Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince is out today

Trine, the tritagonistic puzzley platformer, had a bit of a rough time in its last outing, as a bold foray into the z dimension was costly enough to cut the game shorter than fans expected. Happily that's not the end of the series, as Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince comes out this very day, returning the bouncy adventure trio to their 2.5D roots.

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]…

NVIDIA Cards To Get PS4-Style Remote Game-Sharing

it's 2015: if you're not streaming your game while you play it, you will be summarily asked to leave society. Don't you dare try to play a game by yourself any more. Privacy is dead: everyone wants an audience, always and forever. Do you want to watch me shower? No? Well, how about watch me ineffectually flail at a pack of Nekkers in The Witcher…

Trine 3 Charges, Swings, Levitates Out Of Early Access

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 hey! I guess I should buy that now." Maybe I…

Feature: Tri-hard With A Vengeance

Premature Evaluation: Trine 3

Each week Marsh Davies swings gamely into the haunted temple of Early Access and brings back any stories he can find and/or tumbles indecorously onto a bed of wooden stakes. This week: third time’s the charm (maybe) for the triply protagonist’d physics-platforming sequel, Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power. Frozenbyte have really tripled-down on the rule of three: three games, three protagonists and, now, three…

Trine 3 Swings Onto Steam Early Access Next Week

Debuting Trine 3 [official site] through Steam Early Access is a curious decision from developers Frozenbyte. I warmly remember the first two as beautiful, polished treats that I played with a face like a small child seeing whatever it is that makes small children incoherent with glee (the faces of authority figures appearing and disappearing behind hands? sweeties? warm milk with a nip of whisky?).…

A New Perspective: Trine 3 – The Artifacts Of Power

When I'm playing the Trine [official site] games I feel like I'm shuffling around inside beautiful fantasy concept art. It's a little known fact that Louis Armstrong's recording of What A Wonderful World was performed after an all-night cooperative Trine binge and the inspiration is clear (the final verse, however, was a joke about The Sims' squalling infants). I've often wondered how it would feel…
