Hello to everyone! Thank you for joining us, on our cuppa filled gaming journey.
Last week; we listened to a few tracks from a PS1 game that had players venturing round a digital world with their partner monster. If you missed it and want to check it out: Game Soundtracks We Love: Digimon World
Game of Choice
This week’s soundtrack is from a fantasy puzzle-platformer game, that has it’s story told by a narrator, in the fashion of a storybook being read: Trine 2.
In Trine 2 we find our three heroes from the first Trine game (Pontius, Armadeus and Zoya) being brought together once more by the mystical Trine. The three go on a quest to rid a kingdom of evil, but soon begin to realise; there is more going on than what they were told.

Track Name: Main Theme (Storybook Version)
Track Name: Icewarden Keep
I first played Trine 2 on the Wii U and loved it! It combines so many game elements that I enjoy and pieces them together brilliantly and fluidly – but mainly because of the Wii U’s gamepad having a touch screen (the same level of fluidity just isn’t there on other platforms).
As always, the soundtrack played a key factor in the enjoyment of the game – hearing the main theme always makes me want to play through it again. The soundtrack as a whole sounds so magical, and fits the game perfectly with the way it unfolds like a storybook – I love it! 😀
A few questions for you:
- Do you enjoy storybook elements in games?
- Are there any soundtracks that spur you to replay it’s game?
- What did you think of Trine 2’s soundtrack?
Would love to read your thoughts 😀 – Thanks for reading!
