Trine Enchanted Edition BETA

June 25th, 2014

Have you already participated in the Trine Enchanted Edition BETA? If not, now is your chance! The Enchanted Edition is a free update for all who own Trine on Steam. If you want to participate, you can read more from the official Beta thread pinned at the Steam Trine Community Discussions.

Note that this is still a work in progress, so you can expect to run into some bugs and issues. You can add your contribution by posting bug reports to the official BETA thread on the Steam Community. We ask that all bug reports be posted in the official thread instead of here to make sure we notice them.


WHAT IS TRINE ENCHANTED EDITION?

In short, Trine Enchanted Edition is a port of Trine to the Trine 2 engine, and as a result, many of the “missing” features of the original game, such as online multiplayer, have been added! We have also updated the visual appearance of the game and improved the gameplay – the game should look and feel even better now. At the moment this patch is only for Windows. We will add Mac and Linux versions afterwards, but we can't give an estimate of the time frame for those yet.


HOW TO LAUNCH THE ENCHANTED EDITION?

1. Open your Steam Library
2. Right-click Trine and choose Properties
3. Navigate to the BETAS tab
4. Enter the following password to the access code field: TrineEEBeta2014
If the code does not work, try to restart your Steam client.
5. Make sure you have the beta chosen from the upper “Select the beta you would like to opt into:” menu and then close the window.
6. Make sure the Enchanted Edition is chosen from a drop down menu in the game’s launcher when you start Trine.


Please find the official Beta thread pinned at the Steam Trine Community Discussions for instructions on how to report issues. We are also updating all the known issues into that thread, to try and keep everything in one place. General feedback is always welcome of course.


Thank you all for your continued support and feedback, we hope you enjoy this update!

"Apart from the beautiful graphics, what made the game stand out was just how spot-on everything was--whether it was the controls, the interactions between the three characters, or the puzzle-solving mechanics, it's clear the developers spent a lot of time refining the gameplay." full review

Just Updated

Update features a new level - Path to New Dawn. Level is available upon completion of the game.

About the Game

Trine is a fantasy action game where the player can create and use physics-based objects to beat hazardous puzzles and threatening enemies. Set in a world of great castles and strange machinery, three heroes are bound to a mysterious device called the Trine in a quest to save the kingdom from evil…
The gameplay is based on fully interactive physics - each character's different abilities help the player battle an army of undead and defeat hazardous contraptions. The player can at any time freely choose whoever is best suited for the upcoming challenge or puzzle: The Wizard is able to summon objects to help solve puzzles and create new ways to overcome obstacles, the Thief uses her agility and dead-on accuracy to swiftly surprise the monsters, and the Knight unleashes mayhem and physical destruction wherever he goes.
  • Mix Prince of Persia with Flashback, add true innovation and a great graphics engine… a new legend is born!
  • 3 completely different characters to control at any given time:
    • Wizard is able to cast physically simulated objects and levitate them in the totally interactive game world
    • Knight is a mayhem-bringer like no other, able to destroy objects and smash skeletons to pieces with his weapons, including the mighty Storm Hammer!
    • Thief can hit enemies from a distance with her accurate arrows but she also has a grappling hook to easily swing from one platform to another
  • Solve challenges and puzzles in many different ways – combine the characters' abilities and let your mind come up with creative solutions never seen before
  • Characters gain experience points that can be used to upgrade their abilities
  • Fully interactive game world with life-like physics, including "ragdoll" enemies and more physics objects than you can count!
  • Co-op mode for up to 3 players on the same system
  • Based on the proprietary "Frozenbyte GDE" game engine
  • Superb graphics with next-gen visuals using impressive technical effects such as bloom, reflections and realistic shadows, achieved by using state-of-the-art vertex and pixel shaders
  • 15 carefully designed and challenging levels with a distinctly unique atmosphere and graphics, including the Astral Academy, Crystal Caverns, Dragon Graveyard, Forsaken Dungeons, Fangle Forest and the Ruins of the Perished.
  • Many different items to collect - each affecting the characters' abilities
  • Well-hidden secret chests in every level
  • 3 difficulty levels to choose from
  • Amazing 19-track soundtrack composed by acclaimed Ari Pulkkinen
  • Unlock all the Steam Achievements

Trine is a puzzle platformer with some action thrown in there. You have three characters that you can switch between on the fly, similar to the old Lost Vikings game. You first have the most useful class, the Thief that can use a grappling hook to wooden ledges, a bow, and a flaming bow to light torches. Then you have the wizard that can magically make boxes by clicking or holding the right trigger and draw a box. You can also draw platforms and click and drag specific things to move them or get them out of your way. You can use your boxes and platforms to crush enemies. These first two classes are a lot of fun and have a lot of depth, but then we get to the third class / character, the warrior. He is just your straight up sword swinger, effective melee character.... with a shield that seems pretty useless.

