Molluck Vows: 'I Will Grind Him Where I Find Him' in 'Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee'.

RUPTUREFARMS, Oddworld--(BUSINESS WIRE)--September 16, 1997--

Three Days Until GT Interactive

Launches Game on 'Odd Friday,' September 19

In an ominous statement issued from within the cavernous halls of his headquarters, Molluck the Glukkon, chief executive officer of RuptureFarms, has promised to destroy every living thing on Oddworld if the "scrawny little sausage-meat known as Abe" is not found and brought before him by September 19.

"I will grind him where I find him!," screamed Molluck. "I want that worm and anyone who has helped him, and I want them now. I promise that I will not rest until this contemptible little piece of Slog slop is brought chained and manacled before me."

Spitting and choking on his cigar, Molluck was led away by his phalanx of armed Slig bodyguards.

Molluck has previously stated that he will begin production on a new meat product on "Odd Friday," September 19. The product is rumored to be made of Mudokon body parts and is a last-ditch attempt by the CEO to bolster declining profit margins.

Molluck's declarations cap a month-long verbal war of words between the besieged CEO and the overwhelmed Abe, a scrawny Mudokon laborer fighting to free his people from enslavement and extinction at the RuptureFarms meat processing facility. Abe's whereabouts on Mudos are currently unknown.

GT Interactive's new Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee for Playstation is shipping on "Odd Friday," September 19, with the PC version scheduled to follow later this month.
