If you have ever wanted to mod Trine or develop your own epic platform adventure you can now do just that.

Whilst there is little supporting documentation at the moment, the Frozenbyte guys have given the full in house tools they used to make the games, here's what they say.

Frozenbyte wrote:The reason we’ve held off releasing the editor to the public before has been quite simple. It’s pretty difficult to use if you don’t know what you’re doing, and there’s *very* little documentation or tooltips.

The Frozenbyte Editor is a very diverse tool. This is what we use to make games like Trine and Trine 2, and it’s based entirely on our own technology. You can now edit existing maps, make new maps and do all kinds of things with it. If this sounds like fun, go a head and play with the features and experiment!

So did we make an easy-to-use version for everyone to enjoy? The answer to that is…not really :) Instead we’ve opened a wiki page and provided some very basic instructions on how to use our editor. It’s an open wiki after you’ve registered, so anyone can edit and post information, and we hope that people will start to share their knowledge with everyone. We’ll also be updating the wiki ourselves and tracking that all the instructions are correct and up-to-date.

So what are you waiting for follow these instructions and jump in.

Instructions for Installing Trine 2 Editor

Working on a Trine or Trine 2 mod / total conversion or addon, feel free to submit them to the listing & promote your hard work to the world.

Hello Joel,

first of all: Thanks for the help via mail. If you remember: I asked you if the humble version of Trine 1 will incule a Steam and a Desura key... now my new question:

Do you know when the Windows-DRM-free-Version will be released? I want to add it to my Windows-Desura and Linux-Desura to get rid of one more Steam game...

And I have another question: Do the DRM free Linux, Mac and upcoming Windows-version have a global Multiplayer server so I can join Windows-Players-Games under Linux? And if not: Could you be so kind and implement it? There're not that many players online anyway, so there's a need to bring them cross-plattform together.

Thanks in advance!

No clear date on the Windows DRM free version at the moment, but it's still planned.

We have just released an update on Steam, and will soon get it released for Linux and Mac here on Desura (and Humble) that enables cross-platform multiplayer (in beta phase but should be good). So once all versions are updated to v1.15 you should be able to join Windows games with a Linux Trine 2. :)

I've read about Director's Cut version which will get released this year. If I buy Trine 2 now, will I get Director's Cut as a free update or should I wait for it?

That's a great question with no easy answer at the moment. So right now here's what I'd suggest: If you know you will buy the Wii U, then wait for the game for Wii U. If not, then I wouldn't worry about it too much, you can go for the PC version now - we're going to make a big splash on Wii U but we will also keep our PC folks happy although I can't make any surefire promises right now.

Hey Joe! Great to see you actually watch here. Anyhow, the page says it's a beta version. Is that still true? I don't have a problem with it. I'm just curious.

It's still in "beta" but it's really rather final. :) We'll get out of beta in late June most likely.

Runs beautifully on Linux Mint Debian Edition 64 bit as long as you install the OpenGL 32 bit drivers from repository. 360 controller works flawlessly, beautiful piece of work this.

Yes. :) That's why it takes so long (we need to sync all platforms etc, it's a lot of work and right now we have some other stuff going on as well).

The original was a gem, and the sequel is even better!
