Meet Game Designer and Story Writer Ricardo Valenzuela in the Latest Son of Nor Update

on May 9, 2013 2:59 PM

The main course of today’s update from stillalive studios is a video introducing one of their team members, Ricardo Valenzuela, the game designer and story writer for their current Kickstarter project Son of Nor. And as always, if you would like to contribute to this great endeavor, go here to do so.

The video gives us some background on Valenzuela: from how he grew up on videogames as a child, to how that love for games shaped his adult life and career, to how he finally broke into the industry after many failed attempts when he applied to stillalive studios for his current positions. These kinds of videos always warm my heart since they really allow the viewers and backers to connect with these studios on a personal level.

In other news, Son of Nor fever has taken hold of the Kickstarter community with some fan art (or more like fan jewelery) and a couple shout-outs from other successful Kickstarter groups, Larian Studios (Divinity: Original Sin) and Radiant Entertainment (Stonehearth). Shots of the fan jewelery and thank-you postcards for the aforementioned studios are below the update video.

Finally, starting today, stillalive studios will be hosting livestream videos on their Twitch TV account–today’s video will feature the concept artist Daniel drawing lovely concept art of one of the “Daughters of Nor.” The Twitch TV account can be found here for your viewing pleasure.
