TL;DR: Mulaka is coming to Xbox One & PS4, as well as PC through Steam, later this year. The game is up for voting on the Games of Ours Awards and we thank you all involved in gaming for everything you’ve done!

 

Hello!

The entire team at Lienzo has been working passionately on our biggest project to date and we now have some exciting news to share with you!

For all console gamers out there, Mulaka is now confirmed for release on Xbox One & PlayStation 4 later this year!

Mulaka consoles

Of course we haven’t forgotten about all the wonderful PC users out there! Mulaka had a very successful run on Steam Greenlight a few weeks ago and was greenlit in just 11 days! We got the news while at GDC 2017, so we were unable to tell you all about this fantastic achievement at the time but we can’t thank you enough for that! We’ll be creating the game’s store page on Steam very soon so you can add it to your wishlists!

Mulaka is up for voting on the Games of Ours Awards by Artificial Creations! The link to vote is at the bottom of the page.

That’s it for our news today! We hope you’re looking forward to enjoying Mulaka on PC, Xbox One & PlayStation 4 later this year! Mulaka is our biggest effort to date, a project which began its design process back in 2014 and went through a long pursuit for funding in 2015. Its release is finally around the corner and we can’t be more excited about this.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone reading this message. If you’re reading this, you’re involved in video games somehow, whether it is as a consumer, a creator, a journalist, or as someone who celebrates and enjoys this medium.

I dealt with some health issues during the past weeks that got me into the hospital. During my time there, gaming helped me cope with the stress and pain and got me thinking about the power behind video games. We regularly see video games as simple entertainment, tough to build and ship, but simple entertainment nonetheless. There are times when we don’t realize how they can be helping others in dealing with their problems. When thinking about games as a distraction, we often undermine the effects of entertainment, let alone an immersive experience, for people in vulnerable situations. If you’re contributing in some way to this industry, whether that is by creating, buying or letting other people know about games, you’re lending a hand to others in struggles that you don’t even know about.

To all gamers, thank you for playing games and supporting their developers. To all developers, thank you for creating wonderful experiences and pushing the best entertainment medium forward. To all journalists and content creators, thank you for telling everyone about the best content that we should all enjoy.

At Lienzo, we’ll continue to do our best in contributing to the healthy growth of video games.

Mulaka: First gameplay preview and Steam Greenlight!

Hello!

Since the early design stage in 2014, the Kickstarter and funding campaigns of 2015, and the beginning of production in 2016, Mulaka has come a long way and it’s finally time for us to unveil the very first gameplay trailer! The video is now live along with our Steam Greenlight campaign. Vote for Mulaka and help us get the game on Steam!

Dive into northern Mexico’s most breathtaking landscape to experience the true life of a Sukurúame. Mulaka is a 3D action-adventure game based on the Tarahumara indigenous culture that explores the lore of these legendary people!

INDIGENOUS LORE

The gods have witnessed foulness spreading throughout their creation, corrupting men and beast alike. They now delve deep within themselves debating whether or not it’s time to wipe this world clean and start over. It’s your duty to rally the demi-gods and gain their trust to save humanity! The Sukurúame is the shaman or warlock capable of interacting with the gods above, below and everywhere in between. He is also the most capable of facing mythical creatures like the gigantic Ganoko, the soul-eating Rusíwari or the fire-spitting Sipabuara.

enemies op

Mulaka is being designed hand in hand with renowned anthropologists and Tarahumara 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 Tarahumara dialogue. Everything has been done so you can experience the power and adventurous history of this culture.

THE GAMEPLAY

Action-adventure at its finest! Explore a 3D world inspired by real Sierra Tarahumara landscapes while solving puzzles, collecting magic herbs, fighting soul-eating foes, and running with the world-renowned Tarahumara prowess. The Tarahumara have been called super athletes, super humans, and even The Greatest Race the world has ever seen because of their running skills. Harness this amazing ability and engage in fast-paced gameplay!

combat opSukurúames are skillful at melee combat and can create special magic potions to enhance their powers and gain new abilities. Obtain new powerful transformations from the mighty demi-gods throughout your quest and become a true Sukurúame!

LOW POLY ART

Mulaka features a gorgeous low-poly art style that shines with vibrant colors and breathtaking vistas that you won’t believe! The low polygonal visual direction allows us to portray the vast varied landscapes of the region without sacrificing any fidelity to their real world counterparts.

enemies2 op

Not only will you look at a pretty game, but you’ll feel in the Tarahumara lands. Enjoy the barren dunes of the Samalayuca desert, the unique architecture of Paquimé, the calm and romantic mood at the Lake of Arareko, the majestic nature of Basaseachi, and more!

SOUNDS OF LA SIERRA

Music and sound go hand in hand with the full indigenous experience of the Tarahumara. That’s why we created music as authentic to the experience of an indigenous soundtrack as we could get.

tribes and culture op

Not only that, but we also recorded sounds at the locations of the game. Yes, we captured how a bonfire sounds at the Sierra Tarahumara. We captured the sounds of nature, all to create an immersive experience.

Thank you for all your support! We can’t wait to bring you the game later this year. We’ll announce soon all the platforms where Mulaka will be available.

See you all at GDC 2017!

Hunter's Legacy on consoles

Save the Kingdom of Iripur (pun totally intended)!

Hello, gamers!

It’s been some weeks after we released Hunter’s Legacy on Xbox One & PS4 and we wanted to share with you some of our favorite videos and reviews of the game since our launch!

The wonderful people at Xbox Mexico published a video of our interview with Major Nelson!

 

Our good friend Louie Ortiz, a talented local musician, did a fantastic nighttime music piece of the game. It definitely inspired us!

 

CornshaqGaming did a great video review of Hunter’s Legacy.

 

Foul Mouth Productions did a fairly long and in-depth review of the game. As the name suggests, be wary of some foul language.

 

Also check out this great written reviews of the game:

  • Video ChumsHunter’s Legacy is an action-packed Metroidvania that gamers who love testing their mettle will enjoy immensely.
  • ICXM.net: It’s hard not to recommend it to fans of Metroidvania titles.
  • Absolute GeeksThe platforming of this game is immensely challenging and gratifying, recalling the best moments of Shovel Knight in the process.
  • Mammoth Gamers: For the first game from the independent developer Lienzo, they hit their mark fairly well.
  • Dorkadia: Anyone in need of a challenging yet satisfying old school adventure game should pick this up.
  • Gamespew: One of the best of the genre I have played in years.

Stay tuned next week for a BIG REVEAL! Wanna know what’s coming next for us? ;)
