Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee

Limited Run Games had another big release today with their physical release of Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee on PlayStation Vita.  Unfortunately, things didn’t go so well for many hopeful collectors. Limited Run had a Collector’s Edition and a Standard Edition Of the game, but neither one lasted more than a minute.

The game had a fairly decent print run, with 2,000 and 3,000 units, respectively.  The good news is that there is still a small glimmer of hope.  You can open up a support ticket and get on the publisher’s waiting list.  Now, this is a very slim chance, but it’s still a chance.

Limited Run sets a limited to how many copies each person can buy, and it looks like many people broke this limited.  It’s too bad we get some bad apples in this hobby that try to ruin it for everyone else.  I have been successful at getting myself a copy of every Limited Run release that I wanted, but this week was different.  Oh well, you can’t get them all.  But, like I said, some bad actors broke the rules so, that means that some of those copies will be back on their site for sale in the near future.  If you’re not lucky with the waiting list, your only other option is eBay.  It’s unfortunate, but when a product is both popular and limited you can’t really stop the scalpers.  It’s almost like a double edge sword.  You want a company like Limited Run to do well, but the more their popularity grows the harder it will become to secure a copy for their hotter releases.


Long Awaited Release: Oddworld Munch’s Oddysee HD

It has been a long time coming since a physical release from the Oddworld Inhabitants. The last time they poked their heads out was in 2014 with the release of  “Oddworld New ‘N’ Tasty”. This is a remake of their 1997 classic: ‘Oddworld Abe’s Oddysee’. It was not long ago “Oddworld Strangers Wrath HD” was released by Limited Run Games, which at the time left only one game to be released in physical format.

What game is that, you ask? Well, no other than ‘Oddworld Munch’s Oddysee’. This is the first 3D Game in the Oddworld series and was originally made for the original Xbox  back in 2001.  The good news is that this classic has been received a HD facelift, which originally dropped on the PS Vita and Play Station 3 back in 2012. The only problem was that it was released digitally!

The long wait is finally over and ‘Oddworld Munch’s Oddysee’ will be released on February 23rd in physical form through Limited Run Games!  Check it out for yourself! Here is the Oddworld Inhabitant’s Facebook post confirming the date of release.
