Oddworld: Soulstorm (TBA)

  • A new trailer just got released, so let's give this game its own thread!

    There was also this cinematic trailer not too long ago:

    Coming early 2020, after so many years of silence it's good to know it's coming!

    I really liked the original, as well as Munch's Odyssey on Xbox! It was such a gorgeous game at the time.

    Looks like they're adding survival and economy elements to this one. I kinda liked the "purity" of the original's puzzle-platforming gameplay but let's see what this change brings!

  • I thought Soulstorm was going to be a remake of the second PS1 game?
    Anyway nice to actually see it after Caddicuras talked about it maybe a year or so ago

  • Can't wait

  • @dmcmaster I saw this interview on the Game Informer show (which I highly recommend by the way) a few weeks ago:

    They explain what they're doing with the game, it's not an exact remake of the second game like New n' Tasty was.

  • I was very disappointed with "Oddworld: New N' Tasty". It didn't have an ounce of the atmosphere that the original game had. I am hoping that they can improve with this one.

  • Looks like they're teasing a shadow-drop, or at the very least a release date announcement, at the Game Awards.

    Still moderately hyped for this one, it looks like it's shaping up nicely. And it could give a little boost to my FantasyCritic!

  • Oddworld is one of my all time favorite franchises, so the possibility of the remake of 2 getting Shadow-dropped is very exciting, on top of a possible day-1 purchase. Having played New n Tasty, I know it will possibly be drastically different in feel from its inspiration but there really isn't anything comparable to the world and tone of the franchise that I have been able to turn to over the years.

    Picked up the original games on PS1 over a year ago, but the Polymega got delayed, so... I'll have to wait on those.

  • Spring 2021. Shit.

  • I swear we’ve watched the same trailer cut slightly differently the last three times we’ve been shown this game.

    As an Oddworld fan I’m dehyped. The marketing sucks.
