Some interesting behind the scenes footage of the making of Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince.

Why don’t you have a gander at Modus Games’ new Indie Access video series showcasing Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince by developers Frozenbyte. The ‘making-of’ video goes through the evolution of the Trine series from a side project of a developer at Frozenbyte to becoming a massive hit for the studio.

Alongside new footage of Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince, Frozenbyte candidly reflects on development decisions they’ve made in their decade-long career and discusses how the studio has refocused itself, returning to its roots to improve on Trine 3, which was over-ambitious and somewhat of a disappointment to Trine fans.

Trine 4 is set to be the longest Trine game to date, boasting more gameplay than Trine 1 & 2. There will be a collectors edition of Trine 4 (Trine: Ultimate Collection) available at launch that will contain Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince, and all previous Trine games – a great way to catch up on some great story lore.

Featuring an all-new story that reunites Amadeus, Pontius, and Zoya, Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince returns to the magic of 2.5D with the puzzle-platforming gameplay that defined a genre in Trine 1 and 2. Play as the three iconic heroes in the most extensive Trine adventure yet, complete with stunning new environments and dynamic, physics-based puzzles that fans have grown to know and love.

Key Features of Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince include:

  • Gorgeous, 2.5D landscapes. Explore uniquely designed levels in beautiful, 2.5 dimensions, from breathtaking ruins and haunted tombs to tranquil birch groves and blueberry forests.
