Trine 2 is less of a sequel, and more radical cosmetic surgery. Frozenbyte have exploded the formula into a beautiful, rainbow-sodden spectacle. You don’t realise how few purple and green crystal-lit caverns there are out there, until you’re forced to stop and bask in one. Trine is a fairytale platforming adventure, based around a magical floating sconce that’s bound together the souls of a wizard, a knight and a thief. The story itself is sweet enough – perfectly charming and a shade too earnest – but what really drives you, beyond the irresistible instinct in platformers to travel to the right, is the satisfaction that’s gained from solving the inventive physics-based puzzles.
Trine 2's luscious backdrops might be the best thing about it. Each one feels carefully posed, as though its creators have spent hours snipping away at it delicately like a Bonsai tree. Snowy mountain tops, burning castles and glowing deserts will feature in the upcoming, unnamed, unpriced expansion pack. It'll contain six new levels, new enemies to fight and a new "hardcore" difficulty level. Frozenbyte are calling it an "AAAA" expansion, saying "we prefer to steer away from the “DLC” concept. So many negative associations with that these days." Except now I associate their expansion with a tiny battery, which probably isn't what they were going for. Keep an eye on the Trine 2 site for more details.
[embed width="610" height="340"]http://youtu.be/XxPg1YeXE2E[/embed] Ridiculously pretty co-op platformer, Trine 2 will be hitting Steam tomorrow. The standard edition will cost £11.99 / $14.99 , and there's also a digital special edition. It comes with a digital art book and the soundtrack and will set you back £17.99 / $24.99 USD. If you pre-order them now, you'll get two bonus Team Fortress 2 items, a wizard hat and a spiky "War Head" helmet to "protect your thought-horde from dragons, sorcery, and other make-believe dangers." Trine 2 can be played solo, but if it's anything like the original, it'll be much, much more fun in co-op. The three playable archetypes, wizard, warrior and thief have different specialities, and must muddle through the fights and physics puzzles with hastily improvised solutions, many of which would involve the warrior throwing the wizard around while the thief casually grapples past all danger. A new online co-op more will make it easier to play with friends as well. It looks stunning, too. Just check out these Trine 2 screenshots. You'll find a picture of the bonus TF2 items just below.
Trine was a too-often overlooked gem: an ingenious, inventive physics platformer with some stunning vistas and neat tri-player puzzles. Sadly, it also had a difficulty level that erratically jolted between pleasant and torturous. Thankfully, they're taking another stab at it: as the trailer and screens below show. Trine 2 will bring back the first game's three classes - Warrior, Thief and Wizard - but you can now play with your friends online. The first game only allowed you to play on the same PC, which was cosy but rather inconvenient. If they can also make the Warrior more useful, and the Thief less dominant, it should be a lovely jaunt.
The latest trailer for Trine 2 showcases more of the game's stunning fairytale environments, and some of the giant creatures who live in them. There are giant spiders, giant snails, giant plants and giant see-saw puzzles. Maybe the world isn't giant, maybe you're just really, really small. Anyhow, Trine 2 is an interesting prospect. The three-player co-op of the first game was brilliant in an experimental, 'accidentally killing your friends by trying to help them' sort of way. You can try it for yourself in the Steam demo. Hopefully the sequel can be just as fun when it's released later this year as a digital download. More on the Trine 2 site.
Released last year, Trine was beautiful platformer with body-swapping puzzles and co-op. A sequel is in the works, and a new video released this week suggests it's going to be more of the same, with online co-op making it even easier to play together.
Trine was beautiful. Trine 2 looks even better. All of the new images on the Trine 2 site are detailed and vibrant enough to endure hours of fascinated staring. If you're looking for a new desktop background, here are nine candidates, showing a giant octopus, an Ork king, an extremely purple moon and a dragon. It's like an artist's dream down there. Just look at the colours. The co-op platformer is set to arrive in December.

The Humble organisers aren't afraid of side-projects, but now that they've had their fill of stand-up comics and corporate overlords, they're returning back to the very source of their humility.

You'll also find FTL, Mark of the Ninja, Trine 2, Brutal Legend and Eets Munchies.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uH4SS2oG_uc Do you remember Armadillo Run? Sadly the answer is "Probably not". The physics puzzler was awesome, but has been largely forgotten. How awesome? Well according to this video Tom Francis spotted today, totally bloody awesome. The highlight has to be the little tank that drives the Armadillo along while firing rockets out of its gun. Priceless.

Pandas in World of Warcraft? Really? Could this trademark filing be an indicator of Blizzard's future plans? Considering the Pandaren have been the subject of not one, but two April Fools jokes before we're more than a little cautious. But one thing is certain, they are adorable. Less Pandas, more news inside.
What is this bizarre and creepy video? It was spotted by Redditor NovaeDeArx, who believes it could be a new Valve ARG. Why? Because a string of characters that appear in the middle of the video, once decoded, lead to an uploaded Half Life 2: Episode 2 map. Which you can see here. It certainly appears to be an ARG of some kind, but whether it is being orchestrated by Valve, another company or just some talented amateurs remains to be seen. Check inside for less spooky news.

When he isn't been dressing as Spock for our Star Trek themed Artemis feature, Graham has been playing Battlefield 3, and he picked up on a bit of slightly odd behaviour from one of his squadmates. Witness as the the man casually ambles through a wall before turning around and coming back as if nothing has happened. It's almost like he's saying "What? I was just breaking the laws of time and space, it's no big deal." It's the best kind of gaming bug, not particularly damaging to the experience, but really funny. Check inside for a wall phasing selection of PC gaming news.

SOPA protests: Minecraft, Firefall, Reddit going dark next week. Nvidia, Runic and Frozenbyte come out against the bill
Earlier this week Reddit announced that they would be switching off for twelve hours next Wednesday from 8am–8pm EST (1300–0100 UTC) in protest at the Stop Online Piracy Act. Today Red 5 Studios and Mojang have announced that they will also go dark and Nvidia, Runic and Frozenbyte have voiced their opposition to the bill. Red 5 CEO, Mark Kern confirmed to Shacknews that "Red 5 Studios is joining Reddit in protest of SOPA by going dark on January 18. We will be taking down our website, community site and Firefall beta for 24 hours on the 18th." "We are extremely disappointed in this misguided legislation. We are also ashamed of the ESA for supporting a bill which is clearly not in the best interests of gamers or the game industry. This bill, and it's sister bill, Protect IP, will shut down live streaming, shout casting, user generated content and have a chilling effect on game innovation and social media," he added. On Twitter, Notch has mentioned that Minecraft.net and Mojang.com will go down next Wednesday in protest.
