Oddworld Comes To GoG

DRM-free classic gaming digital download store Good Old Games adds yet another star to their stellar lineup with the addition of the beloved Oddworld Inhabitants series.

The first fruit of the partnership between GoG.com and Oddworld Inhabitants is the game that kicked off the strange new world, Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee, which follows the plight of lovable Mudokon Abe as he tries to rescue his friends from the slaughterhouse that is RuptureFarms.

“We are happy to add the Oddworld series to the GOG.com catalogue. It's a great chance for anyone who’s already played the games to remember why they were so much fun, and also to introduce Abe and his fellow Mudokons to a new generation of gamers,” said Larry Shapiro, President of Oddworld Inhabitants. ”We believe that digital distribution is the future of gaming for both developers and gamers, making GOG.com an ideal fit for Oddworld.”

Abe's Oddysee is now available for $9.99 from the website, and comes with a bonus MP3 soundtrack and map to sweeten the deal. Yum.
