Welcome to Noshrac. A harsh desert world where humankind is at the brink of extinction. You are a Son of Nor, a mage with telekinetic powers and the ability to bend the elements to your will, trained to defend the remaining humans from the onslaught of the Sarahul Empire and the perils of the desert. Solve puzzles using your telekinetic powers, venture through long forgotten temples, terraform the desert and fight to the death alongside your friends in this co-op fantasy action adventure.

Key features:

  • Terraform the sands of Noshrac to uncover secrets, overcome obstacles and create barricades.
  • Utilize telekinetic and elemental powers to solve ancient puzzles and triumph over the Sarahul threat.
  • Venture through ancient temples in search of mighty artifacts.
  • Fight alongside your friends (co-op, network/splitscreen) and find other ways to solve puzzles and thwart your enemies.

Our release on Steam Early Access is approaching and we're preparing things like crazy! You can also light up stuff and decorate a Christmas tree in multiplayer.

  • So the game development process comes into its final stretches. We do a lot of things to wrap up all lose ends. Some examples.
  • We're working on promotional material with our render artist Ruben doing new poses and new high resolution character models. See how the male character model evolved and how the female character looks. They look amazing!
  • Multiplayer now works! We had some fun in multiplayer sessions. Splitscreen also works and we'll be able to show it in one of the next dev diaries.
  • We're creating the trailer for the early access launch and Julian implemented some neat functions to be able to record cooler scenes from the game. If you have a game you want to do some videos for, plan in a lot of time and code some extra functions to make it easier for you to stage game situations. The trailer will only be about 90 seconds but we're on it already for more than a solid work week. Especially when you try to record features that are in a very unstable state still: Hello coders? Fix this please. Wait, update, try again. And then something else breaks ;)
  • More things we do to prepare for the launch is our localisation database. We use keys that then call the text in a specific language. Like in a poor man's database. This way we can translate text in different spreadsheets and just switch the file to completely switch the game to a different language.
  • We also use documents that tell us who says a line and with what emotion. This will play a role once we do voice-overs for the lines. Every bit of dialog in the game will be voice acted! Yay! For a limited amount of languages, however.
  • We are polishing cutscenes and level design. We added ivy flowers that help players spot interesting things.
  • Get into the discussion and join our forum: forum.sonofnor.com

Hello! Currently we have a demo in our store ( Sonofnor.com ) which revolves around trying out the different gameplay mechanics, this demo has a cost since it was a Kickstarter backer exclusive item.

Also, we are aiming to go for a rather conventional and known key configuration, but we have opened up the possibility to set your own key configuration in the case you want to :)

Before people bash the fact it's a paid demo, consider that it was originally meant for people who supported the development of the game, why should the rest of us get it for free right?

Great progress on level design.
About telekinesis directly on ennemies, i think it gives too much power to the hero.
When ennemies are flying when hero make telekinesis on them, you should change their animations, as they are still playing a walking animation in the air.
About vehicle, you should instead create special gameplay zones, made for it like vast plains surrounded by rocks, or big circuit with dangers like lava, pifalls, falling/rolling rocks to avoid.Or use vehicle to travel between each map you enter why not.
Keep up the work.
