Children of Morta is a story-driven hack‘n slash roguelike game which will involve you in the adventures of the Bergson family.

The Bergson family has watched over Mount Morta for generations as the guardians of the mystical mountain. They now face their most dangerous trial as a family. Corruption has spread, morphing the once peaceful mountain into a violent and monster infested nightmare.

An emotional roguelike with gorgeous pixel-art, Children of Morta combines a powerful narrative of familial ties with intense hack-and-slash gameplay in an ever-changing world. Choose the best character for your playstyle, craft new items for your adventure, and fight to restore peace to the land.

Experience what it means to be in a family of heroes. Take part in their journey, their struggles, and their victories! Witness a love for eachother unmatched by even the gods themselves. Fight through hordes of monsters unimaginable as you explore a mountain constantly in flux. Gorgeous and breathtaking procedurally generated dungeons guarantee a unique experience every time you leave the safety of the Bergson’s house in pursuit of the truth behind the Corruption.

Children of Morta is the latest title to be welcomed by 11 bit studios' publishing arm. Dedicated to supporting their fellow indie developers, 11 bit studios' publishing lineup includes such titles as Beat Cop, Tower 57, Moonlighter, and their latest in-house project, Frostpunk.
