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.

  • 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!

Son of Nor reviews and comments

I would have liked to have written something More Detailed about Son of Nor. Unfortunately, the Prologue is the only thing I've seen from the Game so far. Any Attempt to Start inevitably led to the Program Crash ... I don't like to write badly about Games, or I'm reluctant to express myself negatively because Tastes are just different. But when I spend money on a Product, I at least expect it to be usable. – > In this Case, not given. Should that change, I'm willing to drop the bad Rating. Until then, I declare the Game unrecommended.

I got this game because it promised puzzles and dungeons and I'm loving it! I'm a big Myst series fan and really liked the puzzles and the hunt for mysterious hints. Son of Nor is an action game, though, so it's of course a different experience. Nevertheless I enjoyed the puzzles in the dungeons a lot and all that Myst feeling came up again! The action parts of the game were demanding. As I said, I'm more of a Myst style gamer. But my son (8 years old) loved to play the action parts for me. We're a good team and I'm happy the developers didn't include gory animations or blood. There's no blood anywhere! So we both can enjoy the game. He plays through the fights and I solve the puzzles. A great experience overall :)

Early Access Review Finally a Game that is not a Copy of a Copy. Finally a Game with a new Concept. Big Compliment to the Developers! I was passionate about Son Of Nor from The Start. Especially from the Skills you possess and with which you have to solve different Puzzles in order to get further. The Mixture of Thinking and Action has been great, in my Opinion. I also think it's great that the Player is allowed to witness the Development Process of the Game and always look forward to new Updates. --UPDATE--I think the Game has been absolutely super successful. Now you have put the Crown on the Whole thing. The many small Improvements and the Voice Overs perfect the Game. It's now even more Fun to find and Discover new Ways and opportunities. Great Work! Keep it up!

A big Thank you to the Developers. I put you on Kickstarter at The time and I'm still thrilled with how great you Communicated with the Backers. So Thumbs up. Now to the Game itself: As other Reviewers have already written here, the Game is really something else and stands out from the Crowd. The Star of the Game are really the Skills you get as the Main Character, because the Story becomes beside the point although it is really interesting. Multiplayer also makes you really Happy when you have some Friends to play with (you can gamble up to four at the Same time in the Co-op). What I also particularly like are the Puzzles in the Levels, which actually always require a Combination of skills, such as Terraforming and Telekinesis. There are already a few Cracknuts. If you would also like to try the Oculus with it, it is certainly horny.
