After nine months in Steam Early Access, the full version of Still Alive Studios' action-adventure game, Son of Nor, is set to release tomorrow. But in addition to its polished mechanics, the indie studio is also adding in support for a number of high-tech peripherals, including the Oculus Rift VR headset. Today, a new trailer details some of their applications.
Oculus Rift will offer a virtual glimpse into the dystopian desert world of Noshrac, with full stereoscopic 3D allowing users to fully immerse themselves. The game is also set to support the Emotiv EPOC headset, the device that interfaces with the human brain. Using the EPOC, players can set certain brainwaves to activate certain attacks and magic spells. Finally, Tobii Eye X tech will work with a user's eyes to allow objects to be manipulated with the human gaze, while also targeting enemies with just a stare.
For those unfamiliar with Son of Nor, the game puts players in the role of one of the last humans, granted powerful abilities by the Goddess of the Night. Players will explore the world of Noshrac, combating enemies with powerful magic and telekinesis that allows them to make the very world their weapon by manipulating surfaces themselves.
