Mortal Shell is a deep action-RPG that tests your sanity and resilience in a shattered world. Your adversaries spare no mercy, with survival demanding superior awareness, precision, and instincts. Possess lost warriors, track down hidden sanctums of the devout, and face formidable foes. As the remains of humanity wither and rot, zealous foes fester in the ruins. They spare no mercy, with survival demanding superior awareness, precision and instincts. Track down hidden sanctums of devout followers and discover your true purpose.
Your path is guarded by desperate adversaries, devoted to inscrutable gods. Behold creatures both pitiable and grotesque, but do not let fear halt your journey. Muster your courage and face them down. The dead litter this tattered landscape, but not all are without hope. The lost remains of defeated warriors are yours to discover. Awaken these Mortal Shells, occupy their bodies and significantly open your understanding to diverse masteries of combat.
Supposedly made by a small team yet has better graphics than most AAA games. Surprisingly not that glitchy. Not as hard as dark souls in some parts while other parts seem very hard to get passed. The shell concept is great but I wish each shell had different abilities as in maybe one shell has harden, another shell has like phasing, another has like a mirage to pull the enemies attacks, and another has like a disorientate to dizzy other guys. Not super sure but something different than solely relying on harden and dodging.
Combat is strategic and deliberate. You must commit your sword only when an opportunity opens. Calculate your parries to unleash devastating counterblows. Temporarily entomb your Mortal Shell in stone to block attacks, or play aggressive and use your stone-form to add brutal weight to your own sword swings. This game is cool, getting into it at first was weird but the hardening mechanics are really interesting. It’s impossible to not compare this to something like dark souls, but it brings a lot of fresh ideas to the formula that others lack,
