Continuing today's theme of "Superhuman Efforts that Deserve a Standing Ovation," we now turn our attention to The Legend of Zelda. MaJoRa, a member of the Zelda Fan Game Central community, has rendered all of the overworld from Ocarina of Time in the 2D style of A Link to the Past.


This is a project that proceeded, literally, pixel-by-pixel, over the course of nearly two years. This thread at ZFGC basically documents all of that work, which MaJoRa announced as completed on Friday. He began back in June 2010. (That is the Kokiri Forest above).


"Not to say this project is over by a long shot, I am going to see how far I can take this," MaJoRa writes. "I feel like ending now is too soon, I will find a new way to step this up." He is taking suggestions and constructive criticism about his work, more of which may be seen at the link below.

If I remember right, this guy was bashed by several pathetic "loyal" Zelda fans because OoT symbolize successful 3D transition of the series, and this map project could actually somehow ruin that reputation.
