    Children of Morta is pieced together in such a way that no element feels out of place, and the wonderful roguelite gameplay is backed with a deep and emotional story that kept me engrossed until the very end.

    Children of Morta is a resoundingly beautiful game that tells a compelling story of growth, forgiveness and love through a set of deep of satisfying rogue-like mechanics that only kept me invested in the gameplay but the journey of The Bergsons throughout my playtime.

    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 would be a perfectly good linear dungeon crawler; it would also be a pretty good roguelike. But it genuinely manages to strike the perfect balance between the two, offering addictive, challenging and varied gameplay, as well as strong narrative, characters and world building. Besides some difficulty issues with the two-player mode and the melee characters, it’s a pretty great game. Plus the spirit you rescue at the end of the first area looks like a giant floating vagina, so what more could you want?

    A beautifully written, composed, and visualized roguelike.

    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.

    Favorite Thing: Really fun roguelite with enough progression and story to keep me interested. It's also simple enough for novice gamers.Favorite Thing: Really fun roguelite with enough progression and story to keep me interested. It's also simple enough for novice gamers.
    Least Favorite Thing: Weak ending, story-wise. They threw out the entire reason why the Mountain King and Rea split.

    Playtime: ~ 16h

    Enjoyment: 8/10
    Recommendation: There's something to enjoy even for those of us that don't like rouge-likes.

It also has a monotone and subjectively cool sounding narrator.

    Gameplay is zelda topdown. Combat is simple and requires different tactics for different enemies, except they hit you all at once, so unlike diablo that, not only weans you into this intensity of combat this just lets any number of enemies attack you, which gets significantly worse as you progress though a level - often this is paired with having no healing . No thought appears to have attached to this at all from the looks.

    The developer I am sure will say to you as a response, well go and buy more upgrades to get stronger... This creates a massive grind fest, which over time unlocks more story which is about a family and it's dysfunction.

    The art style and the music is good, just I dont find the grindfest, mixed with the narrative and generic gameplay redeeming.
