Are you a Zelda fan ?
If so then you would be happy to know that a new FOSS project to clone Zelda and fix the “flaws” released it’s first “demo version” .
Mystery of Solarus DX is licensed under the GPL and is available in 4 languages : English, French, German and Dutch !


Zelda: Mystery of Solarus DX is an enhanced remake of our first creation, Mystery of Solarus. Written in C++, the project was unveiled on April 1st, 2008. Its objectives are to correct the many flaws of its predecessor: the battle system, the bosses, the use of items, etc. However, that is hardly all of of it as new graphical elements and musics will accompany you throughout the game. This Deluxe version will be the opportunity for you to relive the adventure in a brand new way, or even to discover it for the first time if you’ve never played it before!

Thank Max Zettlmeissl for letting me know of yet another wonderful game.

    Well… I wouldn’t call it FOSS. It’s already questionable to include unfree media and still call it FOSS, but including clearly illegal media (ripped sprites from Zelda, and copyrighted characters) makes it an absolute no-go as far as FOSS is concerned.

    P.S.: There are some really nice new RPG tilesets on since a few days though… would be cool if someone would take them and make a free zelda like RPG with the code from this project.

    I cannot really imagine what the point of remaking Zelda is.. It already runs great on cross platform SNES emulators. But indeed, an original game like Zelda would be neat.
