Trine & Trine 2 Editor Release and Free Weekend

We are now officially releasing the Trine Editors on Steam for Windows. We also patched some minor gameplay issues.

Some of you have already gotten a chance to try the editors through the Steam Beta, but now they are out for everyone to try! We have released two separate editors that each come bundled with their respective game; Trine Enchanted Edition and Trine 2. Even though the Editors look quite similar, they do have some differences - so if you have questions, please remember to specify which editor you are using. :)



The Editors may take a while to learn how to use, so they might not be for everyone - but do give them a try and see if you are up for it! The Editors are very diverse tools that allow you to edit existing maps, create whole new maps and share your creations with others through the Steam Workshop. We're really excited to see what you guys can come up with!

Check out the "How to Get Started" section below for useful tips and links on how to help you get going. :) We'll also be happy to answer editor-related questions; you can email those to our Support, post your questions to our blog or in the Steam Community Discussions (links below).

One last note: since the Editors are now officially released, it's recommended that those who were participating in the Beta now opt out of it to ensure they'll get all the latest updates. This is easy to do by right-clicking the games in your Steam Library, choosing Properties and navigating to the BETAS tab. The option to opt out of beta programs should be available in the drop-down menu. Remember to do this for both games.



To celebrate the official release of the editors for Trine Enchanted Edition and Trine 2, both games are free on Steam this weekend 16th-19th of October. The games are freely available for everyone to install and play through their Steam Library for the duration of this weekend - so remember to tell all your friends who've always wanted to try the Trine games, but have not done so yet! Since we are now officially releasing the Trine Editors for Windows, you'll get to try them for free as well. :)

The games are also available for purchase for a juicy sale, 80% off until Monday 20th! Both Trine games support both local and online co-op for up to three people*, so gather your friends and have fun with Trine!
*NOTE: Trine 2: Complete Story is available for Windows, Mac and Linux and has full local and online co-op support. Trine Enchanted Edition is currently only available for Windows (Mac and Linux versions are being developed), so the Mac version of Trine does not support online co-op (but does have a local co-op option!) and the Linux version of Trine is not yet available through Steam.



Frozenbyte Editors: How to Get Started
Please read before trying out the editors!

That should be enough talk for a while, right? We hope you enjoy the free weekend and have fun playing and experimenting with the editors. Don't hesitate to ask any question either here, by email or in the Steam Community (links above). Have a great and Trine-filled weekend! :)

Trine Editor BETA Now on Steam



You read correctly! Many people have asked for our Editors for quite a while and we've always wanted to fulfil that wish. We're getting really close now, as we're now launching both Trine Enchanted Edition and Trine 2 editor BETAs on Steam!

There are two different editors, and a different Beta for both of them. Even though the editors look alike, there are some differences, which is why we have created separate forum discussions for both of them. Please direct your questions and possible issue reports to the relevant forum discussion. You can also contact us by email: support[at]frozenbyte[dot]com. Also pay attention to which discussion you are posting to; the editors have some differences, so make sure to post in the correct discussion or clearly mention the editor version in your email.
Trine Enchanted Edition editor forum discussion
Trine 2 editor forum discussion
More information at our wiki page

Note that the editors are pretty difficult to use if you don't know what you're doing, and there's very little documentation or tooltips - this is actually one of the reasons we've held off releasing the editors to the public before. There still aren't very thorough instructions, but we have opened a wiki page (linked above) and provided some very basic instructions on how to use our editors. It's an open wiki after you've registered, so anyone can edit and post information, and we hope that people will start to share their knowledge with everyone. We'll also be updating the wiki ourselves and tracking that all the instructions are correct and up-to-date.

The Frozenbyte Editor is a very diverse tool. This is what we use to make games like Trine and Trine 2, and it’s based entirely on our own technology. You can edit existing maps, make new maps and do all kinds of things with it. If this sounds like fun, go a head and play and experiment!

Note: Both public editors are still in BETA stage, so you're likely to run into some issues. We appreciate feedback and bug reports (direct those to the linked forum discussions above). Just remember to give as detailed a description of your issue as possible and also include the Beta's version number in your report.




How to Launch the Editors

Launching the Beta requires owning the relevant game (Trine Enchanted Edition or Trine 2) on Steam for Windows.
The below instructions are for the Trine 2 editor. Click here for instructions for the Trine Enchanted Edition editor.

