The game will be released about a month later than expected.
Children of Morta

11 bit studios and developer Dead Mage announced today some unfortunate news. The two studios have revealed that Children of Morta for the Nintendo Switch has been delayed by about a month. This moves the originally planned release date from October 15, 2019 to November 20, 2019.

However, this delay does not impact the release of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game. These two platforms will still get the game on October 15. The studio says that they are "not willing to compromise the quality of the game or release a product to paying customers that's half-baked."

The studios released a joint statement to fans that expands upon these initial remarks.

To the players and our fans,

Spending 5 years creating a game is exhausting. Spending 5 years creating a game and then having to delay it -- that’s just brutal -- but when you’re aiming for excellence and you know it’s within your grasp, you just do it. Such is the case with Children of Morta on the Nintendo Switch. We still have a couple of kinks to work out and are pushing for quality over anything else. The community may forgive us for the delay, but forgiveness won’t come so easily if we release a game that’s not working perfectly. As delivering the best performance is our highest priority, we are simply delaying the game to November 20th to allow ourselves the time we need. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 releases are going as planned on the 15th of October.

At 11 bit studios, there is no space for compromise when it comes to quality. For players, it means a bit more of a wait. For us, a bit more hard work which we’re glad to do because, in the end, we all have the same goal -- a fantastic game.

Kind regards,
Dead Mage & 11 bit studios
Children of Morta is an action-RPG. It's already available on PC if you don't feel like waiting for any of the console versions. You do not play as any singular character in this game, but rather a whole family of heroes. You will slash through a bunch of enemies in procedurally generated dungeons, caves, and landscapes. Subsequent characters you play as inherit some of the traits of the previous character.

Here is the release trailer for the PC version of the game if you want a better look at it.

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.
