Zelda Re-Make Needs Mac Testers
6:01 PM | Conrad Quilty-Harper | Comment on this story
The developers of Zelda Classic, a complete remake of the Nintendo Entertainment System classic The Legend of Zelda, have announced plans to port the game to OS X, and are looking for Mac beta testers. Here's some history about the development of this NES tribute game:
Zelda Classic is a tribute to (what we think is) the greatest video game of all time: Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda. It has been developed into an exact replica of the NES version that we all know and love. Beyond that, Zelda Classic allows the development of new quests that can use either the traditional graphics or enhanced graphics, as well as new enemies, items, and challenges.Zelda Classic has been in development since 1999 and has a massive user base of well over 3000. The developers are looking to expand this community to encompass the Mac platform.
Many features have been added in the past few years. Now, instead of being merely a Legend of Zelda Clone, Zelda Classic has become so much more. With ZQuest, Zelda Classic's Quest Creator, anyone can make their very own quest from scratch, and now, with all of the features that have been added in the past years, the possibilities are virtually endless for the style of quest you can make. If you can imagine it, you can create it (provided it's in 8-bit color). Quests have grown larger and longer, into seemingly epic games, that can take days, if not weeks to complete. With ZQuest, you can create your own original graphics, or import them from any game you like. In the past we've seen ZC versions of LEXX, (many versions of) Mega Man, Metroid and Super Mario Brothers, all in the classic quest style. As well as hundreds upon hundreds of first rate custom Zelda Quests.
