ABOUT SHADWEN

Shadwen is a stealth-action game where the only rule is to remain unseen. Stay hidden – or the ruthless guards will kill you on sight!

Shadwen, an assassin on a quest to kill the king, has a chance encounter with an orphaned girl, Lily. She follows Shadwen on her dangerous journey, but when the ruthless guards get too close, Shadwen must take action right in front of Lily’s eyes.

Will Shadwen risk the girl’s budding trust by resorting to violence, or try and find another way while keeping her real purpose concealed?

To kill or not to kill – that is the question.



FEATURES
  • MOVE FREELY – Sneak and explore around the dark and gritty medieval province and use the environment to your advantage – use your rope to grapple onto rooftops, silently drop down from ceilings, or veil yourself in the shadows.
  • STAY HIDDEN – Pick your assassinations carefully. Avoid being seen, heard or getting caught indirectly. Suspicious sights and noises will alert the guards – use it to your benefit!
  • TIME IS AN ACCOMPLICE – Time stands still when you are not moving Shadwen, allowing you to stop at any point mid-motion. Rewind time to manipulate your past and present actions!
  • USE PHYSICS – Use physics and a freely attachable rope to drag and topple objects. Make deaths look accidental; let gravity do the grave work.
  • CREATE TRAPS AND HAZARDS – Set up traps and hazards to lure guards towards their untimely demise; discover new ways to eliminate or distract your foes by crafting items into deadly surprises, including poison traps, spike devices, decoy toys and more.
  • TWO CHARACTERS – Embrace the darkness with Shadwen and her abilities to protect Lily and create a safe passage for her.

About This Game

Experience a fairytale world of breathtaking sceneries and face a myriad of physics-based puzzles, wonderful contraptions, dangerous foes and enchanting creatures.

Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power is a platforming game of action, puzzles and adventure, and the sequel to the award winning Trine and Trine 2. Reunite with the familiar heroes - Pontius the Knight, Amadeus the Wizard and Zoya the Thief in an all-new adventure, now for the first time in full 3D!

Playable in single-player or in co-up with up to three players, both locally or online.




Amadeus the Wizard, Pontius the Knight, and Zoya the Thief have slowly come to the conclusion that having their lives commandeered by a powerful magical artifact is not a desirable state of existence on a permanent basis.

The heroes try to return their extraordinary gifts to the Artifact called Trine, and so they meddle with powers beyond their understanding: Trine shatters and a heartless ancient sorcerer escapes. With only a broken artifact to guide them, the heroes must try and repair the damage they've caused... or the damage that might yet be done.


A married wizard and father of triplets, Amadeus can summon mystical boxes and move obstacles with his spells. Perhaps he is not the most skilled or fearsome of wizards, but the heroes rely on Amadeus on all things concerning magic and legends. Amadeus has always liked adventures more in theory rather than in practice, preferring the fame and tales of his deeds to the actual doing of said deeds, which often deprive him of naps and holidays with his family.


The brave protector of the realm with a big heart, Pontius is a champion to anyone in need, regardless of their station. Pontius was knighted by the King himself, and he has a red cape to prove it! He is a frontline hero who is always going headlong first into battle with his trusty shield and sword. In addition to passionately fighting on the side of Goodness and Justice, Pontius has an equal love for good food and drink, and dreams of one day settling down on a simple farm, where he could protect his corner of the world, while growing enormous potatoes and pumpkins. And eat pie.


Clever and elusive, Zoya gets in and out of tricky situations all the time. She brings her bow and arrows to a fight, but she also has a grappling hook that can be useful in various thiev... situations. Zoya appreciates all the adventures she has had with with Trine, due to all the trinkets she's been able to collect on the way, but she is becoming anxious to get back on her own. Being on call for Trine is nowhere near as thrilling as her old life as a purveyor of rare and precious items.


