La-Mulana 2 is Already Halfway To Its Kickstarter Goal

The Kickstarter for the sequel to Japanese developer Nigoro’s freeware darling platformer La-Mulana started 2 days ago.  Now, La-Mulana 2 is already halfway to its Kickstarter goal, with more than $100,000 already pledged.  Though the game is set to follow Lumisa Kosugi, the daughter of the original game’s protagonist, Lemeza Kosugi, Nigoro is adamant that experience with the first game is not necessary to enjoy the sequel.

La-Mulana was first released in 2005 as a freeware homage to the Japanese MSX operating system, particularly to 1987’s The Maze of Galious.  In 2011 the game was remade and released on Wiiware in Japan, then ported to the PC in 2012 and released internationally, where it has received considerable acclaim.

A remake of the first La-Mulana is available for $14.99 on Steam and DRM-free on Good Old Games.
