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,…

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…

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.

Humble Frozenbyte Bundle Appears Today

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…

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…

Trine: “Path to New Dawn” And Cheapness

The 1.07 patch for clever co-op platformer Trine includes a new free level called Path to New Dawn, which is a reward for veterans, as Frozenbyte explain: "Path to New Dawn is a unique level with new visuals and challenging gameplay, especially on Very Hard difficulty setting. It also features 10 special items for the player to collect. The level is unlocked and available in…

Wot I Think: Trine

Indie Finnish developers Frozenbyte last caught our attention with their top-down shooter, Shadowgrounds, which was a little Aliens-y. Their latest game could scarcely be further way from that gloom and gunfire: Trine (as in "fine") is a side-scrolling, puzzle-led, fairy-tale platformer, built in the Swiss-Army-character-swap tradition of Lost Vikings. But is it any good? And what's with the pricing? Here's Wot I Think.

Magic Tricks: Trine Demo

Crikey, as if you didn't have enough to play this weekend already! Frozenbyte have released the first part of their forthcoming physics platform puzzler as a demo. It's 460mb, and you can get it here. The full game is apparently out on July 3rd, and you can, should you be so inclined, compare your impressions of the demo with my own thoughts on the full…

Quick Q&A: FrozenByte’s Lauri Hyvärinen

In typically backward fashion, I managed to arrange a Q&A with FrozenByte's Lauri Hyvärinen before I'd actually played their gorgeous platform game, Trine. Yeah, I'm a pro like that. Anyway, I've had a blast with our preview version of the game, as described here, and Hyvärinen makes things a bit clearer in his replies to my questions. He talks about the nature of non-essential co-op…

Cryptic Triptych: Hands On With Trine

Finnish developers Frozenbyte recently sent us an unfinished version of their forthcoming action adventure puzzler, Trine (rhymes with "fine"). I've been playing through the opening levels of this intriguing game - which is something like Lost Vikings in a lavish fantasy world, colliding with modern physics - and find myself entertained. Needless to say, written impressions follow.
