leave a comment »

Just when you thought you’ve seen your last Mudokon, comes the news that after nearly five years since the last Oddworld title, new Oddworld titles are in development for multiple formats.

Just Add Water, the developers behind successful PSN shooter Gravity Crash, are the code outfit in charge of rejuvenating the Oddworld brand.

No real details are available right now, but the mere confirmation of new Oddworld titles being development is superbly awesome.

Yes, superbly awesome.

The spiel from Just Add Water’s website can be seen below, with a link at the bottom of this article:

It’s with a huge amount of pride that we can announce that for the past 12 months we have been working extremely closely with the fantastic people at Oddworld Inhabitants, from what started off as brief discussions in June 2009, to now working on multiple projects, across multiple platforms.

Whilst we cannot go into specifics right now, we can tell you that over the coming weeks and months we will be announcing these exciting projects starring all of your favourite Oddworld characters.

“To work with the team at Oddworld has been amazing; being able to tap the minds of Lorne Lanning, Sherry McKenna and others has been fantastic,” said Just Add Water’s Managing Director Stewart Gilray.

“It’s almost symbiotic in that when something moves forward on any of the projects we just start chatting about new items, or what if we do this,” Gilray continued. “We’re all extremely excited to breathe life into the Oddworld universe and indeed to let it breathe life into us.”
