It has been a long time since I tested Splot’s demo version, but today I did.
I have to say the team has done great work developing the game. It is running smoothly now and it works so much better on iPad than earlier.
There is also a nice new feature in the first world of the game: a hand with a pointing finger that shows you the way through the level. I guess the guys have put it there for the newbie players like me.
When you start up Trine 2 on PC (and Mac), we are making sure that all of the possible controllers out there are configured correctly.
So far we have bought, tested and binded button configs for about 15 different pads and expect the number to grow to about 20, thus hopefully we can cover about 90% of the options out there.
Keyboard and mouse support will still be available and better than ever, but if you want to play 3 player local co-op, I think using additional controllers might be the way to go. That is unless you and your friends really really like the key/mouse combo and have a lot of table top space available.
In this video we introduce a new game mode that will be available in the upcoming Trine 2. Unlimited mode allows you and your friends use any variation of the three heroes that you might want. So change characters as much as you want and finally get to play with three wizards and make a ton of boxes.
Also we would like to remind you that you can still purchase the current HumbleBundle and get a lot of cool Frozenbyte games for any amount of money, helping out us but also nice charities.
As a bonus for getting so far, we are also releasing a new version of the Splot demo that is very far along. Still the Splot release date remains as “it’s done when it’s done”, but at least now you can check out how far it has come. (Splot Beta is only available to people who have purchased the Humble Frozenbyte Bundle or the Humble Frozen Synapse Bundle).
