Inspired by Anita Sarkeesian’s Video Game Tropes vs Women, I wanted to pitch a Zelda game where Zelda herself was the hero, rescuing a Prince Link.
Clockwork Empire is set 2,000 years after Twilight Princess, and is not a reboot, but simply another iteration in the Zelda franchise. It just so happens that in this case, Zelda is the protagonist. I’m a very big Zelda fan, and worked hard to draw from key elements in the continuity and mythos.
This concept work is meant to show that Zelda as a game protagonist can be both compelling and true to the franchise, while bringing new and dynamic game elements that go farther than being a simple gender swap.
Hope you like it!
I want to play it so bad.
Meeeee toooooo. It’s not even like “Oh in this one you get to play as Zelda” (which would be an awesome selling point), it’s a sincerely cool sketch of a game in its own right.
We’re opening up a new shop here at Arda HQ soon. It’s going to have some cool shit in it, and this is one of our very first products. I can’t wait to make the announcement, and I’m hoping to have something up in time for Christmas.
