1. INTRODUCTION
================
This is a script for the game Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee. It's an incredibly
unique game, filled with creatures you'd never have been able to imagine in
your wildest dreams. The story for Abe's Oddysee is rather simple and
straightforward, but that does not detract from its quality. (And the Dr.
Suess-like rhyming in some parts only makes it better, in my opinion.) This
script is for those who have played the game and want to remember a part of the
story they forgot, or for those who have never experienced this wonderful game,
and want to see what it's all about. This is not to be a substitute for playing
the game; no script could ever capture the experience of running around a
factory, evading Sligs and rescuing Mudokons.

I have tried to make this script as accurate as possible, going so far as to
listen to the speech in the background. However, due to the narration and quite
a bit of mumbling, it was difficult at times to hear what was being said, so
I've only recorded those lines which were easily decipherable. Signs and ticker
messages will not be included in this script, though some are quite funny.

Asterisks (*) will be used to denote the visual part of these scenes, and
"Narration" is Abe narrating his story (not to be confused with Abe speaking in
the scene itself). Transitions between scenes will be described within hyphens
(-).

2. THANKS
==========
Quite obviously, I wouldn't be writing this if Lorne Lanning and the others at
Oddworld Inhabitants hadn't made this game. I would like to offer a huge thanks
to them for making such a unique and enjoyable game. It's people like them who
vitalize the gaming industry, venturing out into untried territory and trying
new things.

I would also like to thank the people who keep GameFAQs up and running. This
site has been very helpful to me too many times to list, including helping me
finish Abe's Oddysee itself. And, of course, thank you for putting up my FAQ.

Last but not least, thanks are due to Serpentine Cougar (who also goes by
Serp_Coug) for encouraging me to make this and providing me with the ASCII art
for the logo.

Thank you all!

presents
An A.L.I.V.E. Experience
Abe's Oddysee

-------------------------
3b. THIS IS RUPTUREFARMS
-------------------------
*A large factory comes into view, with a large sign in the shape of a Glukkon
head that reads, 'RuptureFarms'. Inside the factory, large chunks of meat go by
on conveyor belts, observed by Mudokon workers. The meat is packed into large
barrels, which are stamped with the RuptureFarms logo.*

Narration: This is RuptureFarms. They say it's the biggest meat-processing
plant on Oddworld. I used to work here. Well...I was really a slave. Like all
the others.

*A bluish Mudokon is hanging by his wrists in a small prison cell, groaning
groggily.*

Narration: That's me! My name is Abe. I WAS employee of the year. Now I'm dead
meat. I crossed the meanest boss in the world: Molluck the Glukkon.

*Molluck is shown - a cruel-looking Glukkon with a cigar sticking out of his
mouth.*

Narration: My whole life changed in just one day. I was working late one night
at RuptureFarms.

*Abe pushes a cart through a deserted hallway, humming tunelessly to himself.
As he passes posters of the various food products made in RuptureFarms, he
looks up at them and rubs his stomach appreciatively.*

Narration: We used to make Meech Munchies
Until the Meeches were through
We still made Paramite Pies
And we made some good Scrab Cakes too
I thought I had a good job
But that was before I knew
How we'd make New and Tasty
I was still to find
The truth, it turned out
Now THAT would blow my mind

*Abe sneaks over to a doorway and looks down on a board meeting of the
Glukkons, who are looking at a screen that says, 'Annual Board Meeting.'*

Slig: Okay. Here y'ar.

*A line graph appears on the screen, showing the falling profits of the
factory. The Glukkons murmur worriedly.*

Glukkon1: Hey guys, ya see that? How we gonna...

Glukkon2: Yeah, they're goin' down.

Narration: The Glukkons were scared
'Cause profits were grim
Paramites and Scrabs
Had been turning up thin
But Molluck was cool
He had a plan

Glukkon3: Hey, what're ya doin'?

Molluck: Watch. *turns to Slig* Show 'em.

Slig: A'ight, boss.

*A new display appears on the screen: a Mudokon, the various types of meat
marked out on it. The Glukkons laugh and chatter excitedly at this brilliant
idea.*

Narration: This new kind of meat - it was us!

Glukkon1: We'll chop THEM up!

