Might and Delight, the developer of the soon to be released 2D puzzler of Pid, revealed a quick little documentary about the music. Showing off early minimalistic builds of Pid gravitating towards the most striking mechanic, while the musicians talk about Pid and what their goal was to be. The soundtrack is composed by a Swedish band by the name of The Retro Family, whom covered videogame music before (check a sample of their cover of Metalman. Wally Walgren, the drummer had this to say in the doc.
“One thing we wanted to keep was the retro flavor, obviously the name [The Retro Family]. The old school feeling of strong melodies in the music when you play old NES and SNES games, it’s very much about the music in general”

Moody, atmospheric, and down-right jazzy, the Retro Family compliments the style of Pid. The game itself is looking fascinatingly stellar. The new developer of Might and Delight has done 2D right in the past as the now defunct developer “GRIN” with a pedigree of the Bionic Commando remake and the 3D reboot a year later (Rearmed and Wife arm!).
To put it simply, Pid’s gameplay is a 2D adventure with portable gravity platforms to throw at surfaces that are akin to Portal 2’s exertion tunnels. Check out how it truly works and how to solve one problem with a multitude of avenues to explore. Rumored to be out for an August release on digital platforms (Steam, XBLA, PSN, etc.) and getting pumped for more 2D action!
