Today in gaming: ever been sitting around thinking to yourself, "Self, I'd like to use the bush-burning mechanic from the original Legend of Zelda and mix it with the 3D platforming aspects of the Ice Cavern from Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time"? Of course you have. I once wasted eight minutes in the shower thinking of that very thought.
Well, sadly someone beat us to it.
Shiro Games has released its new adventure RPG title Evoland. This game is very much along the lines of an old-school Legend of Zelda title. Except that it's also an old-school JRPG title like Pokemon. Except that it's also a modern adventure RPG. Except that it eventually becomes a 3D-world. So really, it's a trek through the entire history of modern gaming. But with one unifying story and some awesome game mechanics.
It's up on both Steam and GOG, but GOG has it on sale for $8.99US.
