If you’re still on the prowl for more Oddworld informations even after we’ve told you the price to Cross Buy Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty across PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VITA, then there are worse places you could have crawled upon!

Welcome to Alf’s Rehab & Tea, where Alf is always eager to answer a small number of YOUR questions, almost every single week!

Jake And what is with all races in Oddworld having queens?? as in not Monarchy but Biology?? Only takes one mishap and it’s all over for Muds/sligs/gluks/slogs/whatever else has a queen

Well it ain’t all the races, but yeah there’s a bunch of us take that tactic. It’s a pretty good one! I mean why leave everybody to fend for themselves when everyone can just pitch in towards the survival of the mommas? With hundreds or thousands of children protecting you, that would have to be one mishap big enough to destroy any population anyway. It’s not like there only one queen per species, y’know! Yeep, ya think we’re new to this?

Lee Question for Alf or Crig the Slig, I’ve seen graffiti on some of the walls of RuptureFarms and Soulstrom Brewery. Who has doing all of it?

Don’t tell the brass, but we sometimes get away with it. You’re stuck in a boring job all day, you come across a bottle of fizzy paint, the nearest wall starts lookin’ more ‘n’ more like a canvas for whatever creativity ain’t been beat outta ya. Who cares that someone you care about could be the schmuck that’s gotta clean up after you? A chance like that ain’t every day. And no, it ain’t Sligs. Sligs don’t have a creative cell in their body.

BAR is abe a Good guy or a bad guy? Is Abe really a terrorist, like in a bad way, Alf?

Good guy, dingus. He’s fighting for the freedom of oppressed people across a whole planet. Just because some cockroaches in top hats might lose their diamond-encrusted carriages to the revolution, doesn’t mean you get to buy into their mainstream media agenda-shoving impropaganda.

Taylor Dose Abe have a bounty on his head? Cause yanno he’s considered a terrorist in Glukkon eyes. Do bounty hunters come after Abe or dose Crig try to capture Abe and turn him in?

Whoever drags Abe to the Magog Cartel, ideally kickin’ and screamin’, is getting the incentivization of their career – presuming they don’t learn too much of the wrong kinda thing along their journey.

SwirlyShy I’m not sure if anyone (or me) has ever asked you this, but are you left-handed or right-handed?

Oh ye of the false-tastic dichotomy! Stuffs don’t gotta be so one way or the other way only! I’ll have you know I am equally fluent with both hands at all skilled and unskilled tasks and challenges! I believe the word for that is ‘ambidexcellent’.

Now that I’ve rocked your Oddworld with my shocking revelations and weighty learnings, you have to learn how to satisfy your insatiable hunger for more! Step one is learning to budget… because one Dear Alf a week is all you’re budgeted for.

But don’t budget your questions! Keep them flooding in thick and fast, in the comments below or using the hashtag #DearAlf on Facebook or Twitter. See you next week for more Truth ‘n’ Tea!

      Hard at work making sure all the dots are crossed and teas are served getting New ‘n’ Tasty out to the fan-tastic people out there who want it! I’m still here, and I put out columns when I can. Sorry for not being able to keep up the weekly schedule, it will be back just as soon as I can squeeze them in. :)

    Dear Alf,
    Are there any legends amongst your village or the neighboring once that tell of Mudokons (before abe) that managed to survive trials like the once abe was challenged with in Paramonia and Scrabania and actually had the scars to prove it? How many mudokons in the past are said to actually have managed to aquire powers like Shrykull’s transformation and be endowed with some sort of mystical tattoos?

    p.s
    One more question: How many copies of “New N’ Tasty” do i need to buy (as and induvidual) in order to significantly support the production of “Oddworld: Squeek’s Oddysee” in the future?

      I’ve crunched the numbers and consulted the best Chroniclers tea can buy, and I can confidently declare that Squeek’s Oddysee is too far away to know! Every copy helps, but don’t go breaking the bank! After all, those Slig debt collectors don’t mess around.

      As for that prophecy mumbo-jumbo, eh, I’ll do some research and get back to ya!

    Hey Alf
    Do you think you guys will end up making a Munch’s Exodus and or a sequel to Strangers Wrath? I’m absolutely bursting to know what happened afterwards. Like, does Stranger find others of his kind and does Munch successfully raise the Gabbit eggs?

    Heya, Alf.

    I’ve got a question concerning New ‘n’ Tasty. Aren’t you worried about offending people with the “Four-fingered” concept again? Just concerned. Anyway, stay Odd!

    Ello Alf ^w^
    Just wondering how would Abe react if he saw an Alien even if was slightly smaller then him?

    The alien would be Delilah the Zelliah from the planet Juvenilia.
    Height 5’7ft

    Image of Delilah

    http://d.facdn.net/art/lornarosefox/1397273143.lornarosefox_delliah.png

    The silly but fun pipeline one off story for the art in development-

    “Some how Delilah ends up on Oddworld would have been captured by vykkers (darted by them)
    by using an experimental ufo to cyber jump to other worlds for more test subjects

    Little do they know that Zelliahs are more dangerous then they look not with just claws and physical prowess
    but the flexible like ribbon horns that act like whips that ether can cast hard blows if the ends are curled up like ram horns also uses to grapple.

    The horns having pointed tips can also be used scale walls similar to Paramites.

    The horns feel silky and light like ribbons but are physically hard crystalline form like a diamond.

    Zelliah horns are weak to copper much like how diamond cutters have copper wedges to cut diamonds.

    It would feel like a hot burning pain on the horns if say a copper baton hit another part of the body depending on the force it would be normal pain but Zelliahs are hardy and wilful and don’t quit easy.

    Any how Delilah would likely bust out of the lab using alpha waves from her sonar.
    (its a strange wailing siren sound its mostly used for songs but also is a cry if in extreme pain)

    The sonar would cause the lab machines to malfunction. Naturally to wanting to get the hell away…
    Delilah frantically beats up any poor sod that tries to stop her though would be a struggle with a big bro Slig would try to avoid.

    She ends up in some ruins deep in the jungles of Necrum thus encounters Abe.

    Zelliahs have some telepathic sense that allow to sense intentions to some extent.
    Thus would sense Abe is good but would be still wary and naturally shaken and still confused.”

    So thats it ^///^

    Dear Alf,
    Why do you think the Molluck wanted to make Mudoken Pops because you guys worked for the factory, so if they ate you guys, how would the factory run because they would be eating the workers?

    Hey Alf, I was wondering if there will be a huge war between you Mudokons and Glukkons (& Sligs? idk). Since Abe started the rebellion against the slavery of Mudokons, Are you or will be preparing for whatever comes in your way? (I’ll be rooting for you Mudokons!)