Online and Local Co-op

Up to three players can play online and local co-up. Any mix is possible (for example 2 local, 1 online) and you can switch from singleplayer to multiplayer and vice versa. Play with your Steam friends and explore the secrets together!

The Lost Pages

The ultimate test to your skills, the Lost Pages feature the most incredible contraptions, character-driven design, and ridiculous puzzles. Are you skilled enough to unlock all the Lost Pages?

    The visuals of this game are pretty good, but that's about all I can say for the game.
    I have only recently played both Trine and Trine 2 with 2 other friends, and reading reviews beforehand I was not expecting much from Trine 3.
    I should have expected less.

    The 3D mechanic, whilst a good idea, didn't feel like it worked properly, whilst at the same time, making the puzzles seem much easier than on previous games.
    Ignoring the 3D element of the game, the biggest issues I ran into were with playing the story with 2 friends online.
    We had played, and completed, Trine 1 & 2 together with no issues, yet Trine 3 had major syncing problems with cutscenes and some puzzles, and (although my friends did not seem to get this) I would get framerate drops everytime the game autosaved.

    If Trine 3 would have kept to the roots of the Trine series, as a 2D puzzle game, then I could see it as a fun game. However, if you enjoyed the previous Trine games, the 3D mechanics and the sync issues we had leads me to not recommend this game

    I am not sure why people gave this game mixed reviews. This game is awesome and amazingly detailed. I played Trine 1 and Trine 2 to completion and loved them both. Trine 3 is a beautifully done next installment. The 3D aspect is a great addition and did not feel out of place moving from 2d to a 3d format. I didn't feel overwhelmed or frustrated with the controls and it seemed like there were a lot more possibilites puzzle wise. Based on those mixed reviews, I went in to playing Trine 3 with low expectations. I was more than pleasantly surprised and I highy recommend the thrid installment.
    Shame on those mixed reviewers!

    It's a fun game and I enjoyed playing it, but that being said don't buy this game at full price.

    The game was fun but it ended too quickly. I beat the game in 8 hours and the game ends on a cliff hanger making you feel like there should be more.

    There are a lot of reviews complaining about the 3D aspect of the game, but I thought it make the game more fun.

    So hold off on buying this game until it's on sale.

    After loving the first two installments, I am sad to say Trine 3 misses the mark. I tried playing it on two occasions now, both feeling more like a chore then a game.

    The 3D enviorment, while lovely as many have mentioned, makes the game difficult to play. I often had trouble with awkward controls, and not being able to clearly see how my character would move in an enviorment. The puzzles themselves are watered down immensly, answers are too obvious. Lastly, from what I have seen of the story (I will likely never complete this game), leaves me unimpressed. The characters feel flat, and the villian is wholly uninteresting.

    I bought this game when it was on Early Access. It was really buggy then.

    Now I played it 10 months after the release, and it's still very buggy! The characters and objects randomly start wobbling or get stuck (and that makes certain puzzles unsolvable). Zoya's rope wobbles like crazy. The bugs make the game _almost_ unplayable.

    The game is veeeryyy pretty, especially the book levels. And I really liked The first two Trine games. It's a shame that Trine 3 cannot be recommended.

    It's painful to give this game a not recommended, but even if there was a neutral option, I would still go for "not recommended".
    Trine 3 is, as the name implies, the 3rd part of the Trine series, a series of puzzle/platformers by Frozenbyte. The two previous games were 2D platformers (or 2,5D as some would call them, operating on a 2D plane in a 3D environment), while the 3rd one takes a step into the 3rd dimension.

    Graphics and Sound
    Trine 3 is stunningly beautiful, with environments that put many games with far larger budgets to shame. This is in large due to a consistently great art direction, giving the game a bit of a fairytale feel to it, with a lot of bold, saturated colours. You only need to look at the screenshots to see that this is a beautiful game. And the screenshots are representative of what the game actually looks like.
    While not as strong as the graphics, Trine 3 is no slouch in the sound department either. The music fits in well, and helps set the tone, and the narrator does a good job contextualizing things.

