This week Oddworld: Soulstorm drops on PS5, PS4, and PC. Get ready to “help” your fellow Mudokons. (You’ll probably get a bunch of them killed. It’s ok. It happens.)

I won’t name any names, but within Kotaku there are some folks who enjoy these games and the world. And then there are others, like me, who have always found them to be boring. I did like Stranger’s Wrath, but beyond that, I don’t get the appeal of the Oddworld games. Still, I will continue my tradition of trying to play new Oddworld games and losing interest after an hour.

For PS5 owners, this latest game, Soulstorm, is going to be free on PS Plus.
