Indeed it is impressive. I’m not sure how many of you know about this project either. Come on in, and gather ‘round!
King Mob a dude on the forums over at ZFGC.com has been working on a Zelda game for 3 years now, give or take a month. I encourage you to go and take a look at everything he has going on, because it looks amazing, like the next best thing to a real Nintendo produced Zelda game.
This game is called The Legend of Zelda: The Shadowgazer and is made with what looks like Minish Cap graphics. There are 2 demos available and a trailer.
I’m not 100% sure, but I think 3 years might make King Mob the most dedicated Zelda fan game developer… ever. So why don’t you go over to the ZFGC forum and congratulate him on how awesome he’s doing (if you indeed think he’s doing awesome) and also congratulate him for going 3 years strong, he deserves it. I’m sure he could use some encouragement too, everyone who takes on such a big task could use it.
King Mob has created some fantastic ideas, and characters, I almost wish that he would get signed… or hired… or whatever they do, by Nintendo. This game makes me think of Majora’s Mask, but instead of being a sequel to OoT, it’s a sequel to MC (so it seems, don’t quote me on that one). He has instilled a 3-day cycle (that also includes night and day, of course) but at the end it just starts over again instead of a moon destroying the world. This 3-day cycle gives us a routine to follow for the NPCs in the game. He has also added a horseback combat system, I can’t say how well it works, because I haven’t tried it, but he says it works swimmingly. You can find out more at the 2 sites that are linked.
Theres also a ton of other zelda fangames being worked on with news on ZFGC, check them out. Some people are so talented…
Until next time… I remain
