Today’s free game in the 15 Days of Free Games is Oddworld: New ‘N’ Tasty. You can find out if it’s worth picking up right here!
This year for Christmas, Epic is doing 15 days of free games, with each title only being available for 24 hours. Here’s today’s offering as well as what I think about it!
Epic Games Store: 15 Days of Free Games – 18th December 2020
Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty
Okay, I’m not gonna lie. I never played the Oddworld games back in the day, but I know that people absolutely loved them. 2D puzzle platforming was at its peak back when they debuted. I had a friend who loved that Abe’s farts let you possess other creatures. And to be honest, back in my teens and early 20s that toilet humour would’ve appealed to me as well.
That said, any sequel that comes so long after the originals needs to do something special or risk being seen as a cash-in. And I don’t know how this one holds up. It looks the part – definitely like a high resolution version of the old ones. It has a 78% Metacritic and 88% positive on Steam, so hopefully that means they did something right. Like I always say though, free is the best price to try something like this. So now is definitely the time to find out!
Here’s the link to my 15 Days of Free Games hub post for the full list!
