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…

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.Developers…

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 know…

FLEEE IN TERROR FROM THE HUGE SEAL (STEAM SALE)

[Earth-shaking slapping sounds can be heard in the distance, like fresh lard being cannon-fired at an ancient war drum]Do you hear that?[A glass of water ripples ominously; a largely decorative Jello mold does the same, but fails to be particularly frightening]Something's coming. Something big.[Dogs whine, horses stomp frantically, one or two people glance up from Western-shootout-caliber staredowns with Facebook on their phones]It's... it's... SEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAL.

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…

Looking Fine: Trine 2 Expansion

Give it a name already, Frozenbyte, so I don't have to refer to it as 'expansion' or 'DLC'. I'm going for the former because it reminds me of the good old days, as do Frozenbyte themselves. Why am I posting about this gain so soon, having already written about the new areas, new plotline and new abilities? Because there's a short video showing some environments…

Trine And Trine Again: Trine 2 DLC

Even before Trine 2 launched, Frozenbyte had plans to work on DLC, saying toward the end of last year that the additional content would be about four hours in length. A few details were revealed to some non-PC folk at GDC, including word of a new story that will take place over six stages, which will have puzzles based around light, water, low gravity and…

GOG, NVIDIA, Frozenbyte, Notch vs SOPA

Expect plenty more of these kinds of updates leading up to next week's web-wide SOPA protests: it's an enormously important issue for the future of the internet and everyone who uses it, so we're giving it our all.Also declaring themselves strongly against the online culture-trashing folly today are Minecraft-makers Mojang, who intend to make a right old song and dance about SOPA next week, NVIDIA,…

Trine 2 Demonstrated, On Macputer Too!

Listen, I know you are a busy person, so I'll just leave this link here. It's the Steam page for Trine 2. There's a demo on there. It works on PC and Mac. It's about as pretty as that pretty girl from your halcyon schooldays, you know, the one carved out of pretty, with nice hair. It really is that pretty. Read more about the…

Don’t Pine For Trine 2

Cos Frozenbyte's proper-lovely tri-person puzzle-platformer finally has a concrete release date, after a few months of to-ing and fro-ing in beta. And it's tomorrow! Oh dear, has this become one of those announcement of an announcement posts? People get cross about those, you know.No, I think it's OK - as it's pretty unusual form to announce the release date of your game two days before…

The Lights Fantastic: Trine 2 Preview

FrozenByte's ethereally-lit follow-up to their Lost Vikings-esque puzzle-platformer has been sitting temptingly on my hard drive for several weeks now, but my Skyrim habit has kept me from until today. I was still feeling a little raw after the freneticism of Serious Sam 3 and an unfortunate chilli-burn incident that temporarily cost me the use of my hands, but Trine 2's main menu alone is…

Skeletons And Spiders: Trine 2 Screenshots

I was operating under the belief that everything was beautiful in Trine 2's world, whether the rushes growing by a crystal clear pool or the giant mushrooms with a candle's light casting a glow from their interior. And then they went and showed me a bloody spider. It's a right horrible one as well, with segmented legs thicker than a bemuscled torso. Thankfully, the other…

Colours Of Magic: Trine 2

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…

Trine 2 Trailer Makes Everything Okay Again

Is it morning for you too? I'm sorry. This incessant plague of mornings that has been affecting the Earth since the Great Schizm is wearing us all down. But this might help. It's the new sort-of-trailer for Trine 2, that's a bit like a week of afternoons off on a tropical island in the moonlight. All those things. It can only help.

It's a top collection of their games - Trine, Shadowgrounds, Shadowgrounds Survivor, Jack Claw, and Splot - and once again its intended to see money reach charities. What, wait were those…

Blooming: Trine 2 Footage Sure Is Shiny

It's been a while since we posted any Trine 2 footage, so I think I shall do so now. The co-op indie delight from last two years ago (I wish I had any perception of the passing of time) had us all cooing around collective monitors. And the sequel looks astonishingly lush, with what appears to be some big improvements from the version shown in…

A Little More Trine 2 Footage

Trine, the comforting bedtime story of a game, is back with its side-scrolling, co-operative physics manipulations. They're calling it Trine 2. I know! But that's okay, because it looks just as lovely as the original, and that original was never quite long enough. This second piece in-game footage shows off some of the co-op game that you can play with, y'know, friends. If they're interested.…

Trine 2 Confirmed For PC

This is a pleasant way to start the week, via Blue: having a sequel for a charming and playable game confirmed for our humming box of tricks. In a reveal thread on the Frozenbyte forums Joel Kinnunen responds "Yes. And before anyone asks, it will come to PC in addition to any other platforms. That's all we can say right now." And I suppose what…
