Children of Morta Paws and Claws DLC Steps on the Wild Side for a Good Cause

The newest Children of Morta DLC expansion adds some furry friends to the Bergson household, and for a good cause.

Dead Mage Studios has announced a new Children of Morta DLC expansion called Paws and Claws that's all about animals. The DLC costs $3.99, but there's a twist. All proceeds are going to Humane Society International.

Children of Morta Producer Karol Kala said:

Animals are a big part of the original Children of Morta story, so enriching relationships with them in the game felt natural.

And collaborating with an organization like Humane Society International perfectly fits 11 Bit Studios’ mindset since we believe that a company producing meaningful games should also act meaningfully.

Paws and Claws adds a whole new section to the Bergson family home that serves as an animal shelter. Animals like birds and foxes will regularly drop by, and the Bergsons can use treats to befriend and care for their animal visitors.

There's also a practical side to caring for animals, as the Bergsons receive special boosts related to the animal houseguests, like EXP gains and movement speed.

Like previous Children of Morta expansions, Paws and Claws adds new home events and "over 100 new animations," and there's a free treasure pack adding new relics, Divine Graces, and more.

Children of Morta is available on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, and we called it one of our top games of 2019 thanks to its "solid central hook, satisfying gameplay, and gorgeous art style." Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Children of Morta news as it develops.

But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
