Have You Played… Oddworld: Abe’s Exoddus?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. While recently playing the wondrous but flawed Rain World, I was reminded of poor Abe. The original Oddysee was a belter, yes, but with Exoddus I feel the developers at Oddworld Inhabitants really perfected their art. They were able to keep all the…

Six Years Later, Developers Fix Munch’s Oddysee Port

You know that saying better late than never? It's an odd one, especially when you've kinda forgotten about a thing and then suddenly one day the developers are like, "Oh, remember that port of that game we released six years ago that wasn't so good? Yeah, we're fixing that now." That's exactly what's happening with Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee [official site] The farty platformer kinda stank…

Oddworld: Soulstorm Announced, May Not Be A Remake

Oddworld Inhabitants have revealed Oddworld: Soulstorm [official site], a new Oddworld series entry and follow-up to last year's New 'N' Tasty. It's due for release in 2017, where we'll see "Abe as you've never seen him before," so says the game's website. Which makes me picture the Mudokon slave worker with his napkin tucked into his shirt, all prim and proper and, you know, not…

Abe’s Oddysee Is Free For The Next Half Hour Go Go Go

Excuse the rapidly-written post, but I only just noticed this and, at the time of writing, there are only thirty Earth minutes until the offer expires. 1997 platformer, and first game in the ongoing Oddworld series, Abe's Oddysee is currently free on Steam. But not just in a free weekend sort of way - add it before 6pm UK time / 10am Pacific today and…

Oldworld: Oddworld New & Tasty On PC Next Month

My main memory of the Oddworld games is some guy at university uproariously demonstrating that you could make the main character fart or burp or something. Brilliant. Later that day, he threw up while helping to push a friend's broken car around the corner, and it was then that I realised for the first time that a life spent almost entirely indoors playing videogames was…

Feast For The Eyes: An Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty Trailer

For the second time, the original Oddworld game has been rejigged for modern machines, which might be an honest-to-goodness record. Sure, there have been re-imaginings of multiple series, but I can't remember a game being officially remade more than once. Can anyone confirm or disconfirm that for me? Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty is so new and modern that the phrase "1080p" is in the press…

Fresh Meat: Oddworld Abe’s Oddysee New N’ Tasty

Abe's Oddysee HD will now be known as Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee New N' Tasty, because apparently the world isn't a silly enough place. At the Eurogamer Expo, Oddworld founder Lorne Lanning and Stewart Gilray of Just Add Water, the company handling development, spoke about the remake reboot reimagining reoddering at length, also showing the game for the first time. That presentation can be seen below,…

Stranger’s Wrath HD Released, Oddly Free Patch

Oddworld have announced that Stranger's Wrath HD has appeared on Steam. The tale of a mysterious, vaguely angry (yet loveable) bounty-hunter was already ported to PC in 2010, of course, but owners of that original release can now get the HD patch for free. The HD rebuild adds hi-res characters and environments to the game, but also reworks the controls and difficulty settings for PC.…

Oddworld Buzzes In With Hand of Odd

In a classic case of me not noticing what's right in front of me, it took me at least three minutes to realise that there were bees all over the Oddworld Hand of Odd logo on the new teaser site, encasing whatever the hell that thing is in delicious honeycomb. I've no idea what the game will be, but it's from Just Add Water, who…

Oddboxx Pricced

Like so many series that saw their beginnings on the PC, then ABANDONED US LIKE DIRTY TURNCOATS, the Oddworld games hitched up their trousers and stomped off to the consoles in the last decade. SCREW THEM! you may cry. But it's important to be forgiving, especially in the face of contrition. So it is that we've known the complete collection of Oddworld games, amidst rumours…

Oddboxx Alive, Hitting This December

A year ago (wow!) Jim posted news that the PC would be seeing the release of Oddboxx, a pack of all the Oddworld games including the never-released-on-PC titles Munch's Odyssey and the wonderfully perverse bounty hunting game Stranger's Wrath, plus some small additions and extras. Well, I can now announce that Oddbox is not only alive and kicking, but it'll be released "this holiday season"…

Oddbox: Oddworld Games On PC

Thanks to everyone who sent in the link to this interview, in which Oddworld creator Lorne Lanning revealed: "all four of the major Oddworld games will be re-releasing this winter in a package called "The Oddbox." This will be the Abe games, Munch, and Stranger as one package for Steam's digital distribution network, as well as a few other digital distribution outlets." That means we'll…
