Years after Oddworld: Abe’s Oddyssey launched for the Sony PlayStation, Oddworld Inhabitants has released a PlayStation 4 reboot of the franchise with Oddworld: New ‘N’ Tasty.
To celebrate the launch of the remake, the developer has posted a video featuring the first 10 minutes of gameplay, and while New ‘N’ Tasty may not exactly push the PlayStation 4 to the limits in terms of graphics, fans of the original games will recognize many quality of life improvements to the core mechanics of the game.
New ‘N’ Tasty is a remake of the original Oddworld: Abe’s Oddyssey and follows the trials and travails of Abe just as before. Run, sneak, chant, and even fart your way through dozens of side-scrolling levels as you help Abe rescue his enslaved people – the Mudokons – from the greedy, corporate syndicate of the Glukkons and their meat-processing plant Rupture Farms.
The video shows the first 10 minutes of gameplay – without debate the easiest 10 minutes – but don’t let it fool you. Oddworld Inhabitants has saved all the original flare of Oddyssey, including the insanely punishing puzzle gameplay. The PlayStation 4 remake does boast improved graphics, new cutscenes, new speech, new gameplay features –
New ‘N’ Tasty launched on PlayStation 4 on Wednesday, July 23rd, and Oddworld Inhabitants has announced that a version of the remake is in development for PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, and PC with more details to be announced later.
