Oddworld Inhabitants Inc. is an American video game developer founded in 1994 by special-effects and computer-animation veterans Sherry McKenna and Lorne Lanning. The company is primarily known for the Oddworld Quintology, a series of award-winning video games about the fictional planet of Oddworld and its native creatures. The series debuted with Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee in 1997 and continued through Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath in 2005, which is currently the last new Oddworld title to be released.

Oddworld Inhabitants took a break from game development for a time following the release of Stranger's Wrath, even though it had already begun preliminary work on its next Oddworld title, The Brutal Ballad of Fangus Klot. However, it remained an active, operating company during this period, primarily through the development of a movie called Citizen Siege, though to this day it has not been released.

Currently, the company has returned to the video game industry, though so far its role has mostly been in guiding UK-based developers Just Add Water in resurrecting the Oddworld franchise through the remastering of existing titles and the development of new ones. On July 16, 2010, Just Add Water announced that "multiple projects" for Oddworld were in progress across "several platforms". In the March 2011 issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly, Lorne Lanning confirmed that a high definition rebuild of the studio's first game, is one of the projects currently being developed by Just Add Water, confirmed to be titled Oddworld: New N' Tasty!.
