Hello. Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee is getting a major upgrade in the form of New 'n' Tasty, an enhanced re-release of the weird and wonderful 2D platformer. Described as a "ground-up remake", New 'n' Tasty promises enhanced visuals, "refined gameplay", and overhauled sound design. All that, and yet they still haven't learnt the correct spelling of odyssey. A new trailer has been released for GDC, giving you a taste of the game's new look. Follow me.
If you're currently caressing a well-worn crossbow loaded with a spider larger than your fist and a snarling fuzzball of teeth, then...actually, let's stop right there. We don't want to know. What we do know is the PC version of the knuckle-dusting adventure Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath is now on Steam with a graphical overhaul and a price discount to boot. Now that's a deal any thrifty bounty hunter appreciates.
The Oddworld Oddboxx was released just before Christmas, but was troubled by severe bugs and compatability problems. The port of Stranger's Wrath was in particularly bad shape, but has just received a massive patch, hopefully fixing many of the problems the game had at launch. Munch's Oddysee has also received some much needed attention. You'll find the full list of fixes below.
The recently released Oddboxx, a pack containing the first four Oddworld games, has been experiencing some serious technical issues. Players booting up Munch's Oddysee and Stranger's Wrath, both ports of original Xbox releases, are experiencing crashes, control issues, resolution problems and more. Oddworld Inhabitants have announced that they are working on a patch to fix the issues. Read on for details.
Two new entries into the weird and wonderful Oddworld series will be coming to Steam before the end of the year. The games will be bundled into the Oddboxx, which contains Abe's Oddysee, Abe's Exoddus and two more Oddworld games that have never before been released on PC.
