In order to arrive to the Kokiri Forest, Link will have to cross the Forest Maze. This place is created by the Forest Cog, and once Link gets it, he won't have to cross it again. Is an ilussion created by the Kokiri Magic to protect the cog.

The maze will be a long and A LOT of dead ends, in which there probably will be monsters.

Interesting idea, reminds me of the Lost Woods.  Could you sketch out a layout?

Sorry, I don't have plenty of time now. It's a sketch done with paint. Green things are trees the player won't be able to walk across. I'll try to work it tomorrow.

Cool, I can see this being pretty cool once we add some overlay effects and such in game.  I think there need to be more dead ends that aren't on the edge of the map though.

we can always grab one screen and make it a lost woods type area, depending on how you go you will have to restart over again.
in some maps you might get the next areas locked and some enemies spawned, or a small mini puzzle. that way them ap will be smaller : )

The Lost Woods the only thing that they have is about the sound you must hear to get to the place. It's not that hard. I can make it bigger, it was a quick skectch.

Well, that's the point. The maze was done to protect the cog. When Link gets the cog, the illusion of the Forest Maze will dissapear.

I was thinking in a possible sidequest related to make a forest grow, for the Deku to live there too. Link is rewarded with a piece of heart after achieving this.

Yea, I meant what would replace it haha.  Turning it into a simple location for a sidequest sounds like a good idea.

Okay, I kinda mixed about it.

1) The GDD already mentions that you need to cross the Deku Swamp to get into the Kokiri forest. So this would clash.

2) If it is long and a lot of dead ends then it would take up a lot of room on the world map. At least it would be large enough to consider it the world map design. We could make it that it all happens during a transition from the swamp to the forest, but then it can't be turned into a grassland overworld area with sidequests.



My advice: Do not make this a new area that is not in the GDD. Make this as the concept for Kokiri Forest itself. You have the maze that leads to the dungeon and once you get the cog it turns into a regular forest. And all the other stuff will become available such as Syrup's potion shop.

Is already part of the Kokiri Forest. Do you remember from OoT, the village? It'd be something like that: when Link first crosses the area, it will be an ilussion; when Link gets the cog, the illusion will dissapear. This ilussion was active as long the cog wasn't retrieved. After that, a sidequest related with the king of the deku will  make some deku appear her. At the beginning, it'll have a couple of shops, and some trees growing, but as long Link keeps helping the king, more deku will arive and begin bussines and that. To explain it better, have you played Pokemon Black or White? In the White Forest/Black City, you needed to get people to make the grass grow, and buildings to appear. Something like that will be here. The king will tell you to do something, and then another thing, and then another, and like that, until the town thrives. Of course, this side will require of completing some other temples.

I see this as kind of a link between the swamp and the forest.
