It's sad, but not entirely unexpected that we will be left waiting for Trine 3. We did have to wait for ports of Trine and Trine 2, but when our editor Cheeseness spoke to Frozenbyte it sounded like the Linux version would be out during Early Access.

For those that don't remember, Lauri Hyvärinen from Frozenbyte previously said this about the Linux version:
QuoteIt's alive and well. It's coming for sure.


The game was then released into Early Access with no sign of a Linux version, but now we do have a clear picture.

The developers said this when replying to a user on their forum:
QuoteWe are planning to add Linux support, but unfortunately I can't say anything about the schedule. We'll probably get to it after the actual release. I recommend keeping an eye on our blog on our website for the latest news.

Cheers! :)


I hope they don't keep us waiting too long, as the new more 3D style looks fantastic!

About Trine 3
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. With a literally heartless ancient sorcerer on the loose, and 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.

Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power is a fairytale journey which takes you on a quest with three heroes: Amadeus the Wizard, Pontius the Knight, and Zoya the Thief.

That is sad news for it will mean once again possible Linux sales being counted as Windows sales because of any Linux gamer who can not wait until the Linux port is released.

Different launch dates for operating systems also gives companies like Farsight Studios false impression that Linux sales is too small for them to support our beloved operating system.

The Witcher 3 will be another game that causes a bit trouble. It is currently in discount and it has some pre-order extra for those who are interested. It is still unknown when the Linux version is coming and what kind of version it will be.

As long as Linux stays a tiny player in gaming business there will be late releases and more or less bad ports. I hope SteamOS and Vulkan will change the situation drastically but even then it will most likely take some time.

The linux version of Trine 1 is broken... At least the drmfree humblebundle version... (or I'm doing something bad)

Speaking of such things, what is the current state of the Enchanted Edition?

What's your problem? Playing it ever since I've bought it, and runs nicer than Trine 2 on my somewhat oldish computer....

When i'm trying to run it, it throws me "syntax error" on Ubuntu 14.04 32bit

The Enchanted Edition runs flawlessly (currently playing on Ubuntu 14.04 64bit via Steam). I'm fairly certain I'm using the beta access for it - whether it is available outside the beta, I can't say.

You'd have thought, being one of the earlier Linux supporters, that by now their development style would be cross-platform. Instead it seems they are still doing some type of "porting" work in-house after-the-fact. I assume this means the software they are using is still not cross-platform enough, otherwise there would be no reason for a release lag.

At least not in the Humble Store. For Win you get the Enchanted version if you bought it earlier, for Linux it's still the old one...

Weird. Sounds like some issue with the wrapper script. Have you tried running it directly (cd to the directory and type ./trine-bin32)?
Else ask the Humble Ninjas (support) - they's been quite willing to help so far when I needed them.
