Major Trine Update Should Be Released In The Next Few Months

Posted by , | Views: 7,922
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 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?

These guys and their games are great. I hope they keep making new games too, and continue supporting Linux.

I have no idea myself. Haven't bought Trine or Trine 2 yet. Ever since I found out that a new Linux client for Trine was being made, I held off from buying either game so that I could play them in chronological order. Considering that this new Linux client should launch fairly soon, why not just play other games until then?

I've played a bit of Trine and 6 hours of Trine 2 and I think you can play Trine 2 just nicely without touching Trine. Of course playing Trine first helps you understand some things like what the Trine actually is and stuff like that, but Trine 2 is enjoyable on its own too.

Frozenbyte is currently working on Splot but there is not much information available on the game's webpage so far.

Yeah, I'll probably do that - just wondering. I like to play the series in order they were made, that's why I was holding back on Trine 2 or Metro:LL. But I can imagine that for some games it doesn't matter much, like Crusader Kings II or Left 4 Dead 2 (or does it? ;-).

I am like that too! Deep Silver bringing Metro 2033 satisfies me greatly, much like what Frozenbyte is doing here. There is money to be made, but I always feel the developers and publishers here care about uniformity as well and that I admire.

I bought Trine and Trine 2 during the Humble sale a couple weeks ago, but haven’t tried them yet. It’s nice to see that Frozenbytes are working on the Linux version themselves and bringing Trine to Steam!

Trine is a worthy successor to the great game "Lost Vikings"

This games good enough to play them, not only for buy them. (Have both on Steam and HB)
Personally I'd like Trine 2 rather than Trine.
