Let's Play La-Mulana

posted by ならむら

しっかりしたサイトを作ろうとすると言葉尻まで丁寧に検証したり、普段作らないような事務的なページの文章まで考えたりと大変ですが、こんばんわ。

おじさんはもう、若い人の音楽にはついていけません。ここ数年、新たに気にいったアーティストなどいませんからCDも買いません。ちょっと前のリメイクブームで昔のバンドの再結成ラッシュのときは楽しかったですけど。
でも作業中無音なんて死ねと言われている気がするので何か流す訳ですが、iTunesの中は飽きるぐらい聞いたものばかり。ということで映像を流す事が多いです。手持ちのDVD流したり。ライブビデオや、WINKのプロモーションDVDとか、仕事で絡んだドラマのDVDとか、アニメのDVD全話ノンストップだったり。最近見つけたのが、タイトルにある映像。

ここに書く話じゃないのかもしれませんが、LA-MULANAを作って、評価を聞くまでは実感しましたが、人が遊んでいる所ってのはなかなか見る事はないです。ところがYoutubeのおかげでこれも実感出来ました。LA-MULANAは有志のおかげで英語版が出まして、海外の方じゃ今がお楽しみ絶頂期みたいです。Youtubeで"LA-MULANA"と検索すると、LA-MULANAの通しプレイを公開し続けている人が数人います。すごいパワーですな。中でも楽しいのがタイトルに書いたLet's Play La-Mulanaシリーズ。遊んでいる人のナレーション付です。一人でやっているだろうに、テンションたけぇっす。
遊び方から見て、もう数周はクリアしていそうな手際よさがありながら、子供の宝を失敗してため息ついてたり、ティアマトにやられて"Nooooo!!!!!"って叫んだり。英語でも見てて楽しいです。ティアマト戦ではわざわざBGMの音量を下げて、MIDI版MP3をバックに楽しそう闘ってます。これを流しながら作業に没頭中です。
これ、現在進行中で、ティアマト、パレンケを倒してのこるはくさびのみ。最新版はむきメモをやって、
「Wow,SNATCHER!!!She is crazy!!」と叫んだり、エラーで止まった後にため息&舌打ちコンボしてます。
全部見ようとしたら大変ですが、なかなか楽しいので皆様も一度ぐらいどーですか。

If you're interested, here's the original thread on Something Awful that contains the Let's Play video segments. (I post in the thread too...I made some artwork of La-Mulana, actually! If you come across it, I hope you like it. But if you would like for me to post it here, I'll do that too.)

We are all big fans of the game, and especially the soundtrack. Mukimuki Memorial was very funny, too--everyone was surprised by the "SNATCHERS!!"

I'd just like to thank you guys for making La-Mulana. It's an awesome game. I really enjoy it (as you've probably noticed), and I'm definitely looking forward to your next works.

Although I complain about the difficulty during the video, I am glad that you made it that way. I would prefer that a game be challenging and long than short and easy.

Also, you did an amazing job with the music. I'm just sorry AQUA WISH didn't make it into the game as a background music. I heard a lot of the prototype music using the Jukebox, and I'd say you guys are up there with Capcom and Konami when it comes to music.

So, I really like your game. Thank you, and please keep making them!

Oh, and I hope you enjoy the Let's Play.

I am happily looking at the playing movies.
I am loved my work like this and am happy.
The scene at which it feels bitter because you raise the voice is a place where we will exactly surprise and made you.
The user in Japan is looking at youtube well. Your play might be seen, and there be a person who plays "LA-MULANA" again.
Will all idle man be MSX users in foreign countries as for "LA-MULANA"?

Hey, I just wanted to apologize if I said anything that made you angry or annoyed.

I realize that I got a little upset at La-Mulana a couple times while playing it, and may have said some hurtful things, maybe about you, maybe about the MSX, maybe about other stuff.
I must confess that I didn't expect that many people would watch the Let's Play, and never expected many people outside the U.S. would watch it.

I apologize for making jokes or unfair remarks about the MSX, you game developers, foreign countries, or anything else. I did not mean to offend anyone.
I also apologize for my difficulty in understanding you. I hope you realize I didn't mean any harm, and just wanted to show people your game so that they could enjoy it.

Hi, DeceasedCrab.
I'm Samieru.

NARAMURA has been working hard for "Death Village" and our new site.
It's coming very soon.

But Death Village is the trial version.
To tell the truth, the trial version existed also in La-mulana. It was in 2002.
The trial version of La-mulana only had the first stage. No shops, No Jungles, No waters.
The trial version of Death Village only has NORMAL GAME. Moreover, it is not complete.
The complete version will have the most important function of this project. But it still takes time.
Please look forward.

Do you like AQUA WISH?
AQUA WISH was for the first water area. This is a NRAMURA's music.

But In the last stage of sure development. NARAMURA said "Unmmmm.... I don't like it. It doesn't have melodies".

And, the new song was made.
Curse of Iron pipe. It's my tune.
It has the same part as theme of ASHGUINE. Fish men have a iron pipe on their body. It is same as ASHGUINE. They are jokes.

Well, I got a message from NARAMURA to DeceasedCrab.

"Don't worry. We enjoyed your video very much. It had a hearty laugh because of your reaction caught to the trap. Your reaction was the same as our expectation. It was a significant thing for us.

And... Thank you for playing our game! "

Oh, I have to go back to my work.

See you!

Hello,

I am a MSX user since 1986 and I think La Mulana has the pure esence of MSX games. It is like a Konami game but better. I hope someday I can play La Mulana on a cartridge in my MSX.

Thank you for this incredible game!

Greetings,

Oscar
