The Humble Store End of Summer Sale is into its final days, but there's still time to pick up one final free game: Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee, an adventure-platformer about a Mudokon slave who seeks to free his compatriots from the RuptureFarms meat processing factory.
Abe's Oddysee is a pretty old game—it originally came out in 1997—but also a very good one. And it's free, which is a tough price to beat. Head to the Abe's Oddysee page on the Humble Store, click the "add to cart" button, check yourself out, and then follow the emailed instructions to redeem your Steam code. While you're there, here are a few other batches of deals you might want to have a look at:
The Humble Store End of Summer Sale runs until 10 am PT on September 21.
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.>
While recently playing the wondrous but flawed Rain World, I was reminded of poor Abe. The original Oddysee was a belter, yes, but with Exoddus I feel the developers at Oddworld Inhabitants really perfected their art. They were able to keep all the usual stuff (running, jumping, possessing the baddies and saving your mates) while introducing a bunch of weird new ideas. It expanded the gamespeak , granted Mudokons different emotional states, and allowed you to possess your own farts. You can t ask much more from a game released in 1998. … [visit site to read more]
Excuse the rapidly-written post, but I only just noticed this and, at the time of writing, there are only thirty Earth minutes until the offer expires. 1997 platformer, and first game in the ongoing Oddworld series, Abe’s Oddysee is currently free on Steam. But not just in a free weekend sort of way – add it before 6pm UK time / 10am Pacific today and you get to keep it forever. … [visit site to read more]
Continuing its habit of giving away games for no apparent reason and with no strings attached, Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee is free on Steam today. Not for a limited time, not when you buy something else... it's just free.
You'll need to hurry though, because the offer ends Sept. 24 at 10 a.m. PT (that's early tomorrow morning in Australia), but once you install it, it's yours forever. Oddworld New 'N Tasty has a 50 percent discount as well, so if you like ugly-but-endearing green aliens then you ought to be happy.
Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee originally launched in 1997. New 'N Tasty is a remake of the original, with fancy new 3D graphics. It follows Amnesia: The Dark Descent as last week's freebie (presumably to promote Soma), so keep an eye out: there may be another free game next week.
