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?

Soundtrack

Award-winning composer Ari Pulkkinen returns for an amazing fantasy soundtrack!

Fantastic Fantasy

Adventure through breathtakingly beautiful landscapes in an enchanting fairytale world, and for the first time ever explore the Trine world in a full 3D setting, allowing you to go check out all the nooks and crannies that have been so alluring in the past.

Full Language Support for English, French, German, Spanish, Russian, Japanese, and Brazilian-Portuguese

The game features full language support for English, French, German, Spanish, Russian, Japanese, and Brazilian-Portuguese (voice + subtitles on/off), and an additional number of languages for subtitles.

    BEATEN! 5 hours

    Trine 3 is certainly different from other Trine games in the series:
    - No leveling up at all
    - 3D environments (situational)

    While I can see SOME conplaints being valid, generally, the game is well done:

    Pros:
    -3D spaces make for some very different levels
    -It's Trine. So if you liked it before, it is more or less the same idea.
    -Steam workshop (for levels!)
    -Art design - especially the "drawn" levels. Just beautiful.

    Cons:
    -It is sometimes hard to gague depth when travesing levels, which can result in cheap deaths.
    -Some levels *cough the solider's (pontius) survival challenges are WAY harder than the rest of the game.
    -It is pretty short.

    If you've played Trine and Trine2, this is an awesome next chapter in an amazingly creative and innovative series. Purchased when it was on sale for $5, will probably purchase a few more copies for friends, would have gladly paid more. Very fresh, yet so intuitive you'll pick it up much quicker than expected. There are a few bugs, there are a few moments when the 3D aspect has you questioning how you missed that ledge or platform, but you can always try again, and there are plenty of save points. If you're on the fence because of the mixed reviews, ignore them, its worth every penny.

    A beautiful game. Really appreciate the great effort by the developers to try out something new and take risks.

    I really liked the controls although a bit difficult at times, but the content was bit short.

    Hope to see more levels in the future updates (if any).

    This is pretty bad compared to the first 2 in the series, I would stay clear on the 3rd installment.

    I think Trine 3 is absolutely brilliant along with all their other games. Am I disappointed there's no levelling? Absolutely. I'm also disappointed it's short and I'm disappointed the story's incomplete. But that's not enough to give the game a negative review in my opinion. I think it's absolutely worth playing and I think they did an amazing job with it. I hope they continue the series. I wish they'd just add a levelling system and move on. I think that alone would recoup a lot of the negativity about the game!

    If ever a game needed a "sort of" recommendation option, this is it.
    What's here is good but it's no secret that the game is not finished.

    Much like the previous games, Trine 3 is a physics based platformer which looks great and has bags of character. The big difference between this and it's predecessors is 3D movement which (suprisingly!) works quite well for the most part. You will have the odd death due to the extra dimension and exploration can sometimes lead you out of bounds, but the game is forgiving with its checkpoints and it's unlikely you'll have to play whole sections again due to this.

    It is not a particularly hard game - getting all the achievements is ridiculously easy - but the journey is enjoyable and is sprinkled with some clever ideas and puzzles.

    On balance I recommend Trine 3 because what's there is fun, just be prepared to be left wanting more because in reality this is only 1/3 of what the game should have been. Probably best to get it when it's on sale.

    I bought this game because I believed it had real co-op (over the internet) so I could play with my cousin.
    I'm really dissapointed... this day and age they did not include online multiplayer in this game despite Trine 2 having online MP.
    You have completely and utterly dissapointed us both!
    Especially with the game heavily resembling one of our all time favourite games; Gauntlet Legends.
    Well, you've just lost a sale because my cousin was going to buy it so we can play together.
    I on the other hand will be looking into getting a refund.

    Not at all happy... We were really looking forward to playing this together.

    We don't game on consoles for a reason, we want to play ONLINE together, not huddled around one screen.

    Outstanding game, the series has evolved with every episode and the graphics are beautiful. A wonderful addition is that you can go back to each level after completion and collect items without having to go through the whole level again, you can even choose the checkpoint that you wish to start from and then exit that level with your progress saved - I've never seen this in a game before and it just goes to show how much thought has gone into it. My only complaint is that it's a bit short but it's well worth the money nonetheless. Can't wait for the next installment.
