The Tarahumara was a powerful and dangerous tribe who occupied most of northern Mexico. Contrary to popular belief, they were conflictive and skilled warriors. There’s evidence of them clashing with Apaches, Conchos and other tribes, but never conquered by them. When the Jesuits arrived and started colonizing, they ran into 100 years of bloody conflict before being able to settle. The Tarahumara still live and have adapted to the modern world fairly well. They still have many of their ancient rites, myths and customs, but have mixed the catholic religion with their own. One can meet them face to face every day in the state of Chihuahua, and also see them living in the same prehistoric natural way scattered along the beautiful Sierra.
Mulaka is being 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 Rarámuri dialogue. We have as well the assistance and guidance of our friend and collaborator Enrique Servín, poet and cultural expert, winner of the "Andrés Henestrosa" International Prize of Myth, Story and Legend. Also, Mulaka is backed economically and culturally by ICHICULT (Chihuahua Institute of Culture) and the YOREME fund. Everything has been done so you can experience the power and adventurous history of this culture.
