In Ocarina Retold, my re-imagining of Ocarina of Time, I want to capture the essence of some of the best moments from the game.

Whether you first played it on the N64, GameCube, Wii VC, or 3DS, what were your favourite moments in Ocarina of Time?

Here are just a couple of mine, that I will certainly be trying to capture in some way in Ocarina Retold:

  • Stepping out into Hyrule Field for the first time. It might be kind of small by today's open-world standards, but after the compact and enclosed spaces of Kokiri Forest, The Lost Woods, and the Deku Tree, Hyrule Field seemed huuuge. The sweeping camera shot and grand swell of music are a perfect combination to arouse delight and desire for adventure.
  • Meeting the Forest Sage. It is already confusing to be a child, suddenly thrown into an adult body and with heavy responsibilities. Then there comes this. A lovely reunion with a childhood friend, someone who might understand what you're going through. But then you're stung with the realisation you'll be forever apart, with Saria destined (doomed?) to act as sage and protector...
  • Battling Twinrova. So many things about that battle are cool and memorable. For a start you fight two enemies at the same time: one of fire, one of ice. Defeating them involves figuring out the magical properties of your recently-acquired mirror shield. Eventually the two merge into one greater being, who has a really cool design. Once you finally defeat it / them, the two halves comically argue with each other on their way to the afterlife. Plus their musical theme is upbeat and catchy!

There are so many more, but I'm sure I'll cover some of them in future posts.

What are your favourite moments? Why? Have you tried to capture them in fanart or writing?

Comment or tweet me your thoughts.
You can follow me here or on my blog for Zelda poems and progress on Ocarina Retold.


In Ocarina RetoldI am re-imagining the story of Ocarina of Time in an epic poetic tale.

I been thinking about the idea of telling the tale from multiple viewpoints, giving some variety to the themes and feel of the tale. I'm leaning more heavily towards this now, and have already been rewriting some early parts to be told from POVs other than the "Hero".

The first POV will be the "Hero" (the stand-in for Link). The tale currently begins, as OoT does, with this "Hero" waking up from a dream - I've already posted a small preview of this chapter.

:bulletgreen: Are there are any characters you'd particularly like to see as POVs in this re-imagined telling?

:bulletgreen: As always, comment or tweet me if you have thoughts on this!


Hi everyone,

Just to say I have some new blog posts about Ocarina Retold, my poetic re-imagining of Ocarina of Time. I talk about my plans for the structure of the book and its characters.

:bulletgreen::bulletgreen::bulletgreen: Head over and comment with any thoughts you have! :la:

After a very long period of silence, I've returned to announce an awesome new project called:


Ocarina Retold!


:bulletred: As you know, I've written plenty of Zelda-themed pieces across the ages, including a couple of epic multi-part poems.

I'm now writing (and planning to publish as a book) a new epic Zelda-inspired poetic tale called Ocarina Retold.

:bulletred: Rather than keeping strictly to the events of the game, the idea is that Ocarina Retold is much more 'inspired by' Ocarina of Time. I aim to capture the atmosphere of the game, as well as major story beats... but things will not be exactly as they are in the game!

:bulletred: You can find out more at my new blog dedicated to the project

:bulletred: I will mostly post thoughts, progress, and discussion points over on my blog, so do follow that if you're interested in the project. I'll post some occasional snippets and drafts here too.

:bulletred: More details about the poetic tale, and other book contents, will come out as I make progress.


Let me know what you think below, or over at my blog

Hi all,

Just in case you don't follow status updates, I just wanted to say: this page has been long dormant... but I have a cool announcement coming very soon! :la:

I noticed you're a fan of Zelda. I looked over your work and really liked it!

Well, I'm making a Zelda-Style game, in the vein of the old ones. I post progress on my Deviantart page.

If you like it, tell your friends!
