Heya dudes, Tetiro here! I didn't know whether this was the right place for it so if it's not could someone move it to the right area? Anyway, Chiming Bells was started 1-2 years ago and during its end won NCFC's (Nintendo Community Fangame Convention) Best Zelda of 2009 but then died. But now it's back! And much better!
Prologue Before Ganondorf took over the land of Hyrule, before the Hero of Time pulled the Master Sword from the pedestal and before Zelda met the Hero of Time for the first time, the land of Hyrule nearly got torn apart by the power of the gods. The story I speak today is that time.
My story begins with a Hylian named Arn and his wife Medilia. When Arn is called to service by the Chief of the Royal Guard, it is to attend the ceremony of the Bell as a guard. Though after the ceremony, Arn's fate is has been set by the Blue Knight, the Triforce, the Chiming Bell and his to be born son.
So what's the game going to be about now?
Instead of being a final chapter of the Time series (OOT and MM), Chiming Bells will now become a sort of prologue to that tale. I say a sort of because although it's in the timeline of the Time series, it doesn't have that much relation to it.
Chiming Bell will follow the Hero of Chimes as he tries to stop Rodrick from claiming the Chiming Bell.

So what's different then the pre 2010 version?
Better sidequests. The ones for the last version were a bit bland.
Refined minigames. The minigames were good but not great then.
Custom Bosses. All the bosses are new. (Though a few of them immitate old bosses)
Custom overworld. Rather than copying OOT Hyrule, I will copy but make it more civilised. That's the aim.
Link -> 95% -> Dying
Items -> 100% -> Bottles
HUD -> 80% -> Key Counter,Maps?
Menu -> 90% -> Dungeon Menu Engine
Enemies and Bosses -> 95% -> Bug Ironing
Achievements -> 25%
Overworld -> 50% -> All
Dungeons -> 0% -> All
Story -> 0% -> All
Sidequests -> 0% -> All
Misc -> 0% -> All
How can we help?
I have graphics, designing and programming sorted though I really need the sounds and music. If anyone can help, please PM me. I need all the help possible with music.
I will be updating the topic with screenshots and an overworld demo later tonight! I'll also be releasing a Train demo.
So peace out for now. I hope you all will enjoy the demo upon it's release
