British developer Just Add Water has revealed that it is collaborating with Oddworld Inhabitants on "multiple projects across multiple platforms".

In an announcement on its website, JAW said that initial discussions took place in June 2009 and that while there are no details on the games yet, "over the coming weeks and months we will be announcing these exciting projects starring all of your favourite Oddworld characters".

"We're all extremely excited to breathe life into the Oddworld universe and indeed to let it breathe life into us," said JAW managing director Stewart Gilray, who also spoke about tapping into the minds of Oddworld creator Lorne Lanning and Sherry McKenna, among others.

The Oddworld series began with Abe's Oddysee in 1997 and grew to include Abe's Exoddus, Munch's Oddysee and the rather delightful Stranger's Wrath, which you can read about in our extensive retrospective.

Just Add Water's last game was PlayStation Network shooter Gravity Crash.
