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.

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.

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"

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. :)

The best thing that I like about this game, is its graphics.

Every single level, character, enemies, background and platforms are well refined. Just look at the trailer and screenshots! It is exactly as pretty as the actual game itself.

It is a puzzle platformer with a little bit of action in it. There are a lot of ways to tackle all the puzzles, and a lot of different approach to advance the levels.

The story itself is quite interesting. The puzzles are interesting and not too overwhelming. The boss fights pose some challenge but not impossible if you get to know how to fight (or just checkpoint-abuse).

The flexible difficulty settings make this game suitable for different type of player. After you defeat one playthru, you can replay all the stages from the start again with your already-unlocked skills to get past the stages in different way, and to collect the experience vials whereby you cannot collect in your first playthru.

Multiplayer is best played with friends that has almost the same progress to avoid spoilers and trolling.

The achievements added quite a bit of challenge and replayability if you're going for 100% completion.

My score: 10/10

What about Trine 2? The first had been great, the 2nd manages to be better in every aspect, the addition of the coop for example is a resource that matches perfectly with the game.

The gameplay remains based on intelligent puzzles, but the coop gave another dynamic to the game, there was the addition of new skills to characters, as well as a greater number of enemies, a factor that was limited in the first. Graphically the game is amazing, the art work is one of the finest I've seen, the sound part is also amazing, soundtrack, effects, voice acting. The plot is simple but effective. The Goblin Menace DLC is a good extension to the game and a very good way to prolong the fun, features beautiful and varied scenarios, although it has some minor glitches, but doesn't affect the gameplay at all.

I highly recommend it, especially in coop!

9/10

For a platform game, the graphics are stunning :D I would absolutely recommend this game! Puzzles aren't painfully difficult and the ability to shift between 3 different characters is a pretty cool feature. Great game for screenshots, and really good for playing if you just wanna relax to a soothing soundtrack and admire the beautiful scenery while swinging, climbing and jumping your way through the levels.

Trine 2 is easily one of the most beautiful games today. It is a really addictive game, with an innovative approach to the platformer genre.

The main point that makes Trine 2 so enjoyable is that it requires thought to play: you have to solve puzzle after puzzle in each screen, and eventually fight some enemies and bosses. There are plenty of bosses.

Another nice thing (for me, at least) about Trine 2 is that the difficult increases gradually, but the curve is not too steep: you get a chance to learn how things work in Trine 2's world, and how your powers work.

Trine 2's characters are very well designed, and they complement each other nicely, leaving nothing to be desired.

All in all, Trine 2 deserves one of those Oscars for games, if there were one.

The only downside I see in Trine 2 is that some of the Steam Achievements are nearly impossible to get, but that doesn't get in the way of the game at all.

I highly recommend Trine 2.

Beautiful graphics, pleasant background music, decent amount of humour and comic mischief, challenging puzzles, item pickups and arcade platformer.

Includes online co-op and most achievements can be unlocked by entire co-op team once any co-op team member qualifies for achievement.

Imagine a gorgeous, detailed graphical story. A story of goblins, dragons, wonderful lands and gorgeous colour. Imagine a story made of heroes undertaking an epic quest to protect the kingdom from a terrible menace and journeying far and wide. Now imagine that story being brought to life, animated, and you being in control of the heroes. That's Trine 2.

The artwork is jaw dropping, not because of technical wizardry or the number of polygons it pushes on screen, this isn't a game that will murder your graphics card, but instead the artistry comes from attention to detail. The watercolour feel of the skies, the glorious use of colours and sweeping vistas to sell the graphical novel element, and the heroes and villains, brought to being in near hand drawn detail. Behind this rests a solid, if somewhat generic feeling soundtrack, but a narrator who really sells the atmosphere, combined with solid voice acting for each of the protagonists (and indeed, the antagonists), it helps immerse you in the game and the story as a whole.

The mechanics of the game are a refinement and improvement over the original Trine, with you switching between heroes on the fly and using their respective strengths to fight and puzzle your way through various environments, however this time it feels much slicker, and much more confident in what it does, there's many points where you'll be scratching your head, only to have the light flick on with a genuine "AH HA!" moment. It's never punishingly difficult, but it's pleasantly challenging. The lack of gore and fantasy nature of the game makes it very family friendly too, older children will get a kick out of the fantasy setting, and adults will no doubt get many of the references. In this it resembles a Pixar film, a comparison I make very affectionately.

Do please check this game out, it deserves your time and attention.
