Overnight we revealed that Just Add Water were working with Oddworld Inhabitants on some Oddworld games. This morning we’ve had a brief chat with the man behind Just Add Water, Stewart Gilray, on what the deal is all about, and have copied the short interview in full below.
TheSixthAxis: How long have you been working with Oddworld Inhabitants?
Stewart Gilray: We started talking in June 2009.
TSA: How many games are in the pipeline?
SG: Can’t say at the moment I’m afraid.
TSA: Can you reveal which formats any of the games are for?
SG: Not yet, soon, but not yet..
TSA: Will they be new games, or ports of existing ones?
SG: That’s extremely difficult to answer, so I’m not going to.
TSA: What’s your personal favourite Oddworld game?
SG: The first two Abe games are actually 2 of my all-time favourite games.
TSA: What drew you to the Oddworld series as the next project for Just Add Water?
A chance meeting last year.
TSA: Are you excited about the portable release of Gravity Crash, and do you have any further plans for the game after that?
SG: Extremely excited, after all it’s out next week. We’re extremely proud of the game. We don’t want the recent “Oddworld” announcement to take away from the Gravity Crash Portable release on PSN next week.
Short answers, sure, but he’s a busy man and there’s not a huge amount that’s currently public. We’re looking forward to what’s coming for Oddworld fans as much as everyone else, though, so keep your eyes on TheSixthAxis and the Just Add Water website for all the news.
