Steam users can grab a copy of Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee for free today.

The original Oddworld game, first released in 1997, is free until Sept. 24 at 10 a.m. PT. Download it now and it's yours to keep.

Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee was originally released on PlayStation and PC. The platformer gives players control of Abe, a floor-waxing slave worker, as he attempts to escape from Molluck the Glukkon, who plans to turn Abe and his fellow Mudokons into food.

That free copy of Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee is being offered as an incentive for players to check out the game's remake, Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty, which is currently on sale on Steam at 50 percent off. For more on Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty, check out Polygon's Overview video.
