The Legend of Zelda is set in idyllic Hyrule. But what if things in Hyrule weren't so pastoral? What if Zelda was set in the future and all of Hyrule had gone to shit?

Then it might look something like this. Website Dogbomber is in the process of redesigning Zelda so that it looks closer to something you'd find in, say, Fallout.


"I've always wondered what Hyrule would be like in some strange, parallel, bombed out universe," wrote Sean at website Dogbomber. "For the most part, I tried to stay true to the already established universe, keeping in mind certain mechanics and plot points."

There are character designs as well as setting and weapons.

Of course, Zelda games don't always have pastoral settings—take Wind Waker, in which Hyrule is underwater.
