Game development has a pretty steep learning curve these days, and although Texas based Dead Mage’s first game Garshasp: the Monster Slayer hit with a whimper, they bounced back, first with Shadow Blade for iOS and now with the announcement of Children of Morta.
Described by the developer as a “rogue-like hack and slash game”, Children of Morta sees you play as characters in a family seeking to heal the corruption spewing forth from Mount Morta and kill the monsters that are threatening their home.
Dead Mage promises to incorporate an intriguing narrative as you battle through environments and characters that look like they stepped out of a 90s VGA Sierra adventure game.
Dramatic music highlights the action previewed in the announcement trailer as characters fight and dance, mix spells and… dance some more.
Specific details about the nuances in combat and magic will hopefully be announced soon.
Children of Morta should see a 2015 release on PC.
