Lamulana is a game where half-Japanese Indiana Jones goes into a temple for worshipping a lovecraftian elder god. He stays in there for months upon end and teleporting is the LEAST weirdest thing he has to do every few minutes.
Lamulana is a game where you MUST, and I mean MUUUUUUUST, write down EVERY glyph you find and EVERY conversation you have with a dead skeleton lying on the ground on a sheet of paper and tape it all onto the walls. Yes, your real, physical walls. Arrange them into a map based on WHERE in the La-Mulana ruins you found each note. Ready some strings and pins because you're going to need to make arbitrary connections with two notes in entirely different locations with possible relations.
Oh, the La-Mulana ruins? It's non-euclidean. That means it's full of distorted/repeating space connected by portals all over the place that doesn't make any sense at all. It drives a lesser man insane. BUT NOT YOU. NO. You note that all down, too! Oh, and you want to be able to fold each area so it'll become a 5x4 square, btw. Don't think about it too hard. Just keep that in the back of you're head because you're going to need it at the end game. Just saying, every area in the game might be shaped like a 4D donut with varying directions of gravity.
I went and took a sheet of paper and listed every lamulanese characters and its english equivalent. It took forever and I have no idea why I have no life and am such a loser. I was actually having fun. What is wrong with me. I learned to write an entirely fictional language.http://i.imgur.com/WNFxC2s.jpg
(Me decyphering ancient tablets by hand.)
I disabled the glyph reader. It's a waste of virtual MSX laptop's memory. I can just read it right off the tablet. Both normal and inverted.
tl;dr La-Mulana is a pretty hard game, but you'll have so much fun pushing yourself to survive it all.
