I picked up Trine last night for $4.99 on Steam as part of the Holiday Sale. I watched the videos prior to my purchase, but I didn't realize how stunning the visuals were until I started playing. For a side-scrolling platformer, Trine delivers amazing 3D backgrounds. Also, the character models and enemies are well done.
On top of this, the game features top-notch physics game play as all manner of items can be moved and tossed around. So far, this has given some great variety to the levels. I often found multiple ways to complete a challenge. However, with such open gameplay, I found myself often wondering if what I just did was what I was supposed to do or did I get lucky? Or did I miss something? The game has kept me guessing, but thats a good thing.
I've embedded a video below of the game. Sit back and enjoy the visuals!
The Steam Holiday Sale for Trine ends in a couple hours, so go get it! Or for the non-Steam users, pick it up at Amazon.com.
