It’s alien hunting season again! Thanks to all the positive feedback on Steam Trading Cards from our other games, we’ve now added them to Shadowgrounds Survivor as well, and this means that all of our games now have trading cards. The Survivor cards look amazing and feature some unseen new art, so now’s a good time to restart, re-install or get the game and see which cards you’ll get. Let us know what you think! -Kai

Here at Frozenbyte we’ve been secretly working on something which many of you might find interesting: a Trine Announcer pack for Dota 2! For those of you unfamiliar with Dota 2, it’s an action-RTS game by Valve that is immensely popular right now, and for good reason. It’s a great competitive game and free to play. Many of us at the office are big fans of Dota 2 and the Trine Announcer pack is something we’ve been really excited about. In a nutshell, announcer packs in Dota 2 are voiceovers for the default voice that you hear […]
I was reading our forums and stumbled upon this thread, and it got me thinking… We haven’t posted any new screenshots, gameplay videos or basically anything Splot-related for a long long time now. The reason for this is that the gameplay and graphics have changed a lot during the development, and we didn’t want to post anything that wouldn’t be making it to the actual game. However, this approach is not fair on everyone who’s been waiting patiently for the game to get released, especially those of you who bought it from the Humble Bundle. So here’s a few new […]
We had a blast at this year’s DigiExpo! We were stationed at the PlayStation area and had a few levels of Trine 2: Complete Story playable. The PlayStation team was really nice and played our trailer on their big screen! It was a positive surprise that many people were very interested in the PS4’s new controller and the touchpad controls in Trine 2: Complete Story. We were also glad that people enjoyed the artbooks we handed out and that there were so many visitors at the event: 30,000 people on Saturday alone! On Friday and Sunday we also got the […]
We’ve had people asking for the DRM-free version of Trine 2: Complete Story for a while now, and for a short period it was available through the Humble Indie Bundle 9. Now we’ve added the PC, Mac and Linux DRM-free versions to our Humble Store offering! On another topic, the success of our Trine 2 Steam Trading Cards lead us to make some for the original Trine as well. If you’re unfamiliar with Steam trading cards, simply put they are collectible digital cards which you can use on Steam to craft yourself different badges, get backgrounds for your Steam profile […]
The Frozenbyte website has undergone a slight visual remake and we are happy to have the new site live and breathing! 🙂 The old site was feeling a bit outdated, so we started working on a more sleek and simplified look. Also, we wanted the new site to be mobile device friendly. The old website: The new site has been in the works since early this year and was made to be as dynamic as possible, which makes it very easy for us to update the website and create new content, like this blog post you’re reading!
