Zelda Universe has been hard at work for years to create a full-fledged 2D Zelda fangame tentatively called Timeless Haven. We’ve released a few downloads in the past and we’re nearing the release of a Beta Demo but we need your help to get there!
Many talented people have put their hand on this project, few as vital as our main programmer Khao who recently got a new full-time job at an indie game developer studio. As such, he won’t be able to devote as much time to the game. The good news is that the engine he made from scratched called “Timeless Engine” is almost complete and has been ported to the Game Maker Studio which will enable us to release the Beta Demo as well as the full game on multiple platforms, something which wasn’t previously an option. Now all that remains is some finishing touches of the engine and then we’re off to assembling the game as it’s been designed on paper.
That’s where you come in! We need talented people with a passion for Zelda that want to help us build this game. First and foremost, we need programmers in Game Maker Studio plus graphic artists/spriters to implement all the content into the game itself. Anyone who’s interested in helping us out should read through the application post here. As part of our team, you’ll get to work with other passionate Zelda fans as we make designs, sprites, music and soon the Beta Demo. You get to set your own weekly deadlines and work at your own pace, though a few hours every week will be necessary as making a game doesn’t happen overnight, nor will it be easy, but we’re determined to make the best Zelda fan game out there.
Don’t believe us? You can find all available information about Timeless Haven, just download the demos and read the application details in the official forum thread. I think you’ll be impressed and see the potential of this work in progress and we hope to have the pleasure of working with some of you!
