First Look At Oddworld Abe’s Oddysee HD

Here's the debut screenshot for Oddworld Abe's Oddysee HD, the hi-def remake of the 1997 PlayStation classic. The game will be a remake from the ground up, apparently, with both 2D graphics and 3D gameplay.

    I wonder how much the game play will be affected by these 3d mechanics

    2D graphics and 3D gameplay? I hope that's just a typo and it's meant to be the other way around.

    "2D graphics and 3D gameplay"

    I would rather they leave the gameplay alone and just update the graphics.

    The graphics are actually 3D but positioned in a 2D perspective (similar as to how Blade Kitten was) .

    They've actually said that multiple times on their Facebook page in response to people.

    While this looks good, I think I'd prefer them to make a NEW Oddworld game.

    What ever happened to that quintology they were planning? They only got 2 games into it:

    Abe's Oddysee (first in quintology)
    Abe's Exoddus (bonus game, not part of quintology)
    Munch's Oddysee (second in quintology)
    Stranger's Wrath (another bonus game, not part of quintology)

    Come on guys, I wanna see the other games that were planned!

      Wasn't financial successful enough for their publisher as I understand it.

      They are coming... maybe... but not for awhile...

      Because they became idiots (by dropping Abe as the protagonist)

      The move to 3d killed the series that was known for its amazing 2d art.

    I can't wait, I can't wait, I can't wait. I love the original 2D Oddysee games - one of the few PSOne games where the graphics matter nothing whatsoever - so getting them re-released with new visuals and identical gameplay (fingers crossed) is just perfect. Surround sound as well - the ambience you can achieve by placing sound in the virtual foreground / background of a 2D game is utterly engrossing. See Limbo for more information.
    I can't wait.

    that screenshot looks the same as the version i had on my phone lol

    Cant believe its already been 15 years.
