Trine 2 half-off, Hardcore Mode out

Another weekend sale to take advantage of; Frozenbyte has cut the price of Trine 2 by 50 percent on Steam.

To make taking the plunge even sweeter, the developer has released a fresh patch that adds a new Hardcore Mode and “several other improvements.” Just one of said improvements is described though: the “self-levitation” trick can now be disabled.

“The Hardcore Mode is our thanks to our most hardcore fans, and a throwback to the good old days,” Frozenbyte CEO Lauri Hyvärinen says.

“This is for the fans who thought the Tower of Sarek level in the first game was just right in its pre-patches state, for those who really want an extra challenge from the game. The Hardcore Mode adds a big value to replayability, especially in online and offline co-op, and really means you have to work together or face game over.”

The sale lasts until Monday, 10 AM PST. It applies to the Mac App Store as well.
