The Guardian Legend

Author Comments

"If someone is reading this... I must have failed. This star "NAJU" was our home, but we were invaded by evil life-forms. Everyone except me was killed. I am going to try to activate the self-destruct device. If I fail, I would like you to do this task so this cannot happen to any other race. The self-destruct mechanism is protected by a safety device which is located in the underground corridors. Remove each seal and go deep inside NAJU. If you destroy all 10 safety devices, the self-destruct sequence will be activated. I don't have much time. I hope this message will not be read by anyone... it will mean that I have failed."

This was an old NES game that I had loved to play. The message above was (I believe) the first message you find, leading to the, at-the-time, amazing story.

To this day for me, The Guardian Legend is a titan in video game history.



Dude great job! I still play the game on my nes emulator great game. Try a Ghost in the shell version?

awesome drawing pretty good representation to an amazing game. i dont know if it was intentional but it has a feel like you inspired from "legend of Goardic" the prequel of The Guardian Legend.
the light reflection on the Armour is pretty good and i like the way you make skinweave texture. all in all pretty good image.

One of my favorite games for the NES. You certainly did it justice, my friend.
