Corruption. Will you be able to sacrifice everything to save the ones
you care for?

had to postpone the Nintendo Switch release a bit, but in my
super-biased opinion as a producer, this was the right decision as it’s a
fantastic console for Children of Morta -- it was meant for this
handheld. And we’re already going further as I can tease that a roadmap
for 2020 is in the works and we will tell more about it soon”
, Children of Morta executive producer, Marek Ziemak.

Children of Morta in a nutshell:

    - 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.
    - 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.
    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.
    & 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
