Trine Only $5.00 on Steam This Week


Now here’s a Steam deal you’ll want to take advantage of, folks. Frozenbyte’s outstanding physics-based platformer Trine is on sale at a 75% discount from April 19th through April 26th. That’s only $5 for one of the best downloadable games you’re ever going to play — and a game that was often criticized for being too pricey upon release.

This sale coincides with the releases of Patch version 1.07 and a free DLC level titled Path to New Dawn, which becomes unlocked in the level select menu upon game completion and features 10 special items to collect.

Stop twiddling your thumbs already and go get this game!

“We are extremely happy to release this free level. It is our way of saying thanks to our fans and giving back to everyone who has bought Trine,” says Lauri Hyvärinen, Frozenbyte CEO, and continues: “As a company, we’ve had an interesting journey getting this far. I’m sure the path ahead is also full of dangers and traps but we’ll do our best to avoid them and continue to bring great experiences to gamers. We’ve been delighted that so many players have enjoyed Trine so far, and I hope this free level adds a little bit to that enjoyment!”

“This truly is a tough platformer level: collecting all 10 special items on the harder difficulty settings will be a challenge even for Trine veterans,” says gameplay designer Kim Juntunen and continues: “If you would rather just enjoy the level at your own pace, the Easy and Medium difficulty settings are best suited for that. If you’re going for the challenge, then I recommend taking advantage of the characters’ unique abilities and the many items found in the earlier levels, such as the Resurrection Gem. It’s tough but it’s definitely worth it – good luck!”
