'Children of Morta' (ALL) Delayed Until 2019 For Simultanious Release - Screens

by Rainier on Dec. 13, 2018 @ 6:35 a.m. PST

Children of Morta is a story-driven hack-and-slash roguelike game that involves players 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.


Dead Mage and 11 bit studios have collectively decided to postpone Children of Morta to 2019.

“Having a solid amount of feedback after shows like PAX Prime, and knowing exactly the goal we need to reach, we have decided to move the release date of Children of Morta, on all platforms, to 2019”, says Producer, Marek Ziemak. “There is huge potential for this gem and we know how to fulfill it, so some things are already put in motion. I strongly believe in Mr. Miyamoto’s words about delaying a game to make sure it’s brilliant when it releases and nothing less. Also, and I believe this is important from the gaming community’s perspective, we are now developing Children of Morta for all four major platforms and there will be a simultaneous launch on all of them - Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC.”

The biggest and most time-consuming change is Children of Morta’s growth. The game is increasing significantly in size, as each of the three biomes the player can visit in the game will now have more levels and they’re larger overall. Another addition we’ve made is mini-bosses awaiting at the end of each level. The storyline praised in the previews is going to be written with a bolder pen, making the game’s world more strongly tied to the plot. All in all, there’s more work ahead for the devs but it’s for the good of the game.

Key Features:

  • 6 Playable Characters: John, Mark, Linda, Joey, Kevin, and Lucy are all prepped and ready for the forthcoming fray. Discover each family member’s unique fighting style and delve into their personalities and past in their own personal quests.
  • Procedurally Generated World: Every forest, dungeon, or temple you explore and skirmish through is procedurally to guarantee a unique experience every play through.
  • Mountain of Mystery: Delve into the mountain and discover the mystical world of Morta. Unearth why the Corruption has come to this seemly peaceful mountain. Find lore scattered about giving glimpses into the lives of the mountain’s residents.
  • Pixel Art to A New Level: A combination of hand painted pixel art and frame by frame animations partnered with modern lighting techniques come to life to create the beautifully dangerous world of Mount Morta.

Children of Morta is scheduled for release on Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2019.
