Designed By Kickstarter Backers

Roguelite ARPG Children of Morta has a new character to try out. Apan the Clan Mother comes from a land to the north of Mount Morta and isn't part of the Bergson clan, but she's welcomed into the fold anyway. She was designed by one of the game's Kickstarter backers and his partner.

Developer Dead Mage says Apan is a skilled healer who can provide support for her companions. She wields a staff with reasonable range, allowing her to deliver mid-range strikes against enemies. Apan also has a pulse dash ability to move quickly around the map, as well as area-of-effect spells that help her clear battlefields with devastating efficiency. Her skill tree also makes healing potions more efficient for the Bergson family as a whole. You can check out the release trailer for Apan right here:

 
 

Who designed Children of Morta's Apan?

Apan was created by Kickstarter backer AgaRar and his partner GlueBubble. The two say that Apan was originally intended to be an orphan, but that her design was changed to that of a mother in order to better fit the theme and storyline of Children of Morta. They describe their creation as "a strong leader of nomadic healers" who allies herself with the Bergson family in order to help them clear out the corruption endemic to Mount Morta.

This new character comes as part of the Bergsons' House update, which is now available for free if you own Children of Morta. The update brings with it Apan, new runes for her, and new story cutscenes that incorporate her. In addition, you'll also find some HUD tweaks and minor UI changes in this update to Children of Morta, as well as some additional bug fixes. Children of Morta is available to buy on PC via Steam, GOG, and the Humble Store. It's also on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

Dark Souls changed my life, and I'm here to spread the good news. I like pretty much all sorts of games, but I judge everything by its proximity to our Lord and saviour, Dark Souls.
