If there's one thing I'm a sucker for, it's artsy-lookin' indie puzzle platformers. From Braid and Limbo to Saira and Trine, they're almost always unique, daring, and a ton of fun to play. It looks like we're now due for another one. As Joystiq reports, Swedish studio Might And Delight has announced Pid, a delightfully stylized platformer due out on the PC and consoles next year.
Here's the spiel from the studio's press release:
In the fantastic world of Pid, the player's unique and eccentric journey unfolds as the protagonist is stranded on a remote planet. Players hone their gaming abilities through creative approaches to gravitybending action, intricate puzzle-solving and classic precision platform action, overcoming larger-than-life obstacles and surprisingly original enemy characters. Throughout the course of the adventures in Pid, players will be challenged to outwit a variety of quirky robots and befriend unlikely allies on their quest to face-off against a ruler that has no intention of letting anyone leave the planet.
...and here's the official trailer:
According to a separate report by Rock, Paper, Shotgun, the Might And Delight team includes folks who worked on the Battlefield series, Bionic Commando, Killzone, and Mirror's Edge. Judging by the graphics quality and attention to detail in the trailer, one would certainly get the impression that industry veterans had a hand in this. We'll have to see for ourselves whether the full game is any fun, of course, but I have a good feeling about this one.
