The Return of Abe and Oddworld!!!
I posted about this on the Friday Night Gamers blog; but I have to talk about it here too.
Abe is a part of my past. A part I almost recently revived when I was cleaning up my office some and ran into my Abe's Exoddus CD. These games will have you in stitches as you help Abe rescue his friends from slavery and impending doom.
Failures in the game are almost as fun as successes; and you'll find yourself repeating them for laughs as you go through the game. You interact with the friends to get them to team up to help you past obstacles. Depending on your actions... your friends will react in different ways (including getting into slap fights...)
The slap is useful when your friends seem "punch-drunk" from happy gas ... and speaking of gas... the games are loaded with farts.
Demos are available for both Oddworld games, so get downloading now... then go buy it, play them and come back and tell us what you think!
