A Link Between Worlds prototype screen ⊟
According to this spirited Iwata Asks, the team working on the latest Zelda game at EAD couldn’t decide whether the mechanic of going into walls would be fun or not. So in something of a huff, assistant director and lead programmer Shiro Mouri made a prototype in one day.
"There’s this other programmer who is usually a really mild-mannered person, but [director Hiromasa] Shikata-san, who had suggested the idea, was so indecisive about it that the programmer got mad and angrily said, ‘I think the idea of entering walls sounds amazing, so what’s wrong with it?!’"
The whole process of development sounds oddly heated as they tell it, with producers constantly exclaiming “We can do that?!”
Here’s the trick behind the new Zelda's tilted view ⊟
Wow, I never gave too much thought to how the world must look with the game’s angled top-down perspective. Of course, everything straightens up in The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds when you switch to the side view while transforming into the painting/wall-walking mode.
Props to The Main Event for the appropriate Green Ranger GIF.

The original demo for the Steven Universe main title theme is up! Working on this was one of the most exciting moments for me on the show so far. Rebecca gave me a simple demo of herself singing all the parts and playing the omnichord, and I did everything else! I did the drums, bass, and chiptuney stuff in Logic. As for the acoustic tracks, I recorded myself playing ukulele (I also borrowed Rebecca’s banjolele) and my amazing board partner Joe performed my 3-part violin arrangement!
I had no idea if this demo would be used in the end, but our amazing composers Aivi and Surasshu liked it enough to use it! They put the final professional touches on it that you hear in the show version.
this demo is great because it makes me imagine four Rebecca Sugars all singing together
