Oddworld HD Dev Volunteers To Remake Metal Gear Solid
Farting Snake, Anyone?
The studio behind the Oddworld HD remakes has written an open-letter to Hideo Kojima offering to remake Metal Gear Solid.
British developer Just Add Water has developed HD remakes of Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath and Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee and is currently working on Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee – New ‘N’ Tasty, a remake of the PSOne original.
In the letter posted on its official site, the JAW team says they deserve the job because they are passionate about the game and have the experience to do it justice.
The letter reads:
1) We have experience working with legendary IP (Oddworld Inhabitants) and treating the subject matter with the respect it deserves.
2) Many members of our team are huge Metal Gear fans, with very good knowledge of the source material.
3) We really, really want to do it.
For evidence of our abilities, please check out not only the HD treatment of Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath, released on PlayStation 3, VITA and PC, but the current re-creation of Abe’s Oddysee, titled Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty.
We eagerly await your response.
Love and cuddles,
The JAW Team.
The letter is in response to an article stating Kojima was interested in seeing Metal Gear Solid remade on FOX Engine with updated mechanics and would love for a studio to come forward and volunteer their services.
