Oddworld Inhabitants Launches ‘Spirit of 1029’ Teaser Website

Oddworld Inhabitants has launched a new teaser website and Twitter account titled “Spirit of 1029.”

A message on the website reads:

“We are the spirit of 1029. We are many. We are coming. We will not stop. The power will shift and we will rise again.

We will not stop!

The fall of RF1029 was the spark to ignite a revolution. For too long, they have controlled their giant industrial machines, grinding the bones of our kind into dust in their endless pursuit of power and wealth.

We were taught that this is all there was: comply.

The truth was hidden from us. Our history was hidden from us. We were bred to work, raised to obey and forced to comply.

Our natural connection to mother planet was erased from the consciousness of our people. Lost was our knowing. Lost was our unity, our connection, our power and our purpose. All that we were was a commodity to be traded and exploited in the ongoing race for more wealth. What we should have protected, we were tricked into killing. What was worst for us, we were told was best. We were taught to trust those who would deceive us the most.

That has all changed.

The hero has shown all of us that our oppressors can be toppled. He has found our wild and knowing brothers. He has reconnected the factory-born to our natural world and ancient ways. He has lit a fire in our hearts that cannot be extinguished.

We will give help to those who are helpless. We will lend strength to those who are weak. We will fight for those who are defeated. Our movement will spread like a raging inferno and we will take back the power from those who have abused it.

We will not be silenced by the media circus. We will not be ignored. We will not stop. We will not obey. We will rise and we will rise again, until we have burned through our tattered bonds and razed the machine to the ground.

We will rise. Join us.

There’s a storm coming.”

The first tweet from the Twitter account reads,” “There’s a storm coming. Join us.”

Given the message and tweet, the teaser is likely related to the Oddworld: Soulstorm game due out in 2017. The “RF” in “RF1029” likely stands for “RuptureFarms,” the overthrow of which Soulstorm directly follows, and the “storm” mentioned in both the website message and tweet is likely referring to the “Soulstorm” in the game’s title.
