Hopefully this project will neither become abandoned, like a couple of attempts before it, nor shut down by Nintendo. The Legend of Zelda: OoT2D is an unofficial, fan-made game for the PC that takes the story and design of Ocarina of Time and builds it around A Link to the Past's artistic design. The most interesting part, for me, is how they will redesign the puzzles and dungeons into a different basis. I would like to compare all three games, Ocarina of Time, A Link to the Past, and the fan-made 2D OoT remake.
The team built their own engine for this game. To preserve the pixelation, you can use the escape key to select from one of four sizes that prevent art pixels from being spilled between physical ones, creating a blur. The UX is a bit counter-intuitive, but they offer a lot of the customization that PC gamers would love.
The game is not done yet, but a demo is provided. I tried it. It works.
Just tried it after the live
Just tried it after the live stream. Looks cool, but it’s just a mechanics demo, find the sword cut the grass that’s it. Looks cool but lets see if it ever gets finished, ALTHO I used to say the same thing about the earthbound 3/mother 4 project and it’s done, final testing now ready to d/l “winter 2014” and that took years and years, so who knows.
I guess I was just hoping to kill a little time with this one
Really cool brings back fond
Really cool brings back fond memories thx Scott
Nintendo could make it like
Nintendo could make it like minecraft, but with some form of reasonable licensing/revenue system, and give the server hosts a franchise like agreement, and allow them to offer anyone the opportunity to create custom game scenarios. Look at the minecraft economy, you know that is what M$ is thinking, but having the games that are most popular, with a large fan base creating their own story arcs, could possibly make more revenue, than the original. Nintendo could still come out with the big high quality versions, and people will still buy, but why not make a lot of popular games, with their own officially supported fan driven ecosystems. Just Limit the types of intrusive Ad/other income systems that are really ruining the web, but allow some form of franchise type of server hosting, and reasonable revenue stream for the people who invest time and money into the hosting server systems, and standard rules so that anyone with a franchise license follows strict rules on how they treat their clients, no ripoffs.
