Almost two years after Just Add Water and Oddworld Inhabitants released the HD upgrade for Stranger’s Wrathon the PS Vita and they are now back with a re-mastered version of their first 3D Oddworld title, which was originally released in 2001.
Oddworld Inhabitant’s Community Manager, Will Bunce-Edwards wrote on the EU Blog to explain a little more about the game.
“Abe is back after starring in the first two Oddworld games, but now he’s playing second fiddle to a new hero called Munch. Munch is a Gabbit, and the last of his kind, and as their guardian angel it’s your destiny to bring his species back from the brink of extinction.
Munch and Abe’s destination is Vykkers Labs, a floating pharmaceutical station running all sorts of grizzly experiments on Oddworld’s cutest critters in the name of a better fabric softener. It’s here they’ll find not only stockpiled Mudokon eggs on sale to factory owners as cheap labor, but also the last can of Gabbiar, the disgusting delicacy that is raw Gabbit eggs.
On their way they’ll infiltrate factories and bankrupt the CEOs by donating to a corrupt charity that’s funding their latest Oddysee.
Munch’s Oddysee carries many similar themes and mechanics to Abe’s Oddysee, including the planned extinction of a species, rescuing slaves and test subjects, and the ability to take control of your enemies, but expands massively with the option to switch characters at any time, pick up and throw objects, swim in water, and use new GameSpeak to incite slave rebellions, native uprisings and lab rat revolutions.”
Oddworld Inhabitants have stated that the game will be in English only with no other languages supported. It will also be compatible with the PlayStation TV.
