I’ve gotten a few cool answers from people to my question about what makes the Zelda series special to them »here« (Would love more!)
I probably should give my answer too since I’m working on this short film.
Working in game development, I can typically see right through the way a game works. Games have lost a little magic because I can see behind the curtain. I’m drawn to the Zelda series because they maintain their magic. I can still see how things function, but it’s constructed in such a charming and mysterious way that it always feels like there’s more - there’s something left to discover.
And the rest. The music is beautiful and moving, especially all of the fully orchestrated stuff. The convincing atmosphere and story of these three intertwined souls destined to be reincarnated as different people who must fulfill their role.
It’s fascinating and beautiful and reminds me why I’m in game development in the first place.
Working on the Link short film, it’s a question I think about a lot, but haven’t discussed with other people that much. What do you think?
