  • Several level overworks and community feedback integration - As per community request the abilities of the player to fight in close-combat situations has been improved so the entire combat feels more polished and smooth.
  • More sidequests in several levels.
  • Level: Taro A - A city frozen in time by a powerful spell, haunted by lots of ghosts and interesting puzzle situations to solve.
  • Level: Taro B - Players encounter the most powerful female mage in the game “Orare”.
  • Level: Future Edge - The level is set during a big invasion of the human hometown, which players desperately try to defend. At that point, players already have all the powers (wind, fire and essence) and are as powerful as they can be!
  • New Customization Option: Vanity Items (connected to collectibles) - Players can now receive decorational items that do not influence gameplay, such as bracelets, pouches, shoulder gear and the like.
  • Proving Grounds Update - Collectibles now unlock the ability to spawn enemies in the proving grounds!

Community feedback cuts out the work for us these days. We're polishing and removing annoyances.

  • As you may have heard ;) we released a big content update on Steam and produced a trailer to show what's new since we first launched on Steam Early Access:

  • The past weeks was defined by polishing work. Look at Julian's list of smaller and bigger things we worked on.

  • NEW DEV DIARY SCHEDULE: We'll release a dev diary every 2 weeks from now on. We need all the resources to ship Son of Nor :)

According to our testers, our efforts to improve those little gameplay details have a big positive impact. It's rewarding seeing the improvements work!

  • More work on animations, visual effects, comfort features, spellbook, collectibles, and spell variations.

  • Indie Corner: This time we feature Team Indie, by our friends at Brightside Games. It's a puzzle platformer where current indie heros have to work together to succeed. All with their individual powers: BitTrip Runner's CommanderVideo can slide, Jitters can create platforms, Braid can manipulate time, and characters from Tiny & Big, Badland, Dustforce and others help you out! http://teamindie.brightside-games.com

  • NEW DEV DIARY SCHEDULE: Just as a reminder, we release a dev diary every 2 weeks.
