Lienzo today announced that their action-adventure Mulaka will launch on Nintendo Switch on March 1, 2018.
Pre-orders for Mulaka 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 video 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.
