Children of Morta game

Children of Morta game

In ancient times, at the very edge of the world, in the lands called Rhei, there lived one family that bore the proud surname of Bergson. From time immemorial, warriors from this venerable family have become the guardians of Mount Morta, a place from where, according to legend, the Filth will spread throughout the world. Each of the Bergson was a real hero and could stand up with a weapon in his hands both for himself and for his family.

The father of the family, John, a hereditary guardian, skillfully wielded many types of weapons but preferred a shield and a sword to everything. His eldest son Mark, on the other hand, devoted his life to studying the hidden resources of the body and spirit, and went out to enemies with bare fists, smiling with a gaping mouth. Linda, John's daughter, loved to play the violin more than anything else. But in moments of danger, the bowstring of the bow became its string, and sharp arrows became its bow. The youngest son Kevin, who studied for a long time under the supervision of his father, was excellent with twin daggers, and masterfully mastered the art of sneaking up unnoticed.

His little sister Lucy studied spells from her wise grandmother Margaret, who, in addition to magic, was well versed in alchemy. There was also Uncle Ben, a master blacksmith, whose fame spread far beyond the borders of the neighborhood, and his son Joey, a hefty fellow, playfully knocking down waves of enemies with his blacksmith's hammer... The mistress of the house was by right the wife of John, the beautiful Mary. She was just once again on the dream when the Filth came.

Trying to objectively evaluate this game, you don't even know where to start, because you like everything. And the pixel graphics, drawn by hand, from which it breathes with warmth, and the plot, the action of which does not stop for a minute, but is constantly evolving, because even if one of the heroes' hp drops to zero, the magic stone, carefully created by grandmother Margaret, will transfer wounded directly into the family nest.

Randomly generated dungeons won't let you get bored for a minute and mini-quests scattered around the map add replay ability to the game. What you cannot find in the vastness of the underworld: here you will be saved by the Korovan, and a party in "Arkanoid" with a deity, and treasures, which one of the family members learned about, and watched you inform you, and then plunder the treasury together.

The fighting of the characters is very different from each other, although it will not work out constantly to farm with one hero - the Bergons also get tired and need rest, so they will have to change Persians from time to time.

Of course, there is also pumping, and you can pump as well as general passives that affect the whole family as a whole, such as an attack power, dodge, armor, increased experience, and classic, each character, there are really few skills, seven passive, and four active skills (not counting the five different passives for each character, which act if someone from the family is in the cave nearby), but there are enough of them too, because, in addition to skills, artifacts are constantly falling in the dungeons, of which there are three types in the game, one disposable, acting for a certain amount of time, uncontrollable companions, such as stunning companions, or simply adding a crit chance, as well as powerful totems, divine relics, for example, buffing a hero, or causing AoE damage.

In addition to artifacts in the caves, the steles were activated by the caring grandmother Margaret, of which there are also a great many. Here you have both speed, and increased drop from mobs in the form of gold, crit, armor, and so on, and so on. Here and there, there are jugs dear to the heart, which scatter with a characteristic sound, leaving a pile of gold on the ground (which is actually not that pile).

All sorts of traps are also scattered across the entire surface of the dungeon. And from time to time, rare mobs creep out, from which an item drops out, allowing you to open special chests. And after a while, the old woman will reveal the secrets of the runes for the family, and the skills of the heroes will sparkle with new colors, because the runes will add interesting bonuses to the skills, greatly facilitating the passage...

There is no coop in the game yet, but the developers promised to add it as soon as possible, because it is always more fun to play in a company with a friend, moreover, they plan to introduce into the game the ability to play together on one PC, using a split monitor.

Children of Morta is not afraid to be called the best thing that has happened to the rogue-lite genre in recent years, it's not for nothing that it received such high critical acclaim, literally immediately after its release. Publishers from 11-bit studios have once again proved that they want and can publish good, delicious games in a wide variety of genres. And if hopelessness rules in Frostpunk or This War of Mine, in Children of Morta Hope took the atmospheric helm. This is a game about love. About a family in which everyone, even a child, is ready to sacrifice his life for the sake of his loved ones.
