The history approached from video games can go beyond the World Wars, Greek, Egyptian and Norse mythologies, medieval and feudal settlements in Asia. For a long time, it has been thought that elements of pre-Hispanic culture could be very interesting to make a video game and this will come true thanks to the initiative of Mexican Guillermo Alarcón, founder of the Japan-based studio Meta Studios Creative Agency.
Mictlan: a game inspired by pre-Hispanic Mexico
In recent days, the development process of Mictlan: An Ancient Mythical Tale has transcended, an open world, action and adventure game in the third person that will take place in the 16th century during the Conquest period and that will highlight the representation of cities such as Tulum. , Calakmul, Chichén Itzá, Teotihuacán and Tenochtitlán, as well as the relationship with Mictlán, the conception of the underworld of the Mexicas. Also, this game will feature representations of pre-Hispanic deities such as Quetzalcóatl, Tezcatlipoca and Huitzilopochtli.
Through its official accounts on social networks, the development team led by Guillermo Alarcón has shown different elements of his art and design, showing his attention to detail in terms of the environments and an interesting representation of the elements of pre-Hispanic cultures seen from the perspective of a video game.
