'Children of Morta' (ALL) Paws and Claws Charity DLC Raised $50k for Charity

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.

Valiant protectors of the land of Rea, the Bergsons are a beacon of hope for all of Rea’s citizens, both human and animal.

In order to protect Rea’s creatures with paws and claws -- and beaks, wings, fur, or horns -- the Bergsons’ homestead will see an entirely new section added. Of course, caring for all these animals means new responsibilities for the family members, and looking after them will add to their daily routines, but the selfless and soothing presence of your various friends could be rewarding and affect the heroes in further battles. And that’s not all -- a bunch of freshly brewed items have been added with a free treasure update available for all players! Containing new relics, consumables, and divine graces -- that could, for instance, spawn laser traps around you or protect the Bergsons with breathing fire -- there’s a little something for everyone!

On August 24th, 11 bit studios and Dead Mage launched the ‘Paws and Claws’ charity DLC for Children of Morta. All proceeds from the sale of the DLC are to be donated to Humane Society International (HSI).

Today, on the first anniversary of the game’s launch, 11 bit is immensely proud to announce that in only one week this initiative has raised more than $50,000 to help animals around the globe! From the bottom of our hearts, we thank every player for their continuous support and their contribution to this noble cause.

To celebrate the anniversary, and to help even more of our critter friends through the amazing work of HSI, 11 bit studios will also be launching a fundraising campaign on Twitch with the help of a variety of content creators that begins today and runs until Sept. 13th.
