Protip: You can't.

Will the sequel be good?

I hope, 2014 was an awfull year for videogames

>>283550791

I was playing on hard without a guide, and I was beating all of the bosses without subweapons, but shit got too real for me around the eyeball boss and I haven't gone back to it yet. I forget exactly what he does but hitting him with just the standard weapons is a bitch.
>>
>>283550791
I got stuck on the minecart bossfight and stopped playing.

That was a year or so ago. I haven't really felt like picking it back up. Great soundtrack and a fun game. I kept a guide handy and it didn't diminish my enjoyment of it.

However the guide can't help me get gud against that boss. That's all me and I just stopped bothering after awhile.

That's actually one of the easier bosses.

Also notice how in this shot the tablet is a different color and it shows Mulbruk's face up top. I guess we're getting multiple playable characters after all.
>>
>>283550791

I'm so sad. When I first played this game, I actually had beaten about 4 bosses before I found the "first" boss and got the holy grail. Fuck. Running back up to the surface every time.
>>
>>283550791
I did, took like 50 hours even with a map guide

fucking obtuse late-game puzzles
and don't even give me that "why didn't you craft your own meticulous map of every zone and write down where all the tablets were and what they said"

that's some fucking horse shit

I'm not sure if that's supposed to be "skill", "skull", or if "skall" is the actual name for something in the game.

Puzzles became too bullshit for me. I dropped it after getting like, really close to the end.

>>283552725

holy grail isn't unlocked after a boss.
>>
>>283552725
I did too but I still ended up beating it. I remember getting stuck after killing the minecart boss without the holy grail
>>
>>283553280

You can't find the first boss without finding the holy grail I thought.
>>
>>283553460
You can get all the way to the final boss without ever picking up the grail, but you can't start the final battle without it.

because there has never been a bigger or better example of the "emperor's new clothes" in the entire existence of the /v/ petri dish

Mulana was fucking shovelware from the first day it was released, however many years ago, and you imbeciles have successfully fallen prey to the 'im so sophisticated that I play this very important and excellent game' when in reality you're slurping diarrhea up through a straw

look at this picture, another piece of shovelware called legacy of the wizard on NES. during the C64 days, there was one called Montezuma's Revenge-THESE ARE NOT GOOD GAMES
>>
>>283553460
If I recall correctly (it's been like two years since I played the first area), the grail is unlocked by a pressure plate after a secret passage. So I'm guessing no, the boss and the grail do not affect each other.
>>

>legacy of the wizard on NES
thanks for the recc, anon <3

>>283553643
Is this one of those heretics that /tg/ is always talking about?

I like the original more than the remake.
Also I hope the sequel has less bullshit puzzles.
>>
When I had to go to level four to find a clue about getting to the first boss, I realised the game was not for me, yet decided to keep playing it... only to be repelled by the absolutely atrocious air-control, turning jumps into a nightmare.

I hope the sequel will have as good an OST.

And I also hope it won't have any bullshit parts like the entrance to the goddess tower.

>>283554373
Supposedly they aren't going to hide what puzzles do anymore, so if something changes in another room it'll show it to you.
>>
>>283553643

You didn't actually give a single reason why La Mulana is bad.

Man, fuck Viy, that cunt is awful even on normal.
Hardmode without subweapons is just painful

i hate you.

>Hit a switch somewhere
It's time to check the whole dungeon AGAIN to check what has changed!

Usually I'm the first one to complain about games being casualized, but this game really needs to be a little more accesible.
>>
>>283554491
That's a godsend considering some puzzles did minor stuff in completely different areas of the temple from certain puzzles.
People will find a way to bitch about it.
>>
>>283550791
i got stuck somewhere after hall of giants(?) and then just sort of stopped playing. that was a year ago so i'll probably try again from the start eventually..
>>
>>283553643
>look at this picture, another piece of shovelware called legacy of the wizard on NES
Confirmed for baiting.
>>
>>283554491
I'll be OK with this as long as it's a piece of in-game software and not just built into the game.
>>
>>283552662
So the tablet can save pictures of the rooms now too? Can we build maps with those pictures?

