We are less than an hour away from the kick off of E3 2012. Whilst we wait impatiently with our hearts racing, Might & Delight have released a whole ton of good stuff for their upcoming XBLA platformer, Pid
. It's been quite some time since the announcement
for the game, and since then, we've only seen one trailer
for the game which showcased the evolution of how the title is the product it is now.
, players will be taking on the role of a young, clever boy called Kurt. Lost in a strange world full of unique characters who have already been stranded in this peculiar world for a long time, Kurt must find his way out of here. This will not be simple. The complex puzzles and the need for perfect timing and precise judgement will make the mission to escape a very difficult one. Kurt will have the aid of his gravity defying lightbeams which can aid him in reaching certain platforms and parts of a stage that a simple jump would not be able to. If you'd rather not venture through this wierd world alone, then the option to play alongside a friend in co-op will be available too. Kurt can team up with a "stranded youngin’ named Audrey".
Might & Delight have released some new artwork of some of the characters and stages from the upcoming title.KurtKenGourmandBasementStages
