However, one day an opportunity arises that may help you wipe your bill clean for “A Small Favor”. If you succeed you’ll be granted freedom from your life as a glorified thug. The point and click adventure will comprise of puzzles, exploration, and the occasional assassination.

Son of Nor – Stillalive Studios – Innsbruck, Austria
Son of Nor is an amazing physics based third person actions game. The Sarahul Empire seeks to vanquish the flame of human existence. As a Son of Nor (one blessed by Nor, the Night Goddess) you are tasked with the protection of The Edge, the last human civilization. Using both telekinesis and a type of terraforming that allows control of the sands of Noshrac as your weapons, you’ll wage war against the Empire. Stillalive has a great amount of screen shots and video showing the game in action (should inspire confidence). If all works out, Son of Nor may be one of the best examples of “force powers” in gaming.
Help Stillalive fund their innovative dream project on Kickstarter, and watch out for additional coverage upcoming!
That’ll do for another installment of our Kickstarter Spotlight! Support crowd funding! It’s one of the best things to happen to the gaming industry in quite some time. Educate and empower yourself as a consumer, and give your money to deserving projects, instead of annual installments. See you on the flippidy flop!
