Trine 2 has just received a major new update on Steam! The game now supports touch-based devices that run on Windows, and we’ve made a specific UI for those devices.

We think the new control scheme really brings a fresh feel to Trine 2, so anyone with a touch-based device, please check it out and give us some feedback on your experience :)

Touch controls - Wizard  Touch controls - Thief  Touch controls - Knight
