Trine 4 swinging back into 2.5D

The magical puzzle-platforming adventures of a thief, a knight, and a wizard will continue this autumn in Trine 4, developers Frozenbyte announced today. Following a terse announcement for the game last year, now they've opened up with screenshots and a trailer and details and all that marketing jazz. Once again, our trio will be leaping around levels, solving physics-driven puzzles and smashing baddies in different…

Trine 3 Devs On Short Length & Cliffhanger Complaints: “There Is Nothing Left On The Table”

I often lament that game companies don't tend to admit when they've ballsed something up - paralysed by fear that it'll affect marketshare or boardmember confidence. Today, we get to see what it looks like when a successful but small developer puts their hands up, admits there's a problem and explains why. Does it feel any better? Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power [official site]…

Conjure Up New Levels With Trine & Trine 2’s Editor

If someone could kindly make a Trine 2 level that's a big huge grappling hook playground with daring leaps and grand fairytale vistas, I'd be much obliged. Developers Frozenbyte have released public beta versions of the level editors for both its magical puzzle-platformers, you see, but I'm oh so horribly busy this week. They let folks create new levels, edit existing ones, and put together…

Magical: Trine Conjures Up Online Co-op In Engine Switch

I remember Trine as being awfully pretty but no, apparently it wasn't pretty enough for developers Frozenbyte (and, having now returned to the game, it seems my memory's not quite what it was). They're porting Trine over to the Trine 2 engine, giving the puzzle-platformer a fairytale makeover and its sequel's online co-op. While Frozenbyte may disappearing off on their summer hols soon and don't…

Humble Indie Bundle 9 Is Go(od)

It's not Android games, nor soundtracks, nor books about kettles. The new Humble Bundle is the original, the Humble Indie Bundle 9. And for a ninth time in a row, it's a corker. With names like Mark Of The Ninja, FTL: Faster Than Light, and FEZ, you can see the dollar signs spinning already.

The Colour Of Money: Trine 2 DLC And Sale

I remember a review of Zhang Yimou's Hero which claimed that almost any frame from the film would be worthy of hanging in a gallery. Hyperbolic perhaps but it was a motion picture not afraid to include all of the the colours, frequently in astonishing arrangements. Similarly rich in palette, Trine 2 brings a beauty all its own to the fields and frozen wastes that…

The Blood And The Beautiful – Trine 2: Goblin Menace

Truth be told, I'm not entirely sure how goblins - lumpy, stumpy little monstrosities - can exist in Trine 2's world. I mean, I have to imagine it's like a snowman going for a stroll on the sun; we're talking about two entirely opposing forces, and one has to give. So naturally, you'd assume ugly ol' goblins would immediately explode into flame volcanoes when exposed…
