Available on Steam Early Access for PC, Mac and Linux, 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 side quests, three new levels, customization option for vanity items, Proving Grounds mode update and EPOC Emotiv support.
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.
