The Legend of Zelda and Doom are two of the most influential video games of all time. Each game revolutionized gaming upon release, and nearly thirty years later, both are in the pantheon of all-time classic games. Intrepid modder Exkodius has spent nearly three years attempting to combine these two classics into one game by recreating The Legend of Zelda in the Doom engine! The results so far are pretty amazing, with Link running around Hyrule in the first person. Unfortunately, Exkodius does not appear to be able to complete the project, so they have released the mod files to the public in the hopes that someone else will be able to finish the conversion.
Swing by Mod DB if you want to check out Exkodius’s efforts to mod The Legend of Zelda into the Doom engine, or if you want to snag the project files and finish the conversion yourself!
