Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee was quite anticipated when it was released in August 1997 on the Sony Playstation and introduced the big Oddworld Universe by Lorne Lanning, one of the most interesting artists in the games industry I believe.

The game illustrated a very dark and movie worthy story around the Oddworld Planet, its main protagonist Abe and the evil Rupture Farms lead by Molluck the Glukkon. Abe has to solve a ton of riddles and instead of fighting and being able to shoot whatever is in his way he has to come forward using his intelligence and help of his friends. This game was one of the first games claimed by an artist to get illustrated in the Playstation tribute.

The Oddworld Universe is expanding even today with new projects in the works after Abe’s Oddysee got a great remake with New ‘N’ Tasty in 2014.

Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee by C-R-O-F-T

Oddworld Inhabitants’ first game in their Oddworld collection was Abe’s Oddysee; an awesome platformer with great graphics, cool characters and an underlying idea that still exists today. It will remain one of my favourite platformers and I’m glad they’re still releasing versions of it for gamers to enjoy nowadays. To me it will always be a classic with challenging puzzles that impressed, even with the dodgy save system!

“Hello, Hello, Follow Me, Okay”
I still remember their quirky voices and the fun of chanting and mind-controlling a Slig guard. “Look out, Help!” …bit more chanting…then explode!

This piece includes Abe, Molluck the Glukkon “…the meanest boss in the world”, a Slig security guard, and some other Glukkons. It is ‘Abe’s Escape’ from RuptureFarms after he finds out himself and his fellow Mudokons are next week’s meaty treat!
