This Will Blow Your Mind: Son of Nor Makes Telekinesis a Reality

Pioneering videogame enables players to control on screen action using the power of their mind! Integration of thought controlled headwear means players can use telekinesis, terraforming and magic powers with brain waves alone.

stillalive studios, creators of upcoming game Son of Nor today announced a groundbreaking partnership with the makers of Emotiv EPOC – a revolutionary personal interface for human computer interaction; a Brain Computer Interface (BCI). The partnership will allow players to control character actions, such as telekinesis, terraforming and magic with the power of their minds.

Son of Nor, which has recently launched on Kickstarter ( to raise $150k to fund the completion of the games development, is the brainchild of Julian Mautner, CEO of stillalive studio, and has been in production of over two years with developers from all over the globe investing their time and expertise.

The game is set in a desert world and sees players take on the role of the powerful mages fighting to pull back humanity from the brink of extinction at the hands of the Sarahul; an evil race of reptilian creatures bent on the destruction of human civilisation.

Players command unique force and magic abilities with which they must use to fight, solve puzzles and ultimately stay alive. These abilities include telekinesis, powerful magic spells and terraforming; manipulation of the game world itself.


“We have been tirelessly working on the game, funded largely by our own savings, for quite some time now and would love to see our Kickstarter succeed so that we can finish and bring it to market soon.” Mautner said.

The inclusion of the EPOC controls strengthens what is already deemed an incredible groundbreaking 3rd person action adventure title and will push the boundaries of single player and multiplayer PC, Mac and Linux gaming.

The Emotiv EPOC uses a set of 14 sensors plus 2 references to tune into electric signals produced by the brain to detect the user´s thoughts, feelings and expressions in real time.


“We are so incredibly excited to have partnered with Emotiv to allow our players to be able to perform telekinesis, terraforming and magic with the power of thought. Our game is based around the characters having such powers within the game and now they can do it for real and fully immerse themselves by genuinely be given such abilities. It is phenomenal!” Mautner added.

Son of Nor´s game play integration with the Emotiv EPOC takes gaming to the next level. Based on the latest developments in neuro-technology, Emotiv has developed a revolutionary new personal interface for human computer interaction. The Emotiv EPOC is a high resolution, neuro-signal acquisition and processing wireless neuroheadset that allows users to experience the fantasy of having supernatural powers and controlling the world with your mind. Sons of Nor, through the magic of your mind, will be yours to command!” -Kim Du, Vice President of Emotiv
