Based upon the rich history and mythology of northern Mexico’s indigenous Tarahumara people, Lienzo is excited to announce the release date for their upcoming game, Mulaka, alongside a brand new trailer (above).
Regardless of which console or platform players plan to experience Mulaka on, pre-orders are now available and serve an additional purpose. Inspired by the Sierra Tarahumara region of Mexico and the indigenous people who still live there, Lienzo has committed to donating a portion of the game’s earnings – both through pre-orders and following launch – to NGOs that focus their support on the region.
Explored in the three-part vidoc series, “Behind Mulaka,” Lienzo has drawn upon the storied past and legends of the Tarahumara people, while leveraging the video game medium to preserve a culture that’s at risk of disappearing among future generations. The result is a compelling and fast-paced action adventure game that sports fierce hand-to-hand combat with unique mythological beings, a vibrant, low-poly visual style, and the ability to transform into a range of powerful demigods, all while maintaining authentic indigenous representation.
Mulaka launches across Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4 and Xbox One on the week of February 27th., 2018.
