new or old heroes?

Who are the heroes this time for Trine 2? Is it the original three characters or new characters completely? Well I've seen the Trine 2 trailer and the characters look exactly the same as the first so if they are new you should probably change them up a bit. If it is the original three then don't change a thing unless you feel like it.

Although I would like to see the knight in a new black armor with added spikes and possibly more defense.

I think Trine had some pretty amazing character interaction, but here's my question: Will the Wizard have his pants this time? Or will they somehow escape once again :lol:

Anyway, adding more wheels to the game may off-balance it a little bit, it's easy to forget about some characters and only use one or two as is... just my thoughts :)

The trailer does show and state that the current heroes have to go on a quest again. But the ending of Trine says..

*SPOLIEERRRRESSS*

That the wizard had children and the thief went off into the forest.

Wizard can always leave his family for a bit and you can always look up the Thief from forests. ;)

You can't just leave your family to die

Who says you can't? Besides, he's a wizard (of sorts), he can probably block the house in with boxes and bridges ;)

And you're forgetting that the Wizard's offspring are perfectly capable of taking care of themselves, after all they have mastered the fireball spell. :mrgreen:

So yes, the characters return in Trine 2,. They will get new skills and the gameplay will be a lot more varied than you might think at the moment, but more on that later... :) Also, the characters visual look will be upgraded - the trailer and any upcoming video materials and screenshots have the old characters because we won't re-do them until much later in the project.

As long as the mother of these wizardlings is capable of tracking down lost pants :) Of course, that's a magic in its own right!

Aren't the Wizard's children only 1 year old?

They're the children of a wizard, duuh. Haven't you heard? A wizard did it. End of discussion :lol:


By saying "the characters visual look will be upgraded" do you mean you're spending most of your resources on the thief's rope swinging animation?

The wizard's children also have a mom you know. She could easily take care of them and besides they can take care of them self.

Most likely the grappling hook and its use/animations/etc will be improved quite a bit, but it's just one small part of the whole thing. (Not sure I quite got the question but I guess it's alright.)

Edit: Hah ok. :)

Legs. I think that's enough of a hint about where I was going with that :P I wonder if the wizard could grab that cloth...

If you plan on changing the look of the characters, i hope you really mean their clothes and armors an not the characters them self. Just imagine a tall muscle knight in Trine...brrrr *freezing* he hast to be the same as in Trine one, such a great warrior with its funny bland comments about their traveling ;)

You could make the original costumes a bonus to get as a bonus in the game...hope you do :D

Maybe our heroes will start the game with their Trine 1 outfit and will get new clothes, armor on their journey?

You can see a glimps at their maybe future clothes while looking at the artwork on the Trine 2 page.

Yes, clothes and armor and such (and all of the technical stuff too, like the quality of the textures), not the characters themselves. :) But we'll see how it goes, it's too early to think about that yet.