    Story & setting
    Trine 3 seems to take its story a bit more seriously this time around, making it feel like a larger part of the game. The story is simple enough, the Trine (a magical thing that linked the heroes to each other in the previous games) has once again gathered the heroes. They are not overly happy about just being whisked away, and when they attempt to break free of the Trine's grasp it breaks, and a big evil reveals itself. The story does the job, but it's nothing outstanding. The setting is, well, a bit underdeveloped, but a game like this does not need a strong setting to work. Still, I would like to see a bit more of the world.

    Gameplay
    Making the jump to the 3rd dimension might not have been the best move for Trine. Much like the previous games, this is a platformer, with a good amount of puzzles to solve along the way. You can freely switch between the three heroes, who all bring their own unique strengths to the table. The warrior has a sword, and is good at pushing back enemies and keeping them where he wants them to be. He can also use his shield to slow down his decent, allowing him to make some long jumps. The wizard can summon crates that can be used to gain some heights, or to slam down on enemies in order to kill them. He can also move around objects at a distance. The thief has a bow and can attack enemies from a distance, and uses rope arrows to swing herself from hooks in the ceiling or to drag objects. In the previous games, the warrior never really felt like he was all that good, and if you leveled up the wizard enough, he could just fly over the level, making him too good. This time around, the characters feel well balanced and I used all of them through the game.
    The problem with moving into the 3rd dimension is that it's sometimes hard to judge exactly where you are in relation to another object, and this is something I found harder than it should be on many occasions in Trine 3 as well. Platforms were sometimes placed so that it looked like they were closer to a wall than they actually were, which made for some frustrating missed jumps. The fixed camera did at least mean that important things were obscured (except for some pits...). The game also seem to have had some issues with collision detection, as I clipped through things on multiple occasions, including some doors (got past at least 1 puzzle through the poor collision detection). This made the game feel a bit sloppily put together. The collision detection does at least mostly work in the player's favour, which prevents it from feeling cheap.

    Final thoughts
    Trine 3 is sadly not a game I can recommend. Not at the asking price at least. It's incredibly short, roughly 3h on your first playthrough, and with an asking price of 23€, those would have to be 3 darn good hours of game time for it to be worth the price. Sadly, apart from the stunning graphics, there's really nothing that is great about this game. Had this game been 10€, I would have had no problems recommending it, at 15€ it would have been questionable, but at 23€, it's simply not worth it. My recommendation would be to simply wait for it being bundled, and get it then.

    ESPRESSO SHOT REVIEW
    Play between three different types of characters on the fly as you have fun doing some action puzzling. Graphics are beautiful, levels are fun, and the puzzles are not overly intense. Expect a short, but gratifying game that is easy to finish in a weekend.

    PROS
    - wow, super amazing 3D graphics with ultra details
    - fun levels that are well thought out
    - varying gameplay between the three characters
    - books with teeth


    CONS
    - the super amazing 3D graphics sort of ruin the old style of gameplay
    - no skills get upgraded
    - lack of replayability, it’s really short

    THE FULL FRENCHED PRESSED CUP REVIEW

    I had the pleasure of playing this game in alpha and finished all the levels a long time ago. When I went back to the game after it was officially released, I found all my save files were removed and I’d have to play the game over from the beginning. I half expected that, so I just backlogged playing the full game at that point. Fast forward to mid 2016 and I finally got around to playing it over again. The majority of the game was already finished when I played it last, so really I only got a few new levels and a few new side quests to complete after my replay. All that said, it was a enjoyable game albeit rather short.

