Trine has local co-op in all versions. If you were looking for online/LAN co-op then unfortunately it's not possible.

Local co-op can be started in the second level after the tutorial, and you need either a gamepad or another set of keyboard/mouse. It's configured in the Options -> Controller configuration screen in the menu. Let me know if this helps.

I think you devs should rename it to hotseat coop or something like that so people won't think it means online coop. =)

Co-op always refers to the game being played with another person regardless of the method of play. In fact, it's moreso needed to say Online Co-op instead of hotseat co-op, whatever that means. It's almost as if the online co-op folks feel entitled to the co-op word and created another one for the original method of co-op which most game developers no longer support. Best thing I can say is get some friends :lol:. Just kidding. I know how difficult it is to find people to sit down and play a game with you these days even though it seems like more and more people are gaming.

Hotseat gamemode means that all players sit in front of the same computer and use the same keyboard and mouse to control their players or characters. For instance, Worms armageddon features this way of playing. I think this word is pretty much forgotten now because usually games require too complicated button binds to be able to be played on the same keyboard and mouse. Or games simply don't support turn based playing anymore.

Haha, I was able to pull the meaning out of context.I was merely noting it's a stupid made-up word which came about because some people are trying to change gaming terminology to suit their needs and confuse the rest of us..
