Major Trine Update Coming & Linux Version Heading To Steam

By - | Views: 11,937
Have you been missing playing the original Trine on Steam? Well the wait will be over this year as Trine is getting a major update with a new Linux port onto Steam.

News comes from a GOL supporter & the developers, so thanks to both for confirming this!
Lauri, Frozenbyte TeamSorry it has taken so long! We are doing a major update to Trine 1 and the Linux version will be included in that version. The DRM-free Linux version was done by other team so we cannot use that one directly in Steam, or that would be quite difficult at least. We are hoping to release the Steam Linux version during this summer, but there may come some unexpected delays.

About
Trine is a fantasy action game where the player can create and use physics-based objects to beat hazardous puzzles and threatening enemies. Set in a world of great castles and strange machinery, three heroes are bound to a mysterious device called the Trine in a quest to save the kingdom from evil.

You can grab the current version DRM free from the developers directly for $9.99. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Any idea if the "major update" is just a technical one (i.e. bug fixes) or if it will add content to the game?

...this summer? The summer of 2014? Not sure what's more surprising here: that they're willing to put half a year of effort into such an old game of theirs (which does have a very good sequel), or that it's going to take them this long.

Good news nonetheless.

I dislike this developer they never updated their Desura build (once they were on steam they ignored everything else...) and i'm still waiting for Splot

When I spoke with one of the guys there, he was very nice and forthcoming as well as quick to respond. Why not pop them an email asking about the Desura build and whatever Splot is?

To be fair, I have tried to speak with them about their Desura issues and never received a response.

That being said, I have gotten way too much DRM free Linux native enjoyment from their game titles to condemn them too much for it.

I would still very much appreciate them looking into their Desura issues as well though.

I'll be disappointed if they don't fix the DRM-free version. I couldn't finish the game due to crashes. It's a pity.

I will give Hamish and you the email of the guy I spoke to at Frozenbyte as he's been quick to respond. It most certainly would not hurt to try.

Well, I'll be damned, things may start moving:
Quote from Lauri HyvärinenThis indeed is a mishap of ours and I'll ask our content team to update both Desura version of T2 and the HiB/other Humble services at earliest point. Sorry for the delay!

Good call FutureSuture. :)

Glad I could be of aid, Hamish! I hope berarma sees this too. All within 24 hours as well! Keep that email in case you need it again in the future! ^_^

I will be skipping any more Frozenbyte games as much as I liked the original trine. When it says it runs on Linux and they actually mean it only runs on Udumbtoo I am not interested. Missing dependencies on Debian Stable and Testing for Trine the complete series.