2. Open your Steam Library


3. Right-click Trine 2 and choose Properties


4. Navigate to the BETAS tab


5. Enter the following password to the access code field: FrozenbyteEditorT2
If the code doesn't work, try to restart your Steam client.



6. Make sure you have the editor_beta chosen from the upper "Select the beta you would like to opt into:" menu and then close the window


7. Open up the Properties window for Trine 2 again, and select the "LOCAL FILES" tab, then click "BROWSE LOCAL FILES"


8. Run editor_initialize.exe


9. Install "Microsoft .NET Framework 4" and "Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 Redistributable" packages when prompted

10. Select path for editor installation (for example: "C:\Trine2Editor")

Please see more detailed instructions for the editors at: http://frozenbyte.com/wiki/

Important Information
  • System requirements
  • The BETA save files do not work with the current release version, so you will lose all progress you have achieved during the BETA if you opt out of it before the actual release. Progress you have made before you entered the BETA should not be affected.
  • Beta branch will enable patch 2.11 as well and the patch is not online multiplayer compatible with official released Trine Enchanted Edition v2.10
  • Once the Editor BETA ends, patch 2.11 will be released to Steam users and some DRM free stores
  • Editor is only for Windows and only for Steam users due to Steam Workshop requirement
  • Remember to mention the Beta's version number when submitting bug/issue reports. Also mention which editor you are using (Trine Enchanted Edition or Trine 2) to avoid confusion, as there are some differences between the editors.


More Information:
  • Editor wiki
  • See the forum discussions for Trine Enchanted Edition and Trine 2 editors for known issues, changelogs.
  • Please direct your questions and possible issue reports to the relevant forum discussion.


Thank you all for your continued support! We hope you enjoy the BETA. :)

Your embodies one of the three heroes Pontius, in his knight, the thief Zoya and Amadeus, magicians and wimp before the Lord, a triumvirate of legendary heroes summoned by the mysterious Trine to eradicate a growing evil leaking its dark influence across the world from deep within the Enchanted Forest.
The primary arc of events revolve around assisting a princess in finding and destroying a goblin king. There are hints scattered around levels in the forms of books and notes that expand the story of the princess and the relationship with her sister.
It is not until the last few levels that the game remembers that it was presenting a story to players. The story can best be described as a subtle underlaying to the gameplay that simply offers extra inncentive to complete each level.

What makes Trine 2, but the puzzles with which our hero group is confronted. The puzzles are based on the previous model: Each of the drawing has different skills that we need to combine clever.

- Pontius is a knight of course responsible for properly what to give opponents on the cap.
With his shield but it can also protect the troops or divert fluids before bullets. Add to that his war hammer, he may even throw later to break down fragile walls.

- Amadeus can conjure out of nowhere thanks to his magical gift boxes and planks. He also makes objects float and later even opponents, to use as a shield - completely defenseless the witcher is not so. Especially as monsters die when Amadeus can fall on your head them boulders. And lava pits are just as deadly as our trio of heroes for the nasty goblins. Who uses his surroundings, his opponent can get rid of some very amusing way.

- Zoya is the ranged combat expert of the Force. With her bow she can take distant or entrenched adversary targeted. During the game, we also get to fire explosive arrows and Ice Arrows to freeze the opponent. However, Zoya's greatest strength is her grappling hook, with which they can hold on to wooden objects.

Back to how great it looks! Each new area you pass through along the journey is eye-catching enough to make you pause to take it all in for a moment -- and there are a lot of them over the roughly eight hours of play time. From castles to forests, swamps to caves, tropical islands to fiery and icy wastes, each is distinct and terrifically detailed with artistic flair, and populated by amazing creatures like a giant frog, carnivorous plants, and even a dragon. The lively flute 'n lute music and a kindly British narrator put a finishing touch on this expertly crafted fantasy atmosphere.

To an extent, the same can be said for the sound effects and music, which also exhibit high quality and creativity. Environments have believable ambience with insects chirping and water flowing in the forest, and wind howling and thunder echoing through the craggy reefs of a stormy beach. Weapons make appropriate clashes, clangs, and pings in battle, and objects react to each other with realistic sounds. There’s nothing to complain about here, and the soundtrack has no downside either.
It matches the tone of the game with a full orchestra playing lively, upbeat, fun songs to accompany the gameplay, whether you're solving a puzzle or fighting a group of goblins.

