Developer Oddworld Inhabitants was hard at work at releasing a HD remake of the original Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee. Now, the team has decided to completely reboot the game.
"We decided to reboot it, not just an HD update to the original PS1 title, this is a NEW game. It will be getting it's first public showing LATER this year, with a release date of NEXT summer (2013)," the developer said through Facebook.
The team later clarified, "It is a remake of the original PS1 title, however we have started it from scratch using the original as a blueprint… Ok?"
