“Son of Nor is clever in a way that we don't see very often in gaming, and combines innovation and polish better than most of the industry's big-name developers. It's different, and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible.”

“There’s no arguing about it, Son of Nor is an innovative game.”

“Son of Nor looks and feels absolutely stunning... I recommend it to anyone who wants to feel like they’re a member of the Avatar cast, or who simply enjoys terraforming and throwing rocks at people.”

About This Game

As a Son of Nor, consecrated by the Goddess of the Night, you are all that stands between the human race and total extinction. Only one human enclave remains in the vast desert world of Noshrac, a hidden refuge called The Edge. After 400 years of peace, humanity’s ancient enemy the Sarahul appears once more, forcing you into an adventure to save your people.

Armed with telekinesis and terraforming, the gifts granted by the goddess Nor, you will explore the world of Noshrac, fighting through enemy territory and uncovering long-forgotten secrets. On your journey you will discover mysterious structures created by an ancient race that are filled with puzzles and traps – and the key to mystical powers unlike any you’ve ever seen.

As a Son of Nor, the World is your Weapon. Use it wisely.


  • Telekinesis: Tear rocks out of canyon walls and hurl them at opponents, or use your telekinetic abilities to solve intriguing puzzles. Move and throw objects to prepare traps and use the environment to your advantage!
  • Terraforming: Raise and lower sand to bury enemies, excavate secret passages, block entrances, create barricades or reach elevated places to gain a tactical advantage. Or go haywire and bury entire buildings!
  • Elemental Magic: Unlock Wind, Fire and Essence magic to enhance your arsenal. Cast powerful spells, or enchant telekinetically controlled objects for extra deadly attacks! Combine multiple magic spells to unlock even more powerful techniques!
  • Co-op Multiplayer: Son of Nor supports four-player online co-op play as well as two-player local splitscreen co-op.
  • PvP Multiplayer: Prove who is the most powerful Son of Nor in chaotic four-player competitive multiplayer action!
  • Intriguing Storyline: Experience the full 12+ hour storyline of Son of Nor, set in a deep original universe featuring dozens of characters brought to life by professional voice actors.
  • Character Customization: Create your own male or female character and choose from a wide variety of costume pieces and decorative gear.
  • Become immersed in the world of Son of Nor: no GUI or HUD, everything is embedded naturally and intuitively in the world’s environment.
  • Proving Ground: Test your combat abilities in this playground of destructive delights!
  • Includes an original atmospheric sound track composed specifically for Son of Nor

Cutting Edge Peripheral Support: Aim telekinetic objects with your eyes with the SteelSeries Sentry eye tracker or tobii EyeX (Windows Only), or command the game with your mind with the Emotiv EPOC brain computer interface (Windows Only)!

Pre-Release Review
As a local co-op game, this is definitely worth the money. There are too few games that have local co-op in campaign mode to be picky. I played 2 hours with a friend, and it was good fun.

But, as a single player game, Son of Nor just isn't worth the time when there are so many better single player games out there.

The gameplay is dull. There's only one tactic effective against each type of enemy, and only a few different types of enemies. Telekinesis, which doesn't require mana and is available from the start, is the easiest way to kill most enemies, so there's very little reason to use the spells that cost mana.

The story is not very interesting. I feel like a lot of it was lost in translation, because there just isn't much there. It alludes to there being a lot more lore that wasn't explained. Also, I have no idea what happened in the ending - did my character save his people, or cause the destruction of the world, or was it a cliffhanger? I have no idea. It just cut to credits.

As a better alternative to Son of Nor, I recommend the game "Tiny and Big: Grandpa's Leftovers". It has similar telekinesis-style mechanics, but is MUCH more fun and it has a coherent story.

abit fiddely on the controls when playing with mouse/keyboard. a key for this... a key for that....a mouse click for this.... you get the jist. takes a while to figure the controls out in fact I changed them loads of times. the tuturioal or intro at the beginning of game doesnt teach you enough of what you need to know for instance without spoiling anything I got stuck so badly I assumed it was a bug (which there are quite a few off ) but upon deep thought I figured it out by experimenting with my powers which wasnt easy. I was able to get across the abyss in the caves (of where the antharis egg is.) by maknig a bridge with my telepathic abiltities but there was no" lesson" on how to do this at least not a CLEAR explanation on how to do it. you seldom hear your avatar speak except THIS IS THE WAY I CAME FROM!! lol

now the negatives are out of the way THIS GAME IS ONE OF THE BEST GAMES I HAVE EVER PLAYED and I must have played near 100 different games over the years.. It was long-very long and well worth the money. The story well thought out and unique with good characters and good chosen names for each of them - noldric etc. I liked the various range of paces too - sometimes the game required your quickness on the controls for instance when fighting at other times you are free to explore at your leasure. you always know what you need to do next so theres no pointless wandering (unless you WANT to freely explore). it reminded me of the "myst" and "uru" franchise (regarding mainly the scenery) but with available powers and alot of "action". Its also Like "uru" in that you can choose what your avatar will wear and receive at certain points in the game such as an arm shield , you can also choose male or female. The music is beautiful and really projects the correct atmosphere and changes pace very well when needed. compatible with EMOTIV ,OCULAS RIFT and EYE TRACKER. hope there is a son of nor 2 sometime soon.

