Zelda’s Key

This tiny fan game was created within Nintendo’s game development software WarioWare D.I.Y., so it had to be designed within the limitations of this tool. Therefore a game could only have about 8 seconds of gameplay.




Some tricks were needed to cram in everything this game needed. Working within these constraints was an encouragement for creativity while the focus was on achieving true Zelda gaming into a tiny and fun game.



Since its online service shut down people have (luckily) found ways to share micro games anyway. So for the WWDIY folks who like to give it a shot, and are willing to dig (quite) a bit further, Zelda’s Key has now been released!
