In Windows Central's review, Brendan Lowry wrote, "Children of Morta is one of the best roguelike games I've played, and I'd even go so far as to say that it's one of the best ones ever made, period. Aside from the rare cheap moment, everything about Children of Morta, from the story to the gameplay to the presentation, is simply incredible."

This is indeed a fantastic game. With this update I actually have something to look forward to playing tonight.
Great game. Although i'm bummed that online coop hasn't been added yet. I played this with my mate in couch coop when he visited out of town, but we could never finish our game because of this (oddly) missing feature.
What's the new character's relationship to the family, is it the woman what's his face is writing to?
