Back of Jewel Case (UK):
    Once you were just a slave-labourer in a meat-processing plant from hell...

    Now you're next on the menu!

    HIS FATE IS IN YOUR HANDS

    POSSESSION IS 9/10 TH'S OF THE LAW

    DON'T GET MAD; GET ELUM

    BETWEEN A PARAMITE AND A HARD PLACE

    STUMPED IN THE TEMPLES OF DOOM


    In a lush world of diabolical danger where everyone wants to eat you,
    you're the skinny guy with no weapons. Run, jump, hide, scramble and
    talk your way past the ugliest bunch of carnivorous crustaceans ever created.
    Unlock Abe's special powers then figure out your foes, and you might
    save your race. Don't and you're dinner! Enter Oddworld's surreal,
    sensory overload of pure gaming and claim your destiny. Saviour. Or salami.

    ABE'S ODDYSEE

    Abe's Oddysee - ab sofort auch als PC-Version!
    Unser Chef, Molluck, ist ein echter Fiesling: Er will mich und mein ganzes Volk eindosen! Aber damit nicht genug: Hinterhältige Kreaturen, verwickte Puzzles und mystische Tempelstätten erwarten Dich. In den Dschungeln von Oddworld und der Fleischfabrik Rupture Farms sind schon unzählige Konsolenspieler verschollen.
    Sind auch Du und Dein PC der Herausforderung gewachsen?

    As Abe you can whistle, laugh, hiss and fart. In a lush world of diabolical danger where everyone wants to eat you, you're the skinny guy with no weapons. Run, jump, hide, scramble and talk your way past the ugliest bunch of carnivorous crustaceans ever created. Unlock Abe's special powers then figure out your foes, and you might save your race. Don't, and you're dinner! Enter Oddworld's surreal, sensory overload of pure gaming and claim your destiny. Saviour. Or salami.
