Origin Access - the PC service granting players loads of EA games, discounts, and early access to upcoming title for £3.99 a month - has added the Mass Effect Trilogy to its Vault.
Trine: Enchanted Edition, the fancy new remake of last gen's physics-based co-op puzzle platformer, is coming to PS4 on 17th December in Europe, developer Frozenbyte has announced.
Glorious co-op puzzle platforming series Trine has sold upwards of 7 million copies between its two games covering eight platforms, developer Frozenbyte has announced.
Magical platformer Trine is now available to try in its Enchanted Edition, which reworks the game into the beautiful Trine 2 engine.
The original version of the game will remain available, but Trine's Enchanted Edition will also offer Trine 2's online multiplayer.
The new version is still in beta, but anyone who owns the original game can play it for free via Steam.
Trine 2 developer Forzenbyte has announced the Goblin Menace DLC for its puzzle/platformer from last year.
What began as Good Old Games, GOG.com, has relaunched to sell new PC games alongside old.
Therefore, the Good Old Games meaning will fade away. The company will be known instead by the acronym-turned-company-title GOG.com. "It doesn't matter what G, O and G stand for," explained a post on GOG.com. "Gee Oh Gee dot com stands for high-quality, DRM-free gaming, each week with bigger and newer games."
Trine and The Whispered World are examples of 'new' games available right now. Legend of Grimrock is out 11th April. Spacechem, Machinarium and Darwinia are "coming soon". Apparently, more than 20 indie and new games have been signed for release in "the next few months".
The number of trophies included in PlayStation Network games will remain unchanged despite Microsoft's decision to increase the achievement count in Xbox Live Arcade titles, Sony has confirmed.
The long-awaited arrival of platformer Trine headlines the Thursday PSN update this week, followed admirably by Bomberman Ultra and Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 - Commander's Challenge.
Frozenbyte will finally release the PS3 version of Trine this Thursday on the PlayStation Store.
Sony has pre-announced the things it expects to put on the PlayStation Store today, but Trine sadly won't be among them.
Frozenbyte has told Eurogamer that Trine as a project is "a big mess", and that the disparity between prices and the platforms the game is released for are issues the studio will be better prepared to handle next time around.
When it comes to promising new indie games, a dash of originality is usually what gets people's attention - some memorable feature or twist that helps the game break away from the herd - but in the case of Trine, from Finnish developer Frozenbyte, it's actually the warm feeling of familiarity. Certainly, anyone who's been gaming since the early nineties will find it delivers a tasty blend of beloved old flavours, served up in a tangy sauce of modern physics.
The danger when discussing such a classically constructed game, of course, is that it's tempting to rely on a soundbitey tick-list of influences to set the scene, so let's get that out of the way. The obvious reference points are the side-scrolling exploration of the original Prince of Persia and the three-way ability-based puzzling of Blizzard's cult 1992 gem, The Lost Vikings. Mash those two together, add a splash of LittleBigPlanet's physics-heavy gameplay, and you've got Trine.
You're in control of three characters. The first we meet is Zoya, a thief. You guide her through a sacred temple, in a neat opening section that doubles as a simple tutorial, until she stumbles across the Trine - a magical artefact of unknown power. Next we meet Amadeus, a wizard, who investigates the disturbance in the temple and also finds himself bound to the Trine. Finally, there's Pontius, a gruff knight whose bullish determination to defend the realm makes him the third hapless soul to be caught up in the adventure about to unfold.
Frozenbyte has popped out a PC demo for promising platform game Trine.
Trine is where Lost Vikings and Golden Axe merge and come up against the dreaded scourge of gaming: seesaws. Whether they're hampering the progress of Gordon Freeman's ascent to a platform that's slightly too high, or causing Sackboy to leap futilely at their teetering ends, they've been causing a ruckus in our chosen field of entertainment for several years now. One day their reign of tyranny will be overthrown by another piece of playground apparatus (my bet's on those miniature horses on chunky metal springs) but until then it's up to a svelte thief, a lady-chasing wizard and an angry knight to wrestle with their noxious taint.
Finnish developer Frozenbyte has said that its alluring PSN and PC game Trine will arrive here in June.
Shadowgrounds developer Frozenbyte and French publisher Nobilis have revealed an intriguing PSN and PC game called Trine.
