Might and Delight's newest side-scrolling, 3D, adventure-platforming puzzle game, Pid is a mighty delight to behold, indeed. The game may not have next-gen graphics or visual effects, but the gameplay is leagues beyond what we're currently getting from most other AAA titles.
If you've grown tired of shooting the same turban-wearing insurgents, blasting down the same gruffly-voiced alien invaders, beating the crap out of the same mutant hordes, maybe it's time you hung up the lone-hero boots and embraced a game that challenges you like few others will. Check it out in the trailer below.
Giant Bomb nabbed the original world exclusive debut for the game, but unfortunately it didn't contain turban-wearing, gruffly voiced mutant aliens and it wasn't Call of Duty so no one really cared at the time. Hopefully now that the gameplay trailer has become available for the gaming community at large we can see this game land on the front pages a bit more often.
The concept looks absolutely fascinating, mixing in elements we've seen from games like Vessel and DustForce with story-driven gameplay and backstory gravitas like Limbo and Insanely Twisted Planet, where moving forward helps you understand a little bit of where you came from.
For the most part I'm duly pleased with the lenity of the visual aesthetic and the clement-style atmosphere, which helps set the game apart from most other titles...save for maybe Double Fine's The Cave and a little bit of Katamari Damacy. Even still, we get these games far and few between and Might and Delight broaching the gameplay barriers for something new, innovative and entirely unique is definitely a welcomed delight.
Pid is set for release later this year for digital platforms. You can learn more about the game by paying a kind visit to the Official Website.
