If La-Mulana taught me anything, is that you should never forget to bring weights.

I never played La Mulana (a crime, I know), so I have no idea what that means. ._.

It's like Spelunky when it comes to the core concept (ruthlessly difficult old-school indie game about adventurer archeologists), but it's a "metroidvania" kind of game in contrast to Spelunky's roguelike.

...and I've never played it either. I just watched Deceased Crab suffer through it.

I knew the core concept and saw a video or two back in the day.  People compared it and Spelunky quite a lot.

Them pesky boulders.  I seen them many times while playing but I never got hit by one.

As long as you're smart about it, they'll never get ya.

That seems to apply to a lot of things in the game.  Of course it's easier said then done.

I know nothing about the game Spelunky, but I'm still loving this comic. Keep it up!

Glad to hear it!  I'm trying to write it in a way that you wouldn't need to know the game.

Also, by bringing it deeper into the caves, he's probably made it harder for future archaeologists to retrieve it.

(Assuming it's not destroyed by lava when the volcano erupts.)
halibabica's avatar
Hey, who said anything about volcanoes?
Snowyowl0's avatar
The game ends with a volcano erupting, doesn't it? Unless the Hero dies.

Either way, spoiler alert.

I can say with great certainty that the story DOES end, in one way or another.

All things must end, Hali. All things must end.

W-wait!  But you can publish an essay in an academic journal about how this proves there was early contact between Taiwan and wherever this place is!

...granted you'd still be dirt poor but still!

Archaeological significance, or a cheap knock-off?  You decide...
