Dear backers,

We have really biiiig news for you today! stillalive studios established a partnership with Emotiv (Emotiv.com), who develops and manufactures a brain-computer-interface(BCI). This collaboration allows us to add full support of the EPOC “mind-reader” in Son of Nor. What does that mean? If you want, you’ll be able to use your mind to controltelekinesis, terraforming and magic!! I know this sounds crazy, but we assure you: this isREAL! Watch the following video for a short demostration:

Of course you can still play the game with keyboard&mouse or gamepads only! Currently the EPOC device supports Windows and Mac.

We also added two new reward tiers to bundle the BCI with Son of Nor! Checkout our new $300 and $530 tiers:


The Sarahul Camp
The past week we worked on the next level we put into Son of Nor: the Sarahul Camp! This will be the third level in the story-mode and you’ll arrive there at night! You goal is to reach the fire-temple (visible in the background), which is located on the other side of the army camp. How you achieve that though, is completely up to you.
The fact that the reptillian Sarahul are weaker and slower at night, certainly helps ;-)


Kicking It Forward
For this great support we’ve received and all the feedback we’ve gotten, we owe a lot to the Kickstarter community! Therefore we decided to enroll “Son of Nor” at the “Kicking-It-Forward” program (Kickingitforward.org), and thus to put 5% of our future profit, back into other Kickstarter projects!

Thanks for all your support!

A fellow Indie-Developer currently has his title TinyKeep online on Kickstarter too. It features a very interesting procedural Dungeon Generator, super-cute graphics and A.I so smart that you might just decide to spare that skeletons un-life for it giving you an advanced course in dungeoneering in return. You can take a look at the Project here:

Looks interesting, but I'm not sure if it works fast enough in game. It could get frustrating when it doesn't work all the time. If anything I'd combine this with a kinect to get a true feeling of freedom from all standard PC peripherals. Epoc is a very expensive tool for a peripheral, and I'm not sure you can sell enough units. Perhaps you can offer regular ways to play the game, too (mouse/keyboard input only).

Also: crazy screen setup on your desktop ^^
