Abe's Oddysee HD Becomes New N' Tasty!

Perhaps proving all the good games have been taken, Oddworld Inhabitants and developer Just Add Water announce Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee New N' Tasty!, is the official title for their upcoming remake of Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee. Eurogamer has their explanation that the Abe's Oddysee HD title was not appropriate because it implies a sprucing up of an old game, as opposed to them "starting from nothing and rebuilding an entire game from scratch," which may slightly contradict their other point that: "We've not changed it. We've just modernised it because it's not a flip screen game any more." They offer a trailer of the game's presentation at the Eurogamer Expo, and the following explanation of the remake:

Lanning said the new 3D graphics mean JAW can take a "retro neo approach" to showing off the game world. All the FMVs from the original are now rendered in real-time using the game engine without breaks in the gameplay.

The level design and puzzles are 80-90 per cent the same as in the original. Gilray provided an example of a difference. "In the original game, the fifth screen into it, there was a sleeping Slig. When you walked into the screen he woke up. To reset it you just walked off screen and came back on screen again creeping. We don't have flip screens any more, so we've made it so he times out. Say he walks around for 10 seconds and you haven't moved, he won't have heard anything and will go back to sleep again.