*Abe, trembling, turns away from the door and races off down the hallway. A
security camera follows his movements.*

Narration: I just had to escape
I just had to be free
And I didn't even know
I had a destiny
So...GET ME OUTTA HERE!!

*A Slig hurries down the hallway after Abe.*

-After you lead Abe through a considerable length of the factory....-

----------------
3c. BARREL RIDE
----------------
*Abe rolls along the floor, then falls off the end into a barrel of meat.*

Abe: Ooh! Yuck!

*He shakes bits of raw meat off his face and paws, but while his attention is
elsewhere he gets hit in the head by a piece of overhanging machinery.
Momentarily knocked out, he falls down into the barrel - just in time, for he
passes right by two Sligs deep in conversation.*

Slig: *mumble mumble* Yeah... *mumble mumble*

*After passing the Sligs safely, Abe gets back to his feet, shaking his head to
clear it. He rocks the barrel from side to side, and then the barrel tips over,
depositing Abe onto the ground below.*

-The security surrounding RuptureFarms is extremely thick, but when you manage
to guide Abe past the Sligs, Slogs, mines, and motion-sensing beams....-

---------------
3d. ABE'S MOON
---------------
*Abe skids to a halt at the edge of a cliff and looks up at the moon.*

Narration: I had just got past those Slogs
When the strangest thing I saw
A big moon was before me
And its face...was my paw!

*Noticing the shape of the craters on the face of the moon, Abe holds his paw
up to it. His paw fits the shape of the moon's face perfectly. Suddenly, the
ground beneath his feet crumbles and he skids down the side of the cliff until
he hits his head on the ground at the bottom and is knocked out.*

Narration: Then I fell down a cliff
And smashed my head
When some Big-Face appeared
And said I was dead

*A 'Big-Face,' a Mudokon wearing a huge tribal mask almost as long as his
entire body, appears before Abe and begins to chant. His chanting levitates Abe
about a foot off the ground, and Abe has visions of Paramites and Scrabs,
creatures native to Oddworld.*

Narration: Said our land was changing
Was imbalanced at best
He told me my fate
Was to rescue the rest
For Paramites and Scrabs
Had been sacred once
But that was before RuptureFarms
Turned them into lunch
And they live in the temples
And that's where they still nest
And facing these creatures
That was my test

*When Abe comes to, he finds that he is in front of a large temple with huge
statues of Mudokons on either side of the doorway. He gets to his feet and
runs, in slow-motion, into the temple.*

-When you first come to the temple of Paramonia....-

--------------
3e. PARAMONIA
--------------
Narration: I had visions of Paramites living in the wild
How they were before I was a child
Then I saw what we did, ignored their cries
Cut 'em up for Paramite Pies

-After completing the temple of Paramonia....-

------------------
3f. PARAMITE SCAR
------------------
*Big-Face chants over an altar-like stone, and Abe appears with his torso lying
across it.*

Abe: What?

*Big-Face continues to chant, and electricity shoots out from his clasped paws
onto one of Abe's paws on the altar-stone.*

Abe: Owowowowowowowow!

Narration: The Big-Face said I'd learned much
Throughout my quest
This handscar would help me
For more dangers await
I would need its full power
To complete my fate

*The electricity stops, and Abe looks down at the back of his paw to see that
there is now a tattoo-like scar of a Paramite on it.*

-When you first come to the temple of Scrabania....-

--------------
3g. SCRABANIA
--------------
Narration: I had visions of Scrabs safe in the wild
How they were before I was a child
Now they're cut, ground and mashed into little cakes
Scrabs destroyed for profit's sake

-After completing the temple of Scrabania....-

---------------
3h. SCRAB SCAR
---------------
*Big-Face chants over an altar-like stone, and Abe appears with his torso
lying across it.*

Abe: What? Oooh!

*Big-Face continues to chant, and electricity shoots out from his clasped paws
onto one of Abe's paws on the altar-stone.*

Abe: Eee-ah-eee-ah-eee-ooh!

