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 trailers depict 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.
