The Bergson family has yet another new challenge on the way with the Children of Morta Family Trials update. It’s a free Children of Morta update introducing a separate mode and the perilous Zyklus dungeon, and it’s available now on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
The Zyklus dungeon contains multiple randomized floors with different objectives ranging from protecting laborers to surviving as long as possible. The layout changes every time a new dungeon run starts, and like all good roguelikes, failure means losing a significant amount of loot.
The goal is experimenting with the best possible builds and adjusting them to match the challenges ahead.
Every Bergson family member is available from the start with all active abilities unlocked. They get Talents on leveling up, with a maximum of 40 Talents, and these replace Runes from the base game. Relics get extra tiers, and every item is upgradeable.
Those who believe they’ve mastered the challenges can think again. Succeeding in Zyklus unlocks two additional difficulty levels, Hard and Insane, with each adding new levels and challenges to Zyklus.
We adored Children of Morta when it released in 2019, calling it “a standout roguelike RPG with a solid central hook, satisfying gameplay, and gorgeous art style …”
