Introduction



What is La Mulana?

In short it's an action platformer with a heavy emphasis in puzzles and riddles. You play as not-Indiana Jones looking for your father in the ancient ruins of La Mulana. It starts off innocently enough with the only plot hook being 'search for Dad' but it expands more on this as it goes. Notably however the game is balls to the wall difficult in the puzzles that it expects you to solve. I don't know anybody who has 100% beat the game without the help of walkthroughs though I'm sure within 10 posts somebody will show up to talk about how they totally did.

The reason I'm doing this LP is that this is one of my favorite games of all time, one of those games that the second I played it I knew I had to LP it. When I beat the game in the first place I used a guide for much of it and often times just following what the guide told me to do I had no idea how I was supposed to figure out this stuff on my own. So I went back through the game again and this time just tried to figure out why i was doing the things I needed to do. This turned out to be as much, if not more, fun than the first playthrough, so I decided that a proper LP should not just show off the game but the way you are actually meant to solve the challenges it throws at you.

With no further ado here is La Mulana

Hard Mode

My friend Olesh decided that he would do some hardmode videos to show the difference between the two.

Note from Olesh: Unfortunately, in 2017 the Youtube account associated with these videos was silently terminated by Youtube without explanation or warning, and I no longer have the originals or any way to recover the videos, so the Hard Mode videos have been lost to time. Sorry!
