The third Trine game has been officially released. Dubbed Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power, the new game in the gorgeous-looking puzzle platformer series now features 3D gameplay, which should make for some extra-puzzling moments. Here's the release trailer:
For those unfamiliar with previous games, the Trine series is a puzzle platformer where the player can switch at will between three heroes in order to solve intricate puzzles—reminescent of The Lost Vikings, if you're that old. In this third Trine installment, Pontius the Knight, Amadeus the Wizard and Zoya the Thief grow weary of having the Trine artifact control their lives, so they try to give their powers back to it—a move that goes terribly wrong. An ancient sorcerer is released instead, and the heroes must fix the mess they've made and save the world once more.
Like the previous games in the series, Trine 3 features local and online co-op gameplay, stunningly beautiful graphics, and likely the same wacky sense of humor. This time around though, the gameplay is set in full 3D instead of side-scrolling 2D. Trine 3 is available on Steam, Humble Store, and GOG for 10% off at $19.79.
