Southpeak announces Trine for PC

7:00 PM on 06.25.2009 // Colette Bennett

I first got my hands on Trine at E3 nestled in the corner of the Atlus booth. Having heard nothing about it up to this point, I found myself quickly enamoured with what I saw. A graphically rich, gorgeous side scrolling title, Trine uses realistic physics and multiple characters to aid you in your journey. I was in love and ready to see more, but being in my usual E3 rush, I couldn't spend as long as I liked delving into the title.

Today, SouthPeak Interactive announced they will be bringing Trine to the PC later this summer. That's excellent news for PC owners, but if you're waiting to see it pop up on PSN, I'm afraid we don't have any word on when that is going to happen. In the meantime, you can keep an eye on the game's official site, and as soon as we know more we'll deliver it to your little ears as fast as humanly possible.

SouthPeak to Publish Critically Acclaimed ‘Trine’™ on PC in North America


Receiving Critical Acclaim and Awards at E3 2009, ‘Trine’™ Features Fully Interactive Physics and Three-Player Cooperative Play

MIDLOTHIAN, VA – June 25, 2009 – SouthPeak Interactive Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: SOPK) today announced that it will publish Trine™ for PC in North America later this year.

Having received critical acclaim at E3 2009, this distinctive and absorbing fantasy game uses fully interactive physics and multiple characters to engage players on an epic journey.

The game’s beautiful graphics, combined with its immersive and challenging puzzle solving quests, has brought Trine™ nominations and awards, including winning the GameSpot Editors' Choice Award for “Best Downloadable Game” at E3 2009 in Los Angeles.

Trine™ had an amazing E3 and we can’t wait to get it into the hands of PC gamers,” said Richard Iggo, VP of Marketing at SouthPeak Interactive. “The PC platform gives as many players as possible the chance to join forces and find creative methods for completing game objectives. It’s up to them to determine how their quests will progress and how they’ll ultimately achieve victory.”

In Trine™, players work together to create and use objects to solve challenging physics-based puzzles and defeat dangerous enemies. Set in a kingdom on the verge of chaos, a warrior, a wizard, and a thief are bound by a powerful artifact known as "the Trine". Together, they must battle the forces of space, energy, and motion to put an end to the reign of the dark sorcerer that rules the kingdom.

Featuring three-player cooperative play, each character has specific talents to invent new solutions to puzzles and original ways to defeat enemies. The Wizard can use magic to create objects and new paths, the Thief can use her agility and accuracy to quickly deal with enemies, and the Warrior unleashes pure destruction everywhere he travels.

Trine™ will be available on PCs in summer 2009.  For more information visit

Boy howdy, does Divinity: Original Sin take a while to get going. But, it was worth it in the end. Probably the most hardcore RPG I've played. Stellar writing, at that! Combat's pretty amazing too. [img][/img]

So it seems I've locked into the Neutral ending for SMT IV and now I need to find specific challenge quests and complete them...? How (un)fun! Google is your friend - the videogame.

Interested in playing some Pathfinder? Trying to arrange a Dtoid Pathfinder group for Saturday nights (GMT) on Skype & Roll 20. If you're new to pen-and-paper RPGs, I don't mind at all and can bring you up to speed quick. Just comment if interested.

Local convention had a great selection of game soundtracks 5 for $20! I got Halo 3: ODST (2 disk!), Gears of War 2, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Darksiders 2 (2 disk!), and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. Some of the best soundtracks of the last 7 years!

Photos and videos are back on quickposts but clipping on some devices. We're going to add a new quickpost editing interface so photos and videos can only be displayed one way (a la twitter) to solve this. Also, a My cBlog link was added to your user menu

Machine-washed my Wii Fit meter yesterday by accident. Took the battery out and let it dry for the night. Luckily the meter still worked - but it had counted a fair number of steps more that day.

After reading a blog post about DMC4 I decided to watch all the cutscenes on Youtube. Tried the games years ago and couldn't get into them, but man that shit was stylish. Likeable protagonists, intense drama... still think DmC reboot wasn't that bad tho.

Just a reminder that you have until the 30th to get your Bloggers Wanted post, "Thankful it's over" in. I'm either going to tell you how I ruined my best online gaming experience or rip Twilight Princess a new one. Maybe both.

Huh. I just found out the developers of Hatred (remember that controversy?) region-locked their game to prevent it from being accessed by Australians. Destructive Creations are more censor-happy than Nintendo, it seems. Where's the outrage?
Oh yeah, I have an account on this site.

Got Resident Evil 4 Wii for $5. Uh ... this might be my favorite version. I'm just getting headshots nonstop. Did I miss any other Wii games that are frequently overlooked? Like, really obscure Wii games that no one talks about? I'm interested.

Update: played through Hyper Dimension Neptunia Rebirth, reminded why I don't like the series, and requested a refund on it and its sequel. Not sure if they'll refund the sequel, but if they honor at least the first, I'll use that money to get Undertale.

I hope the new Star Wars movie answers the biggest question I have about the franchise; do Midi-Chlorians poop?
