11bit Studios revealed their charity DLC for Children of Morta, Paws and Claws, has officially earned over $300,000 for Humane Society International.
The DLC, which was released Aug. 2020, added an animal shelter, and animal care system to Children of Morta. Since then, 100 percent of their proceeds have gone to the Humane Society International, an organization known for improving the living conditions of animals worldwide.
For those unfamiliar with Children of Morta, you can find the official overview below.
IT RUNS IN THE FAMILY
Children of Morta is an action RPG with a rogue-lite approach to character development, where you don’t play a single character – but a whole, extraordinary family of heroes. Hack’n’slash through hordes of enemies in procedurally generated dungeons, caves and lands and lead the family of Bergsons, with all their flaws and virtues, against the forthcoming Corruption.
ONLINE CO-OP is live now in the game giving you the possibility to play with a long-distanced friend! Available both in Story and Family Trials modes, the Online Co-op gives you a chance to team up and battle Corruption side by side. Local Co-op is also available!
Gameplay-wise it’s a unique mix of action-adventure RPG, rogue-lite and hack and slash game. By leveling up, you develop not only individual characters but also the entire family. There is no permadeath and you can change family members between the dungeon runs.
The story takes place in a distant land but copes with themes and emotions common to all of us: love and hope, longing and uncertainty, ultimately loss… and sacrifice we are willing to make to save the ones we care the most for. Ultimately, it’s about a family of heroes standing against the encroaching darkness.
All the dungeons in the game are procedurally generated, which means their layout is different with each adventure. There can be from two to four levels of each dungeon, with a unique boss fight at the end. You can always get back to the previous dungeons to get extra XP or finish all the side quests.
CHARACTERS & SKILLS
Ranged attacks, magic spells, blocks, stuns, healing, evasions and passive skills – it’s all there for you to discover, unlock and upgrade. You can choose from seven different family members, each one having unique skill sets. The father, John – a protective warrior with a sword and shield. The elder daughter Linda – a precise archer. Kevin, a quiet fighter equipped with deadly daggers. Lucy – a lively and bold fire mage. Mark – a mindful martial arts fighter. Joey – who smashes his enemies with a sledgehammer. And the latest addition to the family – Apan, a mighty healer and a firm defender in one.
A combination of hand-painted pixel art and frame-by-frame animations partnered with modern lighting techniques come to life to create the beautifully dangerous world of Children of Morta!
DEVELOPMENT ROADMAP COMPLETEDSteam
The ancient Development Roadmap has come to an end. As a result the game has gained additional content including new characters, new items, new mechanics and more! The final point – Fellowship Sanctuary – has been reached, giving you a free update with Online Co-op for two players. The Online Co-op is available in all game modes (Story and Family Trials) and like the local co-op, it offers numerous playstyles, since every Children of Morta warrior has a unique fight style.
Children of Morta is currently available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
