Publisher Modus Games has released a new behind-the-scenes video of Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince. In today's video the developer goes deep into the overarching story of the Trine series, and the inspirations behind the art direction of Trine 4.
The video showscases several elements, including concept art from the various Trine games and in-studio footage of artists’ work in progress, two Trine 4 boss battles, and the real-world Finnish flora and fauna that inspired the newest Trine game. 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.
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.
After years apart, the Astral Academy has requested help from the three heroes to find Prince Selius, whose intensely dark nightmares have begun to slip into reality and wreak havoc on the waking world. Encounter more epic boss fights than ever before, solve fascinating puzzles, unlock new skills, explore lush, vibrant landscapes, and experience a hauntingly beautiful new soundtrack by the composer of Trine 1-3. Additionally, and for the first time ever, Trine adds four-player co-op to its feature list.
Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince will launch on the 8th of October on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.
