    I think my main emotion towards ALttP artstyle is "good but overused". Can't help but think that I would probably enjoy its visual design much more if it wasn't pastiched by hundreds of indie games last decade or so. In general, many classic games (especially from Nintendo's "holy trinity") were victims of miniscule reference pools typical for bedroom developers, but A Link to the Past and Super Metroid suffered from it the worst.

    I feel like you took an insane amount of offense to my post. Yes I don't like ALttP's graphics, looking back. Yes, I prefer somethng colourful and bright such as the minish cap's graphics. Yes, it's down to preference (although, given the "dream" situation going on, bright upbeat Minish colours might even do better, from a logical standpoint). I said what was MY opinion. You asked for our OPINIONS, so dont get pissy when you dont like the answer... You seem very aggressive regarding my opinion, mate.

    I'm interested on how customizable the dungeon editor in the official remake will be?

    why would he reveal the project before having finished it? does he crave attention that much?
    the only thing he'll accomplish by this is getting sued by nintendo, he even showed his face ffs

    And this is why people like Iga and Ifune still make money while these people this and AMR2 will keep getting shut down.

    No, I just passed by and answer questions about our game, and get insulted. We are not a company, just hobbyists who work on this game every now and then, we won't charge people for playing our game if it ever get released someday. We make it just for fun, so we owe nothing to people spending time shitting on us aggressively.

    Anyway, it's just an hobby game project so let's remain friendly. I'll try to be less offended too, sorry for that.

    Someone external to the team began to work on a Minish Cap resource pack, so maybe someday (in 5 years ?) you'll be able to play Link's Awakening with Minish Cap graphics. Please be patient, it's just made on a few people's free time.

    I didnt insult you at all. You're way out of line with your accusations as well as your need to feel offended by what I'd stated.. and yes, you asked about the opinion on graphics. I said no. You got offended when I said minish would be better, "in my opinion". Also, this is an open forum, you posted this publically. Whether you like it or not, you will be getting feedback, whether positive or negative. Chill, guy.

    Plus the official version has a dungeon editor, and the soundtrack is pretty impressive.

    We made a whole game creator available on Windows, Mac, Linux. Check it out: https://www.solarus-games.org/

    Someone in the team is remaking all the GB musics and sounds into SNES-like ones. ;)

    I prefer Minish Cap graphics too. But MC graphics is not what we chose for our little project, for artistic reasons (we chose to go full-SNES mode with cartridge, game manuel, fake vintage magazine ads and all).

    Someday when we feel enough skillfull, we'll make a 100% original game, with custom art. At the moment, we're just training/learning by replicating good games, so please be nice, don't demand what we are not yet able to do yet. ^_^

    Not bad but for me personally as a music composer myself i do agree with the majority of users on here you should of waited until the game was complete and showing your face was a huge mistake. I understand your passion for the project but showing your face when doing this project is like painting a big target on your back. Try and exercise caution in situations like this. Now I realize the likely hood of your project not getting the dmca is very unlikely. My former boyfriend was considering making something like this but using c+ and Unity but it wasn't zelda themed I think it was something close to the mana games but up scaled a bit like octopath traveler.

    So....I guess we aren't getting it....and I guess he isn't, either :creep:

    Seriously, it seems like a good idea. If you speak to him, tell him, "Hey, find a dead IP (like Chuck Rock) and do it justice, please."

    Funny, My ex boyfriend was actually remaking an old Japanese Nes title with updated sprites and I was making the updated music as i can make 16 and 8bit remixes but once we spilt up we decided to cancel the project. And I'm not sex obsessed I'm more into my books and creative art studies.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    I will tell you we had about 40% of the game done I still have what we worked on but I don't want to upload something unfinished.

    only details i'll say is we made two characters each with two jobs to pick from but once you pick one that is locked to your character
    for the male character We had Basara Monks and Youkai Samurai

    Female characters had the choices of Shadow Rouges (assassins) or the Acursed (un-dead Angels).

    The game originally became it's own thing as the nes game we chose changed from a tactical style game to a dungeon rpg style adventure game but to battle the enemy you needed you use your head as the game actually had had a difficulty spike where depending on your choices would determine on how hard the enemies were.

    I agree:creep:
    Seriously, you got some new skills™ and ideas to better yourself, I guess; I'm sure that you're still developing new skills(®), so maybe going solo was meant to be? Or, maybe this isn't your best way to approach life, head-on.

    As for asking my ex on remastering a dead ip we are not what you would call on good terms I got a friend that can do games in the unreal engine but he's currently working on a game already so i dont think he would have time to take another project on

    It's cool--your choices are the decisions you make and I'm okay with it, either way.

    I think the best thing you can do to garner the best response: make a poll for "This needs to be in Unreal Engine!"

    I vote Tetris and/or Bubsy.

    I think there is already a bubsy hd game coming out or is out but then again I tend to only stick to games like strategy/ adventure titles.