    To be fair, I played Trine 2 and Trine 1 at the same time as when I was starting out on Trine 3. There were pluses and minuses. While I rather enjoyed the level action oriented design on Trine 3, I felt the puzzles themselves took a backseat. Trine 1 honestly had the best puzzles of the bunch, with Trine 2 following behind that. Part of the reason, I feel, is that the game no longer was in 2 planes, but had a 3rd plane of movement that often changed the way Trine 3 dealt with objects. It sort of resembled Prince of Persia more than Trine and I think some puzzle design had to be simplified because of it. Another reason might be because it moved along at a faster pace than the other Trine games, slow puzzling would off-set the momentum built into those levels. You can’t go through a harrowing escape only to get stuck on a puzzle that takes extra time – or maybe I am wrong, I think Resident Evil has a fair amount of that with no issues. In any case, the design of Trine 3 is more action, puzzle platforming with a emphasis on using the 3rd plane of movement. Also, there is no skill leveling as before, making the skills you start with the same as the ones you end with. Does that make it a bad game? No. Does it make it a better game? Also, no. Is it a good game at all? Yes. And that is entirely because it’s still Trine and you still get that thought provoking gameplay where you can attack the situation at hand with three different characters that play very differently.

    And that’s where I address gameplay. You can switch between Amadeus, who is a cube conjuring-levitation expert magician ( mage, wizard, warlock, I am not sure of the proper term used in the game ); Pontius, a very powerful warrior who can float quite well on his shield as well as block/ground pound/ and divert things; and Zoya, a very agile thief who uses ropes to pull and move ringed objects. I used an Xbox controller for gaming and found it very intuitive to use…except for Amadeus. I thought it worked better using a mouse and keyboard for him. Often, I’d be right in front of an object for him to levitate and not be able to get the object to comply with my controller. Over and over again I would fail to grab the object with the blue “X” button highlighted, plus moving the object was substantially more difficult with a controller once I got it. Playing Trine 2 was a LOT easier. I’d use Amadeus the least amount if I could, but I felt the puzzles relied on him and Pontius substantially more than Zoya. Once in a while, I’d use Zoya but only to get an elevator working or pull some gates up. You *need* to use Amadeus and Pontius a great deal more often. So, I went through using my controller for Amadeus and it didn’t hinder me until the end levels where his slow reactions became a huge detriment. I tried mouse and keyboard and while I could maneuver with him better, I was slower with the other characters. So, back to the controller for me and finally finished the game.

    Now, I’ve read some criticisms of the game being too short, bad camera angles, odd controls that are imprecise, etc. Honestly, those are *all* solid complaints and I won’t try to defend them. Yes, the game is rather short. The studio simply did not have the funds to make it a full fledged Trine game. I *did* have some weird camera angles, nothing game breaking, but yes somewhat annoying. The controls are a bit slow when using Amadeus as noted, but perfectly fine for Pontius and Zoya. So, shortcomings aside, it is still a good game on it’s own merit. I love the Trine games, and that alone gets them in the ballpark for me. You’ve got the rope swinging, battle ground pounding, conjuring bits of fun that I enjoyed in Trine 1 and Trine 2. That said, you won’t have the same feeling as you do in Trine 1 and 2. Different games, don’t expect the same gameplay or puzzles. You most likely will not get stuck for a bit as you do in Trine 1 and 2 where you use some extra brain cells to figure out what to do next. For a short, fun action puzzler that looks AMAZING then Trine 3 is a nice game to finish in a weekend. Plus, I think Amadeus has a wonderfully goofy walk that makes my 7 year old laugh when I try to walk like that. 7.5/10.

    Visually, it's a great looking game, with an amazing soundtrack. However, after 12h of gameplay (10h of solo, I completed the game, and 2h of local co-op 3 players, ending in frustration at level 4), I still get confused by the new perspective, most of the time I was jumping towards a platform or towards a monster and missed it. There are no more real puzzles in the game, and very linear levels. No more skill tree as well, no more levitating monsters, conjuring more objects or planks, no more hammer or fire sword, and no more ice/fire/explosive arrows or stealth movement.
    For me, the worst part is the fact that you have to collect pyramids(orbs) in order to progress through the game, and of course, the ending, where the story should have continued.
    This could have been great, Trine 2 has improved so much from the first game, but here, it has gone backwards, and that makes me sad, I expected better from Frozenbyte.

