Oddworld Nightscape by BenDiAnna Oddworld Nightscape by BenDiAnna
A night time landscape in Oddworld with Abe up to his usual tactics.

I pulled some background content from an oddworld drawing I started but never finished of scrabania and mixed it with a photo I shot a couple years ago; had a lot of fun making my photo look like Abe's home.

The first two Oddworld games have been my favorites since they came out. I hold them close to my heart and they have inspired and fueling my creativity, art, and imagination ever since.

INNACURATE! You couldn't possess Scrabs in that location! Haha, just kidding. I don't care about that. You are awesome, this picture is awesome!

That made that game that much more difficult. Exoddus had possession of beasts, GameSpeak to multiple people, and Quiksaves. That would have made Oddysee about 1,000 times easier.

I wouldn't exactly say more difficult, but definitely more repetitive. I love the shit out of some oddysee no doubt, but come on, how many more controllers do I have to smash against a wall after failing to save 3 mudokons 86 times in a row, which I have to travel through 4 screens to get back to each time I die? (you know what part I'm talking about) That's all part of the fun though right? (:

I think I realized what part you were talking about for sure now. Is it the part that takes place in a bird portal right where this picture is? You go to that portal, there is a patrolling scrab, and you need to make one guy at a time follow you? If so, that drove me completely insane!

Yes! That's the one haha, good job! It's so satisfying when you finally become an expert at that one part and save those damn muds.

I found out an easy way to beat that after hours of frustration! I got the Scrab to fall of the cliff!

Ahh, I see you truly did become an expert at that part like I did. It takes a true master to trick the scrab into falling to its death.

It truly is. And there could be a few instances you're talking about. I always got mad that there was no definite way of getting the soundtrack to these games. Even gamerips were incomplete in many ways.

I loved these games.

I really wish they'd delve deeper into the history of this place.

We get snippets of how old the Mudokon culture and history is but it's never fleshed out.

Like the temples where the Scrabs and Paramites make their nests. Did the ancient Mudokons worship them or did they simply move in when the race abandoned them?

You know, lots of little questions like that.

Great picture by the way.

Perhaps you'll get your wish with the new games they are developing. :D

I also wish they developed more background on the world and have always thought it would be great told through a graphic novel. But at the same time, part of the mystique of the games comes from not knowing all the raw details and leaving it to your imagination, which can be more powerful imo. Sometimes it's the unanswered questions that keep you enthralled.

Thanks! :)

I've never actaually physically played Oddworld before back in the days.. :o
Although, I do remember happening to have seen my much older brother playing it on a Demo 2 disc for the Playstation 1 at some stage during the end of the glorious gaming days.. :bucktooth:

Oh, and I, for a second thought that the alienoids in the game you included in the pic happend to be statues, making it look more like a photo!:D
I think if you were to do something like this again, make sure to add shaded lightening textures around the characters since they facing bright starry skies its a note to give off a rather glowy and shing + reflective effec on their skins since most alienoids have a very...shiny texture on their coats, just like amhibiams. :P

Ooops, lol :lol:
