    Children of Morta is an incredible roguelike title that will keep you hooked for hours on end, offering superb gameplay and presentation, as well as a surprisingly strong story.

    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.

    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?

    With a very solid gameplay, the ability to play coop with up to 4 players and pretty nice pixel art visuals, Children of Morta is a very good rogue-like that should appeal to every gamer.

    If you like roguelike games this is pretty great. there is enough variety in gameplay and story/characters were better than expected. Enemies can be stupid sometimes though.

    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.

    Excellent game. Only a few hours in, and the narrator is giving Bastion a run for the money. Gameplay initially was somewhat stilted until IExcellent game. Only a few hours in, and the narrator is giving Bastion a run for the money. Gameplay initially was somewhat stilted until I changed the button configuration. Team play is a fun mechanic, and I love the "Dad" buffs on John's character. It makes the tank character loveable and fun to play. Not a spoiler, but when the family's "bat cave" was revealed, it was sooooo cool.

    Loving this. It's like a little bit slower hyper-light drifter with 100% more storyline.

    Children of Morta is a beautiful dungeon-crawler, with underwhelming gameplay.

    You can't be serious with this game. The graphics alone are reason enough to abort pretty quickly.
