Game Soundtracks We Love: Trine 2

Game Soundtracks We Love: Trine 2

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.

Video: Trine 2: Director’s Cut E3 Trailer
The trailer’s track is the game’s Main theme. It has such a great sense of grandeur and wonder; perfect for getting a player excited for a grand adventure! 😀

Track Name: Main Theme (Storybook Version)
During certain segments of Trine, a storybook version of the main theme plays; it’s gentler, more mystical sounding that’s reminiscent of a music box. It retains the sense of wonder of the original, but has a whole new, lullaby feeling that works brilliantly with the narrations of the game’s story.

Track Name: Icewarden Keep
Icewarden Keep is such a beautiful track; has a gentle, magical quality that’s full of intrigue and wonder, but has drums and horns that spur the player on in their adventure. It also has wonderful segments that feel otherworldly; making it all the more magical – I love it! 😀

Final Thoughts

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!

We love to hear from you!
