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