People have been buzzing about Trine all summer. Frozenbyte came out of nowhere with Trine, an imaginative side-scrolling platformer with absolutely gorgeous visuals to match its inventive physics-based gameplay. Trine was released on the PC this past summer and is coming to PlayStation Network as a downloadable soon. As Trine's console debut nears, I started e-mailing back and forth with Frozenbyte CEO Lauri Hyvärinen about the game.

Hyvärinen and I chatted about a great many topics, from the already anticipated future of Trine to Frozenbyte's decision to split the gameplay mechanics amongst three characters.

Here's what Hyvärinen said about dividing the characters:

"Three characters has advantages (and challenges!) for story, controls and dying mechanics for example. For example, it's like having three lives before you have to go backward (to a certain extent), although with this ability we could have made Trine a bit harder than it is now. And in fact, when we were shopping Trine to publishers back in 2008, some of them actually wanted to have an all-in-one main character instead of the trio, but we stick to what we thought was best and I think ultimately we were right. Having only one character would have made co-op more boring too."
