NEW TRINE TRAILER INTRODUCES THE THREE ENIGMATIC HEROES
Trine, a unique and absorbing fantasy action game that challenges players to battle with the forces of space, energy and motion in a magical kingdom, will be released on PC in July 2009 by Nobilis and Ascaron Entertainment.
A second trailer has now been released showcasing the game’s co-operative mode and its three protagonists; the Wizard, the Warrior and the Thief. Players can use each character’s strength to their advantage to invent creative solutions to puzzles and defeat enemies. Freely switching between the three heroes enables gamers to utilise the remarkable powers of each of them individually and save the kingdom from evil.

The Wizard is one of the most unique of the three heroes as he can defy gravity through the art of levitation and create or manipulate boxes. As with each of the characters, the Wizard’s abilities develop and increase as players advance through the 16 different levels and his powers are particularly vital to solve the numerous physics-based action puzzles.
The ‘three rotating gears’ puzzle requires gamers to use the Wizard’s ‘Box Spell’ to throw blocks into the middle of three large spokes, stopping them from rotating so they can be safely navigated. The Wizard’s capability to make objects levitate can be used as a weapon. For example, players can make barrels, planks or boxes hover in the air before dropping them onto and destroying attacking enemies.
As players progress in Trine, the Wizard develops a ‘Plank Spell’ that can be used to link wooden planks to boxes and construct a bridge. The bridge can then be moved, allowing the Wizard to lift and transport the other characters across large gaps. The Wizard also gains possession of an ‘explosive device’, a pyramid shaped object that can be lit from a flaming sword or arrow and explodes after a few seconds.
Large gaps can be crossed by casting the ‘explosive device’ object and making it float using the Wizard’s levitation skills. The device can also be attached to the Thief’s rope so that in co-operative mode, players can swing the Thief over large openings using the rope’s grappling hook. The ‘explosive device’ is the closest item the Wizard has to a fireball and its capability increases after each level is successfully completed.
