Oddworld dev to premier new game

JAW revives shelved nineties title.

Oddworld developer Just Add Water will premier a new game at this month's GameCityNights event in Nottingham.

CEO Stewart Gilray will unveil Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD and premiere a game Eurogamer has been told is the revival of a shelved title from the nineties.

Gilray will then lead a talk by Oddworld creator Lorne Lanning, who will discuss the much-loved series.

Stranger's Wrath was an Xbox first-person shooter Eurogamer awarded 7/10 in 2005.

JAW's HD remake adds 720p visuals, more character detail, normal mapping, self-shadowing, re-mastered dialogue, Move support and other undisclosed bonus material.

It is the first Oddworld game for PlayStation hardware in over a decade - Munch's Odyssey and Stranger's Wrath were both originally Xbox games.

Lanning, meanwhile, has confirmed plans to create an HD remake of classic platformer Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee.

"It's basically Abe's Oddysee being redone in a 3D physics engine as a 2D side-scrolling platformer," Lanning explained earlier this year.

The event takes place at Antenna, Beck Street, NG1 1EQ, from 6-11pm.
