The Story of Oddworld: Soulstorm

Wednesday 27th October: 17.00 - 17.45Room 2

Oddworld: Soulstorm’s journey began in 2014 as the team was finishing up Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty and ventured its way toward a next-gen push, assisted by Unity’s high-fidelity visuals, but it all ended up teetering on a technical moonshot to bring it all home…and that’s just the beginning.
Host: Will Freeman, Freelance Journalist
