Oddworld creator Lorne Lanning has revealed to Eurogamer at this week's GDC event that he only needs to sell 250K copies of New 'n' Tasty to fund a remake of Abe's Exoddus, the 1998 PlayStation title. Lanning also revealed that if he is able to sell more than 250,000 copies, the funds will help create an all new Oddworld game after the remake.
"If I'm doing a new Oddworld game, I'm not going to do it for $2 million. I might do it for five or six," he added. "People keep asking me, 'Why don't you Kickstart Oddworld? You could get at least $1 or $2 million.' And I'm like 'What would I do with a couple million on Kickstarter? On a new Oddworld title?' Not much. I could redo Exoddus for a couple million. I could do that. But a new title, which means new characters doing new things and controls that are great - that's where the real time and expenses come from."
Lanning revealed that while there are a number of possibilites for a new Oddworld title, the team are eagerly looking at the previously canned The Brutal Ballad of Fangus Klot, though the studio does have other ideas as well. "Over the last year and a half, I've designed Fangus extensively. And I would like to be able to move into Fangus as soon as a new IP in Oddworld," Lanning explained.

"But no matter what, Exoddus would come first. And then we'd get into expansion packs for those titles," he stated. The team are quite confident though in moving said goal, with previous HD re-releases moving over two million units alone.

Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty! is expected to release sometime later this year for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. A PC and Wii U release are expected in the future.