The game is very beautiful, bright and vibrant. It is also very physics based and the physics feel nice. There are nice visuals with diverse settings and instead of cut scenes, the game just uses narrations as you play, which I greatly prefer. Since it is so visually beautiful, it can be a beast on lesser video cards, even at the lowest setting. Your platforms and boxes crush enemies, objects can be thrown into enemies or through destructible walls, the grappling hook lets you swing, and you can wrap hanging spike traps around platforms so they don't fall. I seemed to get the most fun out of unintentional things, such as teeter tauter platforms combine with Ferris wheel like platforms coupled with skeleton warriors jumping and sliding around to fill the room. The platforming dynamic of moving physics based platforming was a lot of fun.

The controls are very simple, and a controller is highly recommended. You have a jump button, a change weapon button, a trigger for drawing boxes or a grappling hook, two shift character buttons, the left stick controls the character, the right stick is like an aim for the bow, to draw platforms and to aim your shield (which is useless when you can easily dodge attacks). You can aim the bow and the longer you aim it, the further the arrow goes. If you don't like switching between characters, you can also play with a friend, but it is sad there is no online co-op.

Each character has their own health and mana bar, but the mana never really seems to run out with enemies constantly dropping potions. If one character dies, they're dead until you reach a checkpoint, even previous checkpoints. If all three characters die, then you simply restart at the last checkpoint. Its a forgiving system, which I'm happy about.

As you progress through the game, you'll level up to get your choice of skill upgrades. You'll also find new tricks and skills.

The enemies seem competent and dangerous enough. The basic enemy is the skeleton that comes in four flavors, standard, shielded, archer and pyro. They will jump over pits, climb, fall and do everything to get to you (except archers that stand and shoot). The enemy AI seems good enough so every situation can be different There are also spiders and bats, but for the most part, that's it.

It is a quick game, about 4 - 6 hours, but still a fun play through (not as addictively fun as Guacamelee). There is some replay value here with collecting stuff from each level and no playthrough feels exactly the same due to the physics and AI. It was a good design choice to have collectables stay collected when you enter each level so you don't waste time getting what you already had.

If you can get it cheaper than $10, go for it. If you're not into puzzles, avoid it, because the combat is pretty shallow.

One of my favorite coop games ever but suffers from the fact that it is local coop only (something that Trine 2 ended up getting). The levels are very well designed overall allowing for a lot of solutions for the puzzles and obstacles in the game using the three hero's different abilities. The graphics are great for its time and the voice acting and music suits the game very well. Overall simply an awesome action puzzle platformer.

A good selection of achievements with some really challenging stuff in there including a no-death run on the last level of the game on very hard. That took me a lot of blood, sweat and tears.

Time to 100%: 13-15 hours

I think we should have more of these games nowadays. Trine simply looks stunning! It successfully captures the atmosphere of a medieval fantasy world.

To make it interesting we have 3 protagonists - a knight, a rogue and a wizard - but we can only use one at a time. And no, the wizard cannot conjure up lightning and summon creatures or throw fireballs at the approaching enemies. Amadeus can only create boxes, planks or triangles - objects with which you can proceed further ahead on each level.

And this is where Trine shines: There are many puzzles and you need to think and find the solution. Occasionally, you can progress fast but on your way you notice you have left some collectibles behind. So, while completing the game does not necessarily take long you are apt to spend hours with the game just to make a 100% progress on each stage.

Frozenbyte did a wonderful job when releasing this gem back in 2009. Instead of picking this one you should look for the complete edition which has its sequel, the DLC for the 2nd episode and the soundtrack included. Here in Hungary the retail version of the same bundle costs around 5 EUR and you can activate all the contents via Steam.

You cannot go wrong with this one and as Trine is regularly discounted you can easily find it for a suitable price. Just make sure to grab it with a friend as the sequel includes co-op mode!
