The N64 turns 20!

Nintendo’s third console has made it to the 20 year mark! On this day some decades ago, the mighty 64-bit system was released in Japan.

The Nintendo 64 was most famous for helping usher in fully 3D environments to game consoles and had many timeless classics like Super Mario 64 and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.


Ocarina of Time being remade in 2D

The jump from 2D to 3D was a big thing in gaming technology. The industry really hasn’t that kind of graphical jump in a long time. Ever since the release of the Nintendo 64 and the PlayStation, 3D gaming environments have been a mainstay in console gaming. Remakes of games from the past are quite common these days, usually receiving a graphical upgrade. Though, with OoT 2D, a fan remake, the graphics are being reverted back into the second dimension. For its time, OoT was pretty groundbreaking, most Zelda games were. That being said, have a look at OoT 2D.

OoT 2D is a 2D remake of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time that is styled like ALttP. It has been attempted many times and by many different authors, the first attempt of which was over a decade ago!

This embodiment of OoT 2D will use no already-existing engine and no utilities such as Game Maker. While building it from scratch is slow and old-fashioned, this method of programming will grant full control over everything, resulting in a high-quality product! We hope you all like it!
