    OK... It was covered on EG at some point last year but I think only as a news article, which led me to download the demo directly from the dev but I stupidly didn't bookmark their site, am now on a new machine and have lost the demo.

    It ran along the lines of you're an alien who crash lands on a planet after being shot down in space and you have to escape. Simples. The intro played like a late 80's/early 90's game, similar style and graphics. I also seem to remember there being a game mechanic regarding your weapon disabling certain force fields but I might be dreaming...

    Can anyone shed any light, please??

    Nope but I can see where you're coming from...

    The game I've forgotten was a platformer, think the graphics were pixel based... Think you had to collect either bits of your ship or various power sources... Sorry, extremely vague. I just suddenly felt like giving it another go... ah well...

    Oh, and it's definitely not "p i d", either.

    Only thing I can think of that sounds sort of similar is here.

    However, I doubt it is that as I think the graphics might not be 80s/90s enough, and there isn't a link to download the demo from the developers site. In fact I'm almost certain it isn't this, but I thought I'd post anyway just in case your memory is fuzzier than you originally thought ;)

    @DFawkes Pretty sure you're right and he must mean Capsized. There's a demo on Steam.
