Today stillalive studios is thrilled to announce the launch of a Kickstarter campaign for its debut 3rd person action adventure PC, Mac and Linux title: ´Son of Nor´. The Kickstarter begins today with a goal of $150,000 to fund the rest of the game´s development.
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!
Julian Mautner, founder of stillalive studios said:
“We have dedicated ourselves to the development of Son of Nor and we have a game we are so proud of but now we need some extra funds to get us over the line and get our game to market.”
Christoph Polus, Producer at stillalive studios added:
“We are currently in a very exciting phase of development with the game and are really starting to see the story come to life and hope that gamers and Kickstarter community members will see what we see in our game and get behind us to get it over the finish line.”
“We have seen some amazing titles gather some tremendous support from the Kickstarter community and have seen the passion that exists there for great and innovative new games. We have all lived and breathed games our whole lives. Kickstarter will give us the opportunity to put Son of Nor out there and see if what we are offering fires the interest and support of gamers like we believe it will. Plus we want to be able to involve our supporters in the ongoing development of the game, take critique and grow and develop Son of Nor together – just like a multiplayer game!.”

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
