Trine 2 Beta For Linux Now Available
Finnish game developer Frozenbyte is delighted to announce the first beta release of Trine 2 for Linux, available now on the official site’s purchase page at http://www.trine2.com/buy/ . Trine 2 is the first Linux port created in-house at Frozenbyte.
The Linux version of Trine 2 includes all the features available in the game, including online co-op. Once the game moves out of the beta phase, the Linux version will also be able to play multiplayer with Mac users. A variety of recent distributions are supported, including Ubuntu 10.10/11.04/11.10, Fedora 16, OpenSUSE 12.1 and Linux Mint 12. Other distributions could work as well but may require additional library installations manually. The Linux version will also come to other distribution channels later in the year, including Desura and Gameolith.
The regular edition is priced at $14.99 and the Collector’s Edition at $24.99. The Collector’s Edition includes a digital artbook and the original soundtrack by the acclaimed composer Ari Pulkkinen.
Seems they’re cooking right along with the porting stating that it was easier than they had planned on it being.
