Castle Town

camalilium:

Can I just go off about what an amazing job the botw devs did with handling the atmosphere of Castle Town. The fact that you can just feel the true severity of the Great Calamity with how desolated the entire area is. Literally nothing is obstructing Link’s view of Hyrule Castle. There aren’t even any ruins, just a couple inches of house foundations and a few broken wood beams. It just captivates me and makes me feel a really intense sort of calm horror

but what interests and unnerves me the most is how location names in the area still appear

like we all know it doesn’t matter anymore yet the game is quietly reminding you of what once was there and fills you with a sense of just…emptiness

This game really is something else
