I always love it when games do something unique with their art direction. And just when you thought that all of the original ideas have been done already, someone comes up with the idea of using classical Greek art to make a 2D platformer.

La-Mulana 2 aims to be more 'intuitive,' still hard as heck

La-Mulana was regarded by some as the hardest game ever. This isn't going to change, though Nigoro's Takami Naramura wants it to be slightly more intuitive so perhaps all those deaths don't lead to warranted frustration and ...more
