Abe's Oddysee being remade from scratch

Oddworld Inhabitants has announced that it's scrapped plans to redo Abe's Oddysee in high definition, instead completely rebuilding the game from scratch. 

According to the game series' Facebook page, this is going to be an all-new title rather than a reworking of the PlayStation One classic. Whether the gameplay will change or retain any sidescrolling puzzle-platforming remains to be seen, but details are due to come a little later in 2012. 

"We decided to reboot it, not just an HD update to the original PS1 title, this is a NEW game," said the company. "It will be getting it's first public showing LATER this year, with a release date of NEXT summer (2013)."

The original announcement was interpreted by most to be a complete reboot, but Oddworld Inhabitants clarified to say the game would still be the original rather than a dramatic new game. The original game will be used as the blueprint, but the final release will not simply be the old code spruced up. It'll be all-new assets. 

Not quite as exciting as a brand new game, but I'll take it!
