Release date: Early 2013
Availability: Already available on PLAYISM, GamersGate, and GOG.

Will you fall prey to deadly traps or unravel the secrets of LA-MULANA?

LA-MULANA is an “Archaeological Ruin Exploration Action Game” in which you search inside ancient ruins, seeking out the “ Secret Treasure of Life” – which sleeps in the sprawling ruins of “LA-MULANA” and is said to be the beginning of all civilization.

Apart from the plethora of traps lying in wait to stop intruders, there are also monsters on the prowl, protecting the ruins.

Head for the innermost depths of the ruins while solving a variety of mysteries, fending off monsters, and disarming traps.

Forging ahead will be no simple task – the further into the depths you reach, the more difficult the mysteries become.

Take control of the archeologist “Professor Lemeza” and uncover the origins of mankind!

The first run of NIGORO games. Created back in the creators’ “amateur” days and renowned worldwide, it was remade for WiiWare. This is the PC port version.

This game, which originated from the creators’ wish to play the sort of games that enthralled them back in the day – only with more volume – was created based on “that old-time feeling”.

The operability and difficulty level are certainly not “new school”.

However, this game is highly recommended to gamers seeking out that feeling of total immersion that allows you to go full-on head-to-head with a game not found in somewhat lighter fare.

Please consider this game to be our challenge to you.

Play through the entire game till your fingers bleed, give up and throw it out the window, or get help from strategy guides. The choice is yours.

Key Features:
  • Over 18 unique areas in this free roaming adventure
  • Seven primary weapons.
  • Over a dozen sub-weapons
  • Over 40 quest items used to solve the riddles of "La-Mulana"
  • Over twenty applications for your trusty Mobile Super X Laptop!
  • Take on the Hell Temple Time Attack for the ultimate challenge!

Beyond the seemingly insurmountable wall of challenge, La-Mulana is a brilliant title that exceeds in just about every category. Art, music, breadth of content, game length -- La-Mulana gets the highest marks. But there's simply no denying that the difficulty, as fair as Nigoro purports it to be, is a major deterrent. If you are willing to suffer, though, you will be blown away. I guarantee it.

Nigoro’s La-Mulana is like Castlevania: Symphony of The Night spliced with Dark Souls. It is long, it is tough, it is involved and it has puzzles that’ll make your brain bleed.

La-Mulana is an incredibly well done game that will appeal to certain gamers. Those who grew up with these kind of games or who love a real challenge will flock to it. Some who are on the fence might even find the challenge addicting after giving it a shot.

SO, ON THE WHOLE: this remake does everything right. It's perfect for new players, gives returning players a lot more meat to sink their teeth into, and fleshes out the world of the game without destroying the mystery that made it so appealing in the first place.

PLAYISM is a project started by Active Gaming Media which localizes and brings quality content from the Japanese market and vice versa. We are assisting NIGORO with the publishing of the PC remake of La-Mulana.

Regarding Steam keys: We can now officially say that PLAYISM and Desura users who purchased the game will be receiving Steam keys once we have them in hand. Unfortunately GOG does not offer Steam keys to users so customers who have purchased the game through GOG will not be able to activate that purchase on Steam. We will try to set up some extra bonus goodies to at least make up for this a little bit!

I'm kind of sad that this incarnation of La Mulana took out all the MSX game references, but I'd say the game still improved overall. This is one of those high skill-cap games that you'll end up dying a lot throughout. I've never actually managed to finish this game due to my habit of taking long breaks and forgetting where I was, but the time I've spent playing this was indeed well-spent.
