Munch's Oddysee 2016 Update 14

Hi Oddworld fans.

We're pushing live another update today that does the following:

1. Adds a few new higher poly models from Munch's Oddysee HD, namely the Big Bro Slig.

2. Offers higher-quality pre-rendered cut-scenes.

3. Fixes the instances where the camera would look at the wrong thing during real-time cut-scenes.

We'll continue to address outstanding issues with the game and - don't worry - we haven't forgotten multi-language support.

Munch's Oddysee 2016 updated with new 'HD' audio, brightness tweaks, other fixes

Hi Oddworld fans.

Once again, thanks for your patience. We continue to work on and refine our new port of Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee now it's out of beta - our latest updates and patches include:

1 - much higher quality (bit-rate) sound effects throughout

2 - the inclusion of the newer audio from Munch's Oddysee HD

3 - the game now runs at 60 FPS

4 - movie player now plays back cut-scenes in 4:3 to avoid cropping

5 - new saves will have brightness and gamma levels that better match the Xbox original (and the older port). If you have an existing save, set the brightness to 0 and the three gamma sliders to 4.


We're continuing our quest to build back in European language support, other 'HD' models and textures and are committing to fixing any outstanding bugs or issues - please use the stickied thread in the Steam forums to let us know your thoughts and findings:

Thanks, once again,

About This Game

New port for 2016

We've reported the game for 2016, which now runs at 60 FPS, includes higher resolution textures, better quality cut-scenes, improved audio, higher poly models, numerous fixes and improvements, and trading cards, badges, emotes and backgrounds!

About the game

Players guide Mudokon champion Abe, and his aquatic Gabbit partner Munch, in Oddworld's third adventure, using special psychic powers, cool power-ups, and other special abilities to deliver payback as they reclaim the last gabbit eggs on Oddworld, which have been packaged in a can of gabbiar.

Key features:

  • Play as a team - players use Munch and Abe cooperatively to make their way through the trials of Oddworld. Leverage both characters' unique strengths:
  • Abe- Abe can climb and jump to reach new areas, and then run to escape from dangerous enemies. When all else fails, chant to take control of the enemy's soul, and use their guns to clear a path to safety.
  • Munch - Munch can swim around the new realms of Oddworld. When on the ground, zip along with a wheelchair power up. Need to move some yapping Slogs out of the way? Just use Munch's nifty remote control head port to fire up the crane and drop those Sloggies in their pen.
  • Special psychic powers - Munch and Abe's psychic powers can extend their reach and get others to do the dirty work:
  • As Abe - Let Abe's chant roar to take possession of a gun-toting Big Bro Slig and clear almost anything out of the way. Abe can use spooce or spiritual power gained byharvesting SpooceShrubs to posses other creatures as well, but why think small?
  • As Munch - If Abe can't mesmerize someone into getting the job done, Munch can use his handy remote control head port to hijack nearby machines including cranes, and 50-caliber Anesthesia bots to tackle the really tough obstacles.
  • Power-Ups – Every friendly character you can find becomes a fighting ally, Fuzzles, Mudokons…. Need to get somewhere quickly or get over a wall, like right now? Use Oddworld's consumer power-ups like Expresso and Bounce to amp up Munch and Abe's abilities to perform cool moves. For the more direct approach, possess high-caliber weapon toting enemies.
  • Oddworld, now in "new and improved 3D!" - it's a whole new Oddworld, with lush rivers, towering mountains and hundreds of trees that bloom or die.
  • Interact with dozens of different oddball races - use GameSpeak® to get Oddworld's Inhabitants from the heavily armed Big Bro Sligs to the cute but ferocious Fuzzles) to carry out tricky tasks or just beat the crap out of enemies.
  • "Frustration Free" gaming - Oddworld's new intelligent cinematic camera, auto-targeting system and no-stick navigation system makes playing a breeze! Plus with easy
  • QuikSave® and limitless lives, players have plenty of chances to take on any situation…
    no matter how Odd!

To start off I would like to say that I am completely biased towards this game. I used to play Munch's Oddysee all the time, when I was kid, on the original xbox. The emulated version of it on the 360 made it impossible to hear anything. So when I found out that not only did they add both the PS1 games and Munch's Oddysee I was excited. From all of the other reviews they were mentioning things that I've somewhat experienced like crashing and bad camera controls. On the crashing side, i'm pretty sure they fixed the starting crash that I experienced when this was first released back in like 2013 or somewhere. When it comes to the camera side, I have no issues with it whatso ever. Maybe I was already used to bad camera controls or what but I didn't really notice it. I first played this game with the 360 controller and had no issues with it. Then later on I copied the game to a USB which I would play during class using only mouse and keyboard. For anyone who wants a single player puzzle game with a weird twist on lore, this is your game.

