Don’t forget the original sound track.

Since the game is released worldwide, we can extensively promote the LA-MULANA’s original sound track. It’s available on bandcamp. You can also get the liner notes and jacket images on Download page. The sound track is same as PC version’s BGM, but it has some extra tracks that are not in the game. Be sure to buy it! Thanks.

Thanks again.

Now, it’s a few hours to go!! Are you ready for an adventure? It’s just before releasing it, we’d like to say a word of thanks to you. Thank you for waiting it for 3 years. We went through a difficult time for delivering LA-MULANA to you guys in overseas. This 3-year period might make some people simmer down. However, we are so proud of this work, LA-MULANA we have created, and we’d rather say it is brought to completion like you’ll find the fun undiminished even years later. Sorry we took so long, but we’d like you to enjoy playing this game for a long time.

Beginner’s guide to La-Mulana

It is said that many of Wii players are casual gamers. When WiiWare version was released in Japan, some people heard a reputation of LA-MULANA and bought it, but many of them met with a setback because they couldn’t get in even the first ruin. A promotional video was made for helping those people in particular. That is “Beginner’s guide to La-Mulana”. This time, we modified it for PC version, and translate into English. When you find fresh archaeologists who play LA-MULANA for their first time in this remade version and don’t know how to play it, please show them the movie.

About WiiWare version

To be honest, we don’t give up WiiWare version for overseas. It might be not the time to tell that just before releasing PC version. But, we think it’s rude to tell that WiiWare version is released after you buy PC version. So, we want to let you know in advance, “There is a possibility to release WiiWare version.” It will be without the additional download contents. So far, you can’t play Hell temple on WiiWare though, it might be a better option for someone who doesn’t need to play Hell temple or prefers to play on the game console. The plan is proceeding smoothly, but please wait for the […]

Illustrations in the instruction manual

You can see amusing illustrations in places in the instruction manual. These are illustrations that Naramura redrew momo-san’s ones. She is playing the original version’s LA-MULANA and keep a playing journal on her blog. We got her permission for the official guidebook Vol.2 which is also a strategy book. But, as we mentioned last time, it’s impossible to translate it because of too much texts. So, we put some illustrations on the instruction manual because overseas people cannot see them. We wish we could publish our official guidebooks in English… While we are on the subject, we show you some other illustrations that are not able to put in the […]

Instruction Manual

It’s in the middle of festival. Some people might be already over the moon, but still we have some days to go. We can’t move forward the release date, but we publish a instruction manual. Be thrilled with reading this. Actually, we made a strategy guide for WiiWare version in Japanese instead of a instruction manual. And then, we were trying to translate it into English, but we gave up the plan because the texts are too much to translate. So, we have to prepare a instruction manual in English. The instruction manual is like a simplified strategy guide. We made it close to the original version’s instruction manual. Making […]

About Playism

Thank you for a lot of comments. We read them all. Well today, let’s talk about Playism, the platform of PC version. We know many people think “Why isn’t it Steam?” But, it’s difficult for us to tie up with Steam. Because it is a trouble for us to communicate with Steam in English. We don’t want to delay the release because of it. Considering the situation of Japanese indie game industry, we chose Playism. In Japan, download contents is not here to stay. On the other hand, it is here to stay in overseas. We have heard the success story of indie game developer in overseas, however the number […]
