Trine 2 box

Postby spectatorx » Thu Mar 21, 2013 8:10 pm

Today i was at mall and went into part with games and i was surprised when on shelf i've spotted Trine 2 box.

Took a little bit closer on package and in description was: "contains Trine 2, Trine 2 Goblin Menace and Trine (the first) to download." I've felt a bit disgusted when spotted on box also logo of ubisoft - why it is in there? I thought trine series and frozenbyte are not related in any way with ubisoft.

I'm really surprised because i thought game was never sold in boxes and that was only reason i've bought digital from frozenbyte store.

And few more questions about what is inside:
Are these games in collector's editions or standard? Soundrtracks and artbooks included?
How installation look like? Are in there included cd-keys for desura, steam, etc?


P.S.
If you decided to release game in boxes i really would welcome collector's edition with statues of our heroes, printed on paper artbook and soundtrack on CD-audio. Is any chance for something like this? ;-)

Hello Spectatorx,

There is indeed a complete edition of Trine 2 and Goblin Menace and its rather new. About month old now :)
The retail box shouldn't have Ubisoft logo in it, it should only have Frozenbyte and Focus.

Also the box contains the following as seen in the back:
- Trine 1 for download
- Trine 2 + Goblin Menace
- Exclusive 40-page artbook
- Trine 2 Original Soundtrack
- 2 coupons for your friends to download Trine 2 and Goblin Menace at 50% off

I have no idea what keys the box contains (if any). Im going to ask this and post the answer to this thread.

I think you mean trine 2 original soundtrack ;-)

Ubisoft logo is in front of it, next to frozenbyte's and other companies logos. Will try to take a picture of it, if people in shop wouldn't mind xD

Soundtrack and artbook are pdf+mp3 or audio-cd+book? In short: digital or physical?

Anyway i think i rushed a bit with buy, if i only knew... eh...

And yes, i'm really curious about installer and keys included inside the box so i'm waiting for any info on this.

EDIT:
Ok, i do not have to take a pic of cover by myself, here it is:

With this cover game is released in Poland.

The artbook is physical and the soundtrack is located in the game dvd so its physical also.. Its just not individual CD :)
The complete collections seems to be Steam only, for both Windows and Mac so no Desura.

About the Ubisoft thing, i am asking about this but as far as i am aware we are not affiliated with them in anyway. Thank you for bringing this to our attention, we'll look into this matter :)

Thanks for so quick answer! :-)

So it looks like i really rushed with buy, that's so bad... This artbook which i could touch and smell it xD I hate so much digital buys. I need to deal with what i did :D

But anyway now i'm waiting for any answer about this ubisoft logo, i hope if you will get any info you will post it in here :-) I'm really curious what is this all about.

And one thing more... lack of linux logo may mislead some people and stop them from buy.

It seems that Ubisoft distributes Trine 2 Complete Edition in Poland, so the logo is correct :)

But its only distributing, they had nothing to do with the development of the game.

So that's how i thought :-)

It is obvious they had nothing to do with development, game is too good :D

I am a weak man... very weak... couldn't resist and bought this wonderful box with Trine 2 complete collection. It is so wonderful!

Now i can turn and smell these wonderful pages of amazing artbook, celebrate this piece of art. This brings me experience close to orgasm :D Soundtrack included on dvd is folder with mp3 files and it contains music not only from basic game but also from DLC: Goblin Menace.

I'm really proud of being owner of such beautiful thing :-)



When i was searching for Trine 2 complete collection at mall i've found two versions: this one with wonderful box which perfectly suits to game and other version: simple white box with huge white and red "ubisoft exclusive" logo. I chose the first one because it looks amazing :-) Box with more simple cover is about 40% cheaper but i'm not 100% sure if it contains exactly the same things as this more expensive one and that's another reason why i did pick up the prettier one :D This is how looks this awful simplified cover:

If someone is following this forum probably knows i already bought the game before, from humble bundle store/frozenbyte website, so, codes included in box are useless to me. If anyone is interested in cheaper game i can sell codes.
All codes, as far as i'm aware, are steam only.
Trine 2 Complete Collection (Trine+Trine 2+Goblin menace) = 15$
2 Codes for 50% discount on steam for Trine 2 + Goblin menace = 9$, also i can sell codes separately, 5$ each.
If anyone is interested contact me via pm or skype: spectatorx1.







P.S.
Dear frozenbyte, please, really pls, do this with trine 3 and release it in collector's edition with printed artbook, soundtrack in Audio-CD format on separate CD and with statues of our three heroes, all these contained in some cute box, really, pls, do this, i will even preorder it :D
