Just Add Water doesn’t want to make its own decisions any more. The Oddworld developer has thrown open the doors, asking you to decide which game you would like to see developed next. The online poll contains ten options, ranging from HD remakes to “something completely new” and even the super-specific “something on mobile”.
According to the poll:
The team at JAW are hard at work making amazing things happen in Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee New ‘n’ Tasty as we speak. There’s still lots to do, but once it’s out the door, the Oddworld is our oyster! So, we’re interested in your opinion on what should happen next.
It’s not quite as simple as a popular consensus, however – but your vote really does count, and really will help impact on just which game is made next. It’s a simple matter of telling the developers “which concept has you stoked the most”, and clicking a button. Easy.
Spoiler alert: The HD remake of Abe’s Exoddus is currently in the lead, but only just. Gamers also are very interested in “Something completely new on Oddworld”. Other options include previously cancelled games like The Brutal Ballad of Fangus Klot, Sligstorm, Oddworld: Squeek’s Oddysee, and the once-anticipated RTS, The Hand of Odd.
With the “New ‘n’ Tasty” HD edition of Abe’s Oddysee due out a little later this year, it’s nice to see that there’s still more Odd to come. Go vote now and may the best game win!
