Oddworld Remake Subtitled New N' Tasty at Eurogamer Expo
Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD

 

The upcoming remake of Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee has received a new subtitle. It will now be called Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee New N’ Tasty!.

 

The game will be totally overhauled. Its graphics will be created in full 3D, though the gaming is still primarily that of a 2D platformer. The levels are continuous now, with flip screen scrolling completely gone. In addition, the camera will move to dramatically show off the environment as Abe moves throughout it. Essentially, the camera will swing back to let you see what is ahead of you in order to let you plan ahead.

 

According to the design team, the level design will be eighty to ninety percent like the original. Most of the changes have to do with the old flip screen mechanic. For example, enemies that woke up when you entered a screen now respond to movement. The game is essentially being modernized to fit current technology.
