GOG free game “Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee” + BIG DEAL Sale

Being provided with a free code of Stories: The Path of Destinies when pre-ordering Hob is all well and good, but it’s even better to receive classic platformer Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee for free without purchasing anything on GOG, although the BIG DEAL Sale has enough on offer.

It has been a while since I wrote about Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee and Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty, but despite being originally released in 1998, Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee is still as charming and as difficult today. The sociopolitical message of workers being quite literally worked to death and put into food cans has lost none of its weirdness, either. Being part platformer and puzzler, there’s enough hardcore gameplay revolving around worker Abe trying to escape a factory and rescue his fellow Mudokons to last for a long playtime.

The game is only available for free until tomorrow, September 21, 1PM UTC, so be quick to grab it while you can. This offer is also valid on Humble Bundle and even Steam itself, but of course this is only the DRM version and it’s missing the awesome soundtrack.

Official website

While you’re at it, make sure to check out the BIG DEAL sale on the GOG main page that will run until September 25, 10 PM UTC. It offers 200+ games with a discount of up to 90%. Many of these are at their highest-ever discounts, and some have never been discounted before. Just to give you some recommendations with the historically low prices: first-person adventure Obduction (already previewed here), Diablo-clone Throne of Darkness (also previewed here), sci-fi exploration game TACOMA (see preview here), old-school FPS with roguelike elements Strafe (again here), remade platformer Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap (also here), space sim EVERSPACE (same here), and twin-stick arcade shooter Nex Machina (see here).

Of course this list isn’t complete, with more titles added during the week. So make sure to pay GOG a visit once in a while before the offers expire.
