Blurred Lines: A fan-made native PC port of the Nintendo 64 classic The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is finally complete and available to download online. Nintendo has traditionally not been fond of people tinkering with their IP. However, the PC port doesn’t use Nintendo’s original copyrighted assets or leaked content, blurring the boundaries of legality. Time will tell what Nintendo’s legal team comes up with.
Created by a group of community developers known as Harbor Masters, the game is built on two years of work to reverse engineer and rebuild the original in C code. The group even released a Nintendo Direct-style presentation to announce the game’s completion.
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was recently announced as a finalist for entry into the 2022 World Video Game Hall of Fame, alongside other memorable games including Resident Evil, NBA Jam and Ms. Pac-Man. The winners will be announced on May 5.
The PC port features HD graphics and full working audio, as well as support for widescreen monitors, keyboards, controllers, force feedback, and more. Future features would include twin-stick camera control, online play, text-to-speech support, Easter eggs, and support for Mac and Linux.
Check out the group’s Discord server and this GitHub to grab the tools needed to run the game. In particular, you should bring your own legal ROM to the table.
The group is also asking users to support the official release of Ocarina of Time on Nintendo Switch Online. Those who share proof of their membership will be given a special role on the group’s Discord server, we’re told.
