Oddworld: Soulstorm for PC is the next game from the platform-adventure games series that was started in 1997. It was created by Oddworld Inhabitants Inc. and the studio’s internal dev teams from California and Great Britain. Soulstorm continues the story from Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty, a 2013 remake of Oddworld: Abe’s Odysee, and is loosely based on Oddworld: Abe’s Exoddus.
The story in Oddworld: Soulstorm for PC is a rather dark take on the Oddworld universe and uses the same plotlines, ideas, views on consumerism and capitalism in a new way. Once again, we play as the likeable Mudokon named Abe. After the events of Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty Abe leads three hundred Mudokons, who he freed from the Glukkons’ grip. Our hero and his company are facing a dreadful situation. They have to go through a desert without any food, water, or hope. After some time, they find relief in a mysterious addicting brew.
Oddworld: Soulstorm for PC expands the ideas and gameplay mechanics from Oddoworld: New ‘n’ Tasty. The game is still a 2.5D platformer where we will have to tackle many puzzles and riddles. During our adventures we will have to rely not only on Abe, but also on other Mudokons we will meet.
