Son of Nor is an action RPG where you have 3 powers at your disposal: telekinesis, spell casting and terraforming. All powers are used in fights as well as in puzzles.
The images show "The Edge", one of mankind's last refuges after the Great War with the Sarahul Empire. You are a Son of Nor, a powerful mage who dedicates his/her life to protecting this safe haven.
I'm the producer of this project, we're 16 people of which 2 work on it full time (I'm one of them). We hope to create a unique and fun gameplay by combining all the player character's powers. This game is very early in development. We'e creating the first chapter now with beautiful hand-painted textures, a tutorial, and the core game mechanics to give players a feel of how the game is going to be.
As you can imagine, a game of this magnitude is not easy to co-ordinate and plan. Read about our journey of our different milestones and changes in strategy on our blog. We will share much more lessons learned as we go along: http://stillalive-studios.com/blog/
Don't forget to check our YouTube trailer to get an impression of the game.
We use Unity 3D as a platform to bring the game to PC, Mac and Linux.
Our 3D guys use 3DS Max, Maya, Mudbox, xNormal, Photoshop and many other tools to create their assets.
We use Logic Pro to create the sound effects that can be found in the game.
