Ep 101 w/ Lorne Lanning ( OddWorld )

July 16th, 2014

Anyone worth their salt whose ever picked up a controller in the 90's should be well aware of the character known as Abe.

For those who do not, here's a quick lesson... In the 90's there was an odd creature known as Abe. His pals worked in a factory, a factory that made meat products...meat products made of Abe's pals!  So he had to save 'em.
Abe and his entire world... an " Oddworld ", was the creation of this week's guest Lorne Lanning. 
In the 90's we had never seen a game as smart, as beautiful or as cinematic as OddWorld: Abe's Oddysee which was followed by Abe's Exoddus. 
We really enjoyed talking with Lorne for the 2 hrs you're about to hear! 
We delve into his early years, being an artists, being in trouble, working on The Reagan Star Wars projects, working in VFX and eventually landing in games where he continues to make waves.
And of course we talk about the new Oddworld game coming July 22nd 2014 Oddworld: New N' Tasty
