ZeldaLink and his misadventures have always made for some great spoofs and tributes.
First off the animation is huge, it's 12 megs big, so it'll take awhile to load. If you don't have the patients for that, then um... go watch something else. Something less insultingly huge. Perhaps a video involving cats, or excessive violence.
Well, here it is. The Legend of Link, Episode II: Oh Yes And Spiders.
It only took me forever to make it, and it required the help of dozens upon dozens of other talented people.
Also the first quarter or so of it is up on youtube. http://www.youtube.com/wa tch?v=WLtkxAPgkIA but it ends telling people to go to newgrounds to see the rest.
The Legend Of Link is a pixel art animation, made almost entirely with frame by frame animating.
Also, if you bother watching the whole thing (it is very long) Do watch all the credits, as many people other than me helped with this, most of them without newgrounds accounts and their effort disserves a moment of your time.
Updatey thing ---
Thanks to people who watched it. Thanks for front page. Though it's probably down now as clock day I'm sure has presented billions of frontpage worthy entries.
Especially thanks to everyone who gave all those really... really complimentary reviews. They creep me out but are very nice.
I do not thank those of you that hated the animation, but I do respect you. Especially those that reviewed it and said what they disliked. You're wrong of course, but I respect you.
--end updatey thing.
--Another updatey thing
I'm... back on the front page. That was unexpected.
Not that I mind. Whoever did that I thank them with all my little heart. It was kind of you.
