Lorne Lanning had some interesting information to share in his talk with Eurogamer at the annual Game Developers Conference.
Apparently, for Oddworld: Abe’s Exoddus to be remade, Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty has to sell at least 250,000 copies. Going a bit further, if New ‘n’ Tasty manages to sell over 500,000 copies, a totally new Oddworld game will be possible.
Lanning confirmed that New ‘n’ Tasty would retail for $30 when it launches later this year across multiple platforms. He also added:
“This game will play better, look better, and you’ll have more fun with for more hours of play than games you’re paying $60 for. If this had a publisher, the price would be higher and they’d be calling in triple A.”
Finally, Lanning also revealed that New ‘n’ Tasty had a budget of “nearly $5 million with about $2 million out of pocket.”
