Major Trine Update Should Be Released In The Next Few Months

By - | Views: 11,978
Followers of the penguin, as previously reported, Trine will receive a major update this year and that update will include a new Linux client done by Frozenbyte itself. This new Linux client will appear on Steam for Linux and will replace the existing Linux client currently available through the Humble Store.

Talking with Lauri from Frozenbyte, the major update and redone Linux client should be released in the coming months.
Lauri, Frozenbyte TeamThe Linux version should be out somewhere around July or August at latest. Sorry for the long wait! I hope the version we'll launch will be worth the wait ...


With the recent fiasco surrounding the launch of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings on Linux, it is good to see another developer taking the time to bring a much older game to Linux natively, especially one that already has a Linux client in place.

I've finished both Trine 1 and Trine 2. It's best to play in chronological order, as there is a story.

If you do play the 2nd one, play it in co-op. You'll get a lot more laughs out of it, and it'll make the experience last longer!

P.S: I played Trine 2 co-op beginning to end with my only other Linux friend in real life (The rest all use Windows). Worth it at full price, no joke.

Quoting: L4LinuxTrine is a worthy successor to the great game "Lost Vikings"

Thanks for that info! I loved Lost Vikings and also played the sequel in DosBox. Now I really can't wait to play Trine. ;-)

Wait, what?! Is there a sequel to The Lost Vikings? I'll have to find it and play the hell out of it, then!

Quoting: pbI have both Trine and Trine 2, but I haven't played either of them so far - should I play them in chronological order (i.e. keep waiting for #1 to get to Steam) or it doesn't matter?

I'd play the first one first, because the second one is a bit better, but both are worth playing, and that way, you get an even improving experience.

"The Lost Vikings" was developed by Silicon & Synapse, who later changed thei name to...Blizzard.

"Trine 2" can bring a low-end graphics card to its knees, but all that graphics power goes right to the screen.

the humble bundle version was on linux, but the steam version of the first one is windows only, bought the frozenbyte pack on steam, so i don't have the linux version of trine 1 (or shadowgrounds 1 and 2)
this port is different from the humble one since this is by it's original developpers, the previous was from external porters, also this one should come to steam, and will probably have less issues

Eh, they both have their advantages:

And yes, both of the Trine games and all of Frozenbyte's catalogue are on Linux already. This is just a new port made mostly so Frozenbyte can release it on Steam.
