GOG.com description - Windows (English):
    You're the Stranger, a mysterious bounty hunter on a mission to bag the ultimate prize. And you need that money like no one else because there is something very wrong with your health and the only way to fix it is a very costly operation. However the nature of your illness remains a secret and as you find out during the game, for a good reason.

    This world is full of bad guys so there is plenty to do. Each opponent is different, sometimes in the most bizarre way so you have to be careful and adapt your tactics to each target individually. So load up your double-barreled crossbow with up to 81 living ammo combinations. Track down those criminals with money on their head and bring them in, dead or alive. Welcome to the Mongo River Valley, the irony mining capital of the continent.

    ● Oddworld Stranger's Wrath HD features more than 80 characters remodeled from the original game, improved controls for the PC, and some hidden Easter eggs.
    ● Blast, Bash, or Smash - Take down ornery outlaws in 3rd-person, fists-flyin' brawls or 1st-person, both-barrels-blazin' shootouts
    ● Live ammo - choose how you abuse. Load your double-barreled crossbow with Chippunks, Boombats, and other "live" ammo
    ● Based in the unique Oddworld universe that brings to life the most bizarre creations

    You're the Stranger, a mysterious bounty hunter on a mission to bag the ultimate prize. And you need that money like no one else because there is something very wrong with your health and the only way to fix it is a very costly operation. However the nature of your illness remains a secret and as you find out during the game, for a good reason.

    In the dusty, undeveloped wastelands of Western Mudos, cantankerous townsfolk find their settlements besieged by belligerent outlaws. Along comes Stranger, a tall, dark and enigmatic bounty hunter with a mission to capture troublemakers and scoundrels and return them to civilized townships for incarceration.
    But Stranger is keeping a secret and needs expensive surgery to survive. In his quest to earn enough Moolah, Stranger reluctantly accepts the ultimate bounty from the owner of the Mongo River and suddenly his adventure takes a very different turn.

    ▪ Fire Live Ammo! Launch critters at your enemies. Distract them with Chippunks, encase them in Bolamite webbing, or destroy them with Stingbees and explosive bats.

    ▪ 1st/3rd Person gameplay.
    ▪ Easter eggs.

    Oddworld ist noch seltsamer geworden. In Oddworld Strangers Vergeltung, dem neuen Kapitel der preisgekrönten Oddworld-Serie, schlüpft der Spieler in die Rolle eines Fremden, eines mysteriösen Kopfgeldjägers, der für harte Moolah Banditen aufspürt. Ausgestattet mit einem speziellen Waffensystem, das dem Ausdruck "scharfe" Munition eine ganz neue Tragweite verleiht, findet sich der Spieler in riesigen Welten wieder, muss sich unterwegs hinterhältigen Gegnern stellen und gefährliche Herausforderungen meistern.

    Oddworld Strangers Vergeltung vereint ein Gameplay aus Ego- und Verfolgerperspektive mit beliebten Oddworld-Elementen und wartet mit einer brandneuen Engine auf, um ein einzigartiges Spielerlebnis zu vermitteln. Eine preisgekrönte Grafik transportiert den Spieler in eine komplexe und eindrucksvolle Handlung, in deren Verlauf sich der Fremde mit der wahren Natur seiner Jagd nach der ultimativen Belohnung auseinandersetzen muss.

    Angesiedelt in umfassenden und interaktiven Welten, die von alten Westernstädten über dichte Wälder bis hin zu Industriekomplexen reichen, besteht der Clou des Spiels im Modus Ego-Perspektive und dem Einsatz "scharfer" Munition. "Scharfe" Munition heißt nichts anderes, als dass Kreaturen, die im Laufe des Spiels gefangen genommen werden, als Munition für die einzigartige Doppel-Armbrust des Fremden dienen. Jede Kreatur hat eine andere Wirkung auf ihr Ziel, und verschiedene Kombinationen lassen Raum für eine Vielzahl Spielstrategien - von Aktionen aus dem Verborgenen bis hin zum absoluten Gemetzel. Mächtige Upgrades erlauben sogar noch größere Verwüstungen als die ursprünglichen Munitionsarten.

    Die Möglichkeit, in Echtzeit von Ego- auf Verfolgerperspektive zu wechseln, erlaubt es dem Spieler, mit Höchstgeschwindigkeit durch die detailreichen Welten zu laufen, Widerstände einzurennen und, mit dem Finger am Auslöser, Nahkämpfe durch eine Kopfnuss oder fliegende Fäuste einzuleiten.

    Auf seinem Weg wird der Fremde einer Vielfalt von Stadtbewohnern, Gegnern und Einheimischen begegnen, wie man sie nur im Oddworld-Universum findet. Durch die humorvolle und elegante Implementierung von KI und GameSpeak® können all diese NPCs wichtige Informationen enthüllen, wie eine Mission, ein Level oder das Spiel erfolgreich beendet werden können.

    Es heißt also, die "scharfe" Munition aufstocken, die getreue Armbrust bereithalten und sich für eine Spielerfahrung wappnen, wie es sie noch nie gab. Willkommen in einer schönen neuen Oddworld.

    Features:

    • Als mysteriöser Kopfgeldjäger spürt der Spieler Banditen für harte Moolah auf.
    • Lebendige Munition: Gefangengenommene Kreaturen werden als Munition genutzt Darunter: Chippunks, Fuzzles, Thudslugs und Boombats.
    • Munitionsupgrades erhöhen die Power und Effektivität der lebendigen Munition.
    • Wirkungsvolle Nahkampfattacken, wie beispielsweise Kopfnüsse oder Rammen
    • Umfangreiche und detaillierte Welten, wie z.B. detailreiche Städte, üppige Wälder oder riesige Fabrikkomplexe
    • Vollständig anpasssbare Doppel-Armbrust als ultimative Waffe mit zahlreichen Munitionskombinationen.
    • Übergangsloser Wechsel zwischen verschiedenen Spielstrategien sowie zwischen Ego- und Verfolgerperspektive per Tastendruck.
    • Nicht-linearer Spielverlauf: Je nach Wahl der Belohnung können Informationen gesammelt werden, wie Widersacher am besten bekämpft werden können.
    • Kommunikation mit Einheimischen per Tastendruck dank Gamespeak®-Technologie zum Sammeln wertvoller Informationen
