The darkest entry in the series yet.
Oddworld Inhabitants have announced'Oddworld: Soulstorm', a sequel to the well-regarded 'New 'n' Tasty'. The new game will be out in the latter half of 2017, and looks to tell a far darker story than previous entries. The game is being developed by Oddworld Inhabitants in California and the UK in conjunction with Frima Studio. The developer describes the game as follows:
Having defeated Molluck The Glukkon, his former boss and RuptureFarms’ meanest inhabitant, Abe soon finds himself – along with 300 newly emancipated Mudokons – without food, water or a place to call home. Stranded alone in the desert, they find solace in a strange new brew – a delicious drink that has insidious ramifications for their newfound freedom.
Witness Abe’s horrifying conflict with a terrifying new machination.
A fresh narrative – a complete story retake inspired by our original tale.
A big visual and cinematic leap aiming to break new ground for Oddworld.
Intelligent new mechanics, twisted new devices enabling highly explosive deviousness.
A dark parable that tells an epic tale of a volatile society pushed to its limits.
I really loved 'New 'n' Tasty', it reignited my interest in a series I'd not touched in years. While I'm slightly hesitant toward the idea of a darker narrative, I'm hopeful the developers can make something great. No platforms have been announced, but it's a safe bet to assume it'll hit at least PS4 and PC.
