About Children of Morta

About this game

IT RUNS IN THE FAMILY.

Children of Morta sets its story in a distant land but copes with themes closer to our daily lives than one would expect. It is a story of simple emotions we all know so well and values more than sometimes we dare to admit: love and hope, longing and uncertainty, and ultimately loss and sacrifice we are willing to make to save the ones we care the most for.

Embark on the adventure of an extraordinary family of heroes. With the Corruption spreading through the land, guardians of the Mountain Morta have to stand up against the ancient evil. But... it's not a story about saving the universe. It’s a story about a valiant family standing together while the world around them is being devoured by darkness.

FEATURES:

FAMILY TIES

The Bergson family is prepped and ready for the forthcoming fray. Discover and experience each character’s unique fighting style along with their personalities. Witness their emotions run high as they struggle to help one another return peace to the land. Witness the growth of a family.

INHERITED TALENTS

Each family member has a different background and expertise, shaping them into a diverse group of Guardians. Some prefer close combat, crushing their enemies with magnificent hammers or slashing away with a keen sword or dagger. Others perform at a distance with skilful bow use or extraordinary spells. Discover the distinct playstyle of each member and select the one that suits you!

ANCESTRAL WISDOM

Grandma Margaret and Uncle Ben - the seer and blacksmith of the family. Armed with knowledge passed down through generations of Bergson's, they are here to assist you. You can rely on their ancient knowledge about the way of Rea, the spirit of Morta land. Use their skills to upgrade the family's gear and boost main attributes. Be sure to take advantage of your ancestor’s wisdom!

MYSTICAL MOUNTAIN

To the villagers and residents of Rea, the mountain is everything. Full of history, legends and magic, it is a symbol and source of life, health, and prosperity. Delve into the mountain itself - unravel the mysteries inside. Unearth what Corruption is and why it has come to this seemingly peaceful place.

EVER-CHANGING WORLD

The world is touched by Corruption - constantly changing. Every forest, dungeon, or temple you explore and skirmish through will never be the same, guaranteeing a unique experience in each play session.

UNIQUE ART STYLE

A combination of hand-painted pixel art and frame-by-frame animations partnered with modern lighting techniques come to life to create the beautifully dangerous world of Children of Morta!

Pretty fun little roguelite, really nice artstyle and concept, but the action can be a little clunky. Can be found in bundles sometimes, so it may be worth getting it in one of those if you can.

Played originally on GamePass, engaging enough to have me coming back to play NG+ . Advantage of roster is if finding it hard to progress past a boss can switch to a better suited character for it just to get through the level, then switch back to a favoured character and level them up pretty quick in the next now unlocked world. Upgrading gold drops first helps snowball purchasing the other upgrades (like xp gain, attack), even if you can't finish the run yet while neglecting the other upgrades. Didn't feel particularly grindy either, but that's up to personal preference - roster again helps break it up.
