Developer Just Add Water continue their campaign for the next generation, following on from Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty!‘s release on the PS4. After the success of the reissue of Oddworld: Abe’s Odyssey on the PS4, the developers have their sights on the rest of the platforms. Sadly, Wii U owners will be going without for a little while. Oddworld Inhabitants announced via press release on Jan 15 that Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty! will be releasing for Windows, Mac, and even Linux on February 25. The Xbox One and PS3 re-releases are planned later in early March.
Every version of Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty! will have the advantageous post-launch improvements and tweaks retroactively added to the PS4 release, including the old-school control settings. The new re-releases will still have Quiksave and Quikload functions, as well as the usual bells and whistles like achievements and online leaderboards. You can speedrun the game and compare your times and scores to others around the world if you are so inclined.
The Steam version of OddWorld: New ‘n’ Tasty! will make use of the Steam cloud save system and will be available for $20.00. Those who pre-purchase it will receive a further 10% discount. Publisher/developer Oddworld Inhabitants have assured game sites that the pre-purchase date and specs for the Windows, Mac, and Linux versions will be available soon.
The new Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty! has had input from the art directors of the original Abe’s Odyssey team, as well as music composed by Oddworld alumni Michael Bross. Oddworld Inhabitants and Just Add Water have tweaked and worked on the game since its release on PS4, including new game improvements and explorable areas while managing to keep the game as true to the original titles as possible. They’re sure fans new and old will enjoy it.
