Trine 3 Steam Early Access Released, Buy The Action Puzzler Now For A Discounted Price
Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power, which was only officially announced in March, is now available on Steam Early Access.
The game was posted to Valve's digital store today, and can be purchased while still in development. If you buy the game now, you will get 10 percent off the normal price (and receive the full game once it launches). Right now the price is $17.99, which will go back to $19.99 when the promotion ends on April 28.
The series broke the 7 million copy sales mark last year, an impressive feat for what began as a small and somewhat niche game. The colorful fantasy titles combine class-based skills and well-designed platforming puzzles with online cooperative play, challenging you and your friends to overcome obstacles using unique ability sets.
Trine 3 looked visually fantastic in its debut trailer (below), and continues to do so in the screenshots on Steam. The vibrant colors and settings remain with excellent lighting and effects, and the animations look really fluid. There also look to be new camera perspectives: the previous games were sidescrolling only, but the trailer shows off some swinging cameras and behind-the-back views as you traverse the levels.
The Steam page has a fairly long description of the early access situation, so head over and read through if you'd like to know more. The full launch is expected during or after this summer.
