    IMG Reviews Trine
    6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

    Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of Frozenbyte's fantasy action adventure game, Trine. In the game players take command of three characters with unique abilities and must make use of their talents to save the land from evil.

    Here's an excerpt from the review:

    The game's story and premise start off quickly. A thief breaks into the Astral Academy intending to steal its treasures. She finds the titular Trine and gets more than she bargained for. Soon enough the wizard bumbles along, shortly followed by the knight. The Trine binds them all together and they set off on a journey to save the kingdom from darkness and solve the mystery of their predicament.

    Trine is ultimately a platformer with combat and light RPG elements thrown in. A variety of obstacles and challenges will present themselves to you, often requiring the unique skills of each character to get past, or even a mix of your characters abilities. You are free to switch between the three characters at will which makes for seamless gameplay.

    New Din's Curse Demo Available
    6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

    Soldak Entertainment has announced the release of a new demo for its latest fantasy action RPG, Din's Curse. The demo incorporates features introduced in the latest versions of the original game, and also includes content from the recently released expansion, Demon War.

    In the game players take the role of an adventurer cursed to walk the lands in a quest for redemption. The game features 141 possible class combinations (196 with the expansion), an infinite number of dynamically generated towns, and a game world directly impacted by player choices.

    Today we released a new Din's Curse demo for Windows and Macs. It is now a combined Din's Curse and Demon War demo, basically meaning it contains content from Din's Curse and the Demon War expansion. It also has been updated with all of the changes up to and including version 1.022.

    In the Din's Curse demo, you can get a taste of the dynamic and ever changing world. There is no time limit but it does limit everything to around level 6. The demos are about 135 MB.

    Din, champion of the gods, has cursed you into a second life of service because you selfishly squandered your first one while causing misfortune to those around you. To redeem yourself, you must impress Din by building a reputation for helping others. Travel the spacious western plains of Aleria and save desperate towns from the brink of annihilation. Until you're redeemed, you're doomed to wander the earth alone for all eternity.

    In Din's Curse, you will explore an extensive underground, slaying dangerous monsters, solving dynamic quests, dodging deadly traps, and in your spare time, plundering loot. Quell uprisings, flush out traitors, kill assassins, cure plagues, purge curses, end wars, and complete other dangerous quests or the danger WILL escalate. Not all is as it seems though, traitors will gladly stab you in the back, renegades can revolt against the town, spies can set up ambushes, and items might even curse or possess your friends.

    Choose one of 141 class combinations and journey to an infinite number of dynamically generated towns with vastly different problems. Every game is a surprise! Your actions have real consequences in this dynamic, evolving world. Your choices actually matter!
