A Eurogamer Expo reveal, Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee New N’ Tasty! is the name of the HD remake of the 1997 PSOne game from developer Just Add Water.
Discussing the remake with Eurogamer, Just Add Water’s Stewart Gilray laid out some of the planned updates for New N’ Tasty! including revamped lighting and an adjusted camera system which will keep keep up with Abe’s movements across the screen given that the action is no longer framed in the boxy 4:3 style. Speaking of the action, about 80-90% of the platformer’s puzzles will remain intact along with its level design, with some changes in place to accommodate the removal of the flip screen.
The remake will also include new 3D graphics, giving the game what Just Add Water describes as a “retro neo approach” to the visuals. The new look has been applied to the FMVs from the original, which are now rendered in real time using the current engine.
Other changes include a quick save system, some gamer friendly puzzle modifications, and play balancing elements.
We can expect New N’ Tasty to hit the PS3, Vita, 360, and PC next fall.
