This is the topic where we talk about...Oddworld!(duh).

So...if you would like to talk about the Oddworld games, then...talk about them! ( there is even a poll :) )

It's actually years since I've played the Oddworld games...looking at videos of Abe's Exoddus on YouTube brings me back... 8)

I wonder what happens if you save all 300 Mudokons? I'm going to find out with Google...*goes to google*

EDIT: A secret FMV sequence. Nice. 8)

I have Munch's Odyssey for the GBA. It's that good though. Kinda glitchy. And WAAAY too hard. :pascontent:
Image
Therefore, brothers, we have an obligation-but it is not to the sinful nature, to live according to it. For if you live according to the sinful nature, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live, because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For if you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, "Abba, Father." The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs, heirs of God and co-heirs of Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.

I've got Munch's Oddysee for Xbox... It's really awesome. Unfortunately I can't play it now though as the xbox controllers are busted and it's impossible to find new ones here... I want a 360 though, then I'll be able to play it again I think. : 3 (but that'll have to wait until I've bought all my school-equipment hurrr~)

I find it kind of annoying that the only console that Abe's Exoddus/Oddysee are on is PS1, and the only console Munch's Oddysee/Stranger's Wrath are on is Xbox.

NOBODY gets the full series.

NOBODY.

But I hope Marley comes here, since he said that Oddworld is one of his favourite game series on another topic. :)

And look, I've got an image:Image

Nice, no? I ripped it myself. :proud:

It's about this world that has been taken over by the glukons.
Image
They work together with the sligs.
Image
They have enslaved the mudokons...
Image
... and forced them to produce stuff like Scrap Cakes, Paramite Pies (scrabs and paramites are two different speices of Oddworld) and Soulstorm energy drink.
But one day, a mudokon named Abe discovers, that the glukons are trying to make food of the mudokons. Abe manages to escape. He discovers the world outside the factory he used to work in as a slave, and he finds out that he has a chance to free his friends from slavery.
Oddworld gives you the ability to speak with other characters, fart, run fast, deactivate mines and even create a portal, allowing the other mudokons to escape. It's fun, but hard.

These are the Scrabs:

These are the Paramites:
Image

And this thing is a weird mythological hybrid of Scrab and Paramite, called a Shrykull:
Image

Oddworld has some pretty amazing creatures. :)

WOW! I've never seen the Shrykull before.
All i knew about was: Mudokons, glukons, sligs, slugs, scrabs, paramites, gabbons, chicken people, Strangers speices and those small, coloured creatures. And perhaps some more, that i don't remember.

Actually i played it to once (in the store) but i didn't like it. It's way to hard and i don't like the storyline.
