Update on Oddboxx PC tech issues

The recent release of the PC ports of the Xbox action games Oddworld Munch's Oddysee and Oddworld Stranger's Wrath has been met with some tech issues, as we reported earlier this month. The official Oddworld web site has posted up word that the main issues with Munch's Oddysee with the game crashing early on has been fixed for most users.

The other issue is performance and speed while running Stranger's Wrath on an ATI Radeon card. The web site states, "We are working with ATI to discover the root cause of the issue, and will hopefully be able to update you all on this as soon as we can." In related news, a post on the Steam message board forums indicates that the development team is thinking about putting in the graphical improvements for the PS3 version of the game in a future update for the PC port.

Final two Oddworld games coming to the PC this winter

Oddworld Inhabitants' first two games in their Oddworld series of action games were released for the PC and have since been sold as digital downloads from Steam, and other outlets. However the final two games (Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee and Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath) were console exclusives and never made it to the PC. Now, a new chat at Bitmob with Oddworld creator Lorne Lanning says that will be changing very soon.

Lanning reveals that the final two Oddworld games are now being ported to the PC and will be sold with the first two games in a big bundle called The Oddbox. The collection will be released via digital download outlets sometime this winter. As far as new Oddworld games, Lanning states, " . . . , we hope to have an announcement soon, but I've been saying that for awhile now so I'll just shut up and hope for the best."
