Oddworld Inhabitants’ Lorne Lanning has announced that Just Add Water (the Yorkshire-based development team behind the upcoming PSN remake of Stranger’s Wrath) are developing a HD version of Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee. Speaking to EGM, He had the following to say on the subject:

“Abe HD is going into production,”

“It’s basically Abe’s Oddysee being redone in a 3D physics engine as a 2D side-scrolling platformer. So the way Just Add Water wants to approach it, we thought was very smart; they are not trying to reinvent any wheels. It’s like, ‘Can we make that experience in a new engine, with new tech, in the old way?’”

The return of Abe is great to hear and exciting news, but let’s just hope that at least one of Just Add Water’s four unannounced Oddworld projects is a brand new game.
