The Daily Deception is a newspaper that is created and published by the Industrialists. It is read by Sligs, Vykkers, and Glukkons alike. It has only appeared in Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee and is played as a cutscene after every level. It is displayed like most newspapers and is printed in black and white with many articles and subheadings. It is represented as an update on what Abe has achieved throughout the game to show how it has changed the industrial side and how it has effected it. The music is classical bulletin music and is typical to something to do with the news.

Articles in the Daily Deception Edit

The Daily Deception has its name for being particularly deceptive about the news they display in the newspaper but even so most of the news or articles they show are in fact true no matter how deceptive they may or may not be. As a notible example, in the Good Ending, Lulu clearly disbelieved the article that claimed he was to bid his entire fortune on the last can of Gabbiar, but this was made true thanks to Abe. The articles mainly contain information on what has happened to the industrial place once Abe and Munch have meddled there the front cover heading is usually a objective you had to achieve, but to the Industrial side it would be a dramatic bad thing. The articles are usually to do with Abe and Munch but sometimes have a funny antic article put in there somewhere.
