Oddworld collection heading to Steam

Oddbox gathers all four adventures.

All four Oddworld games will soon see a PC release in the Oddbox pack, developer Oddworld Inhabitants has announced.

Due before the end of 2010, the Oddbox includes the 1997 original, Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee, its 1998 follow-up, Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus, 2001's Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee and 2005's Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath.

It'll be the first time the two most recent games have been available on the PC. Neither Xbox title quite recaptured the quirky spirit of the originals, but Stranger's Wrath came closest, scoring 7/10 from Eurogamer's Kristan Reed.

Oddworld Inhabitants is promising "a few new additions and enhancements", to be confirmed soon.

What's that? You were hoping for a new Oddworld game? Maxis co-founder Jeff Braun revealed he was developing one back in 2008. Then earlier this year British developer Just Add Water announced it was working on the franchise.
