Mudokonpop-XL

A fan render of a Mudokon Pop ad.

Mudokon Pops (known in its pre-advertising campaign as Something New 'n' Tasty) are the latest product to be produced by RuptureFarms. They were introduced as a counter-measure to combat the company's declining profits, which was caused by the falling sales of their flagship products. Mudokon Pops consist of processed Mudokon meat presented on a stick, not unlike an ice-cream pop.

Design change Edit

In the original version of Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee the logo for the Mudokon Pop is a quite gruesome picture of a Mudokon head on a stick. Whether this was supposed to be the final product design or a sadistic mock-up beta design by Mullock is unknown, but the design was ultimately changed for public ads and packaging. When Abe first enters FeeCo Depot an advertisement for Mudokon Pops is seen with the new design. The Mudokon Pops that can be found in Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD also carry the newer, friendlier design.

Development Edit

From a game development perspective the Mudokon Pop design was changed due to the Kobe child murders in Japan[1], an event that transpired during the development of Abe's Oddysee in 1997. While the changed design was originally only present in the Japanese version of Abe's Oddysee, all Oddworld games released worldwide after Abe's Oddysee also use the friendlier design, including Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty.

Trivia Edit

  • In Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD several RuptureFarms barrels can be found along the Mongo River. If any of these barrels are broken open, Mudokon Pops are scattered across the ground, suggesting that the production on the tasty treat was launched at other RuptureFarms franchises after RuptureFarms 1029 was shut down. Destroying all 10 of these barrels grants the player the Free the Meat achievement.
  • Although Abe is the only known Mudokon with stitched lips, the Mudokon Pop logo also features stitched lips.
  • When Munch expresses surprise that Gabbit eggs are consumed as a delicacy, Abe retorts with: "You know what's in a Mudokon Pop?"
