Dark Souls’ catch phrase!,” but let me assure you, Oddworld: Abe’s Odyssey was punishing players long before Demon’s Souls or Dark Souls was even a thought. If you’re looking for a true challenge, this is a fantastic place to start, especially for those unfamiliar with this incredible game.
Oddworld: Abe’s Odyssey is one of the greatest trial and error puzzle-platformers of all time. It combined an exciting and engaging universe with beautifully crafted and totally rewarding gameplay. You seriously had to earn every single checkpoint in that game and all too often players would die countless times before solving puzzles. Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty is rebuilding the original game from the ground up with impressive next-gen visuals and a completely remade library of music and sound effects.
If you’re a fan of Oddworld, feel free to share your love for the series in the comment section below. I’ve missed this quirky universe full of madness and I’d love to see Abe make a glorious comeback.
Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty is currently scheduled for release on PS4 and Vita in Spring 2014.
