Hi! and welcome to Let's Play Abe's Oddysee.
Abe's Oddysee was the first game set in the Oddworld universe. It was then followed by Abe's Exoddus, Munch's Oddysee, and Stranger's Wrath (of which Plavski did a very entertaining LP of).
In Abe's Oddysee we take the role of Abe, a lowly Mudokon slave working at a meat packing plant called "Rupture Farms." Abe learns a terrible secret and now must escape Rupture Farms and discover his true destiny, or some crap like that. You can get the full backstory by checking out these scans from the game manual.

About the game itself:
Abe's Oddysee is pretty damn hard, and frustratingly frustrating. It plays a lot like Flashback, except all Abe has is dirty loincloth. The gameplay consists of lots of puzzle solving and platforming, but there's a lot of neat stuff to make it interesting. For example, Abe can possess some enemies and then use them to kill stuff. Also, the game features a very rudimentary AI system, where Abe can communicate to his friends and give them commands.
I will be doing a "save all Mudokons" run, and will be cutting out most of the deaths. I'll be also making a death reel for most updates, for those who are interested.
What a "save all" run means is, that I will be saving all 99 of Abe's friends at Rupture Farms.
