It's been over three weeks now since this was announced. I'm kinda running out of things to write about it at this point but basically HYPE!
Trine 3 is happening! This year even!
Man, I can't even tell you how excited I am. The Trine series is one of my favorites of all time. As far as indie games go they're incredibly high on my list and they even hold up to a lot of my favorite 'AAA games'.
So in honor of this momentous occassion, I'm going to give a bunch of Trine-related stuff away over the next couple of weeks.
Here's how it's going down. Over a period of five weeks, I'm going to give increasingly great gifts away, as follows:
Week #1: Trine Enchanted Edition
Week #2: Shadowgrounds and Shadowgrounds: Survivor
Week #3: Trine 2: Complete Story
- WINNER: Zer0t0nin
Not to be outdone by Gajknight's magic sperm, Zer0t0nin claimed that farts might be the answer to the Knight's flying trick. Having just finished South Park: The Stick of Truth, I am well aware of the great power of farts.
Week #4: Trine Complete Pack (= Trine Enchanted Edition, Trine 2: Complete Story)
Week #5: Frozenbyte Pack (= Trine Enchanted Edition, Trine 2: Complete Story, Shadowgrounds, Shadowgrounds: Survivor)
Week #?: Trine 3 (this contest will be put up the week of Trine 3's release)
The rules are very simple. Each week I'm going to ask you to answer a Trine-related question.
The funniest, most thoughtful, or most original answer wins! You guys know how I think by now, so give me something I'll enjoy and the games could be yours!
I will also allow, nay encourage, entering for a game you already own provided you have someone in mind to give it to. Same goes for entering in multiple weeks. So the winner of Week #1 is still eligible to participate in the following weeks, even in Week #4 and 5, but you're going to have to impress me.
Outside of answering the contest question, there is only one condition: no freeloaders.
I'm giving these games away out of love for Frozenbyte and the Dtoid community, so the very least you could do is be part of the Dtoid community. That goes double for Week #?. Don't worry too much though, if you're a regular around here I'll probably know you. I made a list of 99 Dtoiders off the top of my head, I'm pretty sure I'll manage.
And with that out of the way, this week we're moving on to the big leagues. This week you can win all of Trine all the time, with the Trine Complete Pack!
So what's this exactly? Well that should be obvious. It's a pack that includes both the original Trine and Trine 2!
Remember a couple of weeks ago, when I convinced the world that the original Trine was super fun? Yeah you do. This game's got tons going for it. From interesting Lost Vikings-esque puzzle gameplay to an amazing art direction to some gorgeous music, the original Trine is the king of indie games.
At least it was, until Trine 2 blew it out of the water. If you had paid attention last week you would've known that I talked about the sequel at some length. I talked about how it improved upon the puzzles of the first one, how it gave the characters more skills to play around with, how the graphics got even better and benefitted from an even better art direction, and how the music became more gorgeouser than it ever was.
Honestly, there's no good excuse not to want these game. Remember, you can win both of them! That's a solid 20 hours of gameplay if you're a completionist, and all for about a minute's worth of work. Ain't no lottery gonna beat that, son. Also remember that if you already own one of both of these games, you can always still enter for a friend. Is your best friend's birthday coming up but you don't know what to give him? Give him the gift of Trine! That girl you've got a crush on isn't noticing you, senpai? Send some Trine her away and watch the magic happen! And, like, talk to her for god's sake.

So, are you pining for some Trine? If so, here is the question I need you to answer to win this great game:
If you had to share the same body with two other people, who would you want them to be?
Remember, give me the funniest, most creative thing you can think of, and by this time next week you could celebrating your best friend's birthday with your crush.
Or, you know, play some Trine 1 and 2.
