Pid is a super atmosperic, dreamy and hard game. Really Freakin' hard.
I died 888 times (I swear I'm not making that up).

This is a punisihng game, and we're I using a controller, there would have been numerous holes in the wall by the time I finished Pid.

If it wasn't already clear - I'm not talking about "hard" difficulty.

I picked this up for cheap, but if you like platformers that are a little "different", then always look for games coming out of Scandinavia ;)

The main mechanic is quite uniqe (kind of a tractor beam) and this is what diffeerentiates pid from most other games of the genre.

Definitely worth picking up if you're into unforgiving platformers!

Pid was an excellent surprise for me. The gameplay is great and it's a pleasure to advance in beautiful levels. It isn't an easy game for 5 years old children. You will need some retries in some tricky passages. And if you can't find your way, there are useful walktroughs.

Pid is hard, man! I got this for free, and at first I thought what the hell, some kiddy game. But it's very interesting, relaxing and the bosses are hardasses!! I would have never expected. I haven't finished it yet, but my experience was very nice.
Keep making games like these!
10/10

Pid is an extremely charming 2.5D puzzle platformer, but its unforgiving sections in the game can often make for a frustrating time. You play as Kurt, a boy who falls asleep on a space school bus and needs to get back home. Unfortunately the planet he's on is less than willing to let you go. You must dodge clever robots and learn about the planet, which has a surprising amount of lore.

The gameplay has a lot of satisfying controls like precise jumping, but its core mechanic is a superpower Kurt gets early on. You have the ability to place down up to two beams that can carry you like the Funnels in Portal 2. This opens up a lot of solutions to puzzles considering that you can place them down on almost any surface. These puzzles, as I've said before, can get a little frustratng because most of the game a single hit will kill you. And sometimes the beam placement can get finnicky and you get killed.

To top off the great story and puzzling, there's a co op mode that takes Audrey with you. With two people, each person gets only one beam. Personally I think the beams are a power you shouldn't dumb down to force co operation. Instead, either give one of the partners a different power, or just give both partners two beams.

Summing up Pid, it's really fun if you are normally really precise with your movement. The story is engaging and charming, and if you can part with half your power to enjoy the game with another human, then more power to you!
