JAW is working with the original design document from Oddworld Inhabitants, yet plans to update the title for a more "casual rather than more intense" gameplay experience, JAW CEO Stewart Gilray confirmed. It will be fully 3D, and even though JAW is only "looking at" platforms right now, strong front-runners include iPad, Android tablets, Facebook, PC and Mac. Just don't expect it on PS3 and Xbox 360, as it works best with "touchscreen interfaces or mouse control direct."
Additionally, the developer has confirmed that it's also undertaking an HD remake of Munch's Oddysee. The game will be available on PS3 this October, coinciding with a PS3 Oddboxx bundle promotion containing all four Oddworld titles. An Xbox 360 release is currently up in the air, but if it does happen, JAW is hoping the Xbox 360 version will launch a month after the PS3 title.