Narration: My test was completed
I expected to rest
Then the Big-Face revealed
The intent of my quest
The two scars together
On the back of each hand
They could shut down RuptureFarms
And restore the lost land

*The electricity stops, and Abe looks down at the back of his paw to see that
there is now a tattoo-like scar of a Scrab on it.*

-Soon after this revelation....-

----------------------
3i. SHRYKULL REVEALED
----------------------
*Abe stands on the top of a cliff at night, arms outstretched and looking
perhaps a little nervous. Birds flutter around him, and then turn into
electricity that connects the scars on his paws.*

Narration: With hand scars complete
The spirits took form

*Abe turns briefly into the Shrykull, a terrifying monster that looks somewhat
like a mixture of Paramite and Scrab, and then turns back into Abe. He looks at
his paws, then rubs them together with glee.*

Abe: Woah, yeah. Yeah!

Narration: Now my chant had power
RuptureFarms should be warned

-When you lead Abe back through security and into RuptureFarms once more....-

--------------------
3j. MULLOCK WATCHES
--------------------
*Mullock watches a screen that shows Abe running through the factory, evading
Sligs and rescuing Mudokons. Mullock turns to a Slig next to him.*

Mullock: GET HIM!!

Slig: Okay, boss! I'm on it!

*The Slig scurries away. Mullock turns back to the screen, muttering to
himself.*

-When you lead Abe through RuptureFarms a second time, you eventually come
across a certain switch....-

----------------------
3h. THE FACTORY HALTS
----------------------
*All the machinery in the factory halts, and the lights turn off.*

Narration: I'd found the switch
To kill most of the power
And there I was
In the final hour

-Directly after this....-

----------------
3i. WHAT A DRAG
----------------
*A Slig hits Abe in the head with the butt of his gun, and Abe falls over,
stunned. Two Sligs drag him off by the ankles.*

Narration: Well, I rescued Mudokons. But who's gonna rescue me? 'Cause here I
am, face-to-face with Mullock the Glukkon.

*Abe is hanging by his wrists in the same cell we first saw him in. Mullock and
the ever-present Slig come in.*

Slig: Can I-?

Mullock: Oh, sure.

*The Slig lights Mullock's cigar.*

Abe: Oh, no!

Slig: Now, boss?

Mullock: KILL HIM!

Slig: Now?

Mullock: Do it!

Slig: Yeah!

*The Slig pulls a lever and a trapdoor opens beneath Abe, exuding a sinister
reddish glow. Abe struggles desperately.*

Abe: Oh, please. Oh, please!

-Depending on how many Mudokons you saved throughout the game, you will get
a different ending. If you didn't save enough....-

---------------
3j. BAD ENDING
---------------
*Big-Face and three free Mudokons stand around a fire, arguing.*

Big-Face: But it's Abe!

Mudokon1: [something I can't understand]

Mudokon2: Did you see him?

Mudokon3: Yeah, he didn't do much!

Big-Face: But Abe...he's one of us!

Mudokon1: He wasn't any good!

Mudokon2: Yeah, he was really not good!

Mudokon3: He shot us!

Big-Face: Well, what do you think?

Mudokon1: He was a shmuck!

Big-Face: What about you?

Mudokon2: I don't get it!

*Meanwhile, in Abe's cell...*

Slig: Now, boss?

Abe: No, guys, please...

Molluck: Do it!

Mudokon3: Let him!

Abe: Please! No, no!

*The Slig pulls the lever again. Abe falls down through the trapdoor and bits
of his flesh fly up through the door. Molluck and the Slig laugh evilly.*

-If, however, you managed to save the majority of the Mudokons you
encountered....-

----------------
3k. GOOD ENDING
----------------
*Lots of Mudokons chant in a circle, generating electricity that shoots up into
the sky, then down again into RuptureFarms.*

Abe: No, no, no, no!

Slig: Hey, boss-

*Suddenly, he gets hit by elecricity.*

Slig: Ow, ow, woah!

*He dies. Molluck is surprised, but then he gets hit by elecricity too, his
large cape burned off of his body.*

Molluck: Ow, ow! Ooooh!

*He dies as well.*

Abe: Oh, yuck!

*Big-Face appears in the cell and looks down at the corpses on the floor.*

Big-Face: Woah.

*He begins to chant, and Abe begins to glow, his feet drawing up unconsciously
beneath his body. Abe turns into birds, which fly away and teleport him to the
top of a large boulder where all the free Mudokons are congregated. Peaceful
Scrabs and Paramites are also there. They all cheer. Big-Face appears next to
Abe and lifts one of Abe's arms triumphantly. Abe smiles, then farts.*
