Trine is a beautiful fantasy action platformer with a fairytale-like atmosphere, following the journey of three heroes - a Wizard, a Knight and a Thief - in a quest to save the kingdom from evil. The gameplay is based on fully interactive physics - each character's different abilities and tactics can be used to invent new ways to battle an army of undead and overcome obstacles, and restore the balance of the world.

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.

Hi guys, Joel here, sorry for the absence! I've updated the price of the game so it's now $9.99 as it's elsewhere too - if anyone just bought the game at the earlier price let me know and we can think of something.

Indeed there is none. We probably won't release a Linux demo due to a few reasons... Sorry! (But we will do so for Trine 2 eventually.)

I can't get the sound to work in Trine 1. Beyond that, I bought Trine 2 and it doesn't even have native 64bit binaries. I have to say, although I appreciate the Linux support thus far, I'm rather disappointed in the quality of the Linux releases from Frozenbyte.

Yeah the 64-bit binaries were discussed in the Trine 2 page (in short for everyone else: some of the middleware we use does not yet have 64-bit available so we're a bit stuck, although not forever possibly but no promises yet).

The sound is more curious - you can either check the forums ( ) or send an email ( ) and we can see. Oh and the old Linux FAQ might help too:

Thanks, I didn't see that FAQ site. It looks like my problem is on there, so I'll try fixing it when I get back to the computer that it was acting up on.

I fixed it. I had my .asoundrc file incorrectly configured. I use JACK, so I honestly should have the burden of figuring it out.

There was some talk about the missing sound in the troubleshooting section of the forum, but unfortunately I can't seem to find it... Your best bet would be to contact Frozenbyte support crew.

I was disappointed and surprised that the Linux version doesn't support multiplayer using KB&mouse, yet the Windows version does. Hopefully Trine 2 will do it. I would be totally fine with using xinput in terminal to setup the KB&mouse pairs, though a gui tool could easily simplify this.

Yeah I think we use Windows-specific libraries for that, RawMouse or something, which isn't available for Linux. Trine 2 uses SDL all the way I believe, and I think it works in Linux too (not 100% sure though).

Trine was fun, one of the few newer games that I actually completed =P. I haven't tried the co-op splitscreen mode yet, but I will during my second playthrough. It's a really beautiful platform game where you will solve different types of puzzles with different character, who has different abilities. There's some bonuses along the way that I like, find hidden items for example, gives you another reason to replay. Good Game!
