Description

Lienzo is a video game development studio located in Chihuahua, Mexico. We create experiences that are up to the quality standard of this creative international industry. We know that video games are the ultimate medium for storytelling and we strive to leave a mark on the lives of gamers.

History

Early history

Lienzo was founded in 2012 in order to provide the local talent with a place to develop and fulfill their creativity. The studio began working on various small projects, a lot of them under contracts, for different companies and events, including food chains and museums.

Now

By the end of 2014, the studio decided it was time to move forward to new, bigger, and original projects. Everyone at Lienzo realized it was a risky move, but wanted to create something that was their own. Lienzo began laying the groundwork for their biggest project to date and began planning of a video game based on the Tarahumara indigenous tribe that lives in northern Mexico. The name of the game is Mulaka and the studio pursued funding for over a year, doing everything from networking events, pitching to investors, and even a Kickstarter. Meanwhile, a couple of members of the studio began work on a platforming game that would become what we now know as Hunter's Legacy, the first Lienzo game to be released to the public. After the release of Hunter's Legacy, the team at Lienzo continued the development of Mulaka achieving heights they never dreamed of, and the game is now available on the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
