Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee is Free on Steam Today

Oddworld

Legendary platformer Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee can be yours for free if you act fast.

In order to promote it's Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee remake, Oddworld: New n' Tasty Oddworld Inhabitants is giving away the original game absolutely free. Yep, if you head over to the Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee Steam page, you'll be able to add it to your account for free, where it will stay forever. But you'll have to hurry, as this offer will end September 24 at 10am Pacific time.

Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee was originally released for the PlayStation and PC all the way back in 1997, and is fondly remembered by many old-school gamers as one of sidescrolling platforming's greats, and a kind of evolution on the "Metroidvania" style of platforming. The game put you in control of Abe, a slave worker attempting to escape from the confines Molluck the Glukkon, who plans to turn Abe and his fellow Mudokons into food.

Its flawless platforming combined with its quirky sense of humor cemented the game into a long-running franchise, though none of its sequels ever really came close to the original.

As for New n' Tasty, it's effectively a HD-remake of the original game, so if you'd love to experience a classic of gaming in the modern age, you can snap it up for 50% off until September 25.

I know the Oddworld games are kinda liked, but I just can't stand the sight of Abe for more than a few seconds. When I bought the first game yeeeears ago I got the worst summer cholera of my life. I still feel nausea when I see anything Abe related. Except for Stranger's Wrath, that one I really like.

In the UK its not free, but its only £0.49

Excellent. Childhood memories...

It's a shame the original didn't really age well. I bought it a while back and tried to play it, but good lord the controls are something else alright.

Ohhh dude, feel you on that one, I had some of the worst fever and vomiting one easter break when I was a child and I tried to play Crash Bandicoot while I was beddridden... I- ugh, the memories of that illness have tainted my memory of that charming little game and I can't really play it too long even now. Luckily did not try to play any other game. And the CB Sequels are free.

But Crash Bandicoot 1. That poor game, it did nothing wrong.

It is free in the UK as well, I downloaded it. You just need to go to a specific part of the store. Type "Abe" into search and it will come up with the free one and you just click install. On the same page it will also mention it is on sale for £0.49.

Thanks for that!

New and tasty is a bit more than HD remake. They remodelled everything (and changed some levels I hear) in unity in 3D. Looks pretty good too. ;)

Great, never got to play the game on the PS. Downloading.

Abe's Oddysee is free. Abe's Exodus is £0.49. They're two different games.

Grabbed it. Also, Amnesia The Dark Descent was free last week. So that was pretty cool.

Only entry for Canada is the $0.82 one.

Eh, it's $0.74 for me.

May grab it just because though...which I'm becoming more and more convinced is the mentality that Steam's entire business model is predicated upon.
