You’ve met a Terrible Fate…

Recently I was introduced to this album, it is a orchestrated musical experience of the Nintendo 64 game, The Legend of Zelda, Mejora’s Mask. Being a inspiring game in itself, this album truly captures the unique horror atmosphere of the game and tells a story unlike any other in the franchise.

Mejora´s Mask was a experiment from Nintendo, where early designer and director Eiji Aonuma. And shocked both the fanbase and the legacy of the franchise. By immersing the player in a nightmarish fable, where the beloved game world was to be inevitably destroyed by the moon and the player was left with only three days to save the whole world. Time plays a significant role in this album, as do the main characters.

Listen for yourself.
