Trine is a fantasy action game where the player can create and use physics-based objects to beat hazardous puzzles and threatening enemies. Set in a world of great castles and strange machinery, three heroes are bound to a mysterious device called the Trine in a quest to save the kingdom from evil…

The gameplay is based on fully interactive physics - each character's different ability helps the player battle an army of un-dead and defeat hazardous contraptions. The player can at any time freely choose whoever is best suited for the upcoming challenge or puzzle: The Wizard is able to summon objects to help solve puzzles and create new ways to overcome obstacles, the Thief uses her agility and dead-on accuracy to swiftly surprise the monsters, and the Warrior unleashes mayhem and physical destruction wherever he goes.

Co-op multiplayer (on a single computer/console system) details:

  1. The game features a cooperative multiplayer mode (up to 3 players together), featuring an easy join in/out logic to allow the maximum of fun – join in at any time during the game! On PC, multiple input devices (joypads, mouse+keyboard) are supported.
  2. With the Jump’n Run gameplay and 3 different characters and weaponry, the co-operative mode allows totally new tactics that take the action and puzzle solving to a new level!
  3. For example, a player who is playing the Thief character cannot block enemy shots... However, another player who is playing the Knight who has a shield can provide cover from enemy shots while the other takes careful aim and shoots down the enemies.

Trine will be released on PlayStation Network and PC in June 2009, while Atlus is bringing it to Xbox Live Arcade later this year.
