Oddworld’s Abe hitting PSN: Oct 21st 2009!

It is the year of classics and nothing makes me happier than to reveal that the smooth-talking, wind-breaking, cheeky little Mudokon known to the world as Abe, is making an appearance on the Playstation 3 store this Autumn.

That’s right folks! The two games that made Abe the protagonist you love to play, are heading they way to PSN on October 21st 2009 – So spread the word and get yourself ready!


Originally released in 1997, Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee is a game about slavery, homocide and fart jokes. You play Abe, a poor little Mudokon who has been enslaved and forced to work at Rupture Farms (the biggest meat processing plant on Oddworld) for a mean ol’ Glukkon. Upon chance you discover that your life is in danger, along with those of your Mudokon brethren, and it is up to you to escape the clutches of evil while ensuring you rescue as many of your fellow Mudokon slaves as you do so.


The sequel to the multi-award winning game Abe’s Oddysee is another multi-award winning game, Oddworld: Abe’s Exoddus. Released in 1998, Exoddus sees our lovable hero Abe heading off on another mission to stop those evil Glukkons once again. More enslaving has been had, but this time the Glukkons are intent on using Mudokon bones and tears to create their top-selling product, Soulstorm Brew.

For those gamers who just can’t wait that long to pick up and play Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee and Oddworld: Abe’s Exoddus, they are both available now on Steam for download. They are priced 4.99 GBP individually, or you can pick up the Oddworld package for 7.99 GBP.

And if THAT hasn’t tickled your Oddworld-bone, than I know what will. A little birdy told me today that, “Rupture Farms is turning on the lights again!”. Take it how you want, but after last year’s announcement of a new President taking on Oddworld Inhabitants, we here at VGR Network are definitely getting our hopes up of seeing Abe gracing our gaming world once again.

Keep your eyes peeled and your hands off of my Soulstorm Brew!
