If you haven’t been paying attention to 11 bit studios and Dead Mage’s roguelike RPG, Children of Morta, this release date trailer might help.
The once peaceful Mount Morta has been corrupted, turning into a dark, monster-infested place. One family stands together, drawing on each others’ strength to try and resist the tide of darkness. You lead this family and hopefully you can get the Bergsons to the bottom of this evil before all is lost.
A focus on story, on family and what we are willing to sacrifice for those we love lies at the heart of this roguelike and I am honestly worried that the emotions and weight of these characters and looking after them will be too much for me. Still, the Bergsons have defended Morta for generations, so they aren’t completely out of their depth here.
Get ready to hack, slash and craft your way through the dungeons of the mountain soon. Children of Morta releases on PC on September 3, with the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One versions releasing on October 15.
