From Press Release:
Oddworld Inhabitants have released their award-winning action-adventure platformer Oddworld: Soulstorm Enhanced Edition on Steam. It is also available on PlayStation, Xbox, and Epic Games Store.
Soulstorm is the story of hope, even in the face of insurmountable odds. Prized for their strength, the tasty meat on their bones, and how susceptible they are to Soulstorm Brew, Mudokons like our hero Abe, have been enslaved by a profiteering class.
The time for change has come, the time for a revolution is now. Picking up right after New ‘n’ Tasty’s epic adventure, you will be called up to help Abe on his journey to free more than 1,000 fellow Mudokons from the physical chains that bind them.
To confront an uncertain future and a forgotten past, you must use your gamer instincts and skills to help Abe. Armed with an array of tactics, from stealth to going full on ballistic by utilizing scavenged trash to craft powerful and incendiary weapons, you need to decide how best to bring the fight to your oppressors and save all the Mudokons.
In-game decisions and the total number of lives freed in each level will impact Soulstorm’s outcome. Soulstorm features four unique endings, whether you unlock the final two chapters and best ending, or one of the lesser endings is up to you and Abe.
ODDWORLD: SOULSTORM ENHANCED EDITION – GAME FACTS
Explosive Action-Adventure Platformer: Evolving the platforming genre by adding RPG-lite elements with player agency to play as you like, whether aggressively or passively. You will have to pickpocket your enemies, loot lockers, sift through trash cans, and find hidden areas to acquire resources. Exchange resources at vending machines to get products that give you more agency in how you chose to conquer the game’s many challenges. Acquire recipes to craft tools and weapons to use against opposing forces or solve problems. Arm your followers and watch the revolution begin.
Epicness: This isn’t a traditional 2D side scrolling platformer. Soulstorm is a 2.9D action adventure platformer with 15 hours of gameplay, and dozens more for achievement hunters and perfectionists. Epic environments with massive scale to explore by going into the world, rather than being limited to the traditional side scrolling platformer sense.
Start a Revolution: A dark storyline with a twisted sense of humor that shines a light on the ironies that exist in the human condition. As a slave to big business, a cog in the corporate machine being grinded to death, Abe tries to save them all and along the way he goes from a nobody to potentially starting a global revolution.
Completionists: Can you save every single Mudokon in the game, there are more than 1,000? Can you achieve the best ending and unlock the final two playable levels? Can you scavenge every trash can and locker, kill or safely apprehend every antagonist, find every hidden area, collect every jelly? 3+m players have already had the opportunity to do it?
Multiple Endings: Soulstorm has 15 levels, with two additional unlockable levels at the end of the game (making for 17 levels in all). There are 4 types of endings in the game. At the end of each individual level, you receive a Quarma score, which is based on the number of Mudokons you save. You must save at least 80% of the Mudokons in a level to achieve a good score, but to make it clear, you don’t have to save any in order to progress through the game’s first 15 levels. If you save at least 80% in up to six levels you will earn the worst ending. If you achieve that score in at least 7 and not higher than 11 levels you unlock the bad ending which has an explosive ending cinematic. If you save 80% in at least 12 of the 15 levels, you earn the good ending unlocking an additional cinematic and levels 16 and 17. Lastly, if you secure 80% in all 17 levels you earn an additional ending (newspaper cinematic).
