Children of Morta in a nutshell:
  • GAMEPLAY - It's a unique mix of the action-adventure RPG, rogue-lite, and hack and slash genres. By leveling up, you develop not only individual characters but the entire family as a whole. There is no permadeath and you can change family members between dungeon runs.
  • STORY - The story takes place in a distant land but copes with themes and emotions common to all of us: Love and hope, longing and uncertainty, and the loss and sacrifice we are willing to make to save the ones we care about the most. Ultimately, it's about a family of heroes standing against the encroaching darkness.
  • DUNGEON CRAWLING - All the dungeons in the game are procedurally generated, which means their layout is different with each adventure. There are two to four levels in each dungeon, with a unique boss fight at the end. You can always get back to the previous dungeons to get extra XP or finish all the side quests.
  • CHARACTERS & SKILLS - Ranged attacks, magic spells, blocks, stuns, evasions, and passive skills - it’s all there for you to discover, unlock, and upgrade. You can choose from six different family members, each one having unique skill sets.
  • ART STYLE - A combination of hand-painted pixel art and frame-by-frame animations paired with modern lighting techniques bring the beautifully dangerous world of Children of Morta to life!
Thanks to a partnership with Merge Games, the retail edition for all platforms will be available on November 22nd. For gamers who love extra spicy limited editions, there will be PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch Signature Editions that include a pocket artbook, enamel pins, and more.
