a new Configure Controls menu for gamepads and keyboard 

customizations, and a bunch of new Steam Achievements.

"We can't wait to see how the multiplayer community responds to Trine 

2: Goblin Menace and all the new skills that it brings! The new skills 

also work in the original Trine 2, and breathe new life into the older 

levels and allow many new solutions. I'm very excited to see how 

players use the new skills!" said Lauri Hyvarinen, CEO of Frozenbyte.
