If you’ve slept on Children of Morta, do yourself a favor and give it a look. The game is an action-RPG that mixes in roguelike elements for good measure. Part of the fun after getting through a procedurally generated dungeon is returning to the Bergson home, the headquarters for the game’s heroes, and seeing new narrative snippets. For fans of this aspect of Children of Morta, it might be quite pleasing to know that the Bergsons’ House update brings more narrative—and a new character! Meet Apan in the update trailer:

Here’s a rundown from the Evolve PR press release of what’s coming from the new update, which is available now:

  • A brand-new character with a unique skillset designed to play in single-player, but also shines in co-op playthroughs
  • Special shielding skills and passive healing mechanics
  • 32 new Apan-specific Runes
  • 9 new story cutscenes
  • A few HUD and UI tweaks
  • Additional bug fixes

The development of Apan is actually pretty cool; here’s how the team describes it:

“Apan – known as Clan Mother in her homeland – came from the far north of Mount Morta. She is as skilled in providing vital support for companions on the battlefield as she is in wielding a sturdy staff. Her weapon’s reach makes Apan perfect for delivering deadly mid-range strikes, her special Asva Pulse dash ability leaves opponents hindered in the dust, and her spells cover a large area of effect. In defence, all of the Bergsons can take advantage of Apan’s medical knowledge as she also boosts the effects of healing potions, and a new mechanic lets the family gain shields from items, abilities, and Apan’s Rage skill. Simply put, Apan’s presence makes them all stronger, especially in battle.

The exciting new character design was created by one of Children of Morta’s Kickstarter backers and his partner, who both believed in the project since its very early stages. Here’s what these backers – known as AgaRar and GlueBubble – had to say about the idea that inspired the Apan’s creation, ‘The idea for Apan came from the brainstorming of myself and my partner. We originally made her an orphan, but later changed her to a mother to better compliment the Children of Morta story and family theme. A strong leader of nomadic healers who allies herself with the Bergsons to aid them in their fight against Corruption. We hope that our inspiration, and Dead Mage’s hard work, translates into a character that you all will enjoy for years to come.’”
