About Mortal Shell

About this game

Mortal Shell is a deep action-RPG that tests your sanity and resilience in a shattered world. As the remains of humanity wither and rot, zealous foes fester in the ruins. They spare no mercy, with survival demanding superior awareness, precision and instincts. Track down hidden sanctums of devout followers and discover your true purpose.

The dead litter this tattered landscape, but not all are without hope. The lost remains of defeated warriors are yours to discover. Awaken these Mortal Shells, occupy their bodies and significantly open your understanding to diverse masteries of combat.

Your path is guarded by desperate adversaries, devoted to inscrutable gods. Behold creatures both pitiable and grotesque, but do not let fear halt your journey. Muster your courage and face them down.

Combat is strategic and deliberate. You must commit your sword only when an opportunity opens. Calculate your parries to unleash devastating counterblows. Temporarily entomb your Mortal Shell in stone to block attacks, or play aggressive and use your stone-form to add brutal weight to your own sword swings.

Critic Reviews

70 / 100
"My grievances with Mortal Shell aren't tied to the game's difficulty. That's a feature, not a bug. We're meant to gnash our teeth, to wail in misery at the washed out skies....
70 / 100
"Mortal Shell is an excellent entry in the Souls-like space with some fantastic ideas around character progression and combat, but is unfortunately let down by a health system...
85 / 100
"Mortal Shell shines brightly as an example of the Souls formula done well. Anyone who is a fan of the challenging gameplay the genre is known for will be happy with this title."

It's amazing, my first soulslike and it's really worth it. Cool mechanics, and parrying is great.

Mini Dark Souls hits the sweet RPG spot

Staff Review
If you like Dark Souls, chances are you'll enjoy Mortal Shell. This slightly more condensed Indie world in which you battle many a foe will ignite the embers of your hardcore RPG heart, testing your skills against agile and brutal beasts. You'll possess fallen warriors and take on their stature and skills, finding the right 'Shell' for your playstyle for durability, stamina and resolve. It might not be as big as the AAA Dark Souls entries, but you'll still get the 'learn-evolve-succeed' type gameplay that many love, and a few loathe...

I just bought this game three hours ago and I haven't even started it yet, It would make sense if they gave me a few days to actually launch the game before they asked for a review, OK, i TRIED TO PLAY, PRETTY MUCH YOU WALK AROUND IN A FOG AND A GUY BEATS THE SH*T OUT OF YOU

If you prefer Darks Souls-esque games, this is for you. I didn't realize it was until the tutorial started. Definitely not my cup of tea.

Mortal shell is like dark souls, in that it is highly difficult. There's far less to it, and far less choice to work with. There's a few "shells" which are basically just characters, and weapons. You upgrade shells toward whatever they're best at (tank, speed, all-rounder, etc). Good concept. Unfortunately, the game suffered in that many aspects seemed unpolished, despite being a fairly small game. The shells didn't feel like they had any benefit besides one having a lot of health. The controls were non-responsive, and the game frequently didn't load in enemies until after they began attacking. Major areas were also completely covered in fog that makes seeing enemies and reacting to them nearly impossible. Overall, there just isn't enough in the game to make it feel like it's worth suffering through.

The small development team did a great job paying homage to Souls games while carving their own unique path with a small experience. It feels a bit shorter than the high-quality visuals and gritty sound design would imply, but you can see the seams as you get closer to the end. For as long as it sticks around, it feels like a welcome challenge with a much harder start than finale.
