To Make More Oddworld, Just Add Water

Remember that loose talk of a new Oddworld game in development? It was true. Only things have changed and now there are multiple Oddworld projects hitting multiple platforms, courtesy of developer Just Add Water.

The developer of PlayStation Network and PSP game Gravity Crash is working with Oddworld Inhabitants and the brain of Lorne Lanning on several "exciting projects starring all of your favourite Oddworld characters", which they'll announce in the coming weeks and months. Yeah, it's an announcement of an announcement, but we'll take it!

Development on the unnamed Oddworld games has been underway for about a year, so if Just Add Water happens to show something at, say, Gamescom in August, it has the potential to be something playable.

The most recent game in the series was Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath, released in 2005 for the original Xbox.

    YAAAAAY!!!!!

    Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay

      I agree with this...

      +1 Sale Confirmed

    If it's 2D, then Yay... if it's 3D, then forget it

      Come on, now. Sure, Munch's Oddysee was terrible, but Stranger's Wrath was one of the best Xbox games made.

      I am somewhat wary about Just Add Water handling this, but hell. It'd Oddworld. I'm excited to finally hear some news after so long.

    Woohoo! I got a feeling something was up when Oddysee and Exoddus showed up on Steam a while back, then Exoddus on PSN.

    Munch terrible? I enjoyed it a lot, but bigkid has got a point - 2D's where its at.

    I never got to play Stranger's Wrath. I've been hoping against all hope that they release it for PSN. I'd even consider buying a 360 if it was available on Xbox Live.

    Best news I ever

      heard? :P

      Yes great news! Hopefully one of the projects is back to the roots of the PS1 games. I'd love a new Oddworld in all it's 2D glory with a HD makeover!

    If they do something like they did with New super mario bros. Update the graphics + New gameplay elements + old school 2d + More puzzles and humour = EPIC WIN!!!!

    Won't be released for PC I'm willing to bet. I still havn't played Munch's or Strangers Wrath because I've never owned an Xbox.

    :(

    I had some great times with the lovably hideous Oddworld games. The remembered good platforming and interesting design makes me hope these reboots are worthy.
