I spent an ungodly amount of time in my late teens playing the Oddworld games on the original PlayStation. The gameplay was so bizarrely original, and the world was so unlike anything else out there, that I would get hopelessly sucked in.
In fact, when I had friends over for game and pizza nights, we would end up completely oblivious to the passage of time, often looking up at the clock and realizing we had to be back at work in less than three hours.
So you can imagine that when I found out that Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee New ‘n’ Tasty, an HD remake of the original Abe’s Oddysee, was a thing, I pretty much flipped. Yes, this is on my short list of must-own game remakes.
A new trailer was released at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) last week, and it’s showing that New ‘n’ Tasty is looking, well, new and tasty. But don’t just sit here reading my rambling words all day long; watch the trailer for yourself below.
