From VGC: “Oddworld’s hero, Abe, always was an ungainly creature. Awkward and clumsy, like most members of his enslaved Mudokon race. To escape servitude, he has to rely on stealth, makeshift tools and his one extraordinary power to telepathically possess his enemies.
Those are all very useful, but Abe lives in a world that expects him to be far more reactive and agile than he is. It’s a world packed with hazards and enemies that can end him instantly, punishing every small false move. And when you’re as ungainly as Abe, small false moves are never far away.”
