If you’ve yet to get involved with Frozenbyte’s Trine, a week-log reduction for the lovely platformer on Steam may be just enough to tip you over the edge.
It’s down from £20 to £15. It’s pretty enough to warrant it.

Puzzle-platformer Trine got a new patch over on Steam yesterday evening.
It allows players to save their game to Valve’s Steam Cloud service.
Now you can play it at the mistresses, at the dentist, on the train, or even during Uncle Woody’s funeral.
Other patch features include the addition of European languages (French, Italian, German, Spanish), and the fixing of “mystery developer keys” for non-regular keyboard buttons.

Frozenbyte has revealed that Trine will not be released on PSN this week as originally planned.
According to a post from the developer over on the official forums, a small bug needs to be fixed first.
“Unfortunately, Trine isn’t coming to PSN this week, and this time it’s our fault as there was discovered yet another small bug which needed to be fixed,” read the post. “I can’t tell for sure when the release is coming, as no-one really seems to know. Also, I have no idea are EU and NA releases timed differently.
“For us, not knowing is also a bit tough, but I hope it’s eventually worth all the waiting.”
Bit of bad news there, but it’s best to have a working game than a broken one.

Frozenbyte’s Joel Kinnunen has weighed-in on not only the disparity between price points on the recently released Trine, but the confusion over different versions of the game.
“We want Trine to be on XBLA but it, too, is out of our hands,” he told Eurogamer. “We’re working with Atlus to make it happen but it depends on so many things again.
“You know, at one point Trine was a PC-only game. That’s how it started. We’re really happy that it’s coming to PSN and if we get it to XBLA, then we’re even happier. The problem is that this is not really the optimal way to do a game (or a game launch).
“Trine as a project is a big mess, as opposed to Trine as a game, which is pretty sweet. Ultimately it’s the game part that really matters and helps us sleep at night, though.”

Frozenbyte’s confirmed to Shack that Trine PS3 will sell for $20: that’s half the price “official list” price.
In defence of the news, a Trine dev said on the site’s forums:
“[Pricing] guidelines are set by our publisher. Trine is far from a game created by a solo hero developer (we have over 20 employees and Trine has contributions from a double amount of people)” and “we are very confident that we can deliver a full retail experience with Trine (hence PC version is sold in retail also for approx 35 to 40 eur/usd!).”
“As for the PSN price, our publisher and Sony sets it,” Lauri wrote in a subsequent post, later adding “heck, even I don’t know it.”
“I just don’t find it fair to compare us to games which have started at similar or higher pricepoints,”
“It’s very obvious Trine will eventually cost less, so I guess I just wanted to say that if the price hurts more than waiting, then that’s the option.”
