Following yesterday’s addition to Direct2Drive, GamersGate is now the latest online games store to stock the Oddboxx, as well as Munch’s Oddysee and Stranger’s Wrath, DRM-free. All Oddworld games on GamersGate, including Abe’s Oddysee and Abe’s Exoddus, are now being sold with a 50% discount for the next 12 days. Since yesterday, Direct2Drive has extended its 50% sale to Munch’s Oddysee and Stranger’s Wrath, although still only in the Unitied States region. The latest updates to Stranger’s Wrath have now gone live on Steam, although the latest updates to Munch’s Oddysee can currently only be installed manually. Stewart Gilray has stated that Munch’s Oddysee and Stranger’s Wrath will be DRM-free on Amazon Game Downloads, Stardock and newly-confirmed GOG.com.
IGN’s online game store, Direct2Download, is now the second digital distributor of the Oddboxx. Earlier today, the rival of Steam’s uploaded Munch’s Oddysee, Stranger’s Wrath and the four-game compilation, the Oddboxx. Unlike Steam, Direct2Download features Raymond Swanland’s Oddboxx boxart. The games are similarly priced on both Steam and Direct2Download, although Steam is currently holding a weeklong 50%-off sale on all Oddworld games and packages. Direct2Download has 50% off the Oddboxx in the United States region only. Other digital distribution services are expected to upload the Oddboxx shortly, including Stardock, Amazon, GamersGate, and others to be announced.
