Sony is bringing one of its classic titles back for the PS4. Called “the modern neostalgic re-creation of the first Oddworld Inhabitants PSX game,” its a throwback to a simpler time, dressed up for a new generation.
A remake of the 1997 classic, Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty is coming to PS4 sometime in 2014. It has been over 5 years since the developers made their last game, Oddworld Inhabitants is now a proudly independent publisher. The team is working with Just Add Water on the new title. The publisher said that this was only possible by the “open, digital, self-publishing platforms” like Sony’s PSN. The game will be powered by the Unity3D game engine.
“We’re all excited by the opportunities for storytelling that the next generation of PlayStation® hardware can give Oddworld Inhabitants. It’s the perfect way for Abe to capture the hearts of new and old fans alike.” states Lorne Lanning, co-founder/co-owner of Oddworld Inhabitants, “We are extremely happy we have this close working relationship with Sony once again.”
New title Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty will be out 2014, on the PS4, published by Oddworld Inhabitants and developed by Just Add Water (Developments) Ltd.
