If you haven’t been able to tell by now, I LOVE the new Legend of Zelda as announced at E3. But as much as their gameplay changes are an innovation for the LoZ franchise, not quite so for other games, which have been open-worlding, survival moding, resource harvesting, and canine companioning for over a decade.
Lately I’ve been tuning in to Brian Kesinger’s Instagram a ton. He’s this amazing illustrator and Walt Disney story artist who draws these amazing Star Wars/Calvin & Hobbes mashups (among others).
Anyway, he inspired me to try my own hand at some. Wouldn’t you know, Nintendo’s LoZ updates was so reminiscent of one particular game, so making this one was an easy choice.
