    Good news, especially that the series' creator is involved in the development.

    There was a special pack/edtion/something that would compile all of the released games until now, has anyone any news about it?

    The Oddbox. Also containing Munch's Odyssey and Stranger Wrath. It's still coming out in 2010 last time I checked.

    Lorne Lanning had better voice most of the cast again, he's pretty good.

    Oddworld games were truly wonderful. Abe's Oddysee's prerendered sidescrolling screens burned themselves into my retina when I was a child and it was very thrilling when I got a working copy via Steam that I played to completion.

    Although frankly Stranger's Wrath and Munch's Oddysee were not as good. Abe's Exoddus was really the apex of the series. My god, if they can recreate that type of game we could have some truly delicious indie puzzle platformer.

    I don't understand the point of the remakes though, the originals are still pretty (prerendered backdrops always will be). New game has my attention. Please, Jesus.

    I highly recommend playing Abe's Oddysee or Abe's Exoddus to anyone that's interested. Exoddus was absolutely brilliant.

    You mean Stranger's Wrath? Lol, they already did that.

    Exoddus was even better than Oddysee, so many inventive and genius mechanics. But there's a lot to be said for a series that starts with possessing your enemies in order to walk them into meat grinders/off cliffs.

    *Both jumps to meat grinder O_O

    I was beyond sad when I realized that I got the bad ending in first game. There were some fuckers I couldn't able to rescue even in my experianced playthrough after.
    And second game really better than first.

    I played Oddysee a few times, mostly around its time of release, but only once to completion, a few years ago. Saved everyone :obviously:

    Which reminds me, I need to revisit the Exoddus.

    Stranger's Wrath was fun for what it was - a quirky action game with decent difficulty level.

    I hope Lanning ever get's the chance to realise some of his older ideas, like Hand of Odd or Citizen Siege. This guy is incredibly talented and outspoken, and that's also why publishers treated him like shit all the time.
