I like Looming Darkness too, it sums up the story. :laugh:

I'll just leave it. It also is a callback to one of my other favorite franchises. Kingdom Hearts. There's a card that's called Looming Darkness, when you use it, the next room is full of enemies.



Looming Definition: v appear as a shadowy form, especially one that is large or threatening.

(of an event regarded as ominous or threatening) seem about to happen.
"there is a crisis looming"

Maybe you don't like the name because it reminds you of "Fruit of the Loom" :D :laugh: :laugh: :huh:

Umm... it was gzip who like "Looming Darkness", not me :)
I second "Shroud of Darkness", which at least seems acceptable to you, me, and gzip, and have other alternatives as well:

Zelda: Dark Land
Zelda: Darkness Hour, or Hour of Darkness

But of course that's up to you. 8)

Yeah, I just couldn't bring myself to like "Looming Darkness". At a glance, it read like "Loony Darkness"  ;D

I knew Gzip wasn't you, I meant to quote you lol. What about Shadow of Darkness?

Ugh, I don't know. Maybe... Shards of Darkness? Perils of Darkness?
I imagine that the darkness has arrived to Hyrule and caused all kind of hazardous terrain changes like icy/volcanic/sinking/gloomy areas you had designed, so Perils of Darkness seems to be quite relevant here.
But that's just me :)

And I hope me keep arguing here don't distract you too much from finishing the hack ::)

The3Dude

Don't worry  :laugh:, I didn't take it as an argument, just suggestions. I appreciate all feedback. This hack is meant for the people. :beer:

Perils of Darkness sounds good.

I might just use Times of Darkness, or Night of Darkness.

Fits perfectly, especially because of what's been going on with Coronavirus in the real world. :-\

I've been mostly waiting on my testers feedback before I move on though. I needed a break :o. :-X ;D



EDIT: you collect pendants so maybe Pendants of Darkness would be good?

Perils sounds too similar to Trials and I used Trials for my Trial of Courage hack...

Peril: a source of danger
Trial: the act of testing something
So they're quite different, I think.

Pendants of Darkness? Are those originate from the darkness entity, story-wise?

Didn't "Shadow" and "Night" refer to the same lack of light as "Darkness"? Thus "Shadow of Darkness" and "Night of Darkness" doesn't make any sense, IMHO. Better to put them like "Shadow of Evil" or "Night of Terror"

More suggestions: "Reign of Darkness" and "Darkest Hour"

Sam Atoms

Forces of Darkness
Demons of Darkness
Crown of Darkness
Fields of Darkness

I have to say that Perils of Darkness is clicking in my head right now.
It just sounds and feels right.

The3Dude

I'm going with nosynose's Perils of Darkness suggestion. I really just didnt want to finalize the name until I finished the story. ::) It's finished and the name makes perfect sense :thumbsup:

Thank you everyone for your suggestions.  Especially nosynose :beer:

It's pretty good so far. I've already emailed you some things that need fixing. I'm looking forward to the next beta.

The3Dude

Yes I know it's been a long time, but it was for good reasons. :happy:

So I've done many things without even updating my testers. I've been cramming my high school physics class along with this so that also slows me down.

But here's what I've done.

1. ALL the graphics work is complete, I finished all the Boss sprites (Based on BS Zelda) and added "Vaati" as the final boss. I also fixed the edges of water touching the land sprites, they didn't look so good :-[ :laugh:.

2. I've made every 1st quest dungeon except Lv9

3. The overworld is slightly more comfortable to move around in, it already was though so this improvement is minor.

4. I also fixed some texts and edited a few hints.

All I did was list these fixes and not show anything, so I'll at least post these new Boss Sprites. ;D



Here's what Vaati would look like with his correct colors

Cool! Looking forward to giving this a spin.
Making Vaati the final boos was a great idea.

Can I try out this hack? It looks amazing

Yes I'll PM you a link. The dungeons can be done in any order pretty much, 4 are able to be explored in any order right off the bat, and the other 4 have riddles to enter them. Just be smart and don't explore wizzrobe dungeons first! Unless you really want good items first. :thumbsup:

It's totally fine man, I am sorry to hear that. Hope you're doing good. Sorry for seeing this so late.

I'm still in the process of healing, but I'm a lot better than I was.

The 2nd lava dungeon that leads to the Stepladder is one of the most creative level designs I've seen in a Zelda 1 game. I also enjoyed the Sunken Palace dungeon too.

The location you have for Dungeon 9 is great.

Thanks Ultima haha! I tried to make every non-starter dungeon (A.K.A the dungeons that have secrets to enter them) be based off of the in-game mechanics. One dungeon is based on pushable blocks, one is based on walk-through walls, one is based on bombable walls, one is based on passageways, Level-9  will be based on Sound effects, while combining every mechanic into one.
