Trine 3 Charges, Swings, Levitates Out Of Early Access

Fairytale fun

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 have become the sort of hype-driven monster I swore I'd never be.

Either way, hey! Trine 3 is now properly out to continue the adventures of a thief, wizard and knight for your puzzle-platforming pleasure.

Trine 3 takes the series out of its 2D perspective with a little depth. When Marsh played the Early Access slice, he wasn't entirely sold on what it added. Me, I'd be perfectly happy with more conjuring, grappling hook swinging, and monster-slaying, but in retrospect perhaps Trine 2 was a touch formulaic. The game's had another four months of work on it since then, too, so maybe the 3D side has improved.

Trine is out for Windows, Mac, and Linux from Steam, GOG, and the Humble Store (who offered both a Steam key and a DRM-free version). It'll cost £15.99/21,99€/$21.99 normally, but has a 10% launch discount for the first week making it £14.39.
