Just the mention D3 Publisher instantly conjures memories of cloying, budget-priced games with B-movie sensibilities all too proud to bear the mantra of "so bad it's good." So after Onechanbara, Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard andEarth Defense Force, what's next for the publisher of cheesy goodness? A charming platformer from a Swedish indie studio comprised of industry vets, if you believe it or not.
Formed back in 2010 by a tight knit group whose résumés include Mirror's Edge and Bionic Commando: Rearmed, Might and Delight have partnered with D3 to bring Pid to XBLA. The gravity defying puzzle-platformer follows a boy stranded on a "dreamlike and dangerous world," looking to escape from an army of robots and a malevolent ruler determined to keep him from finding his way home.
Pid is also planned for release on PlayStation Network and Steam, where it will presumably be self-published.
