Oddworld Inhabitants co-founder Lorne Lanning has announced on the US PS Blog that Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee and Oddworld: Abe’s Exodus will be released on the PlayStation Store this Thursday for $9.99.
“We couldn’t have been more thrilled when we learned that the PlayStation Network was willing to offer our classic Abe games to an entirely new generation of gamers,” said Lanning.
“Finally, gamers who never got the chance to meet and play him when he first came out on the PSone system, will now get that chance to meet the guy who graced many magazine covers and proved the unlikely hero that captured people’s hearts.”
As for when Munch’s Odyssey and Stranger’s Wrath are coming to the PSN, Lanning said they are looking at ways to bring them over.
“We’re working on a strategy to bring them over as well. May take us awhile, but we hope to achieve what you’re asking for.”

Oddworld creator Lorne Lanning’s told Bitmob that the series is making a return in the not to distant future on PC.
“All four of the major Oddworld games will be re-releasing this winter in a package called The Oddbox,” he said.
“This will be the Abe games, Munch, and Stranger as one package for Steam’s digital distribution network, as well as a few other digital distribution outlets.”
And that’s not all. PS3 owners are about to get them too.
“We just signed the contract this week and the original Abe games will officially be coming to PSN very soon,” Lanning added.
There’s promise there of more Oddworld games, in addition.

According to this Variety report, former Brash chief creative office and CAA games agent Larry Shapiro has become the president of Oddworld Inhabitants.
Lorne Lanning’s developer is known to be working on a new Oddworld game – about which nothing is known yet – and the move will be seen as a sign that things are genuinely starting to happen.
“No one is more in stride with us than Larry. We both see the same future landscape,” Lanning said.
“It’s a petty radical departure from the contemporary landscape. While we think there’s a number of barriers to break through, we think there are tremendous opportunities on the other side of the barrier.”

He’s back. Oddworld boss Lorne Lanning has announced his return to the games industry by calling out consoles in general. As you do.
“Personally, I think the consoles are a problem,” he told GameDaily.
“Years ago I was excited about consoles, but anything that makes development more expensive, rather than better, faster, cheaper, I think is a step backwards. When I look at what’s happening, it’s a bit disappointing because the consoles are running into a place where affordable games are having a rough time getting out there.”
PC’s where it’s at, apparently.
“I’m more excited about what I see happening on PC because I see it allowing for more smaller games to be sold that can be delivered to anyone who’s connected at much lower price points,” he added.
