In the beginning gods created lizard-man and man. Then lizard-man learned magic, and things pretty much go downhill from there in Son of Nor.
Today I'm playing a bunch of new Steam releases for your viewing pleasure, foremost among them a first/third-person survival game based on Atari arcade classic Asteroids. Yeah, the one with the little triangle ship. No, I don't get it either. Watch below.
Bayonetta creator Platinum is making an Avatar: The Legend of Korra action game, which is crazy exciting if you're an Avatar nut like me. But why wait to bend the elements when you can just start flinging around earth, wind, and fire (not the band) right now? Quoth Son of Nor, which is now on Steam: "Why indeed?"
Buttons, controllers, keyboards, motion controls? Been there, done that. Mind-controlled games, people—or more specifically, games controlled by brain activity—are something else.
Son of Nor is a game we took a look at last year, and while its mechanics - you can control the elements and move the ground itself - were promising, it was also, well, a bit ugly.
Time to check in on Son of Nor, an intriguing little PC game that's basically doing what Avatar (the cartoon) did only without the license. Seems the team have made quite a bit of progress since we last saw the game.
While it's still very early in development - hence the rough edges - there's still a ton of promise to be found in Stillalive Studio's Son of Nor.
