Gravity Crash Dev Just Add Water Reviving Oddworld Series

Just Add Water, the developer behind the PSN and PSP game Gravity Crash, said this week it's working with Lorne Lanning's Oddworld Inhabitants to create new games based on the 12-year-old Oddworld series. J.A.W. said in a post on its website that the studio has been "working extremely closely" with Oddworld Inhabitants, the developer that created the Oddworld universe. The partnership took off after brief discussions in June 2009, the post said. J.A.W. did not go into specifics of new Oddworld games, but said it would reveal more details in the coming weeks and months about "projects starring all of your favorite Oddworld characters." "To work with the team at Oddworld has been amazing; being able to tap the minds of Lorne Lanning, Sherry McKenna and others has been fantastic," said J.A.W. managing director Stewart Gilray. He added, "It’s almost symbiotic in that when something moves forward on any of the projects we just start chatting about new items, or what if we do this. We’re all extremely excited to breathe life into the Oddworld universe and indeed to let it breathe life into us." The Oddworld video game series debuted in 1997 with the well-regarded Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee for PlayStation and PC. Other titles in the series include Oddworld: Abe's Exodus and Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. The last Oddworld game was 2005's Xbox title Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath.
