From the Press Release:

Austrian independent developer Stillalive Studios announced that their third person fantasy action adventure, Son of Nor, received a major content update today. Available on Steam Early Access for Linux, Mac and Windows PC, Son of Nor is notable for its unique terraforming and telekinesis weapon system, which can be combined by the player to solve various puzzles and defeat enemies, allowing for a new level of creativity in gameplay. Largely taking community feedback into consideration, the newest update brings several level overworks, including close combat improvements, more sidequests, three new levels, customisation option for vanity items, Proving Grounds mode update and EPOC Emotiv support.

Check out Son of Nor on Steam Early Access.

Son of Nor is set in Noshrac, a world inhabited by a minority of human survivors that must protect the human race against ultimate extinction from an evil enemy from the past, the hostile lizard-like creatures Sarahul. Left behind by ancient Gods in a legacy of conflict, players embark on a treacherous journey learning to create offensive and defensive spells by harnessing long-forgotten magical powers: fire, wind and essence. Cornered in The Edge, the last human resort in a vast desert world, players begin with the abilities granted by the goddess Nor, telekinesis and terraforming, that help to gain access to new and mysterious powers, fight through enemy territory and solve intricate puzzles in their journey. In addition, Son of Nor ’s dynamic game world features up to four-player multiplayer via Steam Matchmaking, two-player co-op in local split screen or regular single-player mode.

November Update Features:

●      Several level overworks and community feedback integration – As per community request the abilities of the player to fight in close-combat situations has been improved so the entire combat feels more polished and smooth.
●      More Sidequests in several levels!
●      Level: Taro A – A city frozen in time by a powerful spell, haunted by lots of ghosts and interesting puzzle situations to solve.
●      Level: Taro B – Players encounter the most powerful female mage in the game “Orare”.
●      Level: Future Edge – The level is set during a big invasion of the human hometown, which players desperately try to defend. At that point players already have all the powers (wind, fire and essence) and are as powerful as they can be!
●      New Customization Option: Vanity Items (connected to collectibles) – Players can now receive decorational items that do not influence gameplay, such as bracelets, pouches, shoulder gear and the like.
●      Proving Grounds Update – Collectibles now unlock the ability to spawn enemies in the proving grounds.
●      EPOC Emotiv support available.

Stillalive studios title Son of Nor now available on Early Access

Developed by #Stillalive studios for PC, Mac and #Linux, Son of Nor ($17.99 USD) is set in Noshrac, a world inhabited by a minority of human survivors and a race of hostile creatures called Sarahul, both left behind by ancient Gods in a legacy of conflict. As a member of the last surviving humans with magical powers, the Sons of Nor defend all that’s left and battle against the Sarahul to avoid total annihilation and ultimately extinction.

As a Son of Nor, consecrated by the Goddess of the Night, it is up to you to protect the human race against total extinction. While the few remaining humans are cornered in The Edge of a vast desert world, you fight the Sarahul, an enemy from the past. On your journey you discover a labyrinth of ancient tunnels and magical, long forgotten powers that are well guarded by puzzles and traps. These mysterious structures were left behind by an unknown race thousands of years ago.

Starting with the abilities granted by your goddess Nor, telekinesis and terraforming, you will explore the world of Noshrac, gain access to new and mysterious powers, fight through enemy territory, and solve intricate puzzles.

As a Son of Nor, the World is your Weapon. Use it wisely.

Features in Early Access:

  • Progress through a large portion of the story with more to come.
  • Multiplayer debut with up to 4 players via Steam Matchmaking, or 2 players in local split screen co-op, or simply play alone.
  • Move and shape the desert using terraforming: raise or lower sand to gain tactical advantage, create barriers, trigger traps, or escape to higher ground.
  • Play your style – use telekinesis to pick up objects around you and use them as weapons or create levitating bridges.
  • Tear rocks out of canyon walls and hurl them at opponents, or use your telekinetic abilities to solve rewarding puzzles.
  • Enhance your abilities by gaining elemental powers like fire and wind to further enhance your powers. You can combine these elemental abilities to create even more powerful spells.
  • Become immersed in the world of Son of Nor: no GUI or HUD, everything is embedded naturally and intuitively in the world’s environment.
  • Includes a subtle atmospheric sound track composed specifically for Son of Nor
  • Currently available on WIN and MAC right now, but coming soon for LINUX

Stillalive Studios is a development team based in Austria and they’ve just launched their Kickstarter campaign for their debut PC, Mac and Linux title: Son of Nor . The game is a third person action game where a reptilian race known as the Sarahul are looking to take down the entirety of human civilisation. But guess what? You are mankind’s final hope, my friend.

In a desert setting, players will have a number of abilities to take down their foes and solve puzzles, too. These include telekinesis, terraforming and performing magical spells. Gamers have the option to play on their own, with three other people online, or two player local multiplayer in Son of Nor.

Stillalive are looking to raise $150,000 through the crowd-sourcing website. The studio have said that after a year of development, they are 25% of the way there, but need some more cash to finish the job. Running for the next thirty days, you can give the team some of your hard earned cash by going to their Kickstarterpage and following the instructions I’m sure you are all too familiar with at this stage.

If the team reach their goal, they anticipate a Q2 release in 2014. To get a better idea of what Son of Nor is, you can have a look at the video and screenshots, along with some concept art, below.
