Trine 2 Competition idea-thread

Postby FB_Esa » Mon Nov 28, 2011 5:12 pm

Good news everyone!

We here at Frozenbyte love our fans and because of that we want to give you, the community, a chance to pitch in and throw around ideas for future competitions.

We already have a couple of ideas for you guys to think over.

First being a general Fanpics-competition and second one being Phrases-competition.

Twitter Fanpic-competition involves around drawings/cosplay(ing)/anykind of Trine 2 related pics really. We want to see what you can come up with!

The Twitter Phrase-competiotion would involve funny phrases for Trine 2.
Every week we would give you a hashtag (for example: #Trine2hard, #Trine2much, #Trine2makeit, fakeit, etc.) and you would have to somehow incorporate that hashtag into your phrase.
Like: "Amadeus is #Trine2Succeed at casting Fireballs".

Lastly but not the least we have a Youtube-competition where you can basically do anything as long as its cool. It can be a speed run video or a "cool T2-video" where you pulled off some crazy maneuver!
Sky is the limit on this one but it has to be cool!

To make this a real competition, you would need prices. So we got you some prizes!

We are making a separate site (TBA) where you can vote different pics/photos/phrases and the top 3 choices of the day would win a prize!

For the prizes we have:

-Steam activation keys (Beta for now but changes to full when the game is out)


-Pontius mini-figurine

Now lets get cracking and brainstorming ideas before the holiday season starts and you are too busy buying Christmas presents! :)

"Take a Picture of yourself casting a fireball"

"Take a picture of yourself failing to create a fireball"

"Design an Enemy"

"Design a hero"

"What is the best excuse for getting out of going on an adventure"

"Do you like Jam?"

"Create the name of a new Spell"

"Solve this Internet riddle which Zoya has set up to hide her treasure" (Probably a bad one)

1. Design a Trine 2 trailer (in the spirit of "home shopping" trailer)

2. Write a [lenght here] witty dialog between the three Trine 2 characters

3. Create a backstory / future story / story for one/all of the Trine characters (e.g. what did Zoya do between Trine and Trine 2?)

4. Design a level to Trine 2 (verbally or with 3d software)

here's some ideas :)

EDIT: Oh and

5. Invent names for Amadeus' children (unless mentioned in-game)

6. Invent a Trine 2 themed christmas present / christmas tree decoration

7. For those of us who are musically talented: Write a song about Trine/Frozenbyte and perform it (optional)

8. Write a poem / haiku about Trine 2

With poems and artworks being unlockable secrets (providing that's not just for the beta), having competitions geared around thuse seems to be a nice fit (it would be sweet to see winners find their way into DLC or something like that).

If you're keen on doing less focussed competitions (such as the ones mentioned in the first post where many styles of entries are acceptable), be prepared for a really hard time judging them. Separating them out into separate competitions (eg: a cosplay competition being separate to themed fan art competition) would be easier to judge and give you two competitions instead of one.

I'd also be keen to see "community favourites" or "people's choice" as well as official winners if you guys are planning to judge the competitions yourselves.

So far as ideas go, here are a couple:

  • "The other side" - Draw/paint a Trine 2 scene as seen in the beta, a screenshot (or maybe make something up yourself), but from the opposite perspective so what is shown in-game (for example, the menu screen shows a lake or river with a castle or city walls in the background, but what would it look like if you were looking from the perspective of someone standing on the water?).

  • "Make a Trine 2 diorama" - How awesome are dioramas?

  • In the spirit of RealoFoxtrot's "design a X" ideas, a "Design a 'giant creature'" competition could be pretty cool (all of the ones seen in trailers so far have a level of interactivity, so be sure to include that)

  • "Caption this Trine 2 screenshot" - funniest caption, truest-to-character caption, most "awww" caption?

  • "Who's this?" - Identify a Trine character from an obscured image.

  • And finally, how about a "Best competition idea" competition? lol
Also, how awesome are those little Pontius figures??? Will you be doing other characters/enemies as well?

1. Miniature Amadeus' Box into Bonus stuff. lol

2. Only One Hero Mode in single and multi-play.
This doesn't mean classic mode, which players play each different hero.
in this mode, They have to play only one same hero.
for example, Only Amadeus Mode is that three players have to play only Amadeus except the other heroes, Zoya, Pontius.

3. Levitating Allies as well as Monsters.
I wanna trolling... joke. lol

4. Information Page at Main, which explains stuff appearing in the game such as Goblin, Great Snake, etc.
It can be reminded as an example, "Planescape: Toment." This has Information page about NPC.

5.a function to teach player where Experiences or Chests lies after Game Cleared(or other condition).
We know Experiences and Chests are difficult to be founded playing Trine.
This may be needed greatly.

Really good ideas,
I was thinking instead of such specific contests there just be like general entry categories like:

-Photography (Real life; dioramas, cosplay, etc.)

-Art (Painted or CGI)



-Video (Gameplay, fan made trailer, etc.)

Return to “Trine 2”
