Trine for Mac coming to Steam in November

updated 05:40 pm EDT, Tue October 26, 2010

Physics-based take on hero quest

Award-winning fantasy platformer game Trine is on its way to the Mac, debuting on Steam in November and making its way to other digital distributors later this year. The game, which is already available for the PlayStation 3 and PC platforms, is a physics-oriented action adventure set in a fairytale-like atmosphere amid exceptionally rich graphics.

Players can play as a Wizard, a Knight or a Thief -- each with different abilities and tactics -- in a quest to save a kingdom from evil, overcoming both physical obstacles and an army of undead. Trine won the 2009 Editor's Choice award from Gamespot, and has garnered strong reviews, particularly for its graphics and physics engines (80 out of 100 on MetaCritic).

Frozenbyte, the game's Finnish developer, will debut the game as a SteamPlay title, meaning purchasers can play it on both Macs and PCs under the same license.

The game sells for $20. Mac system requirements for Trine have not yet been released, but Steam itself requires Snow Leopard/an Intel Mac, and the lower-end Intel GMA chipsets (like the 950 and X3100) are not supported.
