Guacamelee! draws inspiration from traditional Mexican culture and folklore to deviver a unique story campaign that compliments the game's enterprising gameplay.
The game follows the adventures of a down-on-his-luck Mexican called Juan Aguacete, a member of a small Mexican village who finds an epic mission thrust upon him when El Presidente's daughter is kiidknapped by the Evil Charro, an undead skeleton called Carlos Calaca.
But Guacamelee! isn't just a cliched story of 'saving the world' with a deadbeat redeeming himself. Juan soon finds himself switching dimensions whilst on his quest to save the girl of his dreams, adding a unique twist and complication to the traditional storyline. You will frequently flip between 'The Living World' and 'The Dead World'.
