We’re happy to confirm that Shadwen will launch with a level editor!

The editor is the same one that we use ourselves, so it’s a very versatile tool! The editors allow you to edit existing levels, create whole new levels and share your creations through the Steam Workshop.
We’ve already seen some really awesome community-made levels in the Trine games, and we hope to see lots more in Shadwen! We have a team working on creating easy-to-understand tutorials that help people get started on using the editor and creating their own levels.
The editor is the same one we use and it will require Steam Workshop to download & share mods, so it will only be available for Windows and through Steam.
Since demo for mac and linux work well (aside for the pink screen on tutorial) why don’t launch the game for mac and linux together with windows version?
Or launch price will be different if you want to buy Shadwen for mac/linux and that’s a problem.
That’s absolutely great news. This will expand the games’ lifespan enormously. I hope we don’t have to wait too long before we can build and play our own levels 🙂
Today I won gog contest, so I will get a t-shirt and a copy of the game for free!
I really want to thank you!
I will buy a copy of the game for some friends because you deserve it, but I will keep the t-shirt like a treasure.
Sad to see that the editor is only available on Windows. How well will it work in Wine?
I don’t think anyone’s tried to run the editor through Wine to be honest. My guess is that it wouldn’t work very well :S
