If A Game Looks This Good In GIFs, It’s Doing Something Right

I am a man of simple tastes. I like games with fluid animation, and I like making animated GIFs. When I get to combine those two things, boy howdy am I a happy camper.

That’s the trailer for Children of Morta, an indie dungeon-crawler from the folks at Dead Mage. Its sprites are reminiscent of that stripped-down look that really sells games like Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP and the nail-biting brawler Crawl. In it you play the Bergsons, a family charged with guarding Mount Morta.

As a good rule of thumb, if your pixel art is good enough that I feel compelled to start making GIFs for fun out of it, you are doing something very right. Here are some I made briefly after watching that trailer.

The release date is TBA, but you can follow Children of Morta’s progress here.

  • Why choose if you want to watch a 5 Mb movie when you can be forced to download 10 Mb of animated gifs that are only a fraction of the movie instead?
