If that wasn’t enough here’s how Stillalive Studios describe the game in their own words:
Cast as a Son of Nor, consecrated by the Goddess of the Night, players must protect the human race against total extinction from a sinister enemy from the past, the lizard-like Sarahul. Leaving the few remaining humans cornered in The Edge, the last human resort in a vast desert world, players embark on a treacherous journey that takes them to an ancient labyrinth that holds long-forgotten magical powers. Beginning with the abilities granted by the goddess Nor, telekinesis and terraforming, players will explore the world of Noshrac, gain access to new and mysterious powers, fight through enemy territory and solve intricate puzzles in their journey.
Featuring up to four-player multiplayer via Steam Matchmaking, two-player co-op in local split screen or regular single-player mode, Son of Nor offers unique terraforming play mechanics that allow gamers to raise and lower sand to gain a tactical advantage against enemies, create barriers, trigger traps or even escape to higher ground. Players can use telekinesis to pick up surrounding objects, using them as weapons or levitating them to create bridges and steps. Through your journey you’ll improve your abilities to harness elemental powers such as fire, wind and essence. Combine these elemental powers to create new offensive and defensive spells.
Sounds like it’s worth a look to me, anyone else checking this out?
