    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.

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

Non si tratta di un titolo dalla difficoltà impossibile, ma che appunto sfrutta una struttura di gioco rodata, contornata da un comparto narrativo apprezzabile. Il videogioco di Dead Mage non sarà il primo della classe, ma sicuramente è uno studente diligente che non deluderà “i palati più onnivori”, soprattutto se si considera che il mese prossimo uscirà anche su console.

It's a little generic a tale for my tastes, and - just as with bastion - I find the narrator is a welcome addition, but it just cements the thoroughly underwhelming and generic story. Not a homerun, but not a trainwreck either. The gameplay itself is pretty... mediocre for a roguelite, but fitting. Enemy design could really use a bit more diversity, but alright. What really makes me rate this game only medium, however, is that it's fairly short and, unlike most roguelike/lites has little to no replayability. I also want to add that I found the first boss to be more of a challenge than anything else the game threw at me; meaning it is pretty easy as well - but that's alright.

    I don't want to use the word "overrated" here, but there are so so so many games with great narrative and well-written stories and it frustrates me that something like this gets lifted into the "BRILLIANT STORY" category without lifting a finger, just because it has a narrative forced upon you instead of giving players clues to read between the lines.
