Original Thread: Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee



Where am I

Hello, welcome to Oddworld! Oddworld is a series of games created by the video game company: Oddworld Inhabitants! The Oddworld games revolve around the battle between nature and industry, it has social commentary which wasn't really a thing a lot of video games did back in the late 90s. More importantly though, the oddworld games are fun, funny, and introduce the audience to unique settings and characters. There are four games so far in the series, three of them are in a planned "quintology" (to be honest I have no idea if that is still a thing OWI are still sticking with). A new n tasty game is in the works, it should be released sometime in 2014 (it is, in fact, a sort of re-imagining of the game being played in this thread!)

What is this

Oddworld Abe's Oddysee is the first game in the Oddworld series. It revolves around a wimpy, skinny looking alien man named Abe and his brethren. One night Abe was waxing floors when, gasp, things at his job are not as they seem! Abe's Oddysee is a 2D puzzle platformer along the veins of "Prince of Persia" and "Out of this World". There are no lives to worry about, but it's difficult to get through with your skin intact. Add the fact that you need to save your friends from getting eaten, and Abe's Oddysee becomes a notoriously difficult experience.

What are you doing

The ending of Oddworld is determined by how many of your friends you save. So I'm doing two separate runs: the Save All and the Kill All. Keep in mind that in Oddysee it's impossible to kill everyone without resorting to straight up no-clip style cheating, so hopefully what we can do will satisfy your disgusting bloodlust.

Where are the other games I like video game

Bonus: Gameboy

This is Oddworld Adventures. Originally I was going to have a series of bonus videos, in which I was going to play through it and beat it. Much like the Kill All Run, this did not work out. It did not work out because I have had negative fun playing this game. No one has anything to say about Oddworld Adventures. The artbook that I get all my quotes and fun facts from doesn't mention the game once. This is what the oddworld wiki has:


Oddworld Adventures is a video game created in 1998 for the Game Boy by Oddworld Inhabitants, GT Interactive and Saffire. The game is a port of Abe's Oddysee, but due to the Game Boy's limitations, the game is much shorter and lacks some detail. Unlike Abe's Oddysee, the game begins from the wilderness, leaving the introductory RuptureFarms area absent from the game.
