Morbid: The Seven Acolytes is a representative of the hack'n'slash action RPG genre in a horror convention and lovecraft atmosphere. The game was developed by independent studio Still Running.
The action of the game takes place in the dark, brutal world of Mornia, and the player takes on the role of a fearless warrior from Dibrom, who has been trained all his life to fight against seven acolytes possessed by sinister gods called Gahars. The main goal is to kill them and save the kingdom from the terror of the gods' bones spoiled to the marrow, who used the minds of the acolytes to sow fear and destruction, and without which they cannot exist.
Morbid: The Seven Acolytes resembles the Dark Souls series, but in 2D and top-down view. It focuses on exploring the darkened world, performing quests and, above all, fighting against enemies. We are fighting duels with our blood-hungry creatures, among which there are even more challenging bosses. Every battle requires the right strategy, avoiding fatal blows and leading out attacks at the right time.
More than 25 unique weapons such as swords, axes, spears and firearms, special items, runes that increase damage and perks. During the game, we unlock next levels, thanks to which we can develop the character in a direction that matches our style of play. The hero is also described by three parameters: points of life, endurance and mental health, which must be taken care of regularly.
In the creation of the world of Morbid: The Seven Acolytes, the devs drew full blasts of David Cronenberg's lovecraft horrors and gore films. The locations are therefore maintained in a gloomy, macabre climate, where blood is spilled in hectolitres. An 18-tracks soundtrack composed by a symphony orchestra helps to create an horror atmosphere.
