Children of Morta is a game that has certainly flown under my radar, available on PC, Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch this action, adventure, role playing game with rogue-like elements is developed by Dead Mage and published by 11 bit studios and it is certainly an interesting take on the genre. Children of Morta is a story driven game about an esteemed family of heroes who head out to attempt to put a stop to an impending corruption that is sure to destroy the world. You will experience a unique pixelated designed world along with flashes of beautifully crafted artwork, a deep story to keep you wanting more and a mix of RPG and rogue-like mechanics that fans of the genre will surely enjoy.
From the moment I first loaded up Children of Morta I was pleasantly surprised; I don't play many indie games so to play one as deep as this one with a fantastic story that is superbly narrated was a pleasure. The voice acting of the narrator was top notch and professional, the music score was atmospheric and inspirational, and the game play was as good as any hack and slash game out there. There were a few issues with narration cutting out before finishing but apart from that you can't go wrong with Children of Morta, it's an indie game that is up there with the best of them and it is sure to keep you busy for hours upon hours especially if you are the type of gamer that enjoys a good grind.
-> MUST BUY

Children of Morta - Released
Children of Morta is now available for PC at the usual places. The release for consoles is scheduled for the 15th of October.
Long-awaited Action RPG Children of Morta Lands on PCs Today!
Stand together with this extraordinary family of heroes
Warsaw, Poland - Sept. 3rd, 2019 — Developer Dead Mage and Publisher 11 bit studios are excited to announce that Children of Morta has launched today for PC after five years of creative development. Available now for $21.99 USD (21,99€) players can pick up the game on Steam, GOG.com, Humble Store, Green Man Gaming, and others. The console version will debut next month on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch launching on October 15th. This pixel-art painted RPG with vigorous action tells a remarkable story, not about one warrior, but a family of heroes - the Bergsons - and their bonds of love, courage, and sacrifice.
Children of Mortasets its story in a distant land but copes with themes closer to our daily lives than one would expect. It's a tale of simple emotions that we all know and value more than we sometimes dare to admit: love and hope, longing and uncertainty, and the loss and sacrifice we are willing to make to save the ones we care the most for. The rogue-lite action plays an important role in the gameplay, but Children of Morta is 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.
Children of Morta is about:
- FAMILY TIES as the Bergsons strengthen them and themselves when fighting.
- INHERITED TALENTS as each family member has different backgrounds and expertise, shaping them into a diverse group of Guardians.
- ANCESTRAL WISDOM of Grandma Margaret and Uncle Ben - the seer and blacksmith of the family. They upgrade the family's gear and boost main attributes.
- MYSTICAL MOUNTAIN as a place full of history, legends, and magic. Delve into the mountain itself and unravel the mysteries inside.
- AN EVER-CHANGING WORLD as the touch of corruption makes every forest, dungeon, or temple different each time you explore and skirmish through them.
- A UNIQUE ART STYLE that is a combination of hand-painted pixel art and frame-by-frame animations paired with modern lighting techniques.

RPGWatch @ Gamescom - Children of Morta Preview
Children of Morta is a roguelite, using pixelart graphics, where you play with members of the same family to root out the evil that plagues Mount Morta. I've had the opportunity to play this game at Gamescom and ask some questions about it.
Children of Morta is a roguelite game that tries to be different from other games in the genre. One way the developers did that is by using pixelated graphics, but they also made the game very story driven and you are playing with the members of the same family. The Bergson family has lived near and watched over the mystical Mount Morta for a long time, but recently corruption has spread in the mountain and it is up to the family to fight the corruption and get Mount Morta back to its former state. The story will take you through mount Morta all the way to the top, where the story is concluded. Along the way you will have the option to play many side quests as well.
The home of the family acts as a hub where you can upgrade items and the family skills. The developers want players to use all the playable characters in the family and switch between them. This is why they have invented the family skills, which are skills that are available to everyone in the family. These are skills that are not class specific and most of them are passive skills as well, like swiftness, armor and base attack damage. So, even if you have not taken a character with you for some time, that character will still get the family skills automatically. Each character has also its own set of active skills that are based on the class of the character.
