Munch's Oddysee HD Vita Crash in SpooceShrub Forest (Update)

Update - patch released.

We’re actively investigating isolated reports of a bug relating to this week’s digital release of Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee HD on the PlayStation Vita from the PlayStation Store.

There’s an issue regarding the area shown in the screen below from the second level of the game, where Abe uses his Mudokon buddies to fight off a small horde of enemies.

When Abe uses the “Bounce” vending machine after the fight, the Vita may start to run at a lower frame-rate and then (in a small number of cases) lock up and require a reboot, potentially one in safe mode.

We released a patch alongside the main game that should mitigate this happening – as it did come up in testing – but for those experiencing the bug please rest assured that we’re dedicating all our available resources right now to this.

For anyone affected, please first ensure you have downloaded and installed the small 1.01 patch that came with the digital download of Munch’s Oddysee HD.

We’ll continue to monitor feedback and update this post accordingly. In the meantime, we’re available on Twitter to answer any queries.


Update, December 18th, 2014.

We’ve isolated and fixed the issue and are trying to rush a patch through as soon as possible. We’ll update again once we get confirmation on specific dates. Thanks for your patience.


Update, December 19th, 2014.

A hotfix patch has been submitted to SCEE and SCEA. The issue was with a faulty particle emitter in the vending machine that (very occasionally) caused the Vita’s GPU to crash. We’ll update again once we get an estimated date of the patch availability. It’s likely that a patch in Europe won’t now appear until the beginning of January, although we expect the SCEA patch to be available soon. Thanks for your patience.


Update, January 5th, 2015.

A patch for the above issue has been released in Europe and the UK. It’ll roll out across the US and Canada as soon as it’s approved. Ensure you download the patch from the Vita’s UI – the update is version 1. 02. Thanks for your patience.


Update, January 6th, 2015.

The patch has now also been released in the US and Canada.
