The production will be available on the videogame market starting next Tuesday 6 April, with an expected debut on new and previous generation Sony consoles and PCs.

With its release just days away, Oddworld Inhabitants treated everyone to a brand new gameplay for its forthcoming platformer puzzler, Oddworld Soulstorm.

Narrated by studio head honcho Lorne Lanning, the trailer leaned heavily into how its self-styled ‘2.9D camera’ allowed for more environmental and cinematic storytelling.

In addition to that, the trailer did a good job of showing off the various puzzles, traps and obstacles that our hero Abe must overcome as he seeks to free his bretheren.
