Trine 3 is now available in the Mac App Store
I do love myself a little Trine. I’ve loved it on the Mac, and I’ve loved it on the Wii U, and I’m about to love it all over again now that Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power has been released in the Mac App Store.
The Trine series, of course, centers around puzzle-based platform gaming in which you (and perhaps a couple of friends) utilize three characters with differing abilities in order to reach the game’s end. The adventure leads you through some of the most gorgeous visuals and cleverly designed landscapes you’re going to find in a video game no matter the system.
Specifically, this time:
Amadeus the Wizard, Pontius the Knight, and Zoya the Thief have slowly come to the conclusion that having their lives commandeered by a powerful magical artifact is not a desirable state of existence on a permanent basis.
The heroes try to return their extraordinary gifts to the Artifact called Trine, and so they meddle with powers beyond their understanding: Trine shatters, and a heartless ancient sorcerer escapes. With only a broken artifact to guide them, the heroes must try and repair the damage they’ve caused…or the damage that might yet be done.
You know, you can think of me what you will, but at least I’m not that guy who ever feels the need to meddle with powers beyond my understanding. I see a power I don’t understand, I just move right along, and no damage befalls anyone.
Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power features any mix of online and local co-op for up to three players, the highly challenging “lost pages” puzzles, a soundtrack by award-winning composer Ari Pulkkinen, and the type of fantastic fantasy you’d expect from the Trine series, now in a (somewhat controversial, apparently) 3D setting.
