The start of 2015 has been surprisingly quiet in regards to crowdfunding with very few campaigns standing out thus far. Children of Morta may just be one of the first this year to distinguish itself from the pack.
It focuses on the Bergson family who have been caring for the land of Morta for generations. However, one day some sort of evil suddenly corrupts Mount Morta and brings many monsters to this once peaceful world. The entire Bergson family must fight back against it to save the land. You can select any family member to explore through procedurally generated environments and narrative events.
The concept and diverse cast of characters seem to be a big allure, although the fluid pixel art is definitely drawing attention itself. Children of Morta requires $65,000 in Kickstarter funding to succeed, but if it keeps up today’s launch pace then it should do just fine.
