Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power Announced at GDC

This is a busy couple of weeks for technology folks between MWC, GDC, PAX East and SPIE (ok, the last one isn’t consumer focused but will drive the technology for the next decade). Today at GDC (Game Developer Conference) Frozenbyte announced Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power, the second sequel to the popular 2009 side-scrolling medieval fantasy platformer.

Rather than the straight side-scrolling platformer action of the first two games, now we get a mix of 2D platforming with 3D exploration and combat. According to the developer, Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power will feature three heroes who are brought together to embark on a new adventure through a world filled with puzzles, dangerous enemies and strange magic.

Frozenbyte confirmed a PC release for later this year, with anticipated likelihood of the game coming to consoles as well. The previous chapter came to Playstation 4, and it seems likely we will see this game on other systems. Maybe I’ll get lucky and it will come to the Playstation Vita?

I have loved technology for as long as I can remember - and have been a computer gamer since the PDP-10! Mobile Technology has played a major role in my life - I have used an electronic companion since the HP95LX more than 20 years ago, and have been a 'Laptop First' person since my Compaq LTE Lite 3/20 and Powerbook 170 back in 1991! As an avid gamer and gadget-junkie I was constantly asked for my opinions on new technology, which led to writing small blurbs ... and eventually becoming a reviewer many years ago. My family is my biggest priority in life, and they alternate between loving and tolerating my gaming and gadget hobbies ... but ultimately benefits from the addition of technology to our lives!