Trine 2: Complete Story is still a brilliantly charming game. The sound package is also excellent, although I'd be lying if I said it was as amazing as the visuals. Simply put, it's an exemplary indie game that has the makings of a blockbuster title.

Score: 83 / 100


Sorry for my bad english. This is my review account, because the low playtime.

Trine 2 is a gorgeous, fun game that I would wholeheartedly recommend, even though I am not someone who normally enjoys puzzle games. The world is vibrant and colorful, with great music and fun, if simple, characters to go along with it. It is a light-hearted, relaxing, fun game with a lot of charm. The puzzles were fun and I had a good laugh with my co-op partner. We trolled each other and had quite a few memorable moments playing the game. I feel like the wizard was the most well-thought out character in the game and that the thief and knight didn't get quite as much attention as the wizard, but this is a very minor nitpick. Playing the thief and the knight wasn't a bore; I mostly played the thief during my playthrough and still had a ton of fun. The puzzles were creative, but not frustrating. I found myself laughing at the silly mistakes we made more often than not.

I never really enjoyed many puzzle games, but Trine 2 was one of the exceptions. Trine 2 is a very fun platformer with 3 characters with unique abilities and uses that are used to complete the level. The experience system is very clever, and made me want to get all the experience I could get! With experience points you can then level up your characters to improve their skill sets. Kept making me log back in for more!

After playing this for a while I love it. Not the best story line in the world but its worth listening too. The graphics are amazingly amazing, and I decided to write this review after blowing up an army of goblins with an explosive arrow. I definitely reccomend it, as well as being one of the few games on steam being perfect for steam big picture. It also has a level editor that I am having fun messing with and I can't wait to make a mod for it. Overall I highly suggest it and the only con I have is it is a little hard to figure out the puzzles sometimes but there is even hints for it. Thanks for reading.

This game is brilliant!
The atmosphere and graphics are truly amazing!
Can be utterly frustrating and equally rewarding when you get pass that seemingly impossible part of the level.

Sometimes this game can be easy, sometimes nearly impossible, especially if you're determined to get the Master Collector achivement.
Not sure about the replayability though, unless you're after the achievements.

Trine 3 must be in development, please!

I really like this game, and that's something I don't often say!
The graphics, the gameplay, everything just fits so perfectly to make this a beautiful game!
Just look out that it doesn't hit you right in your "addiction", if you know what I mean :)

This is the most gorgeous game I have ever played(alongside Trine). Improved a bit from the first one(somehow), you embark on another adventure with our three heroes. It has the same great voiceovers, a better story than the first, improved gameplay(more abilites!), and even more vibrantly whimsical environments than the first!

This game, to put it simply, is amazing. Frozenbyte Studios have really pulled off a work of art with Trine 2. The graphics are stunning (and that's an understatement), the narration is flawless and the story is masterfully crafted - an engaging plotline with a very light-hearted, humourous tone. 15/10 from me.

Trine 2 is a 2-D puzzle platform game. Unlike games like Braid and Vessel, there are multiple ways to solve each puzzle. Overall it is a lot of fun, there is a good mix of thoughtful puzzle solving and fast-twitch action and platform jumping. There are three characters with different abilities. Most puzzles are obviously designed for one character, but in a lot of cases you can solve them with multiple characters. It is fun to figure out the "knight" solution to a "wizard" puzzle. Also, there are additional challenges in addition to progressing through the game: experience pickups and chests. You can win extra achievements by getting all the experience pickups and chests for a level. There is a decent amount of replayability, although I had enough playing it through once. There are an obscene number of achievements available for this game, overkill if you ask me. There is a lot of content here, I have played ~19 hours so far without going back to replay any of the levels to pick up more achievements. The background graphics are very pretty and imaginative, althoug they obscure things sometimes. Overall I can recommend this game as a fun 2-D puzzle platform game, with a low price and tons of content.

Summary: Awesome game to play with friends and a true challenge if you like Achievements.

This is definitely a *casual* game with not so much replayability IMHO, but it is a lot of fun.

If you are an achievement freak like myself, prepare for a challenge. Luckly, these devs here didn't go in the trend of making impossible multiplayer achievements (which is utterly annoying), and they can usually be obtained solo. Some few require multiplayer but they are more often than not just silly: stand on the top of the Knight's shield and so on.

Also, it is SO PRETTY.
