Oddworld: Soulstorm is an upcoming Platform Game developed by Oddworld Inhabitents, and the sixth entry in Oddworld, slated for release in 2020. It will be a re-imagining of Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus as it was originally envisioned, as opposed to a straight remake like New 'n' Tasty was for Abe's Oddysee.
The game provides examples of:
- Denial of Diagonal Attack: Averted for your enemies, the Sligs, as the trailer clearly shows them shooting diagonally downwards from the upper platforms, which has already caused much consternation for the long-time players in the comments.
- Item Crafting: The trailer outright refers to looting, battling and crafting their way.
- Nightmarish Factory: The trailer outright describes the setting as an "industrial hell". It's quite justified, too, considering that those factories are driven by practically naked slaves like Abe, until he ends up starting a rebellion.
- Scenery Gorn: Much like the previous game, but Soulstorm's trailer extends it to a shipping container sorting plant, which despite its mundane function, still feels ominous and oppressive, with exposed scaffolding and with jets of flame blasting from just about anywhere.
