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 and Earth 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.

The 'Quack Pack' is back in DuckTales Remastered
DuckTales was always one of those games that I never thought in a million years would get a re-release, much less a remake with hand-drawn art and fully voiced dialog performed by the original cartoon's voice actors. Somehow,...more

Contrast lights the way to fun platforming
Contrast is hands down the most unique game I played at E3. It's rare to find a game that melds adult themes with the whimsical storytelling mechanics of a child's mind. Blended with nteresting puzzle platforming, Contrast is surely going to spark some interest when it arrives.more
