Jumpy beam adventure: Pid
Well doesn’t this just look like a game right up my ever-expanding alley? Pid is a 2-D “platform adventure game” that looks to take the idea of the gravity beam from Portal 2 and translate it to 2-D, all the while marrying it with an old school adventure game aesthetic and some cool retro-esque graphics. Comical looking robot men, some tricky platforming, beautiful sights, and maybe some adventure game logic: really, what’s not to like?
Pid is being made by some of the people behind the fantastic Bionic Commando: Rearmed, a quality game in a slightly questionable series, and it lends additional legitimacy to a game that could get really far on its looks alone. Seriously, the game looks gorgeous.
Oh, and it’s co-op. There’s another feather in its cap. A lovely cap I’d love to wear. Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait until 2012 to put it on, but that’s not so far from now, is it? Until then, go gaze longingly at screenshots. I know that’s what I’m doing right now.
