An Introduction to Trine, Coming Soon to PSN

Olivier Vermeille's Avatar + Posted by Olivier Vermeille on Jul 09, 2009 // Product Manager, Nobilis

Hi everyone,

My name is Olivier; I work for Nobilis, a publishing company which is based in Lyon, France. I’m a Product Manager and I’m here to tell you about an exciting new release for PlayStation Store: Trine.

Trine is a fantasy action and platform game that combines 2D gameplay with 3D graphics. The game is balanced between action and puzzle-solving sequences. Three heroes are bound to a mysterious device called the Trine in a quest to save the kingdom from evil, and the player can at any time freely choose whoever is best suited for the upcoming challenge or puzzle.

Trine, 1

Because physics is at the core of the gameplay, there is not just one solution for each puzzle; in fact you can even find a way the developers have never thought of!

You can control one of the three characters of the game and switch at any time to solve the puzzles in a different manner. Each character has a unique ability, so choose the one you think is best suited for the situation.

The Wizard can create and move objects around to build a bridge or crush his enemies with a box. The Thief uses her bow to attack and her grappling hook to move quickly and avoid dangerous traps. The Warrior is better suited for close combat and tends to hit before he thinks!

So you can play through the 16 levels of the game, switching from character to character, but you can also play with one or two friends in a cooperative mode. Play the whole adventure together and find new solutions by combining your characters’ powers.

Trine, 2


How about asking the Wizard to create a box so the Thief can use it with her grappling hook? Or why don’t you make the Wizard levitate you, while you, The Warrior, destroy your enemies that were too high to reach in the first place?

With 3 players, the range of options widens: ask the Thief to use her bow to fire at your enemies, while the Warrior protects her with his shield and the Wizards creates boxes on top of the skeletons’ heads to crush them!

Possibilities are huge and this trailer will show you what sort of things you can do in Trine.

Coming soon to the PlayStation Store for PS3. For sure…you’ll love it!

Hey is there any chance we may be able to use a mouse & keyboard combo since this is originally a PC game :)

    Hi ssp_619,

    Since the PSN version was specifically developped for the PS3, you will only be able to use the PS3 controllers with Trine.

I’m supposing Wipeout HD Fury isn’t coming out today. Will we at least get this game today? Been anxiously waiting since … I don’t know … the initial release date set back in June.

@46
CORRECTION!
All games submitted for Sony approval after Jan. 01, 2009 will have trophies.

This means games submitted to Sony for approval before Jan. 01, 2009 but not released could release without trophies well into 2009.

You don’t have to be a D about it.

I purchased the PC version and this game is a blast to play with friends. I really enjoyed it and am probably going to pick it up on the ps3 as well. It’ll be nice to play on a big screen tv instead of huddling by a monitor.

The game on PC is only local co-op so I assume that it will be the same here. (All the previews also point to this)

The game is actually quite substantial in length even if it only has “16″ levels. The levels can take quite some time.

$20 is a great deal for this game imo.

Trine looks like an interesting game thus far. Let’s just hope the price justify the mean.

Too bad this game is 20 dollars, if it was 10 dollars cheaper I’d buy it for sure. Oh well!

+ saiyanknight87 on July 9th, 2009 at 12:55 pm said:

y’all better make this co-op local it’s like sony don’t believe in online and co-op being in the same game anymore it’s one or the other!

Release date for Trine and Fat Princess, please.


119

+ OldKai on July 9th, 2009 at 1:28 pm said:

@116: What?

Anyway, from what I understand, this will contain local co-op, but since it’s on PSN and will cost $20, I’m really going to need the demo first, I have the money but that’s not the point.

Le sigh. Apparently Nobilis isn’t one of those awesome publishers that likes to respond to questions and comments… they’re certainly no Capcom, TikiGames, or Q Games…

Maybe one of the nice developer sorts will make an account and comment on their behalf.

    Hello Xoonaka,

    I\’m sorry I couldn\’t answer sooner, but there are a lot of comments both on this blog and on the European blog so I\’m doing it as fast as i can to answer every question :)

    There is also the time difference which makes it all the more difficult !

Wow! Looks amazing! I would just like to know if the co-op is offline or online? Either way im buying it.

    The co-op mode for Trine is offline and it\’s really fun to play with one or two friends helping you :)

@109 “The game is actually quite substantial in length even if it only has “16″ levels. The levels can take quite some time.”

Thanks for pointing this out, the $20 tag (being priced like a full game with a platinum) is probably worth the cash. Day one buy?

Game looks fabulous. The time first I’ve heard of it.

I’d buy it for $20 if it had online co-op. Local only? That’s a stretch.

Is the co-op mode online? Or am I asking a stupid question? These type of games are my most favorites. Phantasy, platform, puzzle in 1 game is total win! Its my most anticipated PSN game thusfar so can’t wait when it releases. *Hopes for July the 31st, my birthday xD*

    The co-op mode will be offline and it\’s not a stupid question, I guess I wasn\’t clear enough in the blog entry since many people asked the same question :)

    You should be able to download Trine before your birthday ;)

Gamespot.com has this game listed to come out today (july 10th). I was getting my hopes up for it. I thought it sounded funny being that they update the store on thursdays and rarely deviate from that. It better be real soon! good thing i was able to download the demo on my lap top.


147

+ Xoonaka on July 10th, 2009 at 1:17 pm said:

@ LpSquall

I heard they’re considering doing an XBLA port, but that they might be requiring them to have online multiplayer. It’s feasible if they go through the trouble of making that, they might consider patching the PC and PS3 versions with it as well to drum up more sales.