This is one of the best games & I would have easily payed quadriple it's price if I knew in advance how awesome it truly is!

I kinda knew about this game while it was still in development but because of too many things going on with my life I forgot about it with time. Last night I accidently noticed Son of Nor on the steam home page & I almost broke my mouse while mashing the "Buy Now" button! I went through it already & I'm going to play it all over against at least one more time on my own and a few more times with different friend groups and last but definitely not least - I'll have genuinely fun experience while going through the Co-op with my girlfriend. There are so many great things about this game. First - it's developer team is one of the best ones I've seen (and I've seen a lot), so don't take this statement lightly. Rarely you'll see such activity from such a small team (when even huge ones are doing so bad), so many promises delivered & so many more to be! Second - the game is greatly innovative. I dove into the game without prior knowledge of it's gameplay, story or anything. I made sure that I know literally nothing of Son of Nor when I clicked "New Game". The mechanics are great even if a little clunky at times. The spell system is great - both in how you unlock everything & how you can use it in later playthoughs & in the multiplayer, and how the spells work. Story is great & I actually found myself digging for bonus lore, searching for collectables just so I can find more stuff & when the Bible of Nor was bestowed upon me - I was more than happy to eat it with it's covers! ^_^ About the spell variety - I can't stress out how hard for a game with completely new spell system is to make all aspects of it worth while! I found myself using absolutely everything non-stop in this game while in most others I just find what is "best" & "most efficient" & I just go with it from beginning 'till the end. Here it's not like that & credit Must be given where credit is Due! Good Job Stillalive Studios! About the pacing of the game - it's not perfect but it's really good & I saw on the forums that the developers actually changed the first 2 levels after receiving players feedback. This happens like once every millennium in the gaming industry. Again cudos to the dev team! The more I see the more I'm expecting from them but that's the thing, ain't it? We as gamers & consumers hardly expect anything of much value. We're used to be treated like consumers & we're used for big companies to milk their old cows even tho those cows are drier than the deserts in Noshrac! Also this game rewards explorers. I also found myself constantly going everywhere (except for when I really got hyped on the main story line & I just wanted to know What Happens Next!). Single Player is a Great Experience which I hope that anyone who reads this review has either experienced or will exp it! I also had the luck to try out the multiplayer with one of the developers. Even tho he lagged a bit - I had immense fun. And I must add - I'm a hardcore competitive gamer to the bone! And I played PvP without a single care of who's going to win. It was just so fun! But tbh I can't wait to find at least one person to get together with so we can practice some advanced techniques & fully optimize the potential of this great game!

From the gamer who's played it all - Buy Son of Nor!

Son Of Nor, it is an excellent game, reminds me: "The Nomad Soul" with its simple but nice graphics, but "Son of Nor" is 10 times more visually pleasing !, besides have the best gameplay in local coop!

"Who had thought? I can now use my" Telekinesis, Magic and control elements "in a game !, I am now a Son of Nor! The Power is rising in the Horizon, Skills are the future now!"

* Unique idea, versatile and Continuous Development.
* Excellent music according to the theme of the game being even comtemporanea.
* A different world, an unpredictable adventure after every update and new items!
* Excellent gameplay, constantly developing.
* Gameplay Mode: Local Coop Cooperative and Online / Multiplayer.

* None, except to those who ask that the game comes with graphics as a "game Maximized" but nothing of gameplay after they drop / disconnect your servers, as another games that die online ( No servers and No multiplayer) after some time.

Thanks to the team of "stillalive" for his great release: Son Of Nor!

Regards! (^^)


Son Of Nor, es un juego excelente, me recuerda a : "The Nomad Soul" con sus graficas sencillas pero super agradables, aunque "Son of Nor" es 10 veces mas Agradable visualmente!, ademas de esto su jugabilidad es la mejor!

"Quien lo habia pensado? Ahora puedo usar mi "Telekinesis, Magia y control de los Elementos" en un juego!, ahora soy un Hijo de Nor! The Power is rising in the Horizon, Skills are the Future Now!"

* Idea Unica, Versatil y en Continuo Desarrollo.
* Musica Excelente de acuerdo a la tematica del juego siendo aun comtemporanea.
* Un mundo diferente, una aventura impredecible tras cada actualizacion y nuevos elementos!
* Jugabilidad excelente, en constante desarrollo.
* Jugabilidad en modo: Local Cooperativo y Online Coop/Multiplayer.

*Ninguna, excepto a los que piden que el juego venga con graficas como las de un: "Juego Maximizado" pero sin nada de jugabilidad despues de que se caigan/desconecten sus servidores, como sucede como algunos juegos.

Gracias al equipo de "StillAlive"por su gran entrega: Son Of Nor!

Regards! (^^)
