Abe’s Oddysee HD Shown By Just Add Water

Earlier today, we met Lorne Lanning and Stewart Gilray for a chat. It was awesome, we had a beer and got a sneaky peek at the Abe’s Oddysee HD gameplay footage they were about to show to the the world at Eurogamer. There’ll be a video interview from us in a day or two but in the meantime you can get a look at the footage below.

In the interests of full disclosure, I should say that we’re quite friendly with JAW and that Lorne Lanning was one of my game design heroes when I was still young enough to need to save up pocket money to buy his games. Now that’s out of the way, Abe’s Oddysee HD looks absolutely amazing. Here, have a look.


And, for those of you who weren’t able to get to the Eurogamer Expo, or weren’t able to get into the developer session they hosted, here’s the recorded stream – it starts at around 14:45.



  1. That looks amazing I can’t wait to get my hands on it.

  2. You know what I love? The fact that when I look at those stills they look, at least in my mind, exactly how I viewed the game when I played it back in the day. :)

    • I felt exactly the same! Although we know this is a better looking version, the old one had us seeing this with the imagination. Great stuff :)

  3. Looks lovely

  4. The PSV version of this will be a day one, really.

  5. Never really played these back in the day but may have to get the classics on Vita as likely far cheaper than HD version. If the HD version comes to Vita though I couod be tempted to go for the shinier one. Any news on this or likely to be PS3 only?

    • It is coming to PS3, Vita, Xbox 360 and PC.

      • Cheers for reply. May hold off on psone classic then.

  6. I was like 8 when this came out and had absolutely no idea what to do but then again, kids actually played outside, so I just wanted to play outside as soon my mum let me, nowadays kids just wanna get home and get on the 360 or PS3 lol.

  7. looks great, lovely smooth animation.
    quite a step up from the old ps1 version.

    only one question remains though, can he still fart on command? ^_^

    don’t tell me you didn’t have a laugh at that in the original.

    • I think he can, if you check out image 7 it states ” t in in your pants is stricty f ”
      That’s likely a choice of fart, shit or bolt with the last word probably forbidden. :P

  8. Never played the first game… omg.

  9. Is the Vita version coming on the same date as the PS3? We’re still waiting for Munch’s Odyssee HD on Vita…

  10. Can’t wait to play this again. Never had the Original game, just played on a mates. Do we know when its planned to be out?
