Title: Zelda PC fan game from 1997/98
Post by: Theforeshadower on October 17, 2013, 05:28:28 am
Spent over 2 hours using Google trying to find it.  If any of you know what I am talking about, this was how the game played out:

Made in Klik n PLay
You started out in the Lost Woods.
You had to head to the castle to get the Master Sword(Almost Heros plays in the background via midi file)
You then had to find the 5 Flute(ocarina) songs
The main villain was the Dark Knight
The game ends with Link playing the flute to open a portal to go to another world/dimension(where the Dark Knight went)but a popup chat says "Huh?  Nothing happened."   and the game closes.

It had a good 40+ screens of 640x480 and could be freely traveled to and from.
The sprites were 256color versions of LttP

I cannot remember the guy's name but it was on the titlescreen along with Copyright 1997(could be 98 but sure it said 97).


Just longing for some nostalgia.  It was the first fan game I had ever played other than Mega Man fan games.  Yes, I go back as far as the 90s with my fan gaming.  Most sprites on the net were hand made as emulators were semi-new and all ran in DOS mode so ripping sprites always came out funny.

Anyway, if anyone knows what I am talking about, let me know if you have it or can find it.  SHould just be called "Zelda PC" or "Zelda PC Demo".  I ran over the wayback machine on dekutree.com and zeldapower.com going back all the way to 2000,but turned nothing up(those and zelda64.com were the Zelda sites back then).  Couldn't find it.

Okay, I found one link to it, but the connection to Wayback always cuts the download short

http://web.archive.org/web/20001210160200/http://www.dekutree.com/fanstuff/fangames/ttw.zip

Can someone else download and then upload here to ZFGC, preferably an attachment in this post to verify it's just my shitty mobile connection.  Thanks.

Game was named Legend of Zelda : The Triforce's Two Worlds
Programmer was : Mike Olivigni

Cant find any other places on the net so far.  :<

There was a separate, but similar game called Zelda PC in 97(I believe by the same guy).

It was a slow download, the last 30kb took a few minutes, but I have attached it to this post for you.
But I hope you have more luck opening it, I get an error that is not a complete archive.

Yeah, I am thinking internet archive cut off the last 30KB of data on the zip archive as it was archiving dekutree.com.
It is supposed to be just over 1,050KB in size.  The final 30 KB is always missing.

On a lighter side, if any of you are interested in how fangames were back then, just out zeldapower.com and the fan game section.
Download Twist if Fate, Next Generation, and the other fan game by KoH.  Fan gaming was a different breeed back then.

I just saw this.
I can't find the fangame section on the site you linked?
*Is hoping that it isn't bad to have replied here*

Enjoy trying to get downloads.  One of the downloads is so old it wont run on any Windows newer than XP.

Um, was referring to the zeldapower ones. The one topic on the forum that I saw didn't have what you'd mentioned.
Thanks though!

:P Only got a couple of them to work. No results for Triforce of Two Worlds because ALBW.
Funny thing you should mention Windows XP, there might be a spare machine or two with XP. For whatever reason, desktops don't last so long here.
