Chihuahua Studio Draws on Indigenous Mythology for Action-Adventure Game Mulaka

Dive into northern Mexico's breathtaking landscapes with Mulaka, a 3D action-adventure game based on the rich indigenous culture of the Tarahumara (Nintendo)

For Mexican game development studio Lienzo, indigenous imagery, mythology and music are important components of their upcoming 3D action-adventure game, Mulaka. The studio, which operates in the state of Chihuahua, is scheduling the game for an early 2018 release on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Mulaka borrows artistic themes from the Chihuahua-native Tarahumara (or Rarámuri) people to continue the studio’s goal of making an impact on audiences with high quality experiences. One of Lienzo’s cofounders, Edgar Serrano, spoke about the game’s cultural background:

“You don’t always have to do something to do with Vikings and ninjas and samurai,” said Serrano. “There’s more to Earth. Not only Tarahumaras, of course, but a lot of cultures have the same potential to reach that level of stardom.”

Serrano also mentioned the importance of accurately portraying the Tarahumara culture, which inlcluded working with both Tarahumara leaders and anthropologists to create an authentic experience. The game features dialogue in the Tarahumara’s language, music created with indigenous instruments and environments based on northern Mexican landscapes, such as the Sierra Tarahumara.

Mulaka‘s development and eventual multi-platform release has created a sense of Mexican pride for some gamers, while others are calling for other developers to tell more diverse stories.
