It’s A Kind Of Magic(ka): Trine Devs’ Nine Parchments

13:48, 16 Aug 2016

As someone who causes a lot of problems then somehow expects thanks for clearing them up, I sympathise with wizards. You’d dick about with fireballs and skellingtons if you could, wouldn’t you? You’d have to decency to iceblast your now-flaming curtains, wouldn’t you? Arrowhead’s Magicka is my go-to game for dickhead wizard antics but I […]

Trine Devs Release Stealth Game Shadwen

Trine Devs Release Stealth Game Shadwen

16:53, 17 May 2016

My favourite part of the Trine games is zipping around as the Thief with her grappling hook, so I was excited to see a hook-swinging stealth game from creators Frozenbyte. That’s Shadwen [official site], which launched today. Shadwen’s a medieval-y third-person stealth game about an assassin who befriends a young girl, larking about with sneaking […]

Shadwen [official site] is an upcoming stealth platformer from Trine creators Frozenbyte, which also has a focus on physics-based frolics.

They’ve got some of the physics-driven open-ended aspects of Trine, by which I mean you can knock boxes about, with lashings of stealth and crafting on top. Oh, and it’s a proper video game – it […]

Have You Played… Trine?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. If Trine [official site] were simply about a thief fighting through a magical adventure with her bow and grappling hook, I’d really dig it. I’d also be well up for a game about […]

Trine 3 Charges, Swings, Levitates Out Of Early Access

21:00, 20 Aug 2015

Early Access does mute the excitement of a new release for me. After the delights of Trine and its sequel, I should be bouncing off the wall with glee at the release of Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power [official site]. Instead, after four months on Steam Early Access, my response is a muttered “Oh […]
