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…

EU Culture Agency to co-fund thirty games including Trine 4 and Spacebase Startopia

Trine 4, Earthlock 2 and the tantalizingly titled Spacebase Startopia are among a list of thirty games being co-funded by the EU Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA). While I'm not familiar with too many of the studios, and the titles for most of these games mean very little, it's good to see Frozenbyte planning on continuing their visually delicious Trine series. Among the…

Trine devs release co-op spell blaster Nine Parchments

It's a good week for aspiring mages. Yesterday I told you about the upcoming Wizard of Legend, and today I'm drawing your pupils to the new sorcery-sim from the Trine devs, Nine Parchments, which actually came out yesterday. You play as a student who must leave wizard school to chase after some stolen spells, and it looks almost as pretty as Trine did - which…

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…

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…

Totally Wizard, Mate: Trine Enchanted Edition Released

Each generation adds its own twist to old fairytales, reflecting the tone and fashions of the era, teasing out undertones as statements. Trine was not an adaptation of an old tale, but played with genre conventions to deliver a modern message: lusty wizards and thieves with grappling hooks are totally wicked cool. But what comes out when that itself is updated? Prettiness. So much prettiness.…

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…
