‘Pid’ Devs Quell The Masses With ‘Easy Mode’ Patch

By Jospeh Leray

Swedish design team Might & Delight, veterans of GRIN’s Bionic Commando: Rearmed, announced today they will be patching an easy mode into Pid.

Pid is a whimsical, melancholy sci-fi puzzle-platformer, and Might & Delight’s first game. It’s about an young boy named Kurt who becomes stranded on a strange planet and must find his way home. It’s got a killer art design and soundtrack, but reviewers found the game unnecessarily difficult. Joystiq called the game “frustrating,” and Paste Magazine found the controls sluggish and the platforming sections “rote” and “tired.”

In a prepared statement, Might & Delight says it used feedback from critics and fans to create the new mode, which features shorter boss fights, fewer enemies, and redesigned levels. The patch — which is already available on PC and Mac and should hit consoles soon — also balances aspects of the game’s normal and hard modes.
