Dear Backers!

We come to you with a very cool opportunity! :-) As you know Son of Nor supports the tobii EyeX eye tracker device natively and it really adds a lot to the experience! Imagine just looking at where you want your actions to happen, and they just do! Look at a rock and pick it up, shoot it where you are looking and terraform with the power of your gaze!

We told some youtubers to give it a try and they were amazed:
 
In the past months we've been in contact with tobii to provide you with a really tempting offer. If you ever toyed with the idea of getting an eye-tracker, now is the time! Using the following link, you get 30% off the normal price!

Coupon Code: Sonofnor

Have fun and thanks for your ongoing support!

We're shipping physical rewards!

Hello everybody. We're having a great and busy summer and we're super happy to announce that we started to send out our physical rewards! All those boxes and collector's editions are already or will be soon on their way to your doorsteps!

For us this is a historical point as we're nearing completion of our Kickstarter deliverables. We are very proud and happy of what we achieved. And remember that even if you already played through Son of Nor and are now getting a box that goes along with it: YOU helped us kickstart not only the game, but our company! This game box will hopefully be considered a real collectible some years down the road :)

So, where's the future taking us?

To Gamescom & Beyond!

Our immediate future will take us to gamescom in Cologne from August 5th to August 9th. Meet us in hall 10.1 at the Indie Arena Megabooth! Play some Son of Nor, test the Tobii eye-tracker, have a chat! Here's a map how to find the Megabooth.

Son of Nor is out for about 1.5 months now. We're working tirelessly on physical rewards and we already made several updates to the game based on player's feedback. We released the Son of Nor soundtrack by Mike Skalandunas. There were also great press articles talking about Son of Nor! Let's get to the updates :)

Physical Rewards!

We're tirelessly working on the physical rewards for all you backers that love to have something solid in your hands. T-Shirts, collector's editions, amulets of Nor. Stay tuned for some more updates soon. As a sneak peek, let me just show you the collector's edition box! Isn't this a beauty? :)

Son of Nor v1.0.81

Since the release we did lots of changes to Son of Nor! We improved performance in many areas, squashed telekinesis bugs, improved gameplay in many levels and completely overhauled the first tutorial level. Find the full changelog on the Son of Nor menu screen in the lower left! Or read more about it on the Steam page.

Soundtrack Out Now

For all those who backed the soundtrack edition, we released the full Son of Nor soundtrack, composed and produced by Mike Skalandunas. It's truly a great piece of work and I'm finding myself constantly listening to it while working. You can find the soundtrack either on your Humble Store page or it should also be available in your Steam library! Just click on the "Music" filter in the Steam client's search bar.

RECOMMENDATION: PvP Sandbox MMO "Das Tal" on Kickstarter!

Our German colleagues from Fairytale Distillery launched their Kickstarter campaign for Das Tal. It's a new approach to PvP games with a stunning combination of gameplay elements. We're extremely excited about this project and backed it ourselves. If you're curious and terms like sandbox, PvP, MMO distilled into ONE game sound awesome, check out their campaign now!

Press Quotes

There are some very cool reviews about Son of Nor from indie sites that get what indie games are all about. Some excerpts? Here we go!

  • "If you think levitating a boulder, lighting it ablaze, and hurling it at your enemies à la Jedi Force Push sounds awesome, you’re right." 9 out of 10 by Infinite Indie
  • "All in all, Son of Nor looks and feels absolutely stunning [...] I recommend it to anyone who wants to feel like they’re a member of the Avatar cast, or who simply enjoys terraforming and throwing rocks at people." 94 out of 100 by Gamer's Haven
  • "Manipulating sand...is definitely one of the coolest things I’ve seen in a video game in a while" 9 out of 10 by ThoseGamers
  • "If you want a game filled with a mix of puzzles and combat that leans more towards the former, then you're right on the money." 7 out of 10 by Hooked Gamers
  • "the game is a great deal of fun and multiplayer is a sheer joy" 7 out of 10 by Bago Games

We're also proud that our use of peripherals has some very positive resonance, too! UK site ExpertReviews says that Son of Nor's implementation of the Tobii eye-tracker is a lot more elegant than AAA title Assassin's Creed Rogue's!

On the second page of that review it says "Assassin's Creed Rogue came to use the technology after the game's producer saw it being demonstrated at CES earlier this year and bought the development kit almost straight away." Since Son of Nor to our knowledge was the ONLY game exhibited at the Tobii booth using the tech, it's likely Son of Nor inspired the producer of Assassin's Creed Rogue! Awesome!

Thank you everybody. Stay tuned for our upcoming updates!
