About This Game

Abe's peaceful retirement was shattered when visited by a vision from the Mudokon Spirit Guides. Abe™ learned the Magog Cartel was mining Necrum, the sacred Mudokon city of the dead, to collect bones to make super-addictive SoulStorm Brew.

After freeing the Mudokon spirits imprisoned in the Mudanchee and Mudomo Vaults, Abe gained scary powers from the Spirit Guides, including the ability to heal his Mudokon friends of Soul-Storm addiction, and the power to turn invisible. Infiltrating the transportation hub of FeeCo Depot, and using explosive farts to survive adventures at the Slig Barracks and Bonewerks, Abe broke into SoulStorm Brewery.

There Abe learned the truth behind the secret ingredient of SoulStorm Brew . . . just before blasting the place to atoms with the combined power of the sobered-up Mudokon he'd rescued. Then Abe joined his brew-addled pals at Alf's Rehab & Tea to take the cure - the journey of a lifetime starts with one step. Or is it twelve?

I absolutely love this game. I love it so much, I spent a month only playing this game and saved all the Mudokans. I didn't grow up with the Oddworld games, but earlier this year I picked up the first on PS1. I honestly didn't have much fun. The game is good, but I would rather play it on an emulator where I can save anytime I wanted. So when I heard Abe's Exoddus had the ability to save and quicksave where ever and when ever I wanted (and needed) to, I got excited. And to be perfectly honest, I perfer the keyboard controls over the controller. I feel it's better for this kind of game, where you have to execute a quick set of movemens in a quick succession (like when you have to run and then roll into a hole. I didn't like how my movements felt pretty clunky on the PS1 version of Abe's Oddysee.

Some Pros:
The story is great (play the game to find out)
The Mudokans are the most adorable things I've ever seen (I don't think the blind guys are scary)
The controls can be changed to make movement fluid
You can possess almost everything (even your own farts after you drink some SoulStorm)
The cutscenes are great
(This is just a little thing, but I love how some Mudokans' voices can be really high or really low)
(Another small thing, but I like Abe's new voice)

Some Cons:
The game is old, so the steam overlay and screenshot functions don't work
Sometimes alt-tabbing out would crash the game, and saving on one screen completely crashed everything (I'm guessing somewhere in Necrum)
The graphics are pretty low-res, and the cutscenes are pretty blurry(but I still love the cutscenes)

Buy this game and you will be happy if you're fine with quicksaving a lot

To those who have played Dark Souls and said that that game is hard, have obviously never played Oddworld.

10 reasons why you should buy Oddworld: Abe's Exodus

1. Best FMV cutscenes, or for that matter, any kind of cutscenes, in video games (except maybe the other Oddworld cutscenes)
2. GameSpeak allows you to talk to your Mudokon buddies, making for some ingenious puzzles
3. The platforming is great
4. You can possess the enemies and wreck their s**t
5. It's funny as s**t
6. The oddness is immense and just great
7. The story is great
8. The GameSpeak was expanded from the 1st game to the creatures you can possess, allowing for even more puzzles
9. It's only $2.50

So buy this game.

Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus is a landmark game, and worthy sequel to the original Abe's Oddysee.

Even in its now-limited screen resolution, the strong visual design of Abe's Exoddus shines through. Don't expect to run this game at your native resolution (unless you never upgraded beyond 800x600 - in which case, you're in luck!), but do expect the following: some fantastic and challenging platforming gameplay; a vast number of gorgeous levels interwoven with an interesting, dark and downright odd narrative; some brilliant music which changes dynamically depending on the events taking place; and finally, some fiendish puzzles which make use of Abe's talent for posession and the use of GameSpeak - a system by which you can instruct other characters to whatever ends you desire, be it salvation or something more nefarious.

If you've played it before, there's no better time to return to the original Oddworld titles before enjoying the delights of the HD Remake, New N' Tasty, which recreates the events of the original game in a modern game engine and is "coming soon". If you're new to the series, don't be put off by the age or initial difficulty curve. Exoddus has a quick save system, so you'll never lose progress as long as you're diligent. A must-play!

You've got to understand... I picked up this $2.49 game for 4 reasons:

1. Its cheap as
2. Its an ultimate classic (ps1)
3. Its only 500 mb download.
4. Suspensive. In fact so suspensive you'll need to put a bowl under your seat or something.

If your computer runs on poos and you feel left out, then get it or wait till it goes on sale and pick it up for 1.99!

This game is like a steak. You eat one and love every minute of it. Then you eat another, and another, and another until you get fat. Then you cry yourself to sleep everynight.

Unless you're vegetarian.

"Nostalgia Intensifies" Jesus, i grew up with the oddworld games so its good to see them on Steam, this game was amazing when it first came out on the PS1 and its still as great on the PC...

After all this time, I still can't beat it

Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus is a near-perfect port of the PSX version.

Here's why I love it:
  • The puzzles are fantastic
  • You can kill fellow mudokons for business or pleasure
  • Taking control of Sligs for a joyride is exciting
  • The graphics are obviously enhanced, and look relatively good in comparison

Here's what I don't like:
  • Unmappable arrow controlls (eew)
  • Enemy scrabs somehow attack better than your scrabs
  • Most of the later puzzles are solely based on timing, which can get annoying

It's a wonderful game, but it's hard.

This sequel fixes most of the problems I had with the old game. Sure I can't run it without black borders, and the controls are tiled, but looking at New 'n' Tasty, This game is fantastic. The controls, levels, AI and generally the way the game works is fluid and simple. If you screw up, you can always go back (For example you wake up a slig, and instead of having to reload or kill yourself, you can simply leave the area and he will be asleep again. The simplicity of this just makes this game very enjoyable.

The only con I have at the moment is that I can't use my controller, but I'm happy to use keyboard anyway.

When i was little my abes exoddus disc broke on playstation and i tried for hours to get it working but it never did. Well i have now mended those frustrating childhood memories.

Its a classic. Difficult but never unfair its on par with dark souls, intelligent puzzles.I still love the graphics and artistic backgrounds. The sound is awesome,so good infact that a blind person has completed the game multiple times with no walkthroughs. I like the anti corporate message and how its perfectly blended with humor. I feel like there was alot of influence from the original old school looney tunes.

I played on controller, not really into keyboard. I recommend this and abes oddysee, still just as good as back then,the best.

This game is essentially the same as the first Oddworld game, but with a few improvements. It has a better tutorial, new enemy type, able to save whenever (which lets you create your own checkpoints). That said, the controls still feel clunky and delayed, which causes many frustrating deaths. Otherwise the atmosphere and characters are still as great as I remember when playing this game for the first time as a kid! http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=751514237
