‘Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty’ Devs Want to Tackle a ‘Metal Gear Solid’ Remake

by Joseph Leray

Just Add Water, the British studio developing a handful of Oddworld Inhabitants projects, are the first studio to publicly throw their names into Hideo Kojima’s hat following yesterday’s news that he was actively seeking third-party developers to remake “Metal Gear Solid” using the Fox Engine.

Kojima explained that parts of “Metal Gear Solid” would need to be updated and modernized, especially since he would want the hypothetical project to use Kojima Productions’ proprietary Fox Engine. What’s funny is that this is, uh, pretty much exactly what Just Add Water are doing to “Oddworld: Abe’s Odyssey.”

Here’s the bulk of their open letter to Kojima:

We at Just Add Water feel ideally positioned to do the remake justice for several reasons:

  1. We have experience working with legendary IP (Oddworld Inhabitants) and treating the subject matter with the respect it deserves.
  2. Many members of our team are huge ’Metal Gear’ fans, with very good knowledge of the source material.
  3. We really, really want to do it.
