Our earliest memory of the Oddworld franchise comes courtesy of a short PSone demo based on the very first game - and at the time, we thought it was absolutely mental. In fact, we still think that Oddworld is mental, but we've grown more accustomed to the weird and wonderful property over the years.

2015 saw the release of Oddworld: New 'N' Tasty - a remake of the original - and now, publisher Oddworld Inhabitants is teasing what seems to be another reimagining of sorts. Apparently due to release next year, Oddworld: Soulstorm is described as "a fresh narrative - a complete story retake inspired by our original tale" - the original tale being the second title in the series, Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus.

Sadly, that's just about all we know right now. The upcoming project has a teaser website, but there are no screenshots or trailers to pick apart. With that in mind, we'll hopefully hear more about the game as we move through 2016.

Are you ready for another trip into the twisted world of Abe and his fellow Mudokons? Try not to get blended into meaty chunks in the comments section below.
