“Retcon”

Oddmeme History

gluk
“Retcon” (short for “retroactive continuity”) refers to its usage—midly ironic, although improper—by fans (mainly from the Oddworld Forums and Oddworld Forums Discord), shortly after Lorne Lanning’s keynote of September 22, 2017 at the EGX entitled “Brewing Oddworld: Soulstorm”. The Brewmaster, Phleg, Dripik and Aslik from Abe’s Exoddus have been apparently “supplanted” by three new Glukkons in Oddworld: Soulstorm. Nonetheless, either timeline is canon unto itself, neither supersedes the other: Abe’s Exoddus thus hasn’t been technically “retconned” given the fact that Soulstorm still remains the sequel of New ‘n’ Tasty.
