As you may know, the Oddworld Inhabitants have announced that the Wii U version of New ‘n’ Tasty will be playable at this year’s PAX Prime, which will run from 28th to 31st August in Seattle, Washington in the United States country. Play Oddworld.
The New ‘n’ Tasty is a remake of the original game Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee and developed and published by Oddworld Inhabitants and released backs in 1997 on the consoles PlayStation, PC, and DOS.
The game is also expected to come to Sony’s PlayStation Vita, with no release dates for either version announced just yet.
According to Wikipedia;
“Oddworld is a video game series and the fictional universe, created by developers Oddworld Inhabitants under the direction of Lorne Lanning. The series has been released on various platforms such as PlayStation, Xbox, PlayStation 3, Game Boy, Windows and Wii U.
Throughout games set in the Oddworld universe, the player’s character goes on a quest to defend Oddworld’s ecosystem from endangerment by industrial corporations.
Oddworld is the name of the planet on which all four Oddworld Inhabitants games are based, extant in another dimension. The planet was originally described as ten times the size of Earth; but Oddworld Inhabitants’ president and creative developer Lorne Lanning has since explained that Oddworld’s surface area is ten times the size of Earth’s, given that Oddworld is predominantly a dry-land planet and Earth is predominantly water-covered. It has its own sun and thus its own orbit resulting in a unique clock and calendar.
At some point, the planet suffered huge natural turmoils that resulted in volcanic crusts forming a new layer upon the entire planet. When that crust collapsed, it created giant thousand-foot craters all over the planet. The planet has a total of three layers, each with its own climate, temperature, and gravitational levels. The giant craters were then used by the various Oddworld species to house their cities, whose tips could be seen protruding above the crust surface when looking across the landscape.
Only one of Oddworld’s continents has been featured in the games—Mudos—and only a tiny fraction of Mudos has been seen in-game. The journeys of Abe through Abe’s Oddysee, Abe’s Exoddus, and Munch’s Oddysee take him through that small portion, composed of fields, jungles, deserts, caverns, and swamps. Much of the planet is decimated by industrialist species for their own profit; this is represented by city-sized factories and mass transit systems.”
