It's so weird when people debunk arguments that nobody on the planet would make or have made, and then say that we "spend too much time here".
You clearly haven't spent enough or you'd know that our entire problem with the scene is how goofy and bad it looks. I can believe a Fleech would swallow a Mudokon whole and then burp. It's fucked up and hilarious at the same time. Toby's eyes look like some intern fucked up the animation by warping them too much.
You'll never find an instance of a Mudokon physically morphing their body in such a cartoony way in the old games, and now that this is supposed to be the grittiest, most realistic depiction of Oddworld yet, it gives me cause for concern.
Remember guys, if you can't beat em, just pretend they said something completely different and nobody will notice.
Moreover, the comedy serves as an anchor to relatability
You're right, it is
relatable. I hate it when both my eyes choose not to conform to the physical limitations of my face.
