Puzzles and platforms hark back to the glory days of gaming, when Mario and Sonic were the order of the day. Or was that just nostalgia? Regardless, they were big, mean worlds bursting with pitfalls, traps, and conundrums, but these realms nevertheless had wonder and personality in spades. They were strangely impossible play spaces, so very different from the grim mimicry of reality that’s so often the case today. Pid is a puzzle-platformer in this same vein: an innocent frolic through the surreal; a light, endearing tale in which a little boy travels through a peculiar land in order to find his way home; a story in which the plucky young protagonist must triumph over a world hell-bent on stopping him.
