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.

Post news Report article RSS Feed Son of Nor Dev Diary #20 - Touchy Crystals

We introduce the concept of magic crystals. See the difference lighting can make. And we tease our updated magic system.

Posted by ChrisPolus on Jan 27th, 2013

This week we show you clips about what lighting can do to your scenes, what's up with magic crystals (which will play a role in the game) and a preview of the updated magic system. Apparently you also get a glimpse of me doing some stupid looking moves in my studio to show animators how I think the character should move. For this, I'll seriously consider hitting Julian next time I'm in Innsbruck. *Sigh, why do I have to release the dev diaries and humiliate myself? Srly.

  • See the difference in lighting from before and after.
  • We have 1 sunlight and 2 fill lights, one from the directly opposite direction of sunlight.
  • We integrated magic crystals that'll play a role in puzzle solving and fights.
  • To specifically touch up areas we use spherical lights where needed.
  • Updated magic system to improve usability in fights.

Thanks for not telling anybody how stupid I look...
