Magic and Combat

The Sukuruame is the shaman or warlock capable of interacting with the Repa Gatígame (the ones above) and Tere Gatígame (the ones below), and also the most capable of facing mythical creatures like the Ganoko (giants), Rusíwari (soul-eating rocks) or Uribi (trolls). Sukuruames are skillful at melee combat and may create special magic potions and recipes to enhance their abilities or add effects to his weapons. They can also channel any demi-god’s blessing towards a weapon, having many possible magic effects for each weapon.

The Process

Mulaka: Origin Tribes was designed hand in hand with renowned anthropologists and Rarámuri leaders to capture the true essence of the culture in the game. We have unearthed old books, crumbling texts and forgotten diaries and gotten the most playable elements, as well as the coolest myths and stories and recorded authentic Rarámuri dialogue. Everything has been done so you can experience the power and adventurous history of this culture.

The Culture Then

The Rarámuri was a powerful and dangerous tribe who occupied most of northern México. Contrary to popular belief, they were conflictive and skilled warriors. There’s evidence of them clashing with Apaches, Conchos and other tribes, but never conquered by them. When the Jesuits arrived and started colonizing, they ran into 100 years of bloody conflict before being able to settle.

The Culture Now

The Rarámuri still live and have adapted to the modern world fairly well. They still have many of their ancient rites, myths and customs, but have mixed the catholic religion with their own. One can meet them face to face every day in the state of Chihuahua, and also see them living in the same prehistoric natural way scattered along the beautiful Sierra.

Help out!

Lienzo is a small studio in a place where game development is as rare as a Ganoko's sighting, so getting this far hasn't been easy. Please share with your friends and family and help us spread the word. Any help is of great value! The more people we can reach the more we can help the Rarámuri. Get involved!

Social Meaning
