A couple of days ago, we mentioned that Hideo Kojima was looking for the right development team to help him remake the original Metal Gear Solid. Today he received an interesting answer from a team that believes it can get the job done.
Just Add Water, the developer behind Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD and the forthcoming Oddworld: New n’ Tasty, responded to Kojima with a heartfelt response.
Dear Mr Kojima,
We read with great excitement on VG247 that you were looking for a studio to work with to develop a Metal Gear Solid remake using the Fox Engine, that your team has been hard at work creating.
We at Just Add Water feel ideally positioned to do the remake justice for several reasons
-We have experience working with legendary IP (Oddworld Inhabitants) and treating the subject matter with the respect it deserves.
-Many members of our team are huge Metal Gear fans, with very good knowledge of the source material.
-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 PlayStation3, 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
No argument here – the team knows what it’s doing. We’ll let you know if Kojima responds to Just Add Water’s inquiry.
