Lyon, France, the 5th of December 2008 â€“ Immediate release. Nobilis and Frozenbyte are proud to announce that the fantasy action game â€œTrineâ„¢â€ (PlayStationÂ® Network and PC) will be released in Q2 2009.
Trineâ„¢ is a fantasy action game where the player can create and use physics-based objects to beat hazardous puzzles and threatening enemies. Set in a world of great castles and strange machinery, three heroes are bound to a mysterious device called the Trine in a quest to save the kingdom from evilâ€¦
The gameplay is based on fully interactive physics – each character’s different ability helps the player battle an army of un-dead and defeat hazardous contraptions. The player can at any time freely choose whoever is best suited for the upcoming challenge or puzzle: The Wizard is able to summon objects to help solve puzzles and create new ways to overcome obstacles, the Thief uses her agility and dead-on accuracy to swiftly surprise the monsters, and the Warrior unleashes mayhem and physical destruction wherever he goes.
â€œThis is the first game we publish on the PlayStationÂ® Network and we are thrilled to work with Frozenbyte on this very exciting game project!â€ declares Arnaud Blacher, CEO of Nobilis Group.
â€œTrineâ„¢ is a true testament to Frozenbyte’s new strategy focusing on original IP.
