Son Of Nor
I am Tobias Mayr, programmer at stillalive|studios, and I wanted to present you our current game project:
Son Of Nor
"Son of Nor" (SON) is a 3rd person Fantasy RPG. Itís a mage-only RPG, which plays mainly in the desert and its main focus lies on being as dynamic as possible. You cannot just move objects arbitrarily around, but you can alter your environment. You can change the terrain via terraforming magic, and you can summon spells that can be combined in a very intuitive, innovative way. Itís easy to learn and simple to control, however there are so many things you can do that it can be quite difficult to master.
The game itself supports single and multiplayer modes. You can play via LAN, Internet or locally on splitscreen using controllers. There will be a variety of different play modes, from simple death-matches to cooperative invasion which can be thought of as a tower-defense-like-mode.
The first version of Son of Nor is going to be released around Q4 2012 supporting both the single and multiplayer arena modes described above. Afterwards an addon to the game is planned, which will add a singleplayer and coop-storyline. The story itself and the entire universe of SON are mostly done already.

Thanks for the preview I enjoyed it. The narration was pleasant and the idea of a non hub game is attractive. I am sure there are many mage fanatics that will love your game.
May the force be with your team

Very awesome, love the dynamicness and always loved magic based games. This game has a lot of great potential. Are you guys looking for help at all?
It reminds me of some of the magic casting of Eternal Darkness, I love being able to change and enhance spells.
