This game is a meta on many other games by this author Munguia, so to get all the inside jokes you might want to play a lot of older games of this author first and only then play this. Almost all games by Munguia are excellent so will mostly have a great time. It's recommended although not necessary that you have played the original Zelda game too.
Really nice game, exploration games like Zelda are my type. Made my want to play Zelda again.
This game had lots of exploring, sadly it didn't have much in terms of combat so it was all for sake of unlocking achievements which didn't make you stronger for the non-existing battles, there was no feeling of character getting stronger like in a proper RPG. That would be my only beef with this game.
Theater joke was excellent.
