Yay! Abe is back!
While still many years from completion, Maxis co-founder Jeff Braun revealed to the Cord Weekly that he is working with original series creators Oddworld Inhabitants on a new installment in the franchise. During a seminar at the Wilfrid Laurier University yesterday, Braun revealed that the new title may take the episodic route, but nothing was certain yet, although he did say that the new Oddworld game will have a revolutionary, cinematic quality 3D animation system rivaling that of CG motion pictures.

I always thought these games looked cool but I don't think I've actually played them.

Are they standard platform jumpers or do they have realistic movement like Flashback, Another World and Blackthorne?

The original 2D ones were great, the last two for the Xbox sucked ass so who knows if they still have it to make the quality they use to have.

Didn't the Abe games use motion blur? I mean not the DX9 3D type we have now, but I for some reason remember the faster moving guards being blurred.

Yeah... I enjoyed the sidescrolling ones... really hope this new one is going back to that.

I doubt it. Nothing can be 2D these days.

I always worry when I hear "will have a revolutionary, cinematic quality 3D animation system rivaling that of CG motion pictures."

They are making a revamped street fighter 2, called street fighter 2 turbo HD remix for xbox live, or have they finished it?