Whoa! Let this be a lesson to any other devs who want to ship a poopy port. Put a bit of love and elbow grease into it, and holy crap, the magic you can do. Awesome job guys. I don't think its too little too late, I think its a good job for a great game, and I appreciate your effort. Everyone deserves to play Munch, the way it was meant to be, and now they can.

Did you play this as a child xD? I loved this game as a kid and although I think it's lost some of it's charm it's still a fairly solid puzzle game.

OddWorld: Munch's Oddysee is an under appretiated masterpeice. With wonderfully designed characters, an awesome soundtrack, hillarious and strong story, strategy, action, and good old platforming, it is a game beyond compare. It also provides plenty of backstory, so you don't even have to had played the other games. And for only $5.00? Get out your moolah and buy this game now!

Abe is a hero among his people after destroying Rupture Farms and Soul Storm Brewery. He has saved a great many of his Mudoken freinds from being turned into lunch and tricked into slavery, but he always knew there were more of his brothers out there. Munch is a Gabbit who has lost his people. After the Glukons, those who were behind Rupture Farms and Soul Storm Brewery, used nets to capture all of the Gabbits from the ocean, Munch has been left alone without any hope of seeing another of his kind again. But together, with their psychic abilities, they will bring down the Glukons and Vyykers Labs once and for all, and get the last can of Gabbit Eggs to save Munch's race. But not without saving the Mudokens and the Fuzzles of course!

Some people critisize this game because of it being a port, but I think there is absolutely nothing wrong with any of the controls, graphics, or anything whatsoever. This game is a purchase you will not regret, and I also recommend the others in the series as well.

As much as I have read on here that people have had bugs with the game, I hate to say that the Pc port works fine for me, I grew up with this game and I'm glad I can expereince it on Pc, since I don't own the original Xbox copy anymore.

Simple, fun, easy to pick up fun for £3.99, some may see it as linear, I see it as unique

The one problem I have is the Keyboard control, I personally recommend changing the controls if you plan on using the Keyboard.

Also would like an HD update soon or enough, so for that I rate this 8/10

This game is an absolute classic from the Xbox era for me.
I was put off from buying this because of all the negative reviews. I watch my nephew play it and with the steam summer sale i had no REAL reason not to buy it.

I have to say this; The port is really buggy.

While perusing the shop page we read something about a beta.. We tried it and it is WAY less buggy. and absolutely worth the money :)

Munch's Oddysee is a game for the fans of Oddworld that wanted to see more of the world and its inhabitants

The story, although a bit of a re-hash of the previous games, has an interesting narrative and a good humour to it; some of the poetic nature and grim undertone of the world has been dialled back a bit for a more comedic tone, it still works but the atmosphere has altered a little. There are new characters and enemies, none quite as memorable as the likes of Big Face or Molluck. Overall the story element is good but has been done better in previous games.

Gameplay is trying at time, with the difficult controls and an annoying camera. Characters have the ability to respawn one another from an egg, so dying is more of a temporary setback than a penance. The ability to respawn one character by using another is handy in gameplay but does take out some of the stakes of dying, as you rarely value your life when playing.

Overall the game is another chance to get experience Oddworld, with the same humour, characters and world. I recommend Munch's Oddysee because it's just enjoyable game.

The idea of the game is great, but it has so many bugs and is really difficult to play with so many camera troubles, I played it to get into my childhood but as soon as I get outside the cave I get myself into a bug.
Not recommended.

I was a huge OddWorld fan, i bought the bundle when it was on sale and enjoyed the first 2 installments of the game.

This 3rd game however, is just not the same quality and fun like the old 2 were.

Pros: just the fact that they made another oddworld game, cool
- The camera views are terrible
- The movement of the characters is also terrible
- The game is not actually fun, i played all through 50% of the game but im now dead bored of the gameplay, im stopping

My advice, get the first 2 games in the Oddworld series, this one is not worth it.

Having not fully played this since the original Xbox days, I am delighted to say that it is finally in a playable state for the PC! Truly an enjoyable, relaxed game. The characters, humour, environments all come together to form the perfect package here. There are no other games out there quite like this.

So pleasantly surprised when I learned that the game had been updated without charging anything extra to the consumer. Thanks developer for putting a lot of love into arguably my favourite game!

The fact that they didn't charge us for a new HD Remaster is really admirable in this day and age. Everything looks like it's been Upresed while still retainig its original look. Can't wait to play through this again. It's funny, this game was overlooked back in the day due to it being an Xbox 1 (No not One, the first one... dammit Microsoft) exclusive and the market being fairly inundated with 3D Platformers. Today it feels like we're kinda starved for games like this making it kinda fresh so yeah, thanks for making this finally playable Oddworld devs.

I dont know where to start (like with everything else I do), but I really liked this game. Just the way it played really appealed to me. Actually, thats really all I can say. Just go buy it, its a classic game for a great price and still holds up today.
