As you may remember, the Kotaku offices were invaded by a horde of awesome members of the Kotaku community bearing gifts. Turns out the gifts weren't just for us — Kotaku Kristmas Project leader Chuloopa actually gathered up loads of extra stuff to giveaway to Kotaku readers, and this is the first competition!
Take it away Chuloopa!
Christmas may be over for the regular folk, but thanks to the fantastically generous people at Frozenbyte games, we have FIVE copies of Trine 2 for Steam to give away as part of our Kotaku Kristmas Project!
Trine 2 is a puzzle platformer, requiring the player to use the skills of the three characters, Amadeus the wizard, Zoya the thief, and Pontius the knight, to cross each game level. As with the first game, the mystical "Trine" has bound the three characters together into one common entity, and thus the player controls only one character which can be switched to the other two at any time. Each of the characters has unique abilities: Amadeus can use magic to grab onto certain objects in the game world, and create boxes and planks to be used to get around; Zoya can strike at objects with her arrows, and grapple onto certain surfaces; and Pontius is strong in combat against foes, can bash apart walls, and deflect projectiles with his shield. A combination of these elements are necessary to complete each stage in the game's world.
