Oddworld Inhabitants has announced that a new Oddworld game, subtitled Soulstorm, is currently in development. Along with the announcement, the publisher revealed handful of story details.
"There was a deeper, darker, and more sinister story that we never got to tell," said series creator Lorne Lanning. "Soulstorm gives us the opportunity to flesh out more meat on the bones of an original spine, but re-tell the fable from a very different angle."
The game will take place after the events Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty. After defeating Molluck The Glukkon and saving the Mudokons, Abe and his brethren find themselves without food, water or a place to call home. Stranded alone in the desert, they find solace in a strange new brew - a delicious drink that has insidious ramifications for their newfound freedom.
Oddworld: Soulstorm releases in 2017. Platforms have yet to be revealed.
