Guys ever just kind of thought about it?

SoulStorm.

Soul...storm...

As two separate words, I have no actual connotation to Oddworld.

Even when I think about what a "Soul Storm" would be, nothing Oddworldian comes to mind.

I can only imagine what the creative thinktank at OWI was going through as they were coming up with the name of this next big corporate baddie. Something edgy? something cool, yet deep? I know that if I was in that creative planning, I'd over think Soul Storm along with a myriad of different names, not knowing which one would pop.

So it's kind of weird to think that Soulstorm exists in my mind as one word, one idea: "Solsterm", or extended to be "Solstermbrewry". It has become completely different then the sum of its parts.

Probably because I was a stupid kid when it came out, and did not even care about such imagery.

Wasn't it a working title for Abe's Oddysee?

Curiously. Urban Dictionary have a meaning for it.

Also related to soul sprinkle, soul drizzle, soul downpour, and soul deluge which are less dramatic, but effective.
All are most often followed by the embracing of rainbows.
In some circumstances soul alluviation or soul freshet may occur. Though at first it may seem devastating, it is generally accepted to be for an ultimate greater good.

Woah, I needed that soul storm. I feel like a changed person. I love life.
That last part really reminded me of the Mudokons getting addicted to the Brew.

I imagine a dark purple vortex of plasma clouds and lightning, moving in to scour your sanity from the inside of your skull.

I know what Soulstorm is. It's a notoriously premature Dawn of War expansion.
