Pid's Hard Mode Detailed

By Michelle Balsan, 4 years ago
In the nine months that have passed since Might and Delight revealed their platformer Pid would be coming to XBLA, we've come to learn quite a lot about the title. From its co-op gameplay, to its music, straight to assorted trailers and screens, we have a good handle at this point on what the title will offer.

Today, the developer threw a wrench into things by introducing a hard mode for the game. Now, instead of taking the time to admire the aesthetics of each level, you'll be tasked with memorizing the timing to get through these new tests of your patience and skill. To give you a taste of what to expect, take a look at the newly released trailer and screens.

Pid is expected to be released at some time later this year.

It wouldn't be a platformer without spikes!
If they came to hear me beg, they will be disappointed.

About the only thing I remember from middle school sex-ed classes is one film's introduction to the topic of pelvic inflammatory disease.
Big booming Mortal Kombat announcer-like voice out of nowhere goes, "P! I! D!"

Can't look at this game without sniggering.

Each new piece of info on this game makes me want it more. In all honesty though, the spikes don't appear to be that hard to maneuver around. I mean, after besting Super Meat Boy, I think I'm prepared.
