The original Trine released nearly a decade ago and was followed up by a pair of sequels in the years following. The series became known for its 2.5D format before switching to a more 3D like experience for the third game. There was a certainly a vocal group of fans that preferred the more classic take on the franchise. And developer Frozenbyte has decided to give them what they want with the new Trine game.
Trine 4 Story:
In Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince players will reunite with the games well-known heroes – Amadeus the Wizard, Zoya the Thief, and Pontius the Knight — in a completely new tale.
