La-Mulana explores Steam on April 15

After making it through the Steam Greenlight gauntlet back in January, the remake of La-Mulana is finally ready to launch through Steam on April 15. The punishing cave-em-up – not to be confused with that other one – will set wannabe adventurers back $15, but if you pre-order through Steam they can knock 10 percent off that price.

The Steam version of La-Mulana is based on the WiiWare remake, which took an inordinate amount of time to make its way onto Nintendo's digital distribution service, even being totally scrapped at one point. The Steam version also includes the WiiWare version DLC "Hell Temple" and supports USB game pads, including Xbox 360 controllers.%Gallery-183618%
