Well, the human race is being ravaged again. As a Son of Nor, you’ve been consecrated to stand between it and extinction. And you’ll have some snazzy weapons to help you do just that.

How about terraforming, telekinesis and mystical powers unlike anything ever seen before? In fact, the entire world will be your weapon.

But wait….there’s more. stillalive has partnered with cutting-edge device manufacturers to make Son of Nor gameplay even more amazing.

With the eye-tracking technology of Tobii EyeX and SteelSeries Sentry, telekinetic powers can be aimed at enemies just by looking at them. The brain-computer interface of The Emotiv EPOC lets players trigger abilities by thinking about them. Then there’s the Oculus Rift VR Headset, which will immerse players in full stereoscopic 3D environments.

Of course, these peripherals are meant only to enhance gameplay. Son of Nor is playable without any of them. But just imagine how cool it would be to pick up a rock by just thinking about it.

Julian Mautner, CEO and Lead Developer of stillalive studios: “I am thrilled about the launch of Son of Nor. It has been a labor of love for stillalive studios for several years and we’re very excited to finally share it with the gaming community.”

Son of Nor supports single player, 4-player online co-op and two-player local split-screen modes. Steam is offering the game for PC, Mac and Linux at a 15% discount until April 7th.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
