Oddworld Inhabitants has announced that it is breaking from the previous years of console exclusivity and bringing the remaining games in the Oddworld series to the PC.

"We are in the process of converting Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee and Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath to the PC, so that all four of the major Oddworld games will be re-releasing this winter in a package called 'The Oddbox," Oddworld's Lorne Lanning told BitMob.

"This will be the Abe games, Munch, and Stranger as one package for Steam's digital distribution network, as well as a few other digital distribution outlets."

The older Oddworld games, Abe's Oddysee and Abe's Exoddus, are already available on the PC and have been re-released on Steam and Good Old Games in recent years.

For those not in the know, Stranger's Wrath is a western-themed first person shooter based on the eponymous bounty hunter, while Munch's Oddysee is an action puzzler that bears the distinction of being one of the original Xbox 360 backwards-compatible games. Both games are set in the Oddworld universe that has become Oddworld Inhabitants' motif setting.

"[Regarding new games in the series,] we hope to have an announcement soon, but I've been saying that for awhile now so I'll just shut up and hope for the best," said Lanning.
