'Son of Nor' Kickstarter Campaign Successful

by Rainier on May 31, 2013 @ 4:11 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 today continued celebrations after its Kickstarter campaign, to raise $150k to fund the completion of its debut 3rd person action adventure PC/Mac/Linux title; Son of Nor, was a success, making $151,175 at its close yesterday.

The team are now putting all efforts into the completion of the highly anticipated game and have announced its launch onto Steam Greenlight and call for support and people's votes on the platform.

"We are thrilled, delighted and very grateful for the support we have received in making our Kickstarter a success. The team have been overwhelmed by the positive comments and the amount of people that have come out to back our final stages of development for Son of Nor."  Said Julian Mautner, CEO, stillalive studios. "We have Son of Nor live on Steam Greenlight now and we are hopeful those who have got behind us on Kickstarter, as well as Steam users and other gamers, will support us and vote here too."

During the month long crowd-funding project the studio announced a number of exciting partnerships that will allow players to use integrated hardware such as the Emotiv EPOC; a revolutionary personal interface for human computer interaction, a so called Brain Computer Interface (BCI); the partnership will allow players to control character actions, such as telekinesis, terraforming and magic with the power of their minds and Oculus Rift; that will allow players to immerse themselves in the lore and adventure of Son of Nor deeper than ever before by using this hugely exciting virtual reality device in game.
