Welcome to Let's Play La Mulana 2
La Mulana is an action adventure game that I normally describe as a mash up between a metroidvania game and Myst. It's full of obnoxious jumping and whipping at too god damn many enemies and puzzles that make absolutely no sense (except they really do and you feel inadequate and stupid when you realize).
This is the sequel to the first game which I also did an LP of, you can find it on the LP archive if you care to watch it. This is a direct continuation of the story but I'll be covering what happened and the world-lore as it's appropriate so it's not strictly necessary viewing material.
The puzzles in this game, and the first, are devilish and the primary goal of this LP is to give you as sensible an explanation and guide to the game as I can muster. I'm going to be doing alot of editing to try and wrangle this open-ended puzzle-solving experience into as clear and concise a line as possible. If you played the game yourself and are curious just how you were supposed to know why that random thing you did actually solved a puzzle, this is the spot for you.
The LP itself
I'll be posting about once per week, maybe twice if the video is particularly short, and aiming for somewhere in the 30-40 minute video length. Each post will also be accompanied by whatever glossary entries we've run into for that video, split into the post below the update video so people don't get spoiled. Not much more to it than that, this game is one dense piece of work so we'll have alot to cover each video.
The second post is going to be a (constantly updated) collection of the entire gallery, I wouldn't really consider them spoilers per se, since knowing we're going to run into bats and rabbits with wings isn't a huge problem, but if this thread has been open for awhile and you're brand new maybe skip over that part if you don't want to see. I'll make sure it lags behind the first few updates to keep anybody from accidentally seeing it while the thread is still only 1 page.
