Tea fiend and business proprietor Alf has once again graced Oddworld fans with his unique brand of wisdom, and has posted the first part of this month’s Dear Alf on the Oddworld Inhabitants website. Questions this time around poke about in the structure of Oddworld’s capitalist society, dig up some geography, ponder who would win in a fight (it is always a Scrab), and even pry a bit into Alf’s own affairs. Alf is all done with questions for now, but you can always submit more for Volume 2 through email, Twitter, Facebook, and Formspring.
Alf’s Rehab and Tea certainly seems to be back in full swing as this month’s Fan Art highlight has been posted over on the official Oddworld website. It looks like someone has taken notice of the large number of fans sporting Oddworld tattoos—in addition to the usual selection of artwork, Alf has put out a call for Odd tattoos, promising a dedicated gallery if enough submissions are sent in:
We’re also starting to notice a number of people with, getting or thinking of getting Oddworld tattoos. We can’t get enough of this dedication, and we want to show the world how much you love Oddworld, so we’re going to have a dedicated skin art gallery just as soon as we have a large enough collection. So if you’ve got Abe on your arm, a Slig on your shin, or a Wolvark on your… skin, then send in photos at the same address!
A recent update to Oddworld.com’s list of online stockists has revealed that Munch’s Oddysee and Stranger’s Wrath are now available to purchase on both the Stardock and Amazon digital distribution services. Amazon Game Downloads (which is available only to those in the US) currently does not list The Oddboxx bundle, and still has the old prices (twice as much as the current prices on other services).
