Oddworld creator, Lorne Lanning has hinted at a brand new Oddworld game if his latest creation, New ‘n Tasty, can sell 500,000 copies.
Speaking to Eurogamer at GDC, Lanning also said if he could move 250,000 copies of New ‘n Tasty – a remake of Abe’s Oddysee – a remake of Abe’s Exxodus would be on the cards.
“If I’m doing a new Oddworld game, I’m not going to do it for $2 million (R21.5m). I might do it for five or six,” he said. “People keep asking me, ‘Why don’t you Kickstart Oddworld? You could get at least $1 or $2 million.’ And I’m like, ‘What would I do with a couple million on Kickstarter? On a new Oddworld title?’ Not much.”
Lanning said New ‘n Tasty would retail for 30$ (R323.00) when it was released, and promises a “quality” experience for the price.
“This game will play better, look better, and you’ll have more fun with more hours of play than games you’re paying $60 (R646.00) for,” said Lanning.
“If this had a publisher, the price would be higher and they’d be calling it a triple A.”
