Colours Of Magic: Trine 2

By Adam Smith on October 12th, 2011 at 9:46 am.

when you get blue and you've lost all your dreams there's nothin' like a campfire and a can of beans

No matter how many words are rattling around in my head like angry wasps, footage of Trine 2 tends to soothe me to the extent that only synonyms for ‘pretty’ exist, along with the bare essentials to string those synonyms into sentences. It’s a bonny game, which makes something as simple as a box falling apart seem like the culmination of a particularly gentle and picturesque fairy tale. The footage below highlights the Unlimited game mode, which allows co-operative play with characters of the same class, allowing three thieves to swing through resplendent forests, or three wizards to calmly rearrange the delicate and comely features of the world.

There’s a summary of Humble Bundle goodness at the end of this video as well. At the time of writing, there are under 15 hours left on the current deal and to receive the Frozenbyte pack, which includes the first Trine, you’ll need to pay above the average, which currently stands below $4.50. A ludicrous and indeed pulchritudinous price.

    Oh, Trine 2.

    Yeah, looks pretty.
    I like that it has online coop now.

    • baby snot says:

      Dying to get this. Would online co-op for the original be impossible to add?

    • Puppetmast0r says:

      Just very hard.

    • Juan Carlo says:

      It wouldn’t be terribly hard to just recreate all the trine 1 levels in the new engine, though.

    • Heliocentric says:

      if a level edit exists maybe someone could just edit the old levels into a custom map.

      edit: what he said.

    • cristhianfs says:

      Now that you mention it, I’d love to se the Magicka guys appear somewhere in Trine, probably burning something unintentionally.

  2. Vexing Vision says:

    Tempted to create a Rock, Paper, Trinity Steam-group for this for the online co-op.

  3. Doesn'tmeananything says:

    Just played through the first game very recently and did I have some magical time. Hope I will be enchanted to the same extent with the sequel.

  4. Flukie says:

    Me and My girlfriend can’t wait for this. The first one is one of those games that doesn’t really have any problems. This looks even better. <3 < 3 <3

    Damn, my prepaid card is almost empty. I’ll feel terrible for paying 10 cents… Guess i’ll buy the next one for at least 10 bucks.
