Children of Morta moved to 2019.



Hello there, friends!

So, as some of you might have already expected, we have decided to postpone Children of Morta to 2019.

Our goal is to deliver a mind-blowing, story-driven hack n’ slasher — and we’ll get there — but the journey is going to take a bit longer than expected.

Having a solid amount of feedback after shows like PAX Prime, and knowing exactly the goal we need to reach, we have decided to move the release date of Children of Morta, on all platforms, to 2019”, says Producer, Marek Ziemak. “There is huge potential for this gem and we know how to fulfill it, so some things are already put in motion. I strongly believe in Mr. Miyamoto’s words about delaying a game to make sure it’s brilliant when it releases and nothing less. Also, and I believe this is important from the gaming community’s perspective, we are now developing Children of Morta for all four major platforms and there will be a simultaneous launch on all of them - Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC.



The biggest and most time-consuming change is Children of Morta’s growth. The game is increasing significantly in size, as each of the three biomes the player can visit in the game will now have more levels and they’re larger overall. Another addition we’ve made is mini-bosses awaiting at the end of each level. The storyline praised in the previews is going to be written with a bolder pen, making the game’s world more strongly tied to the plot. All in all, there’s more work ahead for the devs but it’s for the good of the game.

"The main challenge has been integrating the main story arc inside a repeatable roguelike setting and also making sure the family feel is there to let the gamer experience an adventure alongside a family of guardians.", says Amir Fassihi, CEO at Dead Mage. "Many elements need to be procedurally generated while the whole story follows one main line."

We know that waiting for your favourite game really sucks. We are gamers, too - we know the feeling all too well. However, we also love to play the best games out there. And this time - it's our job to deliver one. We hope you're going to trust us for a little longer.

Meanwhile, take a look at the evolving art style on new screenshots and have a great Winter Holidays!







- - - Additional FAQ - - -

1. Is the game still coming to PS Vita?
We are very sorry, but due to the fact that the game is getting bigger and better - we are unable to port it to PS Vita. It's mostly due to technical limiations of the platform. If you've backed us on Kickstarter (witch means a world to us - thank you!), choosing PS Vita as your platform - please contact us via techsupport@11bitstudios.com - we'll do what we can to compensate for that situation.

2. Do you have the exact release date?
We don't have an exact date, yet. We don't want to overpromise anything - but when we are ready, we are going to announce it.

3. How can I stay up to date?

Have a good one!

About This Game

IT RUNS IN THE FAMILY.


The Bergson family has watched over Mount Morta for generations as the guardians of the mystical mountain and the lands surrounding it, but now they face their most dangerous trial as a family. Corruption has seeped into the mountain, spreading and morphing the once peaceful mountain into a violent, monster infested nightmare.

Experience what it means to be in a family of heroes. Take part in their journey, their struggles, and their victories! Witness the love each has for another, unmatched by even the gods themselves. Fight through hordes of unfathomable beasts as you explore the darkest depths of this ever-changing mountain. Gorgeous and breathtaking procedurally generated dungeons guarantee a unique experience every time you leave the safety of the Bergson’s home. Fight, protect, and discover the truth behind the Corruption!

Media about Children of Morta:


"The pixel art graphics looks fantastic, but it's the promise of "a powerful narrative of familial ties" about a family that's guarded Mount Morta for generations that really grabs my attention".
- PC Gamer

"Children of Morta is attractive in a way that few games manage to be. You might think it’s going to be a retro pixel art thing at first but then you see the animations, you see how every single one is packed with more frames than an entire NES cartridge"
- Rock Paper Shotgun

"All that family personality (...) shines through in large part due to the artwork and animations".
- Destructoid

"I’ve never seen a family in a game so large and colorful as the Bergsons. Each character is instantly identifiable despite the cluttered, riotous art style, and each is distinct from the others in animation and playstyle".
- Medium
