Now We Can Have More Than One Character On Screen At a Time.
Journey with me back to a land of physics based puzzles and platforming. Trine was an enjoyable mix of action, puzzle-solving, and platforming. The dynamic of switching between your three playable characters mid-level to use each one’s strength at the right time was a lot of fun. This time around you and a friend, or two, can play through this universe together.
From the looks of the video the undead are no longer the big threat in the world of Trine. Fleshy monsters now populate the countryside, and they seem to have better tactics in battle. The co-op is going to be online and local, which opens more options for playing with your friends. I personally can’t wait to get a friend or two together so we can experience this game in its full glory. Timing will be very important I’m sure, and frankly the game just looks amazing when played with impeccable timing.
Spring 2011 is a broad and far off goal, but I will be keeping my eye on this one. The original Trine provided me with hours of unique gameplay and the atmosphere the game creates is one I won’t soon forget. Hopefully Trine 2 will pick up where the first one left off but one thing is for sure, it has some big shoes to fill.
