How to Train Your Scrab by Arvata How to Train Your Scrab by Arvata
Abe and a Scrab, located somewhere in Scrabania.

Does anyone even remember these guys? I love scrabs so much.
And in case you haven't guessed already, this is the Oddworld version of the friendship scene (i113.photobucket.com/albums/n2…) in "How to Train Your Dragon" which just popped into my mind earlier.

No, I have no idea how the outcome of this encounter will be like. Perhaps not exactly like in the movie.
Also, I know Abe originally has four fingers, and that he was re-designed because of some.. complaints(wth)? Either way, I decided to leave it neutral here, since you won't really be able to see his fourth finger even if he has it.

I heard they're making a new version of "Abe's Oddysee", with upgraded graphics and different ways to progress through the game, including no more "loading pages", which the two first games are quite known for. Sounds pretty neat, though I'm sure the old version will remain a classic ^^

I remember this game, my uncle had it, wasn't it that 2D platformer wi the alien thing that would hypnotize the enemy by going "U-U-U-U-U-U_etc"? I loved that game!

Scrabs are my favourite, no matter how much they enfuriated me... Replaying all the Oddworld games now, and I'd be interested to see the how the New 'n' Tasty version of Abe's Oddysee turns out!

Anyway, stunning work on this, you did amazingly!

Looks really awesome, I'm replaying Abe's Oddysee at the moment and had to look up some art on deviant! c:
But what do you mean with no more loading pages? Because I actually haven't seen any long loading pages while playing the game..

:iconarvata:
Arvata Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2013
Thanks! ^^
Oh, and I mean the way they sort of "flip the page" of your screen whenever you go to the very edge of it, instead of the camera following Abe wherever he goes regardless of his position. Like, if you accidentally wake up a sleeping Slig you can easily run out of the static page and back again, and it'll have reset back to sleep. Apparently it won't be like that in the remake, so the way you have to deal with situations will be different. I'm eager to see how that's gonna be like ^^

I really hope they will make the games just as awesome as the original one's and don't ruin it or something c:
And ow.. I see what you mean.. Yeah I guess it will be better if you can't just run away, but you will proborably have people just killing themselves to get the same effect..

Agreed! They better make it impressive enough to live up to the series!
And you have a good point there xX Ugh.

scrabs were cool but oh so annoying in the first two games :rofl: would have been nice to make them tame (though you could posses them in Abes Exoddus =D)

Totally agree! And yeahh, I loved being able to possess them there! ^^

though they made the levels 50 times more complex to accommodate for the convenience of being able to possess them :rofl:
