    Children of Morta is an incredible roguelike title that will keep you hooked for hours on end, offering superb gameplay and presentation, as well as a surprisingly strong story.

    While Children of Morta‘s surprising flexibility — without too comprising on the challenge of its gameplay — is one to take note of, it’s Dead Mage’s ability to find harmony with so many [figurative] moving parts that’s more impressive. Don’t let the tag or implication of hollowness throw you, Children of Morta — like Dead Cells before it — is an addictive, well-orchestrated and brilliantly-devised take on the roguelike template.

    Save for the issues with RNG and the procedurally generated environments, Children of Morta delivers an exceptional experience with superior gameplay and a surprising amount of heart.

    Children of Morta is a family affair.

    A lot of love and time has gone into Children of Morta, and the level of polish and complexity across its narrative and gameplay make it one of the most interesting roguelites to date. The difficulty curve and relative brevity of its story may put some off, but Children of Morta is a beautifully crafted, polished roguelite that deserves your attention.

    But what the elevator pitch and basic description don’t convey is Children of Morta’s unique charm.

    As with most things, Children of Morta will probably get some substantive updates in the coming months, but it currently pales in comparison to other action roguelikes and won’t hold most gamers’ attention for too long.

    Children of Morta is a beautiful dungeon-crawler, with underwhelming gameplay.

Only a few hours in, and the narrator is giving Bastion a run for the money. Gameplay initially was somewhat stilted until I changed the button configuration. Team play is a fun mechanic, and I love the "Dad" buffs on John's character. It makes the tank character loveable and fun to play. Not a spoiler, but when the family's "bat cave" was revealed, it was sooooo cool.

    Loving this. It's like a little bit slower hyper-light drifter with 100% more storyline.

    My favorite game of the year! The atmosphere and the game play are breathtaking. The plot is very touching and unpredictable.

The narrators voice immerses you into the storyOne of the most beautiful pixel art games that i have played. Game length is around ten hours. The narrators voice immerses you into the story of the Bergson family. While not very long, i had a lot of fun trying out different characters with their distinct skill sets. The mini stories inside of each dungeon are a nice touch and the main hub had a cozy family atmosphere.

    If you like the dungeon crawling of Diablo and roque-lites, this is your game.

    Pretty, but boring. The gameplay is non-existant and all your skill is loot-based stats.
