Oddworld is a fictional planet created by game developers Oddworld Inhabitants under direction of Lorne Lanning. The games set in Oddworlds universe feature a diverse set of sapient and non-sapient lifeforms. There are also many industrial corporations that don't care for the wellbeing of the planet, and because of this, its environment and ecosystem is collapsing, many of its species are critically endangered, such as steef and gabbits, and some have become extinct such as the meech. The surface of the planet is ten times that of earth, and in its history, turmoil had led to volcanic crusts forming and collapsing, leading to the formation of craters 1000 feet in diameter covering the planet. Oddworld also has 3 layers, with their own gravitational pull,climate and temperatures. In the games, only a small fraction of the continent mudos has been seen, leaving most of this world shrouded in mystery. What is certain is this is a harsh and unforgiving world, filled with peril. The mudokons tend to only live for about 40 years, due to the hazards and fearsome predators, and if the ecosystem and rustic parts of the planet seemed dangerous, the city-sized factories filled with security and traps and vykkers labs where animals are tortured for cosmetic products are even worse.