>Kill Fish Boss
>Look every fuckin where
>Give up and go look on a guide
>There was an alternative world on the surface (which makes no sense by the game rules) but there was no closed door previous to that

I know you after you kill him you theoretically have to go throught the area, but it's normal to have been throught that before and just warping. Plus from what i read on a guide, it seems you need to kill 3 or 4 boss for the alternative world door to open

>MFW the Mario puzzle to flood the tower

And that's when i said fuck it, i'm reading guides whenever i get stuck for 20min.

The game has some retarded puzzles and what the post quoted said, but it's still a great game.

Fuck yeah, La Mulana thread. Really don't see enough of these.

Favorite soundtracks?

I don't think you can place for a physical copy anymore.

Honestly I got sick of having to read a walkthrough for everything. What I played was fun but it was just too much work. The physics were frustrating too. Maybe I'll try again later.
>>
>>283556362
>>283556362
Well can you ask the devs on that forum thing you guys have access to?

You can send an e-mail to PLAYISM with that question. It'd be more direct, since that's probably what they would tell me to tell you.

I really wanted physical La-Mulana 1, so I dropped I think the most I've ever dropped for vidya.

I hope and pray it's awesome; though I haven't seen any warning signs yet. Loving the new levels so far.

Why do you care if they reached it or not?

We're getting it, regardless of what the implications are, we're getting what we prior thought we weren't going to get.

That is fucking amazing.
>>
>>283558279
Eh, Linux and mac were also behind stretch goals and now they decided to port the game to unity, so I guess we're getting them one way or another
>>
>>283558438
Nice. I thought about getting that one too, but in the end I settled on the artwork.
>>
I tried to do it blind and it wasn't very fun.

Those who beat it, did you just fumble around for hours on end, or did you use a guide?
>>
>>283550791
I played and beat it but i'm pretty sure it beat me more

what a completely unforgiving clusterfuck of a game
>>
>>283558794
I honestly had to look up a guide for shit like the dimensional key and the hell temple.
>>
>>283558794
If anyone here tells you they didn't use a guide, they're lying. Or autists.
One of the puzzles is so bullshit there's no conceivable way to figure that one out on your own.
>>
>>283558794
>did you just fumble around for hours on end
Mostly this, but there was a bunch of shit I picked up on that I always see people get stuck on in threads. Like summoning the last of Tiamat's children and getting through the Gate of Illusion.
>>
>>283559091
this
99% of people who played la mulana used a guide

we're going to find out exactly how many liars we have here once the sequel is out for a week and nobody has made it past boss #2
>>
>>283558794
everyone looked up a guide the clues and puzzles werent exactly user friendly but when i looked up the guide i felt bad because the solutions seemed pretty easy

anyway i had to look up solutions for the temple of illusion since i am a 'fool' by nature

also yea i did faff about for hours on end but those hours seemed to melt away since i was enjoying myself
>>
>>283550791
It was supposed to come out for vita and I've been waiting for that. I don't think I would have much motivation to sit infront of my PC playing it. It would be perfect on the go.
>>
>>283558794
I read the manual, then fumbled around each area writing down every note I saw. After about 8 hours, I had three areas beaten and access to the dark-side. I'm geniunely bad at video games though, as I left the grail until I had beaten 4 areas and gotten double jump.

I beat it without a guide except for the "life dance" puzzle, which I knew what to do but was doing it in the wrong spot. I didn't 100 percent it by a long shot, so I never got the super whip or finished the super dungeon. I clocked in at about 36 hours total.

I hope we will have quality threads, considering the player base is pretty small and mostly older people compared to other games' player bases.

I was maybe the first person to upload it somewhere else for /v/ but I've only played it for 30 minutes

>>283560662
That scream as the illusion dissipated was just so good. Easily the best area in the game.
>>
>>283560232
I'm stupid as shit and autistic enough to play for hours on end. I'm sure if nothing else people will probably die laughing seeing screens (or streams I guess) of me going up a brick wall over and over again expecting a different result.

Should be a fun ride.
>>
I beat it and hell temple and I never want to replay it or play the sequel.
>>
>>283561580
The sequel could be something else entirely.

The demo they showed isn't being used at all so anything could happen.
