Developer Lienzo is excited to celebrate the launch of Mulaka, their 3D action adventure game, which is an intimate look at the rich history and mythology of northern Mexico’s indigenous Tarahumara people. Available today now for PS4 and PC, the game is slated to release on Nintendo Switch and Xbox One later this week on March 1st and March 2nd respectively. To kick off the launch week festivities, a new launch trailer has been added.
Embracing lush and diverse imagery drawn directly from the Sierra Tarahumara region of Mexico that the Tarahumara people call their home, Mulaka’s launch trailer shines a spotlight on the hero’s journey. From facing down giant bosses like the fearsome Watakari – A gargantuan bullfrog, ancient guardian of the mythical Arareko lake – to using the powers of the demigods to transform and explore new parts of the world, Mulaka offers up a fast-paced gameplay experience that’s truly authentic to the culture it so lovingly portrays.
This includes dialog recorded in the Tarahumara’s native tongue, and a world full of creatures based on myths and legends that have been passed down for generations, highlighting Lienzo’s commitment to authenticity throughout Mulaka. Unsurprisingly, the team at Lienzo conducted extensive research in order to achieve this, which included consultations with anthropologists and approval from Tarahumara elders.
We are currently concluding our adventure of Mulaka and should have our full written out to you all very soon.
