Abe HD in the works at Just Add Water
While EGM’s 450th issue won’t be hitting news stands until February 14th, news has spread of an interview with Lorne Lanning in the magazine, in which he confirms the existence of a remake of Abe’s Odyssey, the first title in the seminal Oddworld series. The Facebook video games portal has a quote from the interview;
“Abe HD is going into production. It’s basically Abe’s Oddysee being redone in a 3D physics engine as a 2D side-scrolling platformer. So the way Just Add Water wants to approach it, we thought was very smart; they are not trying to reinvent any wheels. It’s like, ‘Can we make that experience in a new engine, with new tech, in the old way?’”
I’m afraid that this is all we know at the moment, perhaps when the issue arrives in mail boxes we’ll learn more. Keep your eyes on the site for more details when we get them.
