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
