What is Mortal Shell? Firstly, Thanks to the handsome dreamcastGuy for giving Lv1 gaming.com and me the code to play and review this game! I am playing on the PC on the Epic store Build 08.08.02 Revision 9103. I like to state at the top of this piece, I had no major software issues. That may not be the case for everyone, though. One of the first things that can be said is this game is stunning. Mortal Shell feels dark, yet blazingly bright. Hopeful yet depressingly dark. From the start in the dark, murky tutorial world to the fog cover swamps, your start in Mortal Shell sets a feeling and sticks with it. The music, ambient sounds, menus, and just the whole package is a world to get sucked into. The variety of enemy visual types is impressive even if when it comes down to it, they are the same attack wise. Everything is bold and feels like it’s part of the world. I have to hand it to developer Cold Symmetry and publisher Playstack. They have something special here. Something we’ve seen time and time before but with enough unique twists to make it stand out. Cold Symmetry was founded in 2017 by a core team of four. The studio is composed of AAA veterans with a strong passion for making games. A core team of 4 worked on this game no doubt with the help of others but this was 4 people’s dream. Think about that.
