This is Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee all over again, but bigger and with 299 Mudokon slaves to free. It is definitely New and Tasty thanks to the new engine, and almost as broken as the original game.

Welcome to my new and improved any% single segment with Deaths and Resets.

This run improved my published run here on SDA and this run managed to get a sub 21 in-game time and now the in-game time is 20:18. I checked the in-game times on Livesplit. 20:12 time shown at the end of this video was a run which I did in Decmeber 2015 but the RTA time was bad due to number of the re-starts in The Boardroom. My RTA time with loads for this run is 23:39.

This run introduces small improvements which include:
-A new way to skip the first screen transition in the Monsaic Lines.
-A new way to jump over the wall in Monsaic Lines.
-A teleport glitch at the end of the Paramonian Temple after completing all the rooms.
-A glitch in the Stockyards Return which takes you to a different location which saves time due to how close Abe is to the door.
-A better Boardroom time. Made a mistake towards the end but this run is smooth all the way through.

I am currently working on Single Segment Abe's Exoddus which the route itself will be slower than my current segmented run (because it's difficult to get perfect RNG all round) but it will be worth the attempts and worth the submission.

Thanks for watching my run. Any questions? You can contact me on the SDA Forums.

Oddworld: New ’n’ Tasty is a 2.5D remake of Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee released in 2014 on the PS4 and February 2015 on the PC. This run is the major skipless run and it is the default any% category. It is played on the hard mode.

The speedrunning community go for the in-game time as it’s easier to compare against. It is quite difficult to record a modern game like this without any lag. I was successful however in achieving a new in-game World Record for this category and got a 53:18. There were a few mistakes in this run due to randomisers but overall I think this was a nice run.

The tricks used in this run are the bottle cap jump which allows Abe to perform a bottle cap jump over some ledges.

This run category was featured at SGDQ last year when Starwin held the World Record before Qwerku did as he got 53:20, but then I bopped it with a 53:18 in-game time. I hope you enjoy this run. Any questions? You can contact me on the SDA Forums.
