By arrancar - | Views: 9,317
Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty is the remake of Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee and the Linux release isn't far off.

Speaking on a podcast to Fragments of Silicon and covered by IGN the developers noted:
QuoteOddworld says that the PC, Mac, and Linux versions of the game are completed and will launch on Steam "as soon as possible.

Abe's back, and the original hero's about to face his oddest challenge yet!

A mudokon chosen by the fickle finger of fate, Abe was a first class Floor-Waxer for RuptureFarms who was catapulted into a life of adventure.

Late one night he overheard plans from his boss, Molluck the Glukkon, to turn Abe and his fellow Mudokons into Tasty Treats as a final effort to rescue Molluck's failing meatpacking empire!Can Abe change the fate of thousands and rescue the Mudokons?

Can he escape the dark recesses of RuptureFarms and the desolate, uninviting, and downright terrifying surrounding environment?Lead our unlikely hero on his mission because if he doesn't make it...Abe’s back on the menu!

As a big fan of the original and I have been waiting quite some time! In Abe we trust. Article taken from

For sure. But according to the quote above the PC versions are complete and so it would make sense to push them out before the holidays, since that will almost certainly benefit both sales and their chances at awards.
