Following yesterdayâ€™s addition to Direct2Drive, GamersGate is now the latest online games store to stock the Oddboxx, as well as Munchâ€™s Oddysee and Strangerâ€™s Wrath, DRM-free. All Oddworld games on GamersGate, including Abeâ€™s Oddysee and Abeâ€™s Exoddus, are now being sold with a 50% discount for the next 12 days. Since yesterday, Direct2Drive has extended its 50% sale to Munchâ€™s Oddysee and Strangerâ€™s Wrath, although still only in the Unitied States region. The latest updates to Strangerâ€™s Wrath have now gone live on Steam, although the latest updates to Munchâ€™s Oddysee can currently only be installed manually. Stewart Gilray has stated that Munchâ€™s Oddysee and Strangerâ€™s Wrath will be DRM-free on Amazon Game Downloads, Stardock and newly-confirmed GOG.com.
IGNâ€™s online game store, Direct2Download, is now the second digital distributor of the Oddboxx. Earlier today, the rival of Steamâ€™s uploaded Munchâ€™s Oddysee, Strangerâ€™s Wrath and the four-game compilation, the Oddboxx. Unlike Steam, Direct2Download features Raymond Swanlandâ€™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.
