Developer Lienzo has announced today that their visually stunning adventure Mulaka is finally getting released in only a matter of weeks. The game will be released on PS4 and PC (via Steam) on February 27, while the Nintendo Switch and Xbox One versions will come out on March 1 and 2 respectively. The game can be purchased for $19.99, and part of the money will be sent to organizations that support the Mexican region of Sierra Tarahumara, which was the inspiration for the gorgeous landscapes and visual design of the game.
Mulaka allows players to control a Mexican shaman in his quest to liberate his land from an invasion of evil spirits. Here’s a general overview of the game: “Renowned for their impressive running abilities, embark on the journey of a Sukurúame – a Tarahumara shaman – as you fight back the foulness corrupting the land, while drawing upon the powers of demigods. From solving puzzles in environments inspired by real Sierra Tarahumara locations, to heated hand-to-hand combat with creatures pulled from the region’s mythology, find out why the Tarahumara have earned a reputation for being superhumans.”
The animated visual design and the focus on the mythology of a particular culture has drawn comparisons with Capcom’s masterpiece Okami, so fans of Amaterasu should take a look at this fascinating tale of a Mexican hero.
