Just Add Water makes it official. Oddworld’s coming back!
Well, its been hinted at for a while now, but we can finally say it for sure. Oddworld’s coming back to consoles. Just Add Water, the developers of Gravity Crash, has posted this statement on their official web site;
It’s with a huge amount of pride that we can announce that for the past 12 months we have been working extremely closely with the fantastic people at Oddworld Inhabitants, from what started off as brief discussions in June 2009, to now working on multiple projects, across multiple platforms.
Whilst we cannot go into specifics right now, we can tell you that over the coming weeks and months we will be announcing these exciting projects starring all of your favourite Oddworld characters.
“To work with the team at Oddworld has been amazing; being able to tap the minds of Lorne Lanning, Sherry McKenna and others has been fantastic,” said Just Add Water’s Managing Director Stewart Gilray.
“It’s almost symbiotic in that when something moves forward on any of the projects we just start chatting about new items, or what if we do this,” Gilray continued. “We’re all extremely excited to breathe life into the Oddworld universe and indeed to let it breathe life into us.”
Well, its fairly likely that one of the games will be coming to PSN, but I’m extremely excited for the return of Abe! It is important to note that they are working with Oddworld Inhabitants, and are not taking over, so put your pitchforks away!
