In the harsh desert world of Noshrac where extinction threatens all of humanity, a young man born with telekinetic powers and carrying a knack for controlling the elements of nature is tasked with defending what’s left of his race. This is Son of Nor.
Austrian developer stillalive Studios is more than super excited to share this single player and co-op fantasy action-adventure title which will be one of the first games that officially supports its upcoming eye-tracking sensor bar! Thanks to Tobii Tech by Steelseries Sentry, players can aim their telekinesis powers at objects and enemies using only their gaze. With this eye-tracking technology, there’s no longer a need for an aiming reticule or manually moving the mouse miles to hover over targets. That’s not all! Read on about the other two devices Son of Nor will support to enhance gameplay.
By employing the use of Emotiv EPOC brain computer interface, players can trigger in-game abilities with a mere thought! Yes, this really does exist. In reality, people unable to move their arms and legs are able to use computers or navigate the streets sitting in their wheelchair with their thoughts. Why not apply this creativity to games as well? Train the device with thinking patterns and then cast spells and lift rocks only with the power of the mind.
Lastly, as the main character players can fully immerse themselves in the glorious world of Noshrac with none other than the Oculus Rift VR headset in full stereoscopic 3D! Through the marvels of VR, see the alien landscape with a 360° view no matter where the head turns. Expect to solve puzzles, explore abandoned temples, terraform the desert and engage in fierce battles alone or with friends.
Truly, what more can a gamer ask for? Holodecks? Well, they’ve yet to come.
Until then, take advantage of the opportune time given to enjoy Son of Nor.
