Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee® - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Alice O'Connor)

Even in these days when we have so very many wonderful free games to play, it’s still a little exciting to be offered for free a game that usually costs money. Today, it’s Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee going free for keepsies. Free! No pennies at all! And only twenty years after the puzzle-platformer first came out and I missed it because I bought Blade Runner instead. Well well well, looks like I was savvier than I knew. Gotta take the long view, yeah? I bet anyone who bought Oddworld in 1997 feels a right mug. (more…)

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.

Some online stores give us a small cut if you buy something through one of our links. Read our affiliate policy for more info.

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]
