The problem games writers will have with Trine 2 is that we already exhausted our superlatives on how wonderful the original game looked. And the sequel looks better.
Fortunately, there are still a few more weeks (possibly even months) until the game launches, so there’s time to invent a few more. So, er, yes, ‘gorgeouserrific’ is totally a word. As is ‘spledightful’.
Frozenbyte doesn’t seem to be messing with the formula too much; once again we’ll be controlling three heroes (Knight, Wizard and Thief) either in single-player swapsie mode, or in offline and (new to the sequel) online co-op.
When it’s released later this year, Trine 2 will be available through Xbox LIVE, PlayStation Network and digital PC platforms.
