Hej Frozenbyte,

Just my thoughts and feelings:

Trine 1 and 2 are pure art. The only letdown for me is that both games lacks a LAN mode. If there will be any further upgrades to the Trine engine (Trine 3 :wink: ), please consider to add a DRM-free LAN option to the original two games besides the local Co-op. I really want to be able to play these masterpieces in the distant future with my friends and family at a great distance, but online servers aren't future-proof and can go offline and I hate that feeling, especially in something like Trine.

Regards,
Yodake

T2 and T EE don't use any central servers during online gaming. There's only a server for matchmaking, all actual communication is peer to peer. That said, I think we have pure LAN game disabled in release builds. Enabling it isn't much more than a flip of a switch. However, adding that switch to GUI and making sure people understand what they are doing is a more complicated task. So if we add LAN game, it will probably just be an undocumented option in Options.txt.
