You may have seen New ‘n’ Tasty being announced at the E3 2013 Sony Conference as part of the indie lineup for the PlayStation 4. I recently visited Just Add Water Ltd. to have a chat about about many things, including this new game. This is so much more than a HD remake, they are re-doing everything, it’s almost a completely new game. I watched some of the all new cutscenes and then the game being played, I can never go back to the original now.

The amount of detail the developers are putting into this game is astounding. They even have an Oddworld superfan on staff to make sure everything is just right. Stay tuned to PS Nation for more on my visit and this new game.

Here is the full press release for the game:

The modern neostalgic re-creation of the first Oddworld Inhabitants PSX game from 1997, called Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty is coming to PlayStation®4, with a release date TBA 2014. The title marks the long-awaited return of Abe the Mudokon to Sony’s PlayStation® console, where the adventure began.

After a half-decade hiatus from making games, Oddworld Inhabitants is now a proudly independent publisher, working with Just Add Water (Developments) Ltd on the new title. This is only made possible by open, digital, self-publishing platforms like Sony’s PlayStation®Network. Powered by the Unity3D game engine, Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty makes the most of the new console’s hardware.

Oddworld Inhabitants and JAW have worked closely together since they started their partnership in 2010. After releasing Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD on PlayStation®3 to critical acclaim and working on updating Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee for multiple platforms, the work on New ‘n’ Tasty shows the relationship is a blossoming symbiosis that’s here to stay.

“We’re all excited by the opportunities for storytelling that the next generation of PlayStation® hardware can give Oddworld Inhabitants. It’s the perfect way for Abe to capture the hearts of new and old fans alike.” states Lorne Lanning, co-founder/co-owner of Oddworld Inhabitants, “We are extremely happy we have this close working relationship with Sony once again.”
