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.
Really nice graphics and music. I also really like the narrator (German version). Co-op is also really fun.
But, especially concering Co-op, unfortunately the game has big problems with gamepads:
- Linux: The deadzone for the left analog stick is like 0, resulting in character walking without a direction beeing pressed. The walkaround is to configure the gamepad with some tool
- Linux: For the 2nd gamepad, the right analog stick does not work. When using the pads as first device, they all worked. I have found no workaround.
- Windows: So I tried the Windows version to be able to play Co-op. But here I could not configure the gamepads at all. Workaround: switching to some old version.
So after all these troubles I was finally able to play Co-op with 2 friends. But If I didn't have a Windows partition I would not have been able to play Co-op what would be really sad, as Co-op is really a lot of fun!
The game itself is really beautiful and (especially Co-op) a lot of fun. I'd rate it 10/10 if it wasn't for the gamepad issues. These gamepad issues can be solved, but I needed Windows for playing Co-op. I really wanted to play the game with Linux...
The overall impression it's good, as almost everybody said, but i felt uncomfortable playing with mouse and keyboard and my gamepad doesn't work, both under windows and linux OSs and i still don't know why.
Graphics and sound are nice but, in my opinion, this game is not the best you can get from Frozenbyte.
