'Son of Nor' Kickstarter Campaign Needs Final Push

by Rainier on May 28, 2013 @ 4:34 a.m. PDT

Son of Nor is an action adventure set in a dynamic desert world that can be shaped by the player’s powers. Challenging puzzles, dynamic sand manipulations and an innovative magic system await you.

Son of Nor is a 3rd person action adventure game set in a desert world where human kind is on the brink of extinction at the hands of the Sarahul; an evil race of reptilian creatures bent on the destruction of human civilisation. Players become humanity´s last hope for survival in an epic struggle to hold back the Sarahul hordes and change the destiny of the entire planet.

Son of Nor can be played in single player mode, co-operatively with up to four players online or two player split screen on one computer. Many of the obstacles and puzzles players will come across will require teamwork to solve.

In Son of Nor, players command unique force abilities with which they must fight, solve puzzles and ultimately stay alive. These abilities include telekinesis, powerful magic spells and terraforming; manipulation of the game world itself, something that has not been seen to this extent before in a video game!

stillalive studios announced that with only 2 days until the conclusion of the Kickstarter campaign, Son of Nor, they are still going to make sure backer enjoy some exclusive content for getting behind the project, even if the Kickstarter is not a success.

The studio has been developing the game for the last 2 years without much financial backing but will endeavour to complete the game even if the Kickstarter fails to reach the $150,000 target needed; as the amount of support and positive feedback they have received from backers and the Facebook and Twitter communities has convinced them that they are excited about the game. The team will need to look to other avenues for investment and this will mean a revised frame, although the team are still very hopeful the money can be raised to allow for a successful Kickstarter campaign.

Each person who has pledged for the Kickstarter at the conclusion of the campaign will be rewarded regardless of the conclusion. If the campaign is a success and the $150k target is met backers will enjoy all of the rewards promised during the campaign, however if the campaign falls short stillalive studios still promises to offer every backer an exclusive in-game item that will not be made available to anyone else when the game is brought to market.

“We have been overwhelmed by the support and positive comments about Son of Nor we have received from backers and the community on our Facebook pages. We have had the most amazing comments and people are really excited about our game. We have over 1,500 people behind our project now on Kickstarter and have raised over $110k, so we really just want to say thank you to them.” Said Julian Mautner, CEO, stillalive studios

“We really are grateful and pleased that so many people have seen so much in our game. It has been our passion for a number of years and we are delighted by the fact so many see its amazing potential. We really do hope that in these last few days however backers, fans and friends of ours help us over the line by increasing their bid or spreading the word to friends, colleagues and family.” Mautner concluded.
