Here we have Abe as he will Appear in Oddworld: Soulstorm.
As we can see, a tremendous amount of detail has gone into making the pivotal character of Abe more realistic and attuned with the increased dark nature of the game. The new model remains faithful to the classic appearance, but also brings some new things to the table.
Quite Frankly im loving what Oddworld has done to Abe’s design, as i think it is a step in the right direction while also being greatly faithful. Oddworld has also released this render in many sizes to be used as wallpapers/cover photos.
“During our recent presentation at EGX in the UK, we unveiled a series of character portraits. These beautiful images show the new levels of depth and individuality in the main cast of Oddworld: Soulstorm. We had a total of three Mudokons and four Glukkons to show, and we’re going to present them, one each day, here so that those who were not able to attend the presentation in person can also get a good look at our new cast.”
“Where else would we start but with our star and main protagonist, Abe?”
“As you can see, there’s been quite an upgrade on the level of detail in our hapless hero. New facial details allow us to show a much greater depth of emotion and nuanced expression. Hopefully that makes you care more deeply about the lovable klutz as you see him attempt to navigate the hazardous environments of Oddworld!”
