What is the story behind Mortal Shell?

Mortal Shell‘s story and lore are cryptic and it isn’t easy to really piece together what is going on unless you put a lot of effort into it. Lore is handled much the same way as it is in Dark Souls, with item descriptions and convoluted dialogue doing a lot of the heavy lifting. You will also learn more about the story of the game, via the Shells themselves, as each has a backstory that becomes more and more clear as you unlock their Skills.

Is there Character Customization?

The customization of Mortal Shell is where you can really see that the game, while on par with Souls in some ways, is still an indie title and one without a huge budget. There are Playable characters through shells.

What are Shells?

Shells in Mortal Shell is an integral mechanic of the game where players can discover and learn various classes that will suit your playstyle.
You can even play without shells for a more “hardcore” experience. Shells grant players abilities plus backstory for each character.

Another really interesting thing is that there are sections of the game that allow you to change your Shell from one to another, so you can play an area as your preferred Shell.  

What about the weapons?

There are 4 Weapons in the game, each of which has unique Skills and Abilities that can be unlocked as you progress, but that is not a mind blowing amount. These are the Martyr's Blade, Hammer and Chisel, Claymore or Hallowed Sword, and a Mace. There are no Shields in Mortal Shell, except for those some enemies use.

Weapons can also be upgraded to have various effects at certain stations through out the game world, and this allows players to gain abilities they can do with them. For example, the Martyr’s Blade has a special AoE it can do to freeze nearby enemies. Another weapon looks like it can be upgraded to have an acid effect, but how that works is not yet completely known.
