Before Lorne Lanning was ready to make the second part of the Oddworld Quintology, the success of Abe’s Oddysee convinced the company to make a rushed sequel: Abe’s Exoddus (1998).
While the game is rushed, to Lanning’s dismay. It had some good improvements from the first Abe game such as the ability to talk to multiple mudokons instead of just one and to possess other enemies besides Sligs.
Abe had a vision from three spirits that the Glukkons have been digging up Mudokon bones at Necrum. At Necrum, Abe’s Mudokon friends drank tons of SoulStorm Brew, which made them sick. Abe learned that the brew was made from Mudokon bones and tears.
Abe’s Exoddus was partially influenced by Lanning’s experience with alcohol during college because Abe chose not to drink the brew and warned the other Mudokons that the addictive drink could cost their lives.
The game lets people save tons of Mudokons but if you did not get enough, Abe is the next resource for the brew.
Abe’s Exoddus is a bit rushed but a good enough game in the Oddworld universe. It will be remade in 2018 as Soulstorm (2018) for various systems.
