In Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee, players take control of Abe, an incredibly ugly, yet strangely compelling, Mudokon slave. He and his fellow Mudokons have been forced to work in the meat packing plant Rupture Farms, which specializes in driving species to extinction. Abe discovers Rupture's next meat specialty, his own race of Mudokons, and it's up to him to escape from the farm, rescuing as many of his fellow Mudokons as possible. Abe's Oddysee uses many platform elements, along with puzzles and communication. Abe can speak to the other Mudokons, and must if you want to finish the game; his friends must follow him to portals, where they are rescued.