    After a second playthrough of Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power, the game seems even worse. If you play this in co-op, then expect glitches, also you don't get rid of the glitches by doing it solo, it's just a little less of it.
    Same as before, the game has not improved in any way. The upgrades/fun skills are gone, collecting pyramids is required in order to progress through the game, and the ending right after 1/3 of the game.

    The game is good but its lacking when put next to the other games.
    the new 3D format took away from the game and i believe it changed the game too much which i think is the cause of problem for the game.

    when i played the game with my wife we finished the game in 5.9 hours.
    we enjoyed it but we encountered many glitches, bugs and game mechanic issues.

    I fell in love with game not long ago when my wife gifted me, we finished trine and 2 wanting to play the next and became disapointed with the new 3D format when the 2.5D was a staple and worked really well for the game.

    while the game is technically good it just didn't work for this game

    When i first saw this game i saw the mixxed reviews and was completely put off buying it when steam sale hit i decided to take a risk, in all honesty the gameplay took some hits without talents however there was a fantastic new mechanic attached to Zoya (Thief) that captivated me, the 3D aspects of the game were fantastic if only they were to happen more often and the lost chapters had their charm trying to navigate a level designed for 1 specific character.

    Ofcourse there is the standard problem that i beleive everyone has noticed which is the game is both short and ends on a significant cliffhanger. Which is a true shame since the story the built up to such a grand point and by the time Frozen gets back on their feet to produce the rest of it, it'll probly be forgotten.

    Ignoring the 3D element of the game, the biggest issues I ran into were with playing the story with 2 friends online.
    We had played, and completed, Trine 1 & 2 together with no issues, yet Trine 3 had major syncing problems with cutscenes and some puzzles, and (although my friends did not seem to get this) I would get framerate drops everytime the game autosaved.

    If Trine 3 would have kept to the roots of the Trine series, as a 2D puzzle game, then I could see it as a fun game. However, if you enjoyed the previous Trine games, the 3D mechanics and the sync issues we had leads me to not recommend this game

    1. I was very skeptical about the 3D thing. In fact, after playing, I did got bothered in some parts by lack of perspective, but fortunately it was not as bad as I thought it would be.
    2. Each corner of the world is beautiful/b], So many details, I had to stop and slowly watch around just to make justice to that being the product of desing work.
    3. Puzzles are rather easy.
    4. Lacking the ending is such a bad thing for this game. I don't mind games being short, but after just 5 hours don't tell me that I have to wait for the continuation!

    Overall I would say that this game is 75% of a GREAT game... and the other 25% was cut off for some reason. So I would still recommend it if you want a little of colorful fantasy, and it's on sale.

    I understand the criticsism this game is receiving, and i agree with a lot of them. That being said, I had a LOT of fun playing this game. The only parts i didn't like was when the levels with sketch art style kept going on and on. I guess they ran out of money.

    The game was rather short but each level was a lot of fun to play through, the lack of character levelling wasn't a problem though it did diminish the value of the collectables and the lack of any secret items and extra powers was disappointing. Like Trine 1 it's nice to see each character go back to being their own unique thing rather than a jack of all trades (except Amadeus who was probably the weakest character in Trine 2). Speaking of which, Amadeus's lack of extra objects and other powers really made him feel diminished compared to the rest of the cast (Can only make a single crate and float objects around, he also cannot use objects to move people like the in previous games which is a pain). Like the rest of the Trine games it is great solo but really fun if you have a friend to play it with. For me the game performed at the max 100fps on Very High settings and I would suggest grabbing this on sale as the length of the game doesn't justify full price. I am looking forward to a Trine 4.
