Top Critic Average
The Bergson's are charming but their quest is a bit too lifeless. A middling dungeon crawler elevated by its style.
Dead Mage belts three home runs: one for the story, another for the action, and the last for the deep and interesting RPG elements
A gorgeous roguelike dungeon crawler that remains compelling and exciting throughout, despite a lot of grinding.
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.

A lot of love and time has gone into Children of Morta, and the level of polish and complexity across its narrative and gameplay make it one of the most interesting roguelites to date. The difficulty curve and relative brevity of its story may put some off, but Children of Morta is a beautifully crafted, polished roguelite that deserves your attention.
Children of Morta is an excellently designed action RPG that hosts some well refined dungeon crawling elements.
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.

Children of Morta is a rewarding action RPG with a lot of heart, providing you can make it through its repetitive opening hours.
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.
