Hello, Oddworld fans! It’s been a little while since we’ve been here on PlayStation.Blog talking about our games, but we’re delighted to finally share the first details of our upcoming PlayStation Vita game — Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty — and explain exactly what we’ve been doing in making this version of Abe the Mudokon’s adventure.
Hello! Twenty years ago — way back in 1994 — we at Oddworld Inhabitants started working on our first video game, which originally had the name of “SoulStorm.” It was later retitled to the name Oddworld fans now know best: “Abe’s Oddysee.” A story-based atmospheric cinematic platformer, Oddysee would go on to define the Oddworld brand — humor, epic art, great playability, and a plot that resonated far deeper than it appeared on the surface.
Starting things off on PS4 is Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee — New ‘n’ Tasty! This side-scrolling adventure reboots the PlayStation classic with new visuals, new sound, enhanced controls, and even more dark humor than before. Also coming to the PS4 lineup is Valiant Hearts: The Great War.
In Alf’s Escape you will once again play as Abe on a daring mission to rescue Alf, the fez-donning, tea-drinking Mudokon we first met in Abe’s Exoddus. It takes place in a completely new, never-before-seen area of RuptureFarms, features all new challenges and puzzles, and sees Abe lead Alf to freedom through a series of grueling death traps.
