Hey everyone. Children of Morta has a free preview on Steam for the next 72 hours.
I had the privilege of getting some time with a preview build a few weeks back. This is, at the minimum, a very fun game with cool design. But if its narrative promises bear out, it'll be a classic.
The pixel art graphics are gorgeous, and they'll hit some nostalgia buttons - which synthesizes perfectly with a narrative focused on family dynamics. Speaking as someone who came from a messed up family, I can very easily see this game being profoundly resonant. The designers seem keen on subverting tropes (it is one of the reasons they delayed - to sharpen the story elements) and I'm eager to see how it all comes together. In the meantime, it is worth picking up for this preview period if you have any curiosity.
