In Oddworld: Soulstorm, you will be able to craft, loot, and scavenge your way through nail-biting platform levels. Soutstorm will also require sneaking skills if you choose the non-violent approach to bi-passing enemies you encounter along the way.
There will also be plenty of puzzles to solve, weapons to craft as you deliver your followers to safety. The game also features some breathtaking graphics and visuals.
Oddworld: Soulstorm Features
Action Adventure Platforming: Evolving the platforming genre by adding RPG-lite elements with player agency to play as they like, whether aggressively or passively.
Narrative: A dark storyline with a twisted sense of humor that shines a light on the ironies that exist in the human condition.
2.9D: Epic environments with massive scale to explore by going into the world, rather than being limited to the traditional side scrolling platformer dimension.
Quarma: Quarma is a feature that reflects your actions in the game and will influence the eventual fate of Abe and his followers.
Scavenger’s Economy: Pickpocket enemies, loot lockers, sift through trash cans to acquire resources. Exchange them at vending machines to get products that give you more agency in how you chose to conquer the game’s many challenges.
Crafting: Use scavenged resources and vending machine products to craft items to use as weapons or tools against characters and obstacles.
Strength in Numbers: The more followers you save, the stronger the uprising becomes. Gift crafted items to followers. It’s up to you to decide whether they will be aggressive or passive.
Gameplay: Intense action platforming meets stealth and platform puzzling. Choose whether to burn it down, blow it up or simply try to sneak around it – but beware the deadly environments and enemies at every turn.
Leaderboards: All levels offer a tallying system, leaderboards, and badges.
