GOG.COM is kicking off their BIG DEAL Sale by offering up the action-adventure platformer Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee free for the next 24 hours. First released back in 1997, the game features fantastic and somewhat bizarre graphics with challenging gameplay, making it “one of the best and most famous platformers of all time.”
If you’ve played Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee before, here’s a chance to revisit it, if not, now’s your chance to experience this highly rated game first hand.
In a lush world of diabolical danger where everyone wants to eat you, you’re the skinny guy with no weapons. Run, jump, hide, scramble and talk your way past the ugliest bunch of carnivorous crustaceans ever created. Unlock Abe’s special powers, then figure out your foes, and you might save your race. Don’t, and you’re dinner!
Abe is a first class Mudokon floor-waxer for RuptureFarms. He was catapulted into a life of adventure when he overheard plans by his boss to turn all the Mudokons into Tasty Treats as part of a last-ditch in Molluck the Glukkon’s meat-packing empire. During his escape from RuptureFarms, Abe received a vision from the mysterious Big Face, showing Abe that he must not only rescue his fellow Mudokons, but also protect all of Oddworld’s creatures from the predatory Magog Cartel.
Enter Oddworld’s surreal sensory overload of pure gaming and claim your destiny. Saviour or salami? You decide.
Not only do you get the game for free, but you also get a digital manual, HD wallpaper, 12 HD series wallpapers, the soundtrack, 11 avatars, map, and a desktop theme.
