GOG.com's catalog of downloadable, DRM-free games keeps getting more impressive. The company has announced that it will be carrying a pair of titles from Oddworld Inhabitants -- Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee and Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus. For those of you not familiar with these games (originally released for PC and PlayStation), they are two of the most creative platform titles ever made. Oddworld Inhabitants is known for its funky art style, wacky humor, and refreshing originality. According to GOG.com's press release:
"'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 available now, while Abe's Exoddus will be available a week from today. Each game will cost $9.99 USD. I hope GOG does well with these two. I'm a huge fan of Oddworld Inhabitants and I hope that more people get exposed to the Oddworld style. Mudokons 4 Life!!!
