Abe's Oddysee: New N' Tasty won't 'sell out' for Xbox One

Jun 14 // Jim Sterling
"It’s a different level of perspective. Is it ridiculous? I guess it depends on what seat you're sitting in. But I think right now Wall Street is seeing something else that’s ridiculous and we’re seeing it reflected in public companies’ stock values. "Who’s in touch with their audience? And who seems out of touch with their audience? All we know is we’ve tried to get our games on their platform ... I've had people tell me, 'dude, just go up there, you're losing millions of dollars.' You know what? Oddworld wasn't built on selling out." Good for him, sticking to his guns. While Xbox One continues to alienate all but major publishers, Nintendo and Sony have ample opportunity to capitalize. We already saw this at E3 when Sony showboated a considerable collection of indie titles -- New N' Tasty among them. With the independent scene growing to become such an exciting space, it seems utterly stupid that Microsoft would burn so many bridges, but its intent is clear -- it's seen how popular indie gaming is getting, and like everything else, it would like to dictate terms and control how that sector of the market operates.  I'm thinking Microsoft will find few indie developers enjoy being dictated to. Right now, Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty isn't coming to Xbox One or Xbox 360 [Eurogamer]

Lorne Lanning explains why latest Oddworld tells Xbox to go home
Abe's Oddysee: New N' Tasty is coming to the Wii U and PlayStation 4, but neither the Xbox 360 nor the Xbox One will get a lick of Abe's meat. Lorne Lanning's reasoning is simple -- Oddworld doesn't sell out, and an indie has...

A glimpse into the future of Oddworld

Mar 14 // Fraser Brown
It was a remake of Abe's Exoddus, in my humble opinion the greatest game in the series, that got folks' juices flowing the heaviest, followed by a brand new game, then the unfinished titles. "We were a little surprised that Squeek’s Oddysee wasn’t higher up the result," Gilray confessed. "We knew Exoddus would be pretty high up there, but to see it where it ended up was nice." It turns out that the studio has a lot to work with, as the original Hand of Odd design document is in their possession, along with a working version of Fangus for the original Xbox. They've also got the source code for both of Abe's adventures. "We’ve got the source code to both Abe’s Oddysee and Abe’s Exoddus. However, [we] don’t have final PSone code for Oddysee, and no PC code, but we have final PC code for Exoddus, and no PSone code. So we’ve got a mix," Gilray revealed.  So it looked like Exoddus is the next step, but Oddworld Inhabitants' Lorne Lanning, the series' creator has plenty of "crazy ideas," and with complete control over the IP, the two studios could really take the franchise in any direction. It's exciting stuff, to be sure. Check out the full interview for more information on the remake and the future of Oddworld. What's next for Oddworld? Just Add Water speaks [VG24/7]
