Oddworld: Soulstorm is a re-imagining of the 1998 title Oddworld: Abe’s Exoddus, with a new story. It will serve as a direct sequel to Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty.
Soulstorm is set on the fictional planet Oddworld on its Mudos continent. Abe is the main character, and he saves 300 fellow Mudokons from the meat grinders of his employer, which grinds up the natives and serves them as food. Lanning said the game is a dark parable with a fresh story and game mechanics.
