Developer Just Add Water offers to do the MGS remake

After Hideo Kojima’s recent comments on how he’d like to collaborate with an outside studio to develop a Metal Gear Solid remake on the Fox Engine, UK based developer Just Add Water posted an open letter on their site.


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:

  1. We have experience working with legendary IP (Oddworld Inhabitants) and treating the subject matter with the respect it deserves.
  2. Many members of our team are huge Metal Gear fans, with very good knowledge of the source material.
  3. 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.

It will certainly be interesting to see if, and how Kojima will respond to this offer.

    While they’re at it, might as well remaster ZOE : 2nd Runner with the fox engine. That’d make my day.

      WHAT?! Something other than Metal Gear? That’d be way too cool a thing for Konami to work on, don’t be silly. You will take your Metal Gear remakes and you will enjoy it.

    I loved Oddworld: Abe’s Exxodus. Enjoyed the atmosphere of this game on my PSX.

    I don’t like this offer that company can’t make something really good like mgs 1 remake just look at their games, they have no experienced in stealth games and the remake won’t be like mgs 1 it would play like mgs v so it’s imposible that they can manage something like that

    I don’t like this MGS re-remake… Not again… I mean, just remake MG, and MG2, not MGS again…

  • Nam Fury

    with kojima , remake always better. Hope it

    i believe a great story cannot change the creator it just wont be the same anyhow

    I loved Abe’s Oddysee games and I am really excited for the JAW remake. But since they take years to show 5 seconds footage of a 2d plataformer, i don’t know if they are ready as a team, or have the staff needed to get a project as big as MGS1.

    I apologize in advance for this shameless self-promotion, but I’ve just added a new post to my blog on the Decoy Octopus Hypothesis. Please check it out and comment if you have the time.
