Son of Nor manipulates the desert to battle enemies, solve puzzles

Here's a new Kickstarter form a team nobody seems to have heard of, but we're all pretty excited anyway because Son of Nor looks awesome.

What really has people talking is the protagonist's special power; he can shape the desert around him using Jedi-like gestures. It looks a little like From Dust and The Force Unleashed had a wee baby and asked you to pay for it.

The single-player and co-op action adventure is set in a dynamic environment which you can shape with telekinesis, terraforming and elemental magic, and each environment has several paths depending on how you'd like to combine your skills to progress. The third-person affair is headed to Linux, Mac and PC and offers split-screen or online multiplayer.

StillAlive Studios is very proud of its original fantasy world, and aims to have little or no user interface on-screen to distract you from your exploration, combat and puzzle solving. It's also pretty keen on the music, and has a couple of awards under its belt already for its debut title.

In order to bring Son of Nor to commercial release in June 2014, StillAlive Studios is seeking $150,000. Check out the pitch video below then visit the Kickstarter campaign to browse the rewards on offer.
