While 2D platformers are from dead, the average PC gamer isn't exposed to them all that often. Sure, if you have a portable system or a Wii you see them all the time, but on the PC? Shooters, strategy games and MMOs make up the majority of today's offerings. If you want a good, recently released platformer, your going to have to start digging through the Indie scene. Dig far enough and you'll find some games that are just as much fun as anything a big studio can push out. Is Timetrap's Emberwind one of the games? Well, sort of.
