The Culture

The Tarahumara was a powerful and dangerous tribe who occupied most of northern Mexico. Contrary to popular belief, they were conflictive and skilled warriors. There’s evidence of them clashing with Apaches, Conchos and other tribes, but never conquered by them. When the Jesuits arrived and started colonizing, they ran into 100 years of bloody conflict before being able to settle. The Tarahumara still live and have adapted to the modern world fairly well. They still have many of their ancient rites, myths and customs, but have mixed the catholic religion with their own. One can meet them face to face every day in the state of Chihuahua, and also see them living in the same prehistoric natural way scattered along the beautiful Sierra.

The Runners

The Tarahumara have been called super athletes, super humans, and even The Greatest Race the world has never seen . All because of one thing: their running. Harness the renowned athletic talents of the Tarahumara as you engage in fast-paced platforming and hand-to-hand combat. Traverse a 3D world inspired by the legendary, real-life landscapes of northern Mexico, rendered in a vibrant, low-poly visual style.

The Process

Mulaka was 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. From narration in their indigenous language, to music unique to the region, experience an authentic representation of Tarahumara culture.

Quests

Draw upon the powers of demigods and battle fearsome creatures pulled from the rich lore of the Tarahumara people. 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. Obtain new powerful transformations from the mighty demi-gods throughout your quest and become a true Sukurúame!

Mulaka will be released on Playstation 4 and Steam on February 27th. Nintendo Switch and Xbox One owners will have to wait only a few days longer for the release on March 1st.
