He receives a much unexpected letter from a mysterious paramour which simply states, "I want to see you." He's got it narrowed down to one of the 12 special women he met in his younger days, and it's up to the player to decide how this tale ends...

Players control our hero by making use of his incredibly tight schedule. You've only got so much time to spend with these ladies, so you have to make it count!

102w ago - Might and Delight Co-Founder Jakob Tuchten has detailed PID (Planet in Distress) on PSN today, proclaiming it is more than a pretty face!

Below is the scoop, to quote: We have been developing our first title, PID (coming soon to PSN), for nearly two years now. Like all developers, we had to decide what our focus with the game would be.

The videogame medium is unique in the respect that it borrows from many other media, such as movies, radio, and the written word. The one aspect that separates games from movies or books is their ability to interact. But there are other distinctions worth mentioning, too.

The balance between the different media incorporated within a game differs from project to project. That is the strength of videogames as a medium - but also the challenge for consumers.
