Video Game Cheats 'n Beatums #9: La Mu-HUH-na

What am I supposed to do in this game?

Article by KC Green, .

Video Game Cheats 'n Beatums is a weekly webcomic by contributor KC Green. Check out the rest of the archive here.

Please someone tell me what to do. There are no cheats, and I don't think anyone has actually beaten La Mulana before, but the developer keeps putting out new and different versions of it, and I keep buying it. I'm lost, I'm just LOST. Please, someone page my mom, her name is Marcia and I'm going to start crying real soon. Oh god...

KC Green is probably playing a weird indie game right now instead of working on his adaptation of Pinocchio or writing the comic BACK. He currently lives in Western Massachusetts in the snow where he makes comics and writes these bios.

    The best part is that this is not out of character for Xelpud at all.

    I will never understand the appeal of games that are so obtuse that they require an internet walk through to complete.

    I played about 4hrs of La Mulana, got stuck multiple times, put it down and have never looked back. The appeal of this game literally mystifies me.Edited March 2015 by Voncaster

    I think La Mulana was intended to be played by a collective of people sharing discoveries and progress, like P.T. or the "good" ending on FNAF3. Many of the puzzles have actual answers, but discovering the question to that answer is also really really hard.

    Now, for the life of me, could someone explain to me the process which I would have to use to find out the rooms to use the mantras to put the wedges in the map to open the Mother?
