Great work, guys! I really like the voice acting. The running animation is very sweet as well, but I did notice some clipping with the legs and the clothing (the tabard like flaps) that's a bit static. A minor thing though.

+/- a month? Whoohoo!

I've backed you guys, so I can already play but I've managed keep my promise (to myself) to wait until the final release. I'll keep a close eye on the word.

I've been tracking your progress from the very beginning (on IndieDB). Great project, great team and love the way how you communicate to us. I'm a fan and hope to see a lot more from you guys with future projects.

They were. But it was totally worth it. I just finished a first good mix of all the sounds, music and voice-over and I played the latest nightly build today to see how everything plays together. It's such a great atmosphere and the world came so much more alive with voice-over than it did before. It was a joy to play and had a great atmosphere. We can't wait to release Son of Nor once we finished all the final polishing tasks.

It was totally worth it! I hope we convince critics and that we make a decent amount of profit so we could fund our next game with equal high quality standards! Let's keep our fingers crossed :)
