Currently, as a part of Ubisoft’s 35th anniversary celebrations, you have until next Wednesday, December 22, 2021, to grab Rayman Origins (the fourth installment in the Rayman series). The offer started on December 14, 2021 at 7:00 A.M. and will end on December 22, 2021, at 3:00 P.M. (your local time). This year also marks a celebration for the side-scrolling platformer, Rayman Origins’ 10th anniversary.
Discover or rediscover a universe full of gorgeous hand-painted 2D aesthetic and wonderfully inventive level design. In an article titled Rayman Origins is currently free on PC, the website Eurogamer just may say it the best, reading, “In its finest moments, Rayman Oranges goes toe-to-toe with the 2D platform game greats,” referring to what Simon Parker (a Eurogamer contributor) wrote in his 2011 review.
Yummy! The orange is a delectable fruit, but at least three more times, Rayman Origins is intentionally or unintentionally misspelled as Rayman Oranges. There are many in-game watercolors, which can be mistaken for bland colors, at times. Also, the protagonist, Rayman, is a bit orange, appearing like Sonny the Cuckoo Bird on a cereal box of addicting Cocoa Puffs.
I don’t know about you, but orange, the fruit, makes me think about an unforgettable catchphrase. Uttered by Kel Kimble on Nickelodeon’s television series, Kenan & Kel (from 1996-2000), “Who loves orange soda? Kel loves orange soda. Is it true? Is it true? Oh yes, oh, yes, oh, yes, it’s true, oooh! I do, I do, I do, I do-oooh!”
Oh, just add Kel Mitchel in a Fortnite game with a bottle of orange soda. Fortnite would redeem itself for some of the removed features (like the Submachine Gun 2.5.0, Guided Missiles 3.5.0 CU, and the Rocket Launcher 6.0) by having Kenan Thompson join along.
Mistakes are forgivable, but let’s dive right into the Rayman series. Ever since the original Rayman game was released in 1995, the series produced 45 games across multiple platforms.
