The dark wizard Ganondorf, seeking to conquer Hyrule, vowed to put an end to the Hylian bloodline. Wielding the Triforce of Power, he took it upon himself to end the royal family once and for all. Princess Zelda is already dead, and the king is slain before Link's own eyes. This will be the Last King of Hyrule.

The pieces of the Triforce of Courage have been scattered to prevent Ganondorf from seizing them. Link, drawn by their essence of courage, must reforge it from its shards in order to face Ganondorf.

The kingdom is already lost. The royal bloodline has been ended. Waves of evil wash over Hyrule as Ganondorf's armies try to find the pieces of the Triforce before Link. Ganondorf, fortified in the Dark World beyond anyone's reach, has achieved absolute power. The situation is utterly hopeless.

Yet as he obtains the strength of the Triforce of Courage, Link presses on into this hopless situation regardless.

The Last King of Hyrule is RMN's collaborative Zelda game made in SMBX! This game was a collaborative effort to make a game in the SMBX game engine where Link is the main playable character. The SMBX engine is designed to make Mario games, and this game contains similarities to Mario-style platforming in some ways, playing like a cross between Zelda 2 and Mario 3.

As I continue offering up SMBX games, Alex keeps playing 'em. Sadly, this one suffered from some tech issues, but he got through it!

All of us get lost in the darkness; dreamers learn to steer by the stars.
How's this going? :D

OK, fans and cohorts, this is an announcement. We are now shooting for a deadline of February 21, the anniversary of the release of the original Legend of Zelda, to release this game. We are about 90% of the way done with the game and I think this deadline is very feasible! Stay tuned, and be sure to make us feel super bad if we miss it!

Damn! I got so distracted by other things (and this site's serious loading problems scared me away) that I didn't get a chance to pitch in. Oh well. So, the deadline's this Saturday huh? Think you'll get it done? I hope so. To make up for not contributing like I wanted to, I could give this a review once its done & I finish it, and no it won't be like that failure of a review that I made for Super RMN World. I'll give a detailed review of most of the notable levels if not all of them.
I'd really like to get rid of LockeZ. His play style is way too unpredictable. He's always like this too. If he ran a country, he'd just kill and imprison people at random until crime stopped.
the chance of us meeting my arbitrary deadline is now approximately negative thirty percent

sorry i failed

In my defense, some asshole decided to run a game jam with a premise that easily suckered in a lot of the same kinds of people who got suckered into this project. And then he extended it by an extra week after it had already started, the dastardly villain.

The new expected release date for The Last King of Hyrule is the Ides of Eventually. It is totally gettin' done though. Just, you know, at a slower than ideal speed. A speed that could accurately be called "embarassing" and "concerning."
i am the last king of deadlines (the delay is totally my fault everyone)

Don't you dare try to take all the blame for our astounding failure, kent! I've been working on one boss fight for...how long has it been now? My life is f@#$ing stupid.

This project has been missing deadlines since its community event days, though, so maybe it's fitting???

I've landed a new part-time temp job that opened up a lot more reliable game design time in my off hours. Expect good things soon. Publicly shame me if I don't produce.
I was never good with meeting deadlines. Although missing a deadline is a kind of motivator.
Don't hate me cause I'm Cute :)
hhmmmmm, no download hhmmmm, who can we blame....
OK fellas and gals, there is enough blame for everyone:)

Ya got 2 days for a finished product :)

Hope everyone is sane and not stressed out since MORE games than not finish up after their deadline.

Circumstance penalty for being the bard.
The project is close enough to done that I don't think we need to worry about it being in limbo forever.

I'd feel better if the finished product had a couple rounds of testing myself.
Oh yeah, testing needed! But March for sure!

March for sure!

That's just vague enough to work.
Oooo, new comments! I was actually wondering whatever happened to this, but I always kind of thought that this was pretty much almost done except for some behind the scenes last minute stuff needing to be finished. Either way, take your time guys. Even if you guys take ‘till April or May to finish it - I don’t seriously mind the wait. Besides, there’s nothing wrong with a little bit of additional testing here or there to make sure that this game is going to be as perfect as it can be.

And yeah, I suck with meeting deadlines too. I was supposed to review something here two months ago and still haven’t written the blasted thing yet. So, if I can forgive myself for my own laziness - I can forgive you guys.
I think y'all should attach a year to these dates you're handing out just to make sure there's no confusion what March or April you're talking about

but that's my out clause!

Oh! Me Me Me Me! I wanna test it!
So hows the project coming along? Any progress? Please don't tell me you guys gave up & left it for dead.
The 524 is for 524 Stone Crabs
We gave up & left it for dead
Nah, we are actually pretty close to finishing. :)

I gave up and died last week, but I'm all better now. I'm making adjustments to the final battle, then I need to go on a resource rampage. Should be fun.
I would have more makerscore If I did things.
Well, it's either less than 24 hours or one year before we release this.
as a rule, double any time estimates that a programmer makes regarding completion times. So if in February I said it'd take a month, then it will really take 2 months.
