In Odd We Trust

A Doomed World: Welcome to Oddworld, a dog-eat-dog world ravaged by corporate greed.
A Ruthless Overlord: If you think cruelty, paranoia, ruthlessness, and double-dealing are endearing traits, you're going to love Molluck, the Glukkon and his army of gun toting, slime-slobbering Sligs, Slogs, Paramites, and Scrabs.
An Enslaved Race: The Mudokon, a race of downtrodden slaves toiling for RuptureFarms, hosing down rib cages and packaging Juicy Pukes. They're about to be demoted...from slaves into pie filling.

The Odds Are Against You: Meet Abe. He's skinny. He wears a loincloth and has no weapons whatsoever. (He's the guy you play.) Unlock Abe's special powers and figure out your foes - you might save your race. Don't and you're dinner.

Enter Oddworld's surreal, sensory overload of pure gaming and claim your destiny. Savior? Or Salami? You decide.

The Adrenaline Vault by Jordan Thomas

"Teeming with life, the vast planet houses some of the strangest and most dangerous life-forms ever to be conceived during Mother Nature's "experimental" phase. In this particular adventure, dubbed Abe's Oddysey, you get to play the proverbial runt of the litter."

"...quality is directly reflected by almost every element of the game.I must take a moment now to personally commend the artists and animators who put their creative brilliance into this visual feast. The cutscenes sport the very best character animation, texturing, facial motion, and background artwork I have ever seen. When I fired this game up, I felt like I was embarking on something greater than a nice computer game. The perfect cinematic engineering of the in-game movies establishs a gloriously epic feel. Further animations are integrated seamlessly into gameplay. Between two-dimensional movement through the levels, there are three-dimensional transitions, which rotate, zoom, and fly through the Oddworld, the final frames of which freeze into actual levels! I was very impressed, to say the least. Every creature, every background, and every sparkly special effect is expertly created, and the overall visual effect is so spellbinding that it's scary in a wonderful way."

"Oddworld is a dangerous, highly carnivorous place. Enemies range from cybernetic slugs, armed to the non-existent teeth, to leaping pack-predators somewhere between a spider and a rabbit. Each and every one of them can eliminate Abe with a single flick of the appropriate mandible. Ingenuity is vital, as is patience. The game's only major weakness lies in its often enraging difficulty, and then the subsequent repetition of all challenges leading up to Abe's ninety-thousandth horrible demise."

"But this is the game's single flaw, and it cannot mar the overall superiority of this title. Abe's Oddysey will become your own, and it will be a simultaneously challenging and enjoyable ride. If you could speak with Abe about your newfound quest, and you will, he'd say, "Follow me," in possibly the cutest accent in the unknown universe. I advise you to do so."
