"Hello." "Hello." "Follow Me." "Okay."

Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee is my favorite video game of all time, and Abe one of my favorite all-time characters, so when Iain forwarded me the news this morning that "a ground-up remake of the much-loved original Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee" will launch on Xbox One on March 27, I literally exclaimed aloud with overwhelming joy.
Marking the first outing of an Oddworld game on Xbox since Stranger's Wrath in 2005, New 'n' Tasty is a ground-up remake of the much-loved original Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee, developed by Just Add Water (Development) Ltd.

A cinematic platform adventure, New 'n' Tasty tells the tale of Abe, a hapless Mudokon who learns that his fellow meat factory co-workers are to be the main ingredients in the company's next line of tasty treats.

Abe must escape RuptureFarms and beyond, liberating as many of his fellow workers as he can. Along the way, he'll learn the secrets of his civilization and journey across perilous lands filled with dangerous creatures and lethal traps before returning to the sinister meat factory to put right the injustices faced by his long suffering species.
I loooooove that this is a remake of the original, because one of the things I adored about the original was the theme of resistance and liberation. I am SO EXCITED to play this! Yayayayayay!
