Frozenbyte has posted a video response to Trine 3 feedback, particularly focusing on criticism of the game's length. Marketing manager Kai Tuovinen accepts responsibility for not fully explaining that the game would be shorter than its predecessors during the pre-release marketing.

"As head of marketing here, I'll have to bit the bullet," he says "and blame myself for not revealing our plans to you from the start. Overall we're very proud of the game we made, a game we finished, we enjoy, and we think is fun."

Frozenbyte's third fantasy action-platformer Trine 3 left Early Access last week, to a generally positive reception. The only major issue that players seem to have with the game is that it's fairly short.

VP Joel Kinnunen has taken to Steam to address this criticism, revealing that the game's increased development costs meant that the studio had to cut back on planned content.

Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power, the first game in Frozenbyte's fantasy puzzle series to feature fully 3D movement, has just left Steam Early Access.

That means the full campaign is now ready to go – thus far players have been only able to access the first half of the game, at which point they were dumped into a free-roam playground.

Frozenbyte has announced that its fantasy puzzle prequel Trine 3 will move out of Steam Early Access next week. The game's been available through Steam since April 21, and will be feature complete and ready to roll on August 20.

"It’s been an amazing few months for our first 3D Trine game," writes the developer, "and we’ve learned a lot in this time. On behalf of all of Frozenbyte, I’d like to thank everyone who participated and helped us with your feedback. We’ve come a long way since the start of Early Access, and we’ve been cooking up some neat changes in the past couple of months after the latest update."
