Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee and Adam's Venture Join the OnLive PlayPack - The Witcher Comes to OnLive UK

Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee and Adam's Venture: The Search for the Lost Garden are the two new additions to the OnLive PlayPack. With these two releases, the PlayPack is now at 130 games and counting. As for The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director's Cut, it was previously available for the OnLive PlayPack in the US for quite some time. After many wishes from the OnLive UK fan community, The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director's Cut has finally arrived on UK shores in the OnLive UK PlayPack. Sadly, none of the games that joined OnLive today are touch enabled.

Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee

Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee is a humorous platformer developed and published by Oddworld Inhabitants. It is the original game in the Oddworld series and dates back to 1997. Another game of the series that is already for some time in the OnLive PlayPack is Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. Let's hope Oddworld Inhabitants bring more games of the series to OnLive.

In Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee, players take control of Abe an incredibly ugly, yet strangely compelling Mudokon slave. He and his fellow Mudokons have been forced to work in the meat packing plant Rupture Farms, which specializes in driving species to extinction. Abe discovers Rupture's next meat specialty his own race of Mudokons and it's up to him to escape from the farm, rescuing as many of his fellow Mudokons as possible.

Adam's Venture: The Search for the Lost Garden

Adam's Venture: The Search for the Lost Garden is an adventure game published by Iceberg Interactive and developed by Vertigo Games BV.

Set during the 1920's, Adam's Venture delivers a unique combination of action oriented gameplay with classic puzzle solving, that takes you on an epic journey to the middle East to discover the legendary Lost Garden of Eden - but an ancient evil tries to prevent you from succeeding...

The Search for the Lost Garden is the First episode in the Adam's Venture series and introduces you to young explorer Adam Venture. Deciphering relics in an old Templar Church, Adam uncovers memoirs written long ago by a crusader who fought with Richard the Lionheart in the Holy Lands. The memoirs tell of a mysterious place with labyrinths of caves and grottos guarding the headwaters of four great rivers. Could this place be the legendary lost Garden of Eden? This discovery sets off a great adventure. Accompanied by Professor Jacques Saint Omair, his girlfriend Evelyn and his ever faithful dog, the team embarks on an epic adventure fraught with biblical mystery, intrigue and danger in their quest to find the legendary birth place of humanity.

The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director's Cut

The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director's Cut is a RPG game developed and published by Polish CD Projekt RED. It is one of the best RPGs, if not the best RPG game currently available on the OnLive cloud gaming service. Hopefully that will change soon, as the sequel The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings should be available soon on OnLive.

Set in a world created by best-selling Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, The Witcher combines spectacular action and an intriguing storyline. You are a Witcher, a warrior who has been trained to fight since childhood, subjected to mutations and trials that have transformed you. You earn a living killing monsters, and are a member of a brotherhood founded long ago to protect people from werewolves, the undead, and a host of other beasts. The game uses advanced graphics and physics systems for a high-powered blend of brutal action, complex RPG options and character configuration, and sweeping storytelling.
