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.

Thanks!

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:

You know that saying better late than never? It’s an odd one, especially when you’ve kinda forgotten about a thing and then suddenly one day the developers are like, “Oh, remember that port of that game we released six years ago that wasn’t so good? Yeah, we’re fixing that now.” That’s exactly what’s happening with Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee [official site] The farty platformer kinda stank (and not in a fun way) when ported to PC back in 2010 but has now received a new port aimed at fixing most of its problems.

Turn that frown upside-down!

Oddworld: Munch s Oddysee first received a PC port way back in 2010, and has since troubled sorry purchasers with a variety of game-breaking bugs some can t even get it to start. Fixes were promised right after release, and nearly six years later, they re finally here. The developers built an entirely new port that's been on the Steam beta branch since February, and after five months it's finally taken over the main branch.

An update was pushed to Munch s Oddysee on July 24th, the specific details of which are vague, but according to a post on the Oddysee Steam news page, include multiple fixes and some 'HD' assets including higher resolution character models. The update also includes Steam trading cards if they're your thing. Personally, I'd just sell a few collecting dust in your inventory to scrounge up some change, because to encourage players to give Munch s Oddysee a shot, it s on sale for a measly $1.24. Better late than never, eh?I booted up the new build to see if the changes made a difference, and the game started without issue, running at 2560x1440 and a steady framerate. It s still one to play with a controller if you can, but finally, it seems the suite of Oddworld games are getting the PC treatment they deserve. Of course, I m a small sample size, so if there are any new problems, we ll find out soon enough.

Hi all.

Due to community feedback, we've built and today released a new port of Munch's Oddysee, replacing the current one, alongside a pack of trading cards, badges, backgrounds and emotes.

The new port will be maintained by us and developers Square One. It contains multiple fixes and some 'HD' assets including higher resolution character models.

You can read about the development of the new port during its previous beta phase, and leave us feedback, here:

Should you wish to return to the old port, which is no longer maintained, you can opt into the 'original' branch via properties > betas in the Steam client for the game.

Thanks for being fans!

Originally a launch title for the first Xbox, Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee has been on Steam since 2010. While it's probably little more than an interesting keepsake in the Oddworld series, the PC version is reportedly a very shoddy port. A quick scan of the Steam reviews paints a pretty grim picture: apparently for some users the game just doesn't work, with frequent crashes and other game breaking bugs reported.

So it'll come as a relief for those who purchased the game that a brand new port is releasing on Steam. The news was announced earlier this week on the game's Steam page, and best of all, it'll be free for anyone who owns the original version.

"Rest assured [that] we are committed to ensuring that all Oddworld fans get the experience they rightly deserve with our games," the announcement reads. "We will ensure that this version of Munch's Oddysee is fully supported and any bugs that arise are addressed."

No solid release date was provided, though details on a forthcoming beta test will be announced some time in the near future.

Hi Oddworld fans.

If you're seeing this message, it's because you own Abe's Oddysee - our first ever game. Thanks for that, and we hope you're having fun!

Did you know Abe's Oddysee now includes trading cards and badges?

If you enjoyed Abe's Oddysee, we'd like to tell you that the ground-up remake - Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty - is one year old on Steam this week.

Thanks so much for being a fan, and we hope to have news this year on what's next. :)

Stay Odd.
