You are Tarahumara, a tribe of indigenous people of northern Mexico. You are Sukuruame, Tarahumara shaman, and your mission is… To do shamanic things? Pretty obvious, but interesting.
The Tarahumara have been called super athletes, superhumans, and even the greatest race the world has ever seen. All because of one thing: their running.
This was a topic of bestselling book “Superathletes”, “Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen” and “‘Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe”, all Christopher McDougall’s work. That Men’s Health journalist created a revolution in running world and the video game is just a new chapter in his lifework.
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.
Lienzo, as the game developer, made a huge gesture for the tribe. 10 percent of all earnings will go to Tarahumara’s preservation.
The game is fascinating if we trust first critics. By that, expectations are big. As from the gamers, as from the tribe people.
