    i have a problem with Strangers whrat i have buy the Odd Box from a magazine (LEVEL Magazine Romania) at the end i have to fight with 2 octopus or whatever it is called and i can t change the camera to 1 st view plz i wanna finish the game plz

    When I run the steam version of the game, which I purchased separately, not with the odd box, the launcher comes up but there are no resolutions listed in the selector. If I tell the game to play, the launcher seems to just shut down. I checked the task manager and there don’t seem to be any new processes running so I’m assuming that that’s what it did.

    I believe I meet the system requirements for the game, based on what I see in the store page.
    ATI Radeon 6620G video

    Any idea?


    I´ve just bought ODDBOX as a part of cover DVD (Level Magazine, Czech republic). I´d like to know
    if there is any chance to update M.O. and S.W.. It´s not probably a Steam version so I can´t update that through it. Thanx for help and sorry for English :-)

    I downloaded strangers wrath from steam but when I try to play it, it won’t get past he loading screen, but the audio sounds like the game is playing fine.

  • Igor

    Hello! Can you tell me where can I download the patch for munchs oddysee?It always crashes on my Win7.Thanks

    • Alf

      All online stores are distributing the latest version. If you bought an earlier version, it should update automatically. Where did you buy Munch from?

      • Nathan

        Hello, I am also having issues with the same bugs that have been supposedly fixed. I’m not sure if the patch automatically installed when I bought Munch’s Oddysee and Strangers Wrath from steam, because I am having issues with no sound in game or in menus. Where can i download the files for the patches directly, and where would I install them too? Also I am running Windows7. Thank you so much for the help.

  • CNicolls

    So i’ve been reading up on the problems with strangers wrath and it seems like if you have intel graphics card (sadly i have intel HD graphics 3000) then strangers wrath is unplayable? Is there ANY way to get it to work other than gettign a new computer?

    • Alf

      When the HDness reaches the PC versions, it will come with significant changes to the rendering engine that might make the game playable on your current set up.

  • william

    Munch’s Oddysee won’t launch :(( please help

  • Paul

    I was wondering if the patch would be available for those of us who bought Stranger’s Wrath via, or if it’s just for Steam?

  • tyler

    HELP! strangers wrath gets stuck on the loading screen when u first run program i can here it start up and play music and i can here the selection of the menu when i click the arrow keys so wtf i just can t see the game please help

    • Alf

      Just a black screen? Sounds like your system specs aren’t high enough. Double check, then get back to the support folks. Ol’ Alfie ain’t no technical whiz!

  • Rick

    I am so happy that you all decided to port Wrath to PC. I purchased Oddbox off of impulse. How can I get the patch? Thanks.
    P.S. – Have you all thought of a port of the Oddbox to 360 and PS3?

    • Gerry

      And I thghout I was the sensible one. Thanks for setting me straight.

    • Alf

      The patches download automatically if you have them on Steam. On other services, I’m not really sure.

      We always think about other platforms, we are platform agnostic. ;)
