It has charm, polish, heart, and a whole lot of promise - Children of Morta is the child who subconsciously wants to meet everyone’s expectations, and is slightly tearing herself apart doing so.

A gorgeous roguelike dungeon crawler that remains compelling and exciting throughout, despite a lot of grinding.

The Bergson's are charming but their quest is a bit too lifeless. A middling dungeon crawler elevated by its style.

Children of Morta takes the mechanics from the roguelike genre but manages to craft a trully narrative experience. An unique game that offers fun gameplay mixed with an emotional story full of heart. One of the greatest surprises of 2019 so far.

Children of Morta is a fun but derivative, stylish and elegant story driven roguelite. Although the setting is quite usual, the story of the Bergsons family is heartwarming and moving, and that makes this game quite unique.

My opinion of Children Of Morta has improved, and I can see it finding a happy audience. But if I wasn’t reviewing it I doubt I’d have got there. It leads with its worst foot and you have to grind for hours to drag the other one into the dance.

With procedural worlds, fantastic cooperative combat, and a storyline that makes you care about the entire Bergson family, Children of Morta represents the best example of games as art. There are still a few months to go in 2019, but Children of Morta is looking like my Indie Game of the Year.

Unless you simply don't like roguelike games, you should absolutely pick yourself up Children of Morta and experience it for yourself. You won't regret a second of your time with it.

Children of Morta is a solidly built action roguelite, but it's the family struggles and heart within that elevate it above the crowd.

Behind Children of Morta's pixel art, lies an excellent hack'n'slash which has little to envy to the pillars of the genre. The RPG aspect is well defined, and the growth of the characters is never trivial.

Rather than simply chaining meaningless rooms in a "one-piece-a monster-a-treasure" adventure, even if, in the main, a rogue-like is always a bit like that , Children of Morta grafts us over a well-written story, with great music, dozens of cut-scenes and events that are unlocked, and a narrative made by a guy who has a voice comment animal documentaries with your neutral (especially those where we see a buffalo devoured by a dozen hyenas).

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

What you feel after completing Children of Morta is not the regular nostalgia after finishing a great hack’n’slash-roguelite hybrid – it's the feeling of leaving you family and the safety of your home. A splendid game!

While not perfect, what's there is jaw-droppingly gorgeous, plus it has heart and brains. If you're a fan of roguelikes, Children of Morta is well worth your time.

Children of Morta is an outstanding action-adventure that benefits from the added concept of family ties. Without the Bergsons, it would be an above average but unremarkable little hack and slash game. With a family for you to relate to, this is a journey where every character has significance, where every family member feels real and valuable to the whole.
