Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee HD getting full reboot

Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee HD is going back to the drawing board. Rather than a prettied-up version of the original, the developer has announced it is starting the game over from scratch using the original as a blueprint.

Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee is getting its own HD version, but fans will have to wait a little longer to play it. Developer Oddworld Inhabitants has announced that the game will get a full reboot rather than just some HD visuals, and as a result won't be out until next summer.

The developer announced the plans on its Facebook page (via GameInformer). It stresses that this will be a new game, to be shown off later this year. It later clarified that while this project is starting "from scratch," it's using the original game as a blueprint.

If you simply can't wait for more Oddworld, plenty more is on the way. Both the Vita version of Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath and the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee HD are targeting June releases.

      Well that seems kind of pointless. FIx it up and release it on mobiles.

        or hold off, put some extra elbow grease into it and make a quality product on a more suitable platform.

      I loved the original, so I'm pretty excited about this. I mean yeah, I'd like a new one too, but hey, I'll totally take this.
