Players control three different characters, each with their own devastating powers to create, destroy and interact with the world and its enemies in order to save the kingdom from evil.
At the heart of the game lie the main characters; the Wizard, the Warrior and the Thief. Each one is bound to a mysterious device called the ‘Trine’ and only one can be outside of it at the same time. Players can alternate between all of the game’s heroes, collecting ‘experience shards’ and new weapons to upgrade existing armoury and add new abilities or special moves to each character’s repertoire.
As the game progresses there are numerous hazardous puzzles full of physics-based action. For example, players can employ the magical skills of the Wizard to turn a wooden door into a magic carpet, defying gravity and levitating above vast ravines. The Thief’s grappling hook and rope can also be utilised to swing across large gaps and navigate between the tree tops of the dark, dense forest.
Trine features fluid gameplay, set in a captivating, fantasy world boasting impressive castles, striking statues and bizarre looking items of machinery. There are 16 different levels to complete and if a character is killed during the quest then the others can be used until a location is reached where dead characters can be revived.
Trine will be released on PlayStation Network and PC in June 2009.
