The Legend of Zelda: Clockwork Empire is Fictional, But Fantastic

I can’t really even say the name “Anita Sarkeesian” without someone wanting to start a fight usually, but in any case, this art project (sent in by Jon LeFlore) was indeed inspired by the video game feminist, who has spent a good deal of time lamenting the issues with The Legend of Zelda series. In nearly every installment over two decades, Zelda is always imprisoned, kidnapped, cursed or something like that, and it’s up to Link to save her.

Welllllll, Clockwork Empire, a theoretical game from artist Aaron Diaz looks to change all that. It portrays Zelda as fierce warrior mage and Link as a proper prince. It’s more than just a skin-covered, weapon-equippedversion of Zelda however. It’s an actual concept for a game that sounds pretty neat. There are more panels explaining some of the core concepts from the game which you can check out below.

Why couldn’t this game exist? Who cares who the hero is as long as it’s fun? The Legend of Zelda has done many crazier things than this over the year, so to imagine Clockwork Empire as a reality isn’t that much of a stretch of the imagination.
