Children of Morta was one of my favourite games from 2019, coming out of nowhere to surprise me – a roguelike with heart? A roguelike with a story that I cared about?
The action-RPG now expands with a free content update, Shrine of Challenge, the first of a roadmap full of free updates and content to come in 2020. The update brings a new Hard mode, along with a pair of new enemies, and 18 new items – a solid group of additions to the game, especially for free!
If you haven’t played this indie gem, available on PC, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One, absolutely jump in now. It’s available on sale on Steam for PC players, and it’s available on Xbox Game Pass as well.
