If there are any REALLY OLD members left, they may remember talk of this project a long time ago (think several years). Well, then you'd be surprised to know that it still exists! And it's going to look a lot different than you remember.



I've been working on this project off and on for I forget how many years, and it was migrated to a wonderful new engine quite some time ago. The engine is called Solarus (http://www.solarus-games.org) and it was made in C++ specifically to create Zelda-like games. Seriously, check it out, it's sweet.

Book of Mudora itself now contains all functionality, items, maps, etc. that will exist in the final version. This world is huge. There will addition of a few more dungeons, more sidequests, more interesting NPCs, etc. in future versions. But to be clear, this is NOT AN ENGINE DEMO or a vaporware project, this is an almost complete (pre-beta) fan-made Zelda game.

The most recent demo, as well as screenshots and miscellaneous information can be found on the project's website: https://sites.google.com/site/zeldabom/. If you choose to play test the game, please report any issues or bugs to the github tracker at: https://github.com/wrightmat/zbom/issues.

In summary:
  Engine: http://www.solarus-games.org/
  Game Demo: https://sites.google.com/site/zeldabom/demos/
  Github: https://github.com/wrightmat/zbom/



Thanks and happy playing!

Hmm, some of those items sprites look like mine... The Ordon Shield, the Hibiscus...

Interesting way of combining ALttP-like graphics with MC...

I was talking to my friend last night, and he was mentioning about how in 1980, he thought the internet would become this amazing place where people from across the world would share ideas. I was telling him about how this project [KOT] has worked, lurching along for years and drawn by different people from across the globe, and he thought it was beautiful. And he was right, it's awesome. :D

I'm still working on compiling all of the credits, so if anyone else sees anything, let me know.

My intent was to create a unique style by combining LttP and MC and then adding my own twist where needed. It's been difficult to be consistent at times, but I'm glad you like it!

No no, what I was trying to say is, it's working. You actually do a good job at blending the sprite styles together, somewhat. I'm looking forward to this!

Not sure I know what you mean? I was just posting the changes from the previous version I forgot about in case anyone cared. It's a common thing to post changes.

Anywho - version 0.5 is out! This is the full beta, which means that the entire main quest is playable! There will additional side quests and gameplay fixes and such in newer versions, but the main quest is done. Download link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/bwgyk1le4wrkp38/zbom-0.5.zip?dl=0

My brother and I also did a series of play through videos for his YouTube channel, which will be released over the month of November. If you'd like to check them out, they will be release here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChIDVrBTg_haxQ_28jfXqeQ/videos

Hey man! It's good to see you are still working on your project.  You may recall I once made you a title screen a long time ago for your game.  Seems like eons ago xD

Yeah! Thanks!

Sorry for the delay in posting, I kind of forgot about this topic. The good news is that the first full release, version 1.0 of the game will be coming very soon! I'm doing some last minute playtesting and waiting for the next version of the engine to be released. I expect the release date to be by the end of July, so stay tuned!

Anyone who's interested - I've released version 1.0 and consider the game done. Start the countdown to the DMCA take down notice...

Download the game at http://sites.google.com/site/zeldabom/download

It may not be perfect, so feel free to report any issues on the bug tracker that's linked to on the site. I'll update for any bug fixes until the game is inevitably taken down.
