Arty platformer Pid announced for PC, consoles

Scandinavian jumper channels Limbo, Portal 2.

Another stylish indie 2D platformer to add to your list: Pid, the debut effort from Swedish studio Might and Delight.

Due for digital release some time in 2012 "for several platforms, including gaming consoles and PC", it's a 2D sidescroller that sees you stranded on a mysterious planet. According to the announcement, your journey home will feature "gravity-bending action, intricate puzzle-solving and classic precision platform action."

The game offers a co-op mode should you wish to bring a friend along for the ride.

Take a look at the rather lovely announcement trailer below for more.

Might and Delight was formed back in 2010 from the ashes of Stockholm-based Bionic Commando Rearmed developer Grin.
