Stunning next-gen 3-D visuals

Lead our unlikely hero on his mission because if he doesn’t make it… Abe’s back on the menu!

What's New 'n' Tasty?

Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty is a ground-up remake of 1997′s Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee. While it follows the same story as the original game, it has all-new graphics, all-new sound and all-new controls, while maintaining the same classic gameplay as before.

For more insight, our news blog includes developer diaries, “Ingredients” articles, and screenshot comparisons.

Why is it called New 'n' Tasty?

In-game promotional signs for the next ‘tasty treat’ in Abe's Oddysee were labelled New ‘n’ Tasty. We ran a community poll to name the game (it was previously called Abe HD) and New ‘n’ Tasty was the runaway winner.

What's the aim of the game?

Lead character Abe is a lowly floor waxer at RuptureFarms, a large meat-processing factory on Oddworld. One day he discovers his kin are next on the menu, with a range of novelty meat products to be made from the race of Mudokons.

His initial goal is to escape the factory, but his destiny soon becomes much more important, and he’s charged with not only returning to RuptureFarms to bring the factory down, but also with rescuing the other Mudokons.

The ultimate goal is to finish the single player storyline and bring down RuptureFarms from within. Completionists will want to rescue every fellow Mudokon along the way, which will involve seeking out secret areas and completing optional puzzles.

Will the game be as difficult as Oddysee?

Oddysee was a tough game, so we've tried to make New 'n' Tasty playable by a wider range of gamers. We've done this by introducing difficulty levels, and whilst we'd recommend that most players opt for Normal on their first run, seasoned Oddworld fans would be most familiar with Hard, where bullets, teeth and steel are at their deadliest. In all difficulties, there are more generous checkpoints too.


Wikipedia:
Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty!, also known as Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee – New 'n' Tasty!, is a 2014 cinematic platformer video game developed by Just Add Water and published by Oddworld Inhabitants for the PlayStation 4 as a "ground-up remake" of Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee. The game was released in North America on July 22, 2014 and in Europe on July 23, 2014. Versions for Linux, Microsoft Windows and OS X were released on February 25, 2015. Versions for PlayStation 3 and Xbox One will be out in early March 2015. Versions for PlayStation Vita and Wii U are still in development but no definite release dates have been given.

Gameplay

In Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty, the player controls a Mudokon named Abe. Similar to the original, the gameplay is a sidescrolling platformer with an emphasis on puzzle solving, with New 'n' Tasty reimagined in a 2.5D graphical style.

Abe has the ability to talk to and direct other Mudokons with an enhanced GameSpeak feature and the characters will have more dialogue and responses when compared to the original game. The player's goal is to save all 299 Mudokon slaves at RuptureFarms which can be done by taking them to bird portals; several Mudokons are hidden in secret areas which often involve complex situations. The game has two endings depending on the number of Mudokons rescued by the game's finale.

Abe has no direct way of attacking and there are a variety of ways to die in the game. He has the ability to chant and can possess specific enemies called Sligs; Sligs lack Abe's physical finesse (they cannot jump, for example) but all wield firearms, temporarily changing gameplay. Other enemies cannot be possessed, and must be dealt with by solving the many puzzles in the game, and often involve setting up elaborate traps. Some enemies in the game must be outrun; in some levels Abe has a mount called Elum that helps in this. There are some areas in the game which require the player the memorize Abe's whistles, farts and Slig's BS and SM'BS commands to unlock electric fences, allow Mudokons to pull levers and platforms.

To make use of the online functionality, the remake now comes with leaderboards. The makers had observed fans of the original game making speedrun videos and competing with other people, and have enabled players to check the leaderboards for the fastest completion of each mode, the best overall time and how many online PlayStation Network members completed the game 100%.

Plot

Taking place on the titular Oddworld, much of the early and end-game takes place in RuptureFarms and its four "zulags", a meat processing plant where Abe used to work. Other locations range from RuptureFarms' stockyards and "Free-fire zone" to more environmental places such as the Monsaic Lines, Paramonia, and Scrabania. The two latter levels can be approached in either order and each feature a temple with multiple trials that must be completed by lighting a flintlock and finding the bell chime to unlock the exit door. After gaining the power to become Shrykull, Abe must return to RuptureFarms (which features higher security than before and is thus more difficult) to rescue the remaining Mudokons. The final level requires Abe rush to RuptureFarms' boardroom within two minutes.
