Cult classic indie game La-Mulana finally gets a proper sequel

The sequel to the legendary, and legendarily tough, indie sleeper hit La-Mulana has finally been released, and all players with a penchant for retro-style platforming and a broad masochistic streak are inspired to descend into its depths.

If there have been a gaming achievement corridor of fame, absolutely one of many rarest feats can be beating La-Mulana. The unique recreation was a up to date of the revered and influential Cave Story; each have been fantastic free video games made with charming retro pixel artwork, however past that the tales diverged.

Whereas Cave Story was a comparatively accessible action-adventure that took seven or eight hours to finish, La-Mulana’s story of an archaeologist delving into the titular smash was so deep, advanced, obscure and tough that solely the actually devoted have been capable of survive even the primary few hours, not to mention the handfuls to come back.

The brand new recreation goes for a form of 32-bit look, just like the 2012 remake of the unique.

This gem, lovingly crafted to carefully mimic the feel and appear of an MSX recreation (although enormously expanded), obtained a screen-for-screen remake for the Nintendo Wii in 2012, however it wasn’t till early 2014 that the unique group of three determined to make an entire new recreation. They raised $266,000 on Kickstarter, with an estimated supply date of December 2015. That date slipped and slipped, however seemingly as a result of the sport they have been creating was one price taking the time to do proper.
