Publisher Modus Games sits down with the writer, art director, producer, and vice president of Frozenbyte to go behind-the-scenes of Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince’s art and story in the latest Modus Indie Access video. See exclusive footage from inside the Frozenbyte Studio, learn about the overarching story of the Trine series, and discover the inspirations behind the art direction of Trine 4 – both from within the game, and the Finnish nature that influenced the environments you’ll see when Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince launches on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC on October 8, 2019.
View concept art from the various Trine games and in-studio footage of artists’ work in progress, get a glimpse of two Trine 4 boss battles, and discover real-world Finnish flora and fauna that inspired the newest Trine game in the video. Drawing inspiration from Finland’s stunning wilderness, Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince’s lush environments deliver an enchanting array of surreal vistas. But, the beauty of these vibrant lands is overcast by Prince Selius’ evocations, which are spreading a foreboding, violet-tinted darkness with their menacing presence.
Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince marks the series’ return to its side-scrolling platforming roots, standing as the first in the series to accommodate teams of four and dynamically shift its puzzles based on a party’s headcount. Adventurers can dive right into the series’ latest entry on launch day, or revisit the entire story thus far by picking up Trine: Ultimate Collection, which also releases on Oct. 8 and will include Trine Enhanced Edition, Trine 2: Complete Story, Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power, and Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince.
Digital pre-purchases are now available for Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince and Trine: Ultimate Collection on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Steam, and GOG. Users who pre-purchase Trine: Ultimate Collection on PlayStation 4 will get instant access to Trine Enchanted Edition, Trine 2: Complete Story, and Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power. All digital pre-orders will also include launch day access to the bonus DLC level Toby’s Dream.
