Tokyo Game Show 2016

Of course, we are going to exhibit in Tokyo Game Show 2016.

We have got a bigger booth that we can prepare 2 playable machines since LA-MULANA 2 is getting close to completion. We are planning that right side is for people who say “Let me try a little bit.”, and left side is for people who say “Let me take time.” Because some of our visitors are sticking our booth for long time or coming back again and again until they beat a boss.

Anyway, finally you can fight against a guardian on the latest playable machine. The guardian is really fresh, newly created one which “haven’t adjust difficulty for many people” and I think “that would be no problem”. Hope you enjoy it. First 15 players who beat the guardian, Fafnir, on public days can get a mini poster. But I think some mini posters would be remaining after all.

This is the mini poster. The illustration is the latest one that I actually requested long time before. The logo is brand-new. We have some stickers, too. We welcome your challenge to get this illustration at Indie Game Area in Tokyo Game Show. I, Naramura, will be staying at NIGORO booth all the time because everyone is crazy about VR.

Mac version’s LA-MULANA

Today, we announce Mac OS version’s LA-MULANA which was prepared for Humble Bundle sale is officially released on Steam.

To be honest, there was no plan to port into Mac OS, so we did outsource the development.
We understand the quality isn’t perfect despite it took long time.
There might be some glitches compare to the windows version.
But we call it official version, because we don’t have much time to refine it any more.

That is the reason why LA-MULANA2 is being made by Unity that is capable for multi-platforms.
NIGORO games will not give up Mac users from now on!

Can’t you believe it?

I am a longtime Apple user since Power Macintosh 7500.

A long-awaited dream

l1ost

La-Mulana Original Sound Track was special price with La-Mulana itself on Steam.
Regarding the OST, my long time dream that I had almost given up comes true.

Now, it is available on iTunes Store!!
La-Mulana (Original Soundtrack) by NIGORO on iTunes

It is also available on some other music distribution services like Google Play.
NIGORO: La-Mulana (Original Soundtrack) – Music on Google Play
Amazon.com: La-Mulana (Original Soundtrack): NIGORO: MP3 Downloads

And then, I can finally delete enormous mp3 data of the OST from my computer.

This is definitely a good option for the people who wanna listen the OST on iPhone, who hesitate to buy it at Bandcamp and who don’t listen music on steam.

A HAPPY NEW YEAR LA-MULANESE!!

20160101

Thank you for playing our games and supporting us.
The latest alpha version of LA-MULANA 2 is released for our backers.
We suppose it became more “LA-MULANA-like“ than former alpha versions.

LA-MULANA 2 will be released in this year, so please wait for it with laid-back attitude.
We appreciate your continuous support.

A traditonal event

2015 is about to come to an end.

We’ve tried implying progress to everyone via KickStarter updates or at event venues. Some people who’ve known NIGORO since long ago guessed what we meant. LA-MULANA 2 won’t be released in this year. We are sorry about that, but it’s impossible.

After our KickStarter project concluded, we spent about one year while we did major revisions for events and worked on the PS Vita version. In addition, we had many turns and twists until we ultimately decided to shift to Unity environment.

Thanks to that decision, porting into consumer platforms will go smoothly after the PC version is released.

Since this project was made possible through Kickstarter, it’s only fair that we must announce this information to Kickstarter backers first. Additionally, we’re working hard on this project so as to not repeat our wrongdoing such as when we developed the WiiWare version of LA-MULANA. We claimed “We will have done it in a half year!”, after that we kept apologizing for one year, and then we kept silent for the next year.

We will disclose game contents as soon as we prepare a website for LA-MULANA 2 in 2016.

So, when will we finish up LA-MULANA 2?
We don’t wanna spend one more year, but we don’t think it will be released in a few months.

We might publish it as an advance release when we finished the part of the main story, which we actually did before working as NIGORO. But, we’ll never release it until we ensure the quality that is appropriate for the name “LA-MULANA 2.”

Development takes priority over anything else, so we can’t take much time to do public relations and update official website because we are a very small team. We are sorry for inconvenience.

We are working so hard to accomplish La-MULANA 2 that convinces everyone. We appreciate your patience.
